Al Anbiya V.83-112
So We responded to him and removed what afflicted him of adversity. And We gave him [back] his family and the like thereof with them as mercy from Us and a reminder for the worshippers [of Allāh]. [Al Anbiya:84]
When I heard that Ayoub (as) was very rich and had a lot of children and was living lavishly and then had everything taken away and also got a physical skin disease I began to think of the trial he went through. It is not that Allah (Swt) did not love him, in fact he was the prophet sent to the people. When he called upon Allah swt he was given everything back in double. I learnt that sometimes we are put in a trial and upon being patient we can get back more than was lost. These situations are like hidden blessings and it all depends on the way that you react in every situation.
