Wa Alaikum al-salam Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh

Thanks for your question

There are different things to consider in hardships of life, maybe the most important thing is paying attention to the fact that this is a divine test. Allah (swt) tests people in different ways, Quran 21:35 says ” We will test you with good and ill by way of test,” and definitely there are great rewards for having patience in the path of divine tests, Imam Sadiq as says “If a believer knew what reward lies for him/her in suffering tribulations, he would wish he could be cut into pieces with a scissor”.

may Allah swt to help us succeed in difficulties of life

and seek his protection from misguiding troubles.
We pray for health for your daughters.
