 (I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)


(In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)

وَمَآ أَرْسَلْنَا قَبْلَكَمِنَ ٱلْمُرْسَلِينَ إِلَّآ إِنَّهُمْ لَيَأْكُلُونَ ٱلطَّعَامَ وَيَمْشُونَ فِى ٱلْأَسْوَاقِ وَجَعَلْنَا بَعْضَكُمْ لِبَعْضٍ فِتْنَةً أَتَصْبِرُونَ وَكَانَ رَبُّكَ بَصِيرًا 20

20b.  And We have appointed some of you a test for others: Will ye be steadfast? And thy Lord is Ever-Seer. 20b.  Wa  ja-‘alNaa  ba’-zakum  li-ba’-zin  fitnah.  ‘A-tasbiruun.  Wa  kaana  Rabbuka  Basiiraa. 

(Section 2)


It is commanded: All kinds of people exist in the world as good, wicked, strong, weak, uncivilized, polite, true, liar, rich and poor, intelligent and silly, those who guide toward straight path and those who mislead. Condition of all of them is different from one another. You know that why it was done so and why the entire people were not made of one kind. Moreover, every individual was bestowed with different habits, qualities, manners, nature and peculiarities.


The aim from all above is to test one by means of the other. It is required to observe that whether the rich helps the poor or drives him out from a distance, whether the poor disgraces himself before the rich or have patience by sitting in a corner, whether the powerful presses the weak down or supports him, whether the wise person tries to know the Truth himself and informs others or begins to reap casual benefits of the world?


Like this, patience and endurance of the Prophets (peace be upon them) are checked also by means of obstinacy and rebellion of those who deny Allaah Almighty. He desires to test the Belief of the Believers by means of tricks and impostures of Disbelievers. He wishes to see that whether good people lose not patience and restraint due to being utterly sick of tyrants’ violence and tyranny?


By means of this test, Allaah Almighty augments the grades of good people. Only their good qualities are not useful but they have to strive hard against the conduct of the opponents in the field, then faults of their good qualities will expose.


Allaah Almighty has established the system of the world by His Knowledge. He knows and understands well that how the perfection of human beauties is acquired.
