With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Sura 47 (Muhammad)
Allah will test us to determine our commitment
“And We shall try you until We test those among you who strive their utmost and persevere in patience; and We shall try your reported (mettle).”
After Allah SWT exposes the hypocrites He informs us that life will bring us certain situations to prove whether we belong to the committed believers or those who merely pay lip service. Two important characteristics are mentioned, jihaad and Sabr. Jihaad means active exertion for the cause and Sabr means consistency. As such Allah SWT expects of believers to exert themselves for His cause and do so consistently. It is a combination of these two characteristics that lead to a successful society. May Allah swt imbue in us these two characteristics.
