The danger of trials and strife lies in the fact that when they approach, people do not recognize certain realities. They become confused about the distinction between truth on the one hand and falsehood on the other; as well as advocates of evils and misguidance on the one hand, and advocates of guidance and virtue on the other. Consequently, people fall into the snares of those trials, become adversely affected by them, deviate from the teachings of their religion, fall short in various ways, and commit various mistakes. They become easy -to manipulate tools in the hands of those who are open and hidden enemies of Islaam, and wood for the fires they ignite. Then, when the trials and strife eventually depart, that is when all people – even the ignorant– recognize what really happened. However, it is too late to benefit from the knowledge and recognition which come at that time.
