You will be tested

And We will surely test you with something of fear and hunger and a loss of wealth and lives and fruits, but give good tidings to the patient

Quran 2:155

Out of His love, God lets the world hurt you and break you, not because He wants to destroy you, but because He wants to show you your hidden strengths that can only be manifested in the cocoon of trials.

Secrets of Divine Love by A. Helwa

Do people think that they will be left alone because they say: “We believe,” and will not be tested?

Quran 29:2

We are like photographs; our faith is developed in the darkroom of the trials we face.

Secrets of Divine Love by A. Helwa

Sa’d ibn Abi Waqqas (may Allah be pleased with him) said: I said: “O Messenger of Allah, which of the people are most sorely tested?” He said: “The Prophets, then the next best and the next best. A man will be tested in accordance with his level of religious commitment. If his religious commitment is strong, he will be tested more severely, and if his religious commitment is weak, he will be tested in accordance with his religious commitment. Calamity will keep befalling a person until he walks on the earth with no sin on him.”
