Trials and Tests Distinguish the Believer from the Hypocrite – Shaykh Fawzān

Shaykh Ṣālih Al-Fawzān (hafidahullāh):

From the Way of Allāh – The Glorified, The Most High – with his creation, is that he trials and tests them. He does not leave them without trials and tribulation, for if he was to leave mankind without trialling them, then the believer would not be distinguished from the hypocrite and the truthful would not become clear from the liar.

[4] The Blessing of Security’ by Shaikh Muhammad Baazmool

Without security, there cannot be a (good or fruitful) life for the people! And without security, neither the worldly nor religious affairs will be established (properly). Fitan leads to loss of security, then a pleasant life of obedience to Allaah (The Most High) alternates into a life of hardship due to disobedience to Allaah and departing from His Sharee’ah; whereas fear of Allaah and listening to the rulers (in what is good) and obeying them are the foundations of security. And opposing this (leads to) the loss of a pleasant life and falling into a life of hardship. Allaah (The Most High) said:

وَمَنْ أَعْرَضَ عَن ذِكْرِي فَإِنَّ لَهُ مَعِيشَةً ضَنكًا وَنَحْشُرُهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ أَعْمَىٰ

But whosoever turns away from My Reminder (i.e. neither believes in this Qur’an nor acts on its orders, etc.) verily, for him is a life of hardship, and We shall raise him up blind on the Day of Resurrection.[20:124]

People fall into agony of fitan, just as Al Hasan Al-Basri said,  ‘’Indeed, Al-Hajjaaj is the punishment of Allaah; so do not repel the punishment of Allaah with your own hands. Rather you must submit and show humility because indeed Allaah (The Most High) said:

وَلَقَدْ أَخَذْنَاهُم بِالْعَذَابِ فَمَا اسْتَكَانُوا لِرَبِّهِمْ وَمَا يَتَضَرَّعُونَ

“And indeed We seized them with punishment, but they humbled not themselves to their Lord, nor did they invoke (Allaah) with submission to Him.’’ [23:76]

To be continued…InShaaAllaah
