In truth it was a hard (test) save for those whom Allah guided. And it is not Allah’s purpose that your faith should be in vain. For Allah is Full of Pity, Merciful towards mankind.
Wa ‘in- kaanat lakabiiratan ‘illaa ‘alal-laziina hadallaah. Wa maa kaanallaahu liyuzii-‘a ‘iimaanakum. ‘Innallaaha bin-naasi la-Ra-‘uu-fur-Rahiim.

Faith Will Not Be In Vain
LESSON # 146 FROM HOLY QUR’AN
BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow)
Faith Will Not Be In Vain
Verse –143c of 286, Section – 17 (Part 2)
BaytUl-laah (Khana Ka’-ba), the
most sacred place. It is the oldest and holy place of worship between the
Mosques and Temple of Makkah of the
world. Due to native reliability it was the most respectable place near to the
Arabians. But the prayers were offered facing towards the Temples (Bayt
ul Muqaddas) during the life of the Messenger of God Almighty (may glory, grace,
blessings and peace be upon Him) in Makkah. It was a big trial for the
patriot Arabs. It was much arduous and weighty for those people to make the
Qiblah to the Temple of Jerusalem . The
Arabians and the Quraish were Speakers of the religion of Prophet Abraham
(peace be upon Him). So they also used to respect the Ka’-ba, the Temple of Jerusalem , and dislike
to deem the Temple of Makkah (Bayt
ul Muqaddas) as Qiblah. Temple of Jerusalem
The God Almighty commanded that this test and trial was not heavy for those people who were shown Guideline by Allah Almighty and they were aware of its philosophy. They took it as that the Prophet of God Almighty Muhammad (may glory, grace, blessings and peace be upon Him) has been sent as Prophet for the entire world. To make Qiblah to Bayt ul Muqaddas did not astonish them. But they leaned in front of Allah Almighty without dispute and came out with great success in this trial.
When again the BaytUl-laah (Khana Ka’-ba), the Temple of Makkah was appointed as Qiblah then many people had doubt that the prayers offered turning towards Bayt ul Muqaddas have been wasted and particularly those Companions of the Holy Prophet (may glory, grace, blessings and peace be upon Him) who have died before the change of Qiblah, remained in the loss. The God Almighty cleared their doubt and commanded that the actual thing is obedience. Bayt ul Muqaddas was also appointed Qiblah with Our Orders. So the people who offered their prayers turning to words that Qiblah, will not be given loss for their any good act, future reward of their virtues is established. Allah Almighty is extremely Kind and Merciful over the human beings. He does not waste any virtue of any person.
