  وَلَنَبْلُوَنَّكُم بِشَىْءٍ مِّنَ ٱلْخَوْفِ وَٱلْجُوعِ وَنَقْصٍ مِّنَ ٱلْأَمْوَٰلِ وَٱلْأَنفُسِ وَٱلثَّمَرَٰتِ وَبَشِّرِ ٱلصَّٰبِرِينَ (155

It was stated in the previous verse about the people, who acquired higher post of steadfastness, that is to say; they fought in the way of God Almighty and were put to death as martyrs in the path of Truth. Now in this verse, it has been described that the Muslims will suffer these types of trials and tests during their lives which will be more troublesome than the death to maintain its stability. Any individual should never show weakness and cowardice during these kinds of situations. Moreover, they should take strength from the steadfastness and continue to obey the commands of God Almighty happily with His assent.

These tests will appear in the different forms, for example; fear of the enemy, danger of banishment, confinement and imprisonment on speaking the truth, season of dearth or famine, shortage of the basic necessities of life, wealth and property, deficiency in livelihood and employment, killing of nearest relatives, friends and supporters in the path of God Almighty, looking mortality, ruin and expiration of own relatives during the war against enemies of Allah Almighty and His Messenger (glory, grace, blessings and peace be upon Him), shortage of fruits, other eatable and drinkable things etc.

The people will be tested through all these difficulties, calamities, and troubles from time to time, their perseverance, steadiness and steadfastness will be observed. It is not so much easy to include one between the steadfast. So it is warned here that a lot of troubles like these may be faced during try for doing supplication and prestige of God Almighty, but it is the demand of steadfastness that instead of being afflicted and broken-hearted, we should remain zealous and earnest in inclination of our cause. Conception to achieve it; we should remain firm with full strength and keep it up with the tireless hardworking.
