In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
Allaah [The Most High] said:
وَقَالَ مُوسَىٰ يَـٰقَوۡمِ إِن كُنتُمۡ ءَامَنتُم بِٱللَّهِ فَعَلَيۡهِ تَوَكَّلُوٓاْ إِن كُنتُم مُّسۡلِمِينَ
قَالُواْ عَلَى ٱللَّهِ تَوَكَّلۡنَا رَبَّنَا لَا تَجۡعَلۡنَا فِتۡنَةً۬ لِّلۡقَوۡمِ ٱلظَّـٰلِمِينَ
وَنَجِّنَا بِرَحۡمَتِكَ مِنَ ٱلۡقَوۡمِ ٱلۡكَـٰفِرِينَ
And Musa [Moses] said: ‘’O my people! If you have believed in Allah, then put your trust in Him if you are Muslims [those who submit to Allah’s Will].’’ They said: ‘’In Allah we put our trust. Our Lord! Make us not a trial for the folk who are Zaalimoon [ Wrong-doers]. And save us by Your Mercy from the disbelieving folk.’’ [10:84-86]
They asked their Lord not to put them to trial-neither by way of being placed under the authority of a people who would then put them to trial, nor defeated and then they fall into trial, and say: ‘’Had we been upon the truth [i.e. doubting the truth] we would not have been defeated’’.
