Persecution is a dreadful chapter of human history
And certainly were messengers denied before you, but they were patient over [the effects of] denial, and they were harmed until Our victory came to them. And none can alter the words [i.e. decrees] of Allah. And there has certainly come to you some information about the [previous] messengers.
(Surah no. 06, verse no.: 34)
Keep peaceful don’t grieve:
Dear brothers and sisters, the above verse stating that when our dearest Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was extremely grieved for constant rejection, denial and heretic words of the unbelievers and polytheists. At that time the Prophet (pbuh) was advised to keep peaceful and not to grieve so much at their rejecting and denying because the past Messengers of Allah also received similar pains from their nations. But they endure with patience all their peoples. Their determination and courage did not draw back against the wicked opposition of the infidels and unbelievers.
Faith in Allah must be tested:
The evil forces have always been at daggers drawn against the good forces. The history of persecution has been a dreadful chapter of human history. The point emphasized here is that no one has the power to change Allah’s Law regarding the conflict between truth and falsehood. Lovers of truth have to pass through trials and persecutions. Their endurance, their honesty of conviction, their readiness to sacrifice and to undertake all risks for their cause, the strength of their faith and extent of their trust in Allah must be tested. All the Prophets tried hard to establish religion and were tested on earth.
When Allah’s help arrive?
They must pass through this phase of persecution to develop in themselves those qualities which can be developed nowhere else but on earth. They are also required to defeat the forces of Ignorance by virtue of their moral excellence and the nobility of their character. Only after they have established their moral superiority over their adversaries will Allah’s help arrive. No one can secure that help beforehand.
