Allah Never Burden Human Over Their Capacity

burden over capacity

Every responsibilities from Allah that we have to deliver, and every tests, will never be heavier than what we can bear. He will never burden over our capacity.

Allah ﷻ says:

لَا يُكَلِّفُ اللَّهُ نَفْسًا إِلَّا وُسْعَهَا

“Allah does not burden any human being with a responsibility heavier than he can bear” [al-Baqarah 2:286].

Ibnu Kathir explains:

Allah does not ask a soul what is beyond its ability. This only demonstrates Allah’s kindness, compassion and generosity towards His creation.

This indicates that although Allah will question His servants and judge them, He will only punish for what one is able to protect himself from. As for what one cannot protect himself from, such as what one says to himself – or passing thoughts – they will not be punished for that.
