Selamat menduduki peperiksaan kawan2!

Asalaamu alaykum. Just want to share this.
Its exam season, and so I imagine many students are stressed and worried about their future and studies. In any situation, the remembrance of Allah can be a great benefit. Here are some reminders which may offer comfort and steadfastness.

Our beloved Prophet (pbuh) said: -
"Allah has commanded that everything one does, should be done with excellence (ihsan). When you sacrifice, sacrifice well. Sharpen your knife and make it easy for the animal to be slaughtered. " (Sahih Muslim)

So know that studying, revising and aiming for good results is in itself an act of worship with the right intention. And struggling to do well in them is in itself fufilling a command of Allah.

"If any adversity comes to you, do not say: 'If I had only acted in such-and-such a way, it would have been such-and-such; ' but instead, say: 'Allah has decreed it, and what He willed, He has done,' for verily, if opens the way for the work of Satan." (Sahih Muslim)

So if you didn't do well in an exam don't have regrets and think of what went wrong. If you're faced with difficulty or problems, don't wish them away but accept the will of Allah and keep on going. Look towards the future and trust in Allah.
Allah says in the Quran: -

O you who believe! Seek assistance through patience and prayer; surely Allah is with the patient. (Surah Baqarah, Verse 153)

The most important message we can take in times of hardship (and even in times of ease). Remember the prayer is not a burden upon us but rather a blessing a source of strength and a connection with Allah, the most compassionate and caring one.

"And when My slaves ask you (O Muhammad) concerning Me, then (answer them), I am indeed near (to them by My Knowledge). I respond to the invocations of the supplicant when he calls on Me (without any mediator or intercessor) . So let them obey Me and believe in Me, so that they may be led aright. " (Surah Baqarah, Verse 186)
