Ibn Taymiyyah said: "As for the people of Sunnah and hadith, then none of their scholars or righteous laypeople are known to have recanted from their positions of belief. In fact, they are the greatest of people in remaining firm upon that, even if they are tested with various trails and types of turmoil. This is the condition of the Prophet and their followers from the previous generations like the people of the ditch and other than them. Like the pious predecessors or this nation including the companions and their students from the Tabi'un and other than them from the Imams. To the extent that Imam Malik used to say, "Do not envy anyone who has been subjected to severe trails and affliction in this affair." He would say: "Indeed Allah must test the believer with trails and affliction. Then if he is patient, his level increases." As Allah, the Exalted said, "Alif, Lam, Mim. Do the people think that they will be left to say: 'We believe' and they will not be tested? Surely, We have tried those who came before them, and certainly Allah will clearly identify those who are truthful, and certainly He will clearly identify the liars." Majmu' al-Fatawa (4/50-51)
