In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
[51:20] The earth is full of signs for those who are certain.
[51:21] And within yourselves; can you see?
[7:168] We scattered them among many communities throughout the land. Some of them were righteous, and some were less than righteous. We tested them with prosperity and hardship, that they may return.
As you may have noticed in the above verse tests are not limited to bad things, do not be like the people who implore God for help when they face hardship, and as soon as He relieves it, they go back transgressing again!
[10:22] He is the One who moves you across the land and sea. You get onto the ships, and they sail smoothly in a nice breeze. Then, while rejoicing therein, violent wind blows, and the waves surround them from every side. This is when they implore GOD, sincerely devoting their prayers to Him alone: "If You only save us this time, we will be eternally appreciative."
[10:23] But as soon as He saves them, they transgress on earth, and oppose the truth. O people, your transgression is only to the detriment of your own souls. You remain preoccupied with this worldly life, then to us is your ultimate return, then we inform you of everything you had done.
Know that God is Merciful, He forgives alot of minor transgressions, BUT if you persist knowingly, He punishes, and when He punishes, His punishment is severe, you may have tasted some of it already as a result of a transgression or center-shift (to money, lust..etc):
[42:30] Anything bad that happens to you is a consequence of your own deeds, and He overlooks many (of your sins).
[3:3] He sent down to you this scripture, truthfully, confirming all previous scriptures, and He sent down the Torah and the Gospel.
[3:4] before that, to guide the people, and He sent down the statute book. Those who disbelieve in GOD's revelations incur severe retribution. GOD is Almighty, Avenger.
And before all that, do you believe in God's message in Quran ? If not then don't blame except yourself for the retribution that is awaiting you, you have been just warned.
You can redeem yourself now, there is a chance every passing minute to denounce the devil, refrain from transgressions (motivated by obsessions, addictions and unjustifiable fear and hate), and practically proclaiming that there is no god except God, and that He alone can harm or benefit you. Thus when you turn appreciative and thank God for His blessings, and in times of adversity seek help from Him alone, everything will start working for you again, you will be readmitted into God's mercy and the adversity will be alleviated by God's inspiring you of a way out like He inspired Job and moreover you will be showered with perfect happiness now and forever. All of this because you took heed, read the messages of your Creator (imbeded in daily events), cleaned up your act, and turned completely to God after severing all ties and dependence on the illusion of the visible life elements (things and people).
[8:53] GOD does not change a blessing He has bestowed upon any people unless they themselves decide to change. GOD is Hearer, Omniscient.
[22:15] If anyone thinks that GOD cannot support him in this life and in the Hereafter, let him turn completely to (his Creator in) heaven, and sever (his dependence on anyone/anything else).
He will then see that this plan eliminates anything that bothers him.
[39:10] Say, "O My servants who believed, you shall reverence your Lord." For those who worked righteousness in this world, a good reward. GOD's earth is spacious, and those who steadfastly persevere will receive their recompense generously, without limits.
