:bismillah:

He is the One Who Revealed the Book unto you; from it are Decisive Verses - these are the Mother of the Book; and others are Allegorical. Then as for those in whose hearts there is perversity, so they are following what is allegorical from it, seeking the Fitna and seeking its (personal) interpretation. And none knows its interpretation except Allah, and those who are firmly rooted in the Knowledge. They are saying, ‘We believe in it. It is all from the Presence of our Lord’. And none (would) mention except those with the understanding [3:7]

 

Let's see how "those who are firmly rooted in the knowledge" i.e the Holy Ahlulbayt (a) interpret this verse,

 

And We will be Testing you with something from the fear and the hunger and scarcity of the wealth and the lives and the fruits; and give glad tidings to the patient ones [2:155]

 

Al Ayyashi, from Al Sumaly who said, 

‘I asked Abu Ja’far Imam Muhammad Al Baaqir (asws) about the Words of Allah (عزّ وجلّ): And We will be Testing you with something from the fear and the hunger [2:155].

He (Imam) said: ‘That is a particular hunger, and a general hunger. So as for at Syria, it would be general (widespread), and as for the particular (hunger) is would be at Al-Kufa, in a particular (area) and not be general but it would be in particular at Al-Kufa for the enemies of the Progeny (asws) of Muhammad (saws), so Allah (عزّ وجلّ) would Destroy them by the hunger.

 

And as for the fear, so it would be general (widespread) at Syria, and that is the fear when Al-Qaim (Imam Mahdi) rises; and as for the hunger, it would be before the rising of Al-Qaim (Imam Mahdi (a)), and these are Allah's Words: And We will be Testing you with something from the fear and the hunger [2:155]’.

 

Tafseer Al Ayyaashi 1: 68/125

 

Let's see another interpretation,

Muhammad Bin Ibrahim Al No’mani – well known as Ibn Zaynab, from Muhammad Bin Hamaam, from Abdullah Bin Ja’far Al Humeyri, from Ahmad Bin Hilal, from Al Hassan Bin Mahboub, from Ali Bin Ra’ib, from Muhammad Bin Muslim,

 

(It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah Ja’far (a) Bin Muhammad (a) having said: ‘Surely before the rising of Al-Qaim (a) there are signs, a Trial from Allah (عزّ وجلّ) the Exalted to His servants, the Momineen’.

I said, ‘And what are these?’ 

He (a) said: ‘So that is the Speech of Allah (عزّ وجلّ) Mighty and Majestic: And We will be Testing you with something from the fear and the hunger and scarcity of the wealth and the lives and the fruits; and give glad tidings to the patient ones [2:155]

He (a) said: ‘And We will be Testing you – meaning the Momineen, with something from the fear – from the kings of the Clan of so and so at the end of their rule, and the hunger – with expensive prices (inflation), and scarcity of the wealth – spoiling of the businesses and the scarcity of the grace therein, and the lives – catastrophic deaths, and the fruits – scarcity of yield from what is cultivated and scarcity of the Blessings of the fruits, and give glad tidings to the patient ones [2:155] – during that, with the rising of Al-Qaim (a)’’.

 

Then he (a) said: ‘O Muhammad! This is its interpretation that Allah (عزّ وجلّ) Mighty and Majestic is Speaking of but none know its interpretation except Allah, and those who are firmly rooted in the Knowledge’ [3:7]’’.
