Elevation Versus Disgrace
« on: February 14, 2013, 01:16:31 AM »
"Knowledge That Needs To Be Implemented"
Why Don't I Get Along With Majority Of The People?
Why Am I Only Comfortable With Myself? Am I Antisocial?

It requires faith, patience, and the will to behave according to what He (SWT) is pleased with at a time when Qadr (destiny) takes place or an unexpected situation is ordained for us.

This is how Allah (SWT) tests the obedience of His slaves and this is His Sunnah, or way of doing things, which will never change. We can see it in Chapter 29 Al-Ankabut as below...

Chapter 29 Al-Ankabut
In Verses 2 - 3 Allah SWT Says
Do Men Think That They Will Be Left Alone
On Saying, "We Believe,
And That They Will Not Be Tested?
We Did Test Those Before Them,
And Allah Will Certainly Know Those Who Are True
From Those Who Are False!
