Allah جل جلاله Said:

وَعَدَ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مِنْكُمْ وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَيَسْتَخْلِفَنَّهُمْ فِي الْأَرْضِ كَمَا اسْتَخْلَفَ الَّذِينَ مِنْ قَبْلِهِمْ وَلَيُمَكِّنَنَّ لَهُمْ دِينَهُمُ الَّذِي ارْتَضَىٰ لَهُمْ وَلَيُبَدِّلَنَّهُمْ مِنْ بَعْدِ خَوْفِهِمْ أَمْنًا ۚ يَعْبُدُونَنِي لَا يُشْرِكُونَ بِي شَيْئًا ۚ وَمَنْ كَفَرَ بَعْدَ ذَٰلِكَ فَأُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْفَاسِقُونَ  

“Allah has promised those among you who believe, and do righteous good deeds, that He will certainly grant them succession in the earth, as He granted it to those before them, and that He will grant them the authority to practise their religion, that which He has chosen for them (i.e. Islam). And He will surely give them in exchange a safe security after their fear (provided) they (believers) worship Me and do not associate anything (in worship) with Me. But whoever disbelieved after this, they are the Fasiqoon.” [Al-Noor, 55]

Ibn Al-Qayyim said:  والعبد إن غير المعصية بالطاعة غير الله عليه العقوبة بالعافية والذل بالعز

“If the slave (of Allah) changes his sin (and disobedience) to obedience, Allah will change his punishment to safety, and change his humiliation to honour.”   [Al-Jawab al-Kafi, 93]

Shaykh Abdul Aziz bin Baz (rahimahullah) said:

فمتى تمسك المسلمون بدين الله والتزموا بما أوجب الله عليهم, وابتعدوا عما حرم عليهم, وحكموا شريعته, فإن الله سبحانه ينصرهم, ويؤيدهم على أعدائهم, ويكتب لهم النجاح والسعادة في الدنيا والآخرة, ويمنحهم الأمن في الدنيا وفي الآخرة, كما قال عز وجل: الذين آمنوا ولم يلبسوا إيمانهم بظلم أولئك لهم الأمن وهم مهتدون

“Whenever Muslims hold fast to the religion of Allah, and commit themselves to what Allah has enjoined upon them, and moved away from what is forbidden to them, and rule by His Law, then verily Allah Almighty will grant them victory and support them against their enemies. He will write for them success and happiness in this world and the Hereafter. As Allah ‘Azza wa Jal Said:

الذين آمنوا ولم يلبسوا إيمانهم بظلم أولئك لهم الأمن وهم مهتدون

“Those who believe and do not mix their belief with injustice – they will have security, and they are rightly guided.”  [Al-An’am, 82]

~ Majmu’ul Fatawa, 7/18
