THIS WORLD IS A PLACE OF FITNAH, CALAMITIES AND TRIBULATIONS(Sheikh Isa Ali Pantami)


Our great scholars said that, this
world is the place of striving and
the Hereafter is the place of reward
or punishment, where the believers
will be rewarded with Paradise and
the disbelievers will be punished
with Hell.
Paradise is good and none but
those who were good will enter it.
Allaah is Good and accepts
nothing but that which is good. So
the way of Allaah with His slaves is
to test them with calamities and
tribulations, so that the believer
may be known from the kaafir and
so that the truthful may be
distinguished from the liar, as
Allaah says (interpretation of the
meaning):
“Do people think that they will be
left alone because they say: ‘We
believe,’ and will not be tested.
And We indeed tested those who
were before them. And Allaah 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 Allaah knows all that
before putting them to test)”
[Al’ankabut 29:2-3]
Victory and success cannot be
achieved except after tests.
Allaah tests us, sometimes with
calamities and sometimes with
blessings, to show who will be
thankful and who will be ungrateful,
and who will obey and who will
disobey, then He will reward or
punish them on the Day of
Resurrection:
“and We shall make a trial of you
with evil and with good. And to Us
you will be returned”
(al-Anbiya’ 21:35)
Testing is according to one’s faith;
the most severely tested among
mankind are the Prophets, then the
next best and the next best. The
Prophet (peace and blessings of
Allaah be upon him) said: “When I
fall ill, my pain is equivalent to the
pain of two men among
you.” (Narrated by al-Bukhaari,
5648).
May Allah grant us success after
trials, calamities and tribulations
