أَحَسِبَ النَّاسُ أَن يُتْرَكُوا أَن يَقُولُوا آمَنَّا وَهُمْ لَا يُفْتَنُونَ {Does mankind think that they will be left to say, “We believe”, and that they will not be tested?}

أَحَسِبَ النَّاسُ أَن يُتْرَكُوا أَن يَقُولُوا آمَنَّا وَهُمْ لَا يُفْتَنُونَ {Does mankind think that they will be left to say, “We believe”, and that they will not be tested?}.

Believe
But I’m terrified to be tested;
convinced hitherto i will fail Thee.
Bereft of being close to You.
Those patient souls who
persevere every affliction with blooming devotion,
sans giving up on God;
I marvel with envy, if their strength
comes from somewhere within their hearts
which might have encountered You in every second of their enduring;
Alas, my heart is afraid that it will have to suffer,
And my mind knows You will never burden a soul beyond what it can bear
But that is the flaw of my heart-
it doesn’t have a mind.
In truth, this creation is not heroic enough
to pursue You at the price of adversity;
Forgive me ya Ghaffar, I was,
verily, created weak.
I will find my way out of this labyrinth, this dead spirituality,
And enlighten what is dark in me.
My purpose lies in passing
this test 
of being untested;
ergo                                                                                                                                                        
winning Thee in the quest for myself.
