Allah Created Life And Death To Test You | He Tests With Fear, Hunger, Loss Of Wealth Lives And Fruits
We will certainly test you with a touch of fear and famine and loss of property, life, and crops. Give good news to those who patiently endure.
اور ہم کسی نہ کسی طرح تمہاری آزمائش ضرور کریں گے، دشمن کے ڈر سے، بھوک پیاس سے، مال وجان اور پھلوں کی کمی سے اور ان صبر کرنے والوں کو خوشخبری دے دیجیئے
Reference: Quran (2:155)
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Great reward comes with great trials. When Allah loves a people, He tests them, and whoever accepts it attains His pleasure, whereas whoever shows discontent with it incurs His wrath.”
Every person is faced with trials and tribulations at one point or another in their lives. It is patience that helps the believer cope. When calamity befalls a patient believer, it does not crush him. Instead, the believer endures, persists, and has hope in the mercy of Allah and the rewards that are awaiting him on the Day of Judgment.
The companion, Sa`d ibn Abi Waqqas asked, “O Messenger of Allah, which of the people are most sorely tested?” He said, “The Prophets, then the next best and the next best. A man will be tested in accordance with his level of religious commitment. If his religious commitment is strong, he will be tested more severely, and if his religious commitment is weak, he will be tested in accordance with his religious commitment. Calamity will keep befalling a person until he walks on the earth with no sin on him.
