Allaah’s Messenger (may Allaah make mention of him in the highest of gatherings and the peace of Allaah be upon him) said:

“Worship Allaah and be obedient  in times of ease and Allaah will know you (by way of His support and aid) in times of difficulty”

Shaykh Uthaymeen (Allaah have mercy upon him) said:

And the statement of his صلى الله عليه وسلم:
“In times of ease and prosperity”,

meaning: ease and prosperity in your life, such as when you are in a good state of health, and in wealth, and in a state of safety & security and whatever is similar to that.

“Allaah will know you”

meaning a specific and special acquaintance (that Allaah will support and aid you)

“In times of difficulty”,

meaning:
when you are in a state of difficulty, (Allaah) will be with you (supporting and aiding) you when you are ill, in your times of poverty, when you are in a state of fear, and most importantly He will (support and aid) you at the time of death, for He will keep you firm and guide you to that which is right, because the most difficult time a person will be in is at the time of death. So worship and be obedient to Allaah in times of ease and prosperity, He will support and aid you in times of difficulty.”
