One of them asked me if there is any 'quick fix' book available

You didn't tell them about Mushtaq Ahmed? :grin:

Mushtaq Ahmed?

Hahahahah... No. It's a very good book for its time but outdated now. Guyton and Ganong it is. :dwarf:

Sometimes we take things as burdens that are not meant to be. Sometimes we create our own artificial burdens. We need to reflect and see which burdens we have created for ourselves and which burdens have truly come from Allah.

Right, but the distinction between self-created burdens, and the burdens from Allah is not always a matter of black and white. It can be difficult to decide correctly whether a person should blame himself for the burden or blame others or consider it as a divine test only. Sometimes, it can be a combination of all three together.

Furthermore, if one has failed many earlier tests in life, later tests turn out to be more difficult, because basic skills have not yet been mastered. (I am in this position currently.)

One is then forced to learn several things at once, including both the basics and the advanced material(s).

As some of you know I teach in a college.

The first part of your post reminds me my old girl  . . . long, long ago . . . in a Life far, far away.  :rolleyes:"Ok, it is from Star Wars."

When she was in grad school she taught biology to upper undergraduates.

She was disappointed that "they didn't put the time in" and so forth. 

So when she finished her schooling, she changed her career plan and went to work for a corporation rather than teach and do research.

@hasanhh you seem to disagree behind the shadow/curtain of darkness.

The good part about God's tests is that "surely there is also respite with tribulation" (usran /yusra). Some of us spend the respite times complaining and worrying without being thankful. While times at colleges and universities when studying certain fields can be pure torture with no respite even on sundays, and meant only for young perfectly dedicated people.
