1. Query for Field Level Security

Use the WITH SECURITY_ENFORCED clause to enable checking for the field- and object-level security permissions on SOQL SELECT queries, including subqueries and cross-object relationships.

If fields or objects referenced in the SELECT clause using WITH SECURITY_ENFORCED are inaccessible to the user, an exception is thrown, and no data is returned.
SELECT Id, Name, StageName, ClosedDate FROM Opportunity WITH SECURITY_ENFORCED

If above Query throws an exception insufficient permissions. and no data return due to user not have permission to query this then use below type of query.

SELECT Id, (SELECT FirstName, LastName FROM Contacts), (SELECT Description, StageName, CloseDate FROM Opportunities)
