“Do people think that they will be left alone because they say: ‘We believe,’ and will not be tested
“Do people think that they will be left alone because they say: ‘We believe,’ and will not be tested.
(Quran - 3:185 - interpretation of the meaning)
"Everyone will taste death. And only on the day of resurrection will you be paid your wages in full. Whoever is removed away from the fire and admitted to paradise, he indeed is successful. THE LIFE OF THIS WORLD IS ONLY THE ENJOYMENT OF DECEPTION."
[al-‘Ankaboot 29:2-3 - interpretation of the meaning]
And We indeed tested those who were before them. And Allah will certainly make (it) known (the truth of) those who are true, and will certainly make (it) known (the falsehood of) those who are liars, (although Allah knows all that before putting them to test)”
Wealth and children are a trial by means of which Allah tests His slaves, to know who will give thanks for them, and who will be distracted from Allah by them:
Sometimes Allah tests His slaves with calamities in order to raise them in status and to expiate for their sins, as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
“No misfortune or disease befalls a Muslim, no worry or grief or harm or distress – not even a thorn that pricks him – but Allah will expiate for some of his sins because of that.”
