5 Reason on Why Does Allah SWT Test Us

Post by Noor'e Sahar on Fri Aug 06, 2010 12:47 am

Allah tests His believing servants with various types of crises and disasters in order to:
1) Reveal the Patient from the Impatient:

“And certainly, We shall test you with a bit of fear, hunger,
loss of wealth, lives and fruits. But give glad tidings to the patient
ones who, when afflicted with a calamity, say: “Truly! To Allah we
belong and truly, to Him we shall return.” They are those upon whom are
the blessings, descend from their Lord, and they receive His Mercy, and
it is they who are guided.” (Surah Al-Baqarah 2:155-157)

وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَنْ يَعْبُدُ اللَّهَ عَلَىٰ حَرْفٍ ۖ فَإِنْ أَصَابَهُ
خَيْرٌ اطْمَأَنَّ بِهِ ۖ وَإِنْ أَصَابَتْهُ فِتْنَةٌ انْقَلَبَ عَلَىٰ
وَجْهِهِ خَسِرَ الدُّنْيَا
“And among mankind is he who worships Allah as if he were
upon the very edge (i.e. in doubt); if good befalls him, he is content
with it;. But if a trial befalls him, he turns back on his face. He
loses both this World and the Hereafter. That is the evident
loss.”(Surah al-Haj 22:11)

“So, it is a must for the souls to be nurtured by way of tests, and
to be severely tested during the course of the battle between truth and
falsehood with fear and hardship, and with hunger and decrease in wealth
and life and fruits. This testing is a necessity so that the believer
can give his share of what his belief requires; so that it becomes dear
to him in accordance with that he gives for its sake of sacrifice and
burden; so that it becomes dear to him in accordance with what he is
willing to give for its sake! The bearers of worthless beliefs that do
not require any type of sacrifice will not hesitate to abandon their
beliefs at the first sign of hardship. So, the burden here is the
personal price that one pays so that this belief becomes dear and
valuable in the hearts of its bearers before it becomes dear to the
hearts of anyone else. Whenever they experience pain for its sake, and
every single time they are forced to give something up for its sake, it
becomes even dearer and more valuable to them, and they become even more
honored with it. With this, nobody else will realize its value until
they see how its bearers are tested because of it and how patient they
are upon such tests.”
(’Fi Dhilal al-Qur’an’; 1/145)
2) Remove Our Sins and Reward the Righteous:

And, when he was old enough to walk with him, he said: “O my son! I
have seen in a dream that I am slaughtering you, so what do you think?”
He said: “O my father! Do that which you are commanded, if Allah Wills,
you will find me to be of the patient.” Then, when they had both
submitted, and he had laid him prostrate on his forehead, and We called
out to him: “O Ibrahim! You have fulfilled the dream!” Verily! Such do
We reward the good-doers.” (Surah as-Saffat :102-7)
Sa’ad bin Abi Waqqas reported that he asked the Messenger of Allah
(SAW): “Which of the people are tested most severely?” Rasulullah (SAW)
replied: “The Prophets, then the righteous, then those who are most like
them, then those who are most like them from the people. A man is
tested according to his religious commitment. So, if his religious
practice is sound, then his testing is increased, and if his religious
practice is weak, then his testing is reduced. A servant continues to be
tested until he walks the Earth without a single sin on him.” (Ahmad,
3) Purify the Ranks and Distinguish the Righteous from the Wicked:

“Allah will not leave the believers in the state in which you are now
until He distinguishes the wicked from the good.” (Surah Al ‘Imrân
“And when the believers saw the Confederates, they said: “This is
what Allah and His Messenger had promised us, and Allah and His
Messenger had spoken the truth,” and it only added to their faith and
submissiveness.” (Surah Ahzaab 33:22)
“Allah might make easy the affairs of the people of evil so that they
may increase in sin and corruption, and so that they might increase in
their buildup of sins and crimes. Then, he may deal with them in this
World or the Hereafter – depending on His Wisdom and Decision – on
account of this sinister buildup of deeds! On the other hand, He may
also prevent them from ease so that they would increase in evil and sin
and crimes and suffocation, eventually losing hope in the Mercy of
Allah, resulting in an increase in their buildup of evil and
misguidance. Likewise, Allah can make easy the affairs of the people of
good so that they may become established in their righteous actions and
carry out as much of them as they can while increasing in their
sustenance, so that they may thank Him for these blessings with their
hearts, tongues, and pleasant actions. With all of this, they increase
in a buildup of good deeds that they rightfully deserve with Allah
because of their righteousness and because of the good that Allah Knows
is in their hearts. On the other hand, he may also prevent them from
ease in order to observe their patience upon this state, as well as
their confidence and hope in their Lord, their relaxation at the
realization of His Power, their being pleased with Him as their only
Lord – and He is better than all others – resulting in an increase in
their buildup of good.”
(Fi Dhilal al-Qur’an)
4) Emphasize the Hardships of This World in Comparison to the Hereafter:

“Blessed is He in Whose Hand is the kingdom, and He is Able to do all
things. The One Who has created death and life in order to test you and
see which of you is best in deed, and He is the All-Mighty, the
Oft-Forgiving.” (Surah al-Mulk 67:1-2)
5) Expose the Reality of the Human Being:

“Verily, We have created man from drops of mixed semen in order to
test him, so We made him hearer, seer. Verily, We showed him the way, so
he is either grateful or ungrateful.” (Surah al-Insan 76: 2-3)
“Verily, We have made that which is on earth as an adornment for it
so that We may test them as to which of them are best in deeds.” (Surah
al-Kahf 18:7)
“And it is He Who has made you generations after generations,
replacing each other on the earth. And He has raised you in ranks – some
above others – that He may test you in that which He has bestowed on
you. Surely, your Lord is Swift in retribution, and certainly He is
Oft*-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” (Surah al-An’am 6:165)
A human being is tested so that he may come to know the reality of
himself and others. Life is consists of constant testing; testing with
what is bad, or testing with what is good. However, what is best for the
believer may be found in what he hates, and what is bad for him may be
found in what he likes. The true believer is the one who loves that
which Allah has chosen for him. So, if He tests him with something that
he loves, he thanks Him, and if He tests him with that which he hates,
he is patient and thanks Him in this case, as well. And Allah – the
Glorified – gives the believer in accordance with what will lead to his
happiness in either this World or the next. So, if it is better for him
to have something, Allah gives it to him. If it is better for him not to
have something, Allah prevents him from having that thing, just as one
who is sick is prevented from too much food or water. Therefore, it is
upon a person to completely submit to Allah – the Glorified – in regards
to what He has chosen for him, and to be pleased with what Allah has
given him, and to understand that if Allah prevents him from something,
then it is because Allah wishes to save him from being tested with that

Assalam o alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu

JazakALLAH KHAIR jaani.
Exactly. Insaan samajhta hai us pe museebat ayi ghum aya kiunk uski zindagi he aisi hai. ya usse kabhi koi khushi nai mil sakti
per ye sab kehna ghalt hai.

ALLAH k her kaam mein koi na koi bhalayi hoti hai jo humari soch se bhi kaafi upper hoti hai.
ALLAH humesha humara bhala chahta hai.aur insaan jab tak khud apni halat nai sudharega to ALLAH bhi uski halat ko wese rehna deta hai.

ALLAH hum sab ko deen k sahi raaste pe chalne ki taufeeq ata fermaye
Ameen Sum Ameen
