A Warning to the Son of Adam about the Origins of Evil
Subject - Allah tests His Creation with Good and Evil pg. 28
Allah ta`ala says "We shall make a trial of you with evil and with good. Al-Anbiyah (21): 35
Also: "And we have made some of you as a trial for others: will you have patience? Al-Furqan (25): 20
And also: "As for man, when his Lord tries him by giving him honor and gifts, then he says, "My Lord has honored me." But when He tries him, by straitening his means of life, he says: "My Lord has humiliated me!" Nay! Al-Fajr (89): 15-16
Whenever the rich believe that they are honored by Allah and that the poor are humiliated by Allah, The Most High responds, "Nay!" The wealth of the rich and the poverty of the poor is a matter of test and trial. Only the pious are honored by Allah. And, Allah knows best who is pious.
