Light Up Your Life With Islam

Bismillah.

To establish further the difference of attitude between the true believer and the other person on receiving good and bad, here is an example:

When the true believer is afflicted with a disease or poverty or any kind of problems that every person is plagued by, he – due to his faith and his contentment (on however much he has) and his acceptance of the distribution by Allah – finds in that problem coolness of his eye. It means he doesn’t get perturbed like other people. His heart does not wish for the thing that is not destined for him. He looks at those who are below him. He sees their problems and knows that he is in a better position or that others are suffering too, he is not the only one. He does not look at those above him; those who are in a better situation than him because then he will only feel deprived.

The result of his attitude is that sometimes his pleasure, happiness and comfort supersedes the one’s who has his world’s desires with him. Because the one who already does have what he wants, does not have contentment on what he has and wants more. Whereas this true believer is content on whatever he has. When his problem ends, because problems do not remain forever and they do expire after a time, his happiness is coupled with contentment and he accepts his favours with pleasure.

But the other person, who does not do deeds as required by his faith, when he is afflicted with poverty or loses something from his worldly wants, you will find him in the depths of wretchedness and misery. He has no good hopes from Allah and does not expect anything positive, in fact, he goes even farther away from his deen.

Wassalam,
Hajrah. :)
