The Punishment in This World Is Better Than in Hereafter

punishment in hereafter

The punishment from Allah in this world, is way better and easier than the punishment in the Hereafter.

Anas (may Allah blesses him) reported that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:

إِذَا أَرَادَ اللَّهُ بِعَبْدِهِ الْخَيْرَ عَجَّلَ لَهُ الْعُقُوبَةَ فِي الدُّنْيَا وَإِذَا أَرَادَ اللَّهُ بِعَبْدِهِ الشَّرَّ أَمْسَكَ عَنْهُ بِذَنْبِهِ حَتَّى يُوَافِيَ بِهِ يَوْمَ

“If Allah wills good for His slave, He hastens his punishment in this world, and if He wills bad for His slave, He withholds from him (the punishment for) his sin, until He requites him for it on the Day of Resurrection” [at-Tirmidhi; classed as sahih by al-Albani in Sahih at-Tirmidhi].

So if Allah punish you with calamity or misfortune matters, be patient and ask taubah (forgiving) from Allah! It removes your sins and it’s better than the punishment in the Hereafter.
