“[He] who created death and life to test you [as to] which of you is best in deed.” Surah Mulk Ayah 2
In life we will face many tests, Allah has told this in the Qur’an.
This is not to torture us but to test and build our character. In Surah Baqarah it tells us “Allah does not burden a soul beyond that it can bear.” Surah Baqarah Ayat 286
We may have difficulties and challenges but nothing which we can’t handle. All our trials in life are things which can push us to the edge but not enough to knock us off the cliff. Subhanallah.

Hadith Full Dua
Ali (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
A slave who had made a contract with his master to pay for his freedom, came to me and said: “I am unable to fulfill my obligation, so help me.” He said to him: “Shall I not teach you a supplication which the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) taught me? It will surely prove so effective that if you have a debt as large as a huge mountain, Allah will surely pay it for you. Say: ‘Allahumm-akfini bihalalika ‘an haramika, wa aghnini bifadlika ‘amman siwaka (O Allah! Grant me enough of what You make lawful so that I may dispense with what You make unlawful, and enable me by Your Grace to dispense with all but You).”
