The 8 States of Life

This life is but just a switching of states. The poet/scholar mentions;
ثمانية تجري على الناس كلهم و لابد للإنسان أن يلقى الثمانية
سرور وحزن واجتماع وفرقة و يسر وعسر ثم سقم وعافية
‘Eight states pass by all people, and man will inevitably meet each one…
[They are:]
1) Happiness
2) Sadness
3) In company
4) Alone
5) Ease
6) Difficulty
7) Illness
8 ) Good health’
It’s not about what specific situation we are in. It’s about our response to Allah’s Qadr.
