Question & Answer
Those who are tested in this world are rewarded but what about those who are happy through out life?

Assalaamu alaykum, we know from many ahadith that people who're tested in this world (in terms of health/wealth/loss of loved ones etc ) are rewarded (or their sins are erased) if they're patient & that Allah tests those whom He loves, so what about a practising Muslim who's hardly ever been sick or who's never lost something significant,, does that mean that Allah doesn't love them or that their punishment is stored for the Aakhirah? Jazakumullaahu khair

Answer:



بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”

Dear brother, if Allah has blessed one with health and wealth and has not suffered in this world; in no way does it mean that Allah does not love him/her. Allah may test you with ease as much as he tests you with hardship. A most difficult situation can be a gift from lord.

Allah says in the glorious Quran: Do the people think that they will be left to say, "We believe" and they will not be tried? Quran [29:2]
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]

For a believer, the test is never over, even if the difficulties are over and luxuries are everywhere.

Allah says in the glorious Quran: And as for man, when his Lord tries him and [thus] is generous to him and favors him, he says, "My Lord has honored me." But when He tries him and restricts his provision, he says, "My Lord has humiliated me." Quran[89:15-16]

Suhaib reported that Allah's Messenger (pbuh) said: Strange are the ways of a believer for there is good in every affair of his and this is not the case with anyone else except in the case of a believer for if he has an occasion to feel delight, he thanks (God), thus there is a good for him in it, and if he gets into trouble and shows resignation (and endures it patiently), there is a good for him in it. Sahih Muslim [Book 42, Hadith 7138]. And Allah alone knows the best.

I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.
