The trial of the pious servants leaving our midst is a difficult test for us. By virtue of their presence Allah Ta’ala protects us from many fitan (vices). Through the presence and Duas of the pious servants of Allah Ta’ala those disasters and calamities are averted and through their blessings Allah Ta’ala protects us.
We will recall that after the demise of Hadhrat Maseehul Ummat rahimahullah, the Babri Masjid in India was destroyed and many Muslims were killed as a result of this unfortunate event. Hence, the presence of the pious is a source of great mercy for us and by virtue of their presence among us and their Duas, we are saved from calamities.
In this time of test and tribulation we should turn our attention to Allah Ta’ala, seek sincere forgiveness, develop a serious concern for our reformation and remain firm and steadfast upon our faith.
