Hadith: “Whatever befalls a Muslim, whether it be fatigue, illness, sadness, resentment, sorrow, and even a thorn on which he pricked, Allah will certainly make it an atonement for some of his sins.”

Hadith: “Whatever befalls a Muslim, whether it be fatigue, illness, sadness, resentment, grief, and even a thorn on which he pricked, Allah will certainly make it an atonement for some of his sins.”

    Abu Sa'eed al-Khudri and Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with them both) reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: sorrow, and even the thorn on which he pricked, Allah will certainly make it an atonement for some of his sins.
    Valid. - Agreed upon by Al-Bukhari and Muslim


    The meaning of the hadith is this: illnesses, anxieties, sorrows, troubles, difficulties, fear and shocks that befall a Muslim become an atonement for his sins, erasing them. If a person adds to this patience and hope for a reward from Allah, then he will also receive a reward. When a person experiences a test, two scenarios are possible. First, the tested person remembers the reward and the hope of obtaining this reward from Allah. He receives a double benefit: atonement for sins and an increase in good deeds. Second: a person does not remember this, and his chest is shy, he begins to grumble or something similar happens to him, and he does not have the intention to patiently endure this test in the hope of receiving a reward from Allah. Then the test becomes only an atonement for his sins. Thus, he wins in any case: either the expiation of sins without receiving a reward, because he had no corresponding intention and he did not show patience and did not hope for a reward from Allah; or both the atonement of sins, and the reward from the Almighty and Great Allah. Therefore, when something unpleasant befalls a person, even a prick of a thorn, he should remember the hope for a reward from Allah, so that he will receive a reward along with the expiation of sins. This refers to the manifestations of Allah's mercy, His generosity and generosity: He puts the believer to the test, and then rewards him for this or forgives his sins. An important note: minor sins are forgiven a person. As for serious sins, sincere repentance is necessary for their forgiveness. nine0018

    7 little things that make you tired

    There are many things in this world that make you tired. And when we talk about exhaustion, we mean not only physical, but also emotional. Together, they deal a double blow to a person, turning even an extrovert and an optimist into an amorphous mass, drowning in despondency.

    Fatigue comes as a result of many small "attacks" on your psyche. If they are removed, it is quite possible that life will become easier and more enjoyable. nine0018

    1. Life in disorder

    Only a few are able to live in disorder and not react to it in any way. It is not at all a matter of social condemnation or upbringing, but of evolutionary mechanisms.

    Evolution has instilled in us a love of order for one simple reason: this way you can quickly detect threats. Imagine that you are an ancient man, and your cave is a mess. A poisonous spider can hide under one of the leftovers, and when you want to finish eating the apple you started earlier, a formidable enemy can attack you sharply. nine0018

    Tens of thousands of years have passed, but the mechanism has not disappeared. Only now he was supplemented by constant irritation from the inability to find something among the many things. It keeps growing and growing until you explode like a volcano and destroy half of the apartment and take the other half to the dump.

    Take at least a few minutes a day to clean up your apartment and workplace, and you will feel how it becomes easier to breathe.

    2. Minor unfinished business

    People remember well the complex and large-scale tasks that they try to perform in the first place. This is true even for not particularly responsible individuals.

    But there are other unfinished business that most do not notice - something small and insignificant, for example, daily routine. Like a mess, such small things do not pile up in a crowd, but accumulate gradually, imperceptibly for you. And now you are already sitting among a mountain of tasks, each of which can be completed within a couple of minutes, and together they will take a whole day. nine0018

    Understanding this is very tiring and makes you feel discouraged. How to deal with it? Distribute tasks evenly and start doing them right away. Fatigue will not go away immediately, and, moreover, it will even increase for a short time. But over time, when you solve these small tasks, you will feel relief.

    3. Regular skipping of sports training

    If the previous paragraphs sound logical, then this one causes misunderstanding. How can skipping a hard bodily action make you even more tired? Wouldn't it be better to lie on the bed and watch a series instead? nine0018

    No, not better. The fact is that the body gets used to a certain kind of stress. He generally loves stability, and the slightest shifts confuse him. Just try to go to bed and get up always at different times and you will understand what we are talking about.

    In addition, despite physical exertion, sports training provides additional energy through a better supply of oxygen and other processes. And in general, skipping workouts, you lose self-esteem, which drives you into apathy about your helplessness, and this state quickly turns you into an amoeba. nine0018

    4. Stooped

    Most people today work in offices and don't lift anything heavier than a computer mouse. And yet they feel more tired than factory workers. All because of a sedentary lifestyle, as well as stoop. Look at you right now. Can you say that your posture is perfect? Unlikely.

    Stoop leads to impaired blood supply to organs, including the brain, and this leads to oxygen starvation and a constant feeling of fatigue. So when you round your back without noticing, you add a few more points to your fatigue. nine0018

    5. Too much time indoors

    It is not natural for people to stay indoors for long periods of time. By adhering to such a “cave” life, we harm ourselves by not getting the right amount of sunlight, vitamin D, oxygen, and other components essential for life.

    You can even argue which is worse: a sedentary lifestyle or a permanent stay in the apartment and office. Although no, there is their combination, inherent in most city dwellers. nine0018

    Go outside more often and you will feel your tiredness subside. Although at first you may feel even worse, as the normal flow of fresh air and sunlight has become unaccustomed to the brain.

    6. Controlling every aspect of your life

    As with clutter and small unfinished business, the burden of self-control builds over time and becomes more pressing with each new attempt to keep all aspects of your life in check. And this is not about some “large-scale” matters like nutrition control and sleep patterns, but about micromanagement. nine0018

    It is micromanagement, the attempt to control unimportant aspects, that causes the most fatigue. Therefore, when you catch yourself thinking that you are somehow trying too zealously to keep everything under your strict gaze, you should calm down and understand that you cannot control everything in this world.

    7. Emotional games

    Emotions can, and sometimes need to be controlled. But when you constantly pretend to be someone you're not, it's pretty tiring.
