Bismillahi walhamdulillahi 'alaa rasulillah,
Allah says in the Qur'an:
"So verily, with the hardship, there is relief; Verily, with the hardship, there is relief!
[Suratu Inshirah, verses 5-6]
Two for the price of one! How's that for a deal?
So if you find yourself in a position of hardship, ask yourself: What ease am I forgetting?
And also, the use of with, shows that the two are so closely related as to be companions--they are together!
And Allah is the source of peace, As-Salaam.
