Hold Fast to the Rope of God
Continued from page 1
To paraphrase the message of the Civil Defense people: “This is
a test. For the rest of your earthly life God is testing you in preparation
for the Hereafter. This is only a test. In case of emotional and physical
attack from the idol worshipers around you, resort immediately to prayer,
patience, and self-defense if physically attacked. This has been a message
from one of your brothers.”
We will certainly put you to the test, in order to distinguish
those among you who strive, and steadfastly persevere. We must expose
your true qualities. [47:31]
Did you think that you will be left alone without God distinguishing
those among you who strive, and never ally themselves with God’s
enemies, or the enemies of His messenger, or the enemies of the believers?
God is fully Cognizant of everything you do. [9:16]
May God continue to bless us all.

God willing, let’s get together
