The man in this world has to rise to the vicissitudes of the time, occasionally he is beaten by agony, grief and distress, and than he is greeted by gaiety and success. Some times he concedes heavy losses of life and property and some times gets enormous profits. These ebbs and tides of the life introduce frequently certain radical changes in the emotions and thoughts of the man. When he is hit by the strives, he is found moribund due to quick succession of agony, grief and preoccupation, and remains overpowered by the pessimism and inferiority complex. Lured by his emotional upheavals, he passes hectic remarks on the natural laws while he is starkly inconversant with these laws.
On the contrary, when Allah opens on him the broad vistas of weal and prosperity and he gets his full share of the pleasure, he gives full marks to his muscle power and crushes all the barriers, ebrued of the wealth, he was destined to.
As far as the view point of Believer is concerned, it remains unchanged both in weal and woe. He has the guts to rise to the occasion so he is not demoralized, but remains thankful to Allah because he is well-acquainted with the fact that the time of joy is naturally, replaced by the counter time. So he, during that acid test, does not swerve from the path of strenuous work and fighting spirit, but his life turns a symbol of incessant diligence and drudgery and augmented enthusiasm and zeal.
The same mentality was adopted by the Messengers of Allah (A.S) that they reposed their confidence into Allah and stood firm and adamant in all the trial hours with a deep sense of gratitude. Never a single word of complaint crossed their lips. The Holy Quran has presented Ayub (A.S) as an excellent symbol of total attachment to Allah and abiding belief in Him and invincibility to the vicissitudes, and in contrast to him, Suleman (A.S) was presented as the facet of exorbitant wealth, gratitude for the prosperity and attachment to the humility, simplicity and Generosity.
These are the Holy Bondsmen of Allah who are being hailed by the Quran in the following glib method:
"We shall put you in the slight trial of fear, hunger and loss of wealth, lives, and fruits. And greet the stead fast who say when they are stricken with some misery: verily we are for Allah and verily we are to return to him alone. Those have blessing form their Lord and mercy and those are rightly guided".
"Whatever misfortune befalls in the earth or in yourselves is contained in the Book before we bring it forth. Verily it is easy for Allah lest you grieve for the chance, eluded you".
