Every moment is a struggle, emotionally, spiritually, socially, physically and mentally.
Praying on time is a struggle, devoting yourself totally to the prayer is a struggle, the time you spent in prayer is a struggle.
Getting up to pray is a struggle, remembering Allah is a struggle, making time to read Quran is a struggle and a continuous fight between you and Shayt
an. Each spiritual action you want to perform is a struggle.
Controlling your emotions can be a big struggle, being patience when you can loose your temper, meeting people that you would rather run away from, communicating in a specific manner in specific situations, smiling when you feel like crying, chatting when you feel like staying quiet, speaking calmly when you want to shout. It can be a hard struggle when you have to deal with people who hurt you, working on forgiving others when you feel like revenging instead.
It is a struggle when you are in pain and have to cope with it, in grief and have to move on with your life, when you are exhausted but still have to work.
It is a struggle when you have to look different because you know you are on the right path but everyone else is resisting your principles. It is a struggle to wear modesty in a world of respecting women with less cloths on.
This life is a trial, we are rewarded for our patience and struggle to achieve what is required from us.
The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said:
