why does allah puts burden on the weak

Q:

Why Does Allah puts burden on the weak

A:
Waalykum salam 

 
Thank you for your Question.
 
Allah doesn’t put burden on the weak. HE is too merciful to do that. In the holy Quran HE says: 
“Allah charges no soul except to its capacity. For it is what it has earned, and against it what it has gained. ‘Our Lord, do not take us to account if we have forgotten, or made a mistake. Our Lord, do not burden us with a load as You have burdened those before us. Our Lord, do not over burden us with more than we can bear. And pardon us, and forgive us, and have mercy on us. You are our Guide, so give us victory over the nation, the unbelievers.’” (2:286)
 
The word burden here is what the Human is assuming as a burden on himself but in reality it’s a blessing that he is tested in this world and only comes out to be something more stronger and durable. 
Just like most precious things in the dunya, the human also goes through some severe processes to shine out like the way they do. All the heroes on earth have succeeded to get over an obstacle and that’s how they achieve their title! 
 
Hope this answered your Question.
