Hardships & Calamities are a Warning

It is necessary for every heedful eye to learn a lesson from the calamities and disasters occurring in the lives of individuals and nations. To call them a turn of events, natural calamities or merely an accident and to move on can prove harmful.

Allah Ta'ala says:

"And verily we will make them taste of the near torment (in this world) prior to the supreme torment (in the Hereafter) in order that they may return (repent).”
(As-Sajdah: 21)


"Was there any town that believed and its faith saved it (from the punishment) except the people of Yunus; when they believed we removed from them the torment of disgrace in the life of the world and permitted them to enjoy for a while (more). "

Consequently, faith in and obedience to Allah Ta'ala is the only way to salvation.
