Testing by the Almighty
We are all used to writing/giving tests for different purposes. Testing normally assesses our capacity for different things. We all like to know the purpose and results of the tests.
Allah swt has honored the children of Adam AHS and he has sent each one of us with a great mission
He SWT, states in Surah Al Momin, Ayah 115,
أَفَحَسِبْتُمْ أَنَّمَا خَلَقْنَـٰكُمْ عَبَثًۭا وَأَنَّكُمْ إِلَيْنَا لَا تُرْجَعُونَ ١١٥
Did you then think that We had created you without purpose? and that you would never be returned to Us?”
It is up to us to accomplish great things for ourselves, our families, our community, and other human beings. Of course, we must also obey His commandments as shown in the Quran and Hadiths of Prophet Muhammed PBUH.
During Ramadan, most of us have increased our spirituality, increased our knowledge of the Quran and are doing good things for the community and charities. Please let us plan to live with the spirit of Ramadan as the days and months come and go. Please forgive each other for any mistakes we made in our work for the community.
May Allah give us capacity to fulfil His desires and when we return, He is pleased with us, and we are pleased with Him.
With Salaam and Regards
