Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm:

قَدْ نَعْلَمُ إِنَّهُ لَيَحْزُنُكَ الَّذِي يَقُولُونَ ۖ فَإِنَّهُمْ لَا يُكَذِّبُونَكَ وَلَٰكِنَّ الظَّالِمِينَ بِآيَاتِ اللَّهِ يَجْحَدُونَ

(Qur’ān 06:33). ‘Qad Na`lamu ‘Innahu Layaĥzunuka Al-Ladhī Yaqūlūna ۖ Fa’innahum Lā Yukadhdhibūnaka Wa Lakinna Až-Žālimīna Bi’āyāti Allāhi Yajĥadūn’, ‘We know that you, [O Muhammad], are saddened by what they say. And indeed, they do not call you untruthful, but it is the verses of Allah that the wrongdoers reject.’

The nations who had never accepted our Holy Prophet ﷺ used to say things to him ﷺ but meaning Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. Therefore, Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla says “Do not be sad.” Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla knows their intentions. Their intentions are not good. Their intentions are always to go against Allah ﷻ. Their intention is to oppose Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. And whoever goes against Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla can never be victorious. “لاَ غَالِبَ إِلاَّ اللَّه” – There is no Victor but Allah ﷻ.

They are attacking Mu’mins, Muslims and Awliya’, thinking they are clever. Those who attack will find Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla in front of them. Their shield, their protector is Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla is the one who protects Islam. Even if the whole world of Kufr unites, they cannot do anything against the religion of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla.

Kufr and Iman could never come together since the beginning. They are always apart from each other. There is no chance that Iman and Kufr can be together. That is impossible. Therefore, this state will go on. It is a test for humanity. Some people pass the test and some people fail the test. It is a test, but it is not like the tests of this world. Those who fail this test will stay forever in hell. And those who pass the test will go to paradise with the permission of Allah ﷻ.

Therefore, don’t be sad. Our Holy Prophet ﷺ tells not to be sad. Mu’mins should not be sad too. This state is something appointed by Allah ﷻ and given to people as a test. The ranks of all Mu’mins will be raised with that test. Their stations will be raised. It is for those who are patient and stand by the way of Allah ﷻ.

May Allah ﷻ make us steadfast. We ask that Allah ﷻ gives guidance to others. We don’t say anything else. Guidance is from Allah ﷻ. And if they have their share of it, they will be saved insha’Allah.

Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
