Does Allah test us?

In this life we face many ups and downs/ difficulties and these difficulties are from Allah Almighty. These ups and downs are from Allah Almighty. Allah Almighty tests his believers with many disasters and crises.
There are many reasons behind these tests which are taken from Allah Almighty. Few reasons are being described here.
*1. For removing our sins and giving reward*
In Quran E Hakeem it is said that:-

And, when he was old enough to walk with him, he said: “O my son! I have seen in a dream that I am slaughtering you, so what do you think?” He said: “O my father! Do that which you are commanded, if Allah Wills, you will find me to be of the patient.” Then, when they had both submitted, and he had laid him prostrate on his forehead, and we called out to him: “O Ibrahim! You have fulfilled the dream!” Verily! Such do we reward the good-doers.”

It is narrated by Sa’ad bin Abi Waqqas that it is said by the Prophet of Allah that:-

“Which of the people are tested most severely?” Rasulullah (SAW) replied: “The Prophets, then the righteous, then those who are most like them, then those who are most like them from the people. A man is tested according to his religious commitment. So, if his religious practice is sound, then his testing is increased, and if his religious practice is weak, then his testing is reduced. A servant continues to be tested until he walks the Earth without a single sin on him.”

 *2. For purifying the ranks*

In Quran E Hakeem it is said that:-

Allah was not such as to let the believers remain in the state in which you are, until He distinguished the corrupt from the good. And Allah was not such as to let you have knowledge of the Unseen, rather Allah chooses whom He will of His Messengers. Therefore, believe in Allah and His Messengers; and if you believe and are God fearing, then, for you is a great reward.
*3. For exposing the reality of human being in this world*
In Surah E Nisa it is said that:-

“Verily, we have created man from a mingled sperm-drop that We might try him, so We made him hearing, seeing. Indeed, we have guided him to the way, to be grateful or ungrateful.”
 *4. For revealing the patience*

In Quran E Hakeem it is said that:-

“And surely We shall try you with something of fear, hunger and depletion in goods, lives and crops. Give glad tidings then (O Prophet) to those who endure in fortitude. Such as those who, when visited by an affliction say, ‘To Allah we belong and to Him we will return.”
These are some good reasons which become the biases of the test which are taken from Allah Almighty. May Allah give us success in every test which He takes from us! Aameen….
