Sincere believers have been consistently assailed by those who
deny the true religion, merely for seeking to live by the morality
of the Qur'an, and striving to teach others to do the same. Throughout
history, among the methods applied to weaken the believers has been
slander, according to fabricated evidence, and false witnesses,
in order to make them appear guilty in the eyes of the people and
the law, and thus to have them imprisoned. Believers, who are punished
with imprisonment, as a result of such actions, are considered by
others, who are deficient in their understanding, to be confined.
In reality, however, they have an opportunity to concentrate on
their spiritual development, to deepen their insight. Ultimately,
it is a chance to come closer to Allah. They can also gain strengths
in many further aspects, as one spending time to meditate at a retreat,
as did the Companions of the Cave, over the passage of so many years.
Therefore, those who seek to harm Muslims, and to inhibit their
efforts in the service of the faith, in reality, only end up helping
the Muslims in the earning of a great reward.
