      This world (the dunyā) is [only taken as] a home by those who will have no real home [in Jannah], and it is the wealth of those who will have no real wealth, and it is gathered and collected for by those who have no real intelligence. (Ibn Mas'ud; reported by Ibn Abi Dunya in Dhamm al Dunya')
      It may not be easy, you may not understand it, but you need to have the Imaan to trust Allah when life doesn't make sense.

        It is reported that ‘Abdullh b. ‘Umar – Allh be pleased with him – was asked:

        Did the Companions of Allh’s Messenger – Allh’s peace and blessings be upon him – used to laugh? He replied, “Yes, and the mn (faith) in their hearts was greater than the mountains.”

            It is reported that when Al-Hasan Al-Basr was on his deathbed, some of his companions came to him and said:

            O Ab Sa’d, offer us some words you can benefit us with. He replied, “I will equip you with three words, then you must leave me to face what I am facing. Be the farthest of people from those things you have been forbidden, and be the most involved of people in the good you have been commanded to do; and know that the steps you take are two steps: a step in your favor and a step against you, so be careful where you come and where you go.”

            Ab Nu’yam, Hilyah Al-Awliy` 2:154

              Imam Al-Awzai’s Letter of Warning against Heresy and Heretics

              It is reported that Imm Al-Awz’ (d157H) wrote:

              O Muslims, fear Allh and obey Him, and accept the advice of the sincere advisers and the exhortation of the exhorters, and know that this knowledge is religion, so be careful about what you do [in it] and from whom you take [it] and who you follow and who you trust your religion to. For verily, the followers of Bid’ah are all falsifiers and liars, neither are they careful nor do they fear and protect [against wrongdoing], and nor are they to be trusted to not distort what you hear. They say what they know not when criticizing and decrying or when affirming their lies. But Allh encompasses what they do. So be on guard against them, suspect them, reject them and distance yourselves from them, for this was what your earlier scholars and the righteous latter ones did and instructed others to do.

              Beware of rising against Allh and becoming instruments in the destruction of His religion and undoing its handholds by respecting the innovators, for you know what has come down to us about respecting them. And what stronger respect and veneration can there be than taking your religion from them, following them, believing them, being close to them and helping them in alluring those they allure and attracting those they attract of the weak Muslims towards their ideas and the religion they practice? This is enough to be considered a partnership and contribution to what they do.

              Ibn ‘Askir, Trkh Dimishq 6:361, 362.
              It may not be easy, you may not understand it, but you need to have the Imaan to trust Allah when life doesn't make sense.

                It is reported that Al-Hasan Al-Basr – Allh have mercy on him – said when asked ‘what is mn (faith)?’:

                It is perseverance (al-sabr) from the things that are forbidden by Allh the Mighty and Majestic and acceptance. He was asked, “What is perseverance and acceptance?” He replied, “al-sabr is to persevere in holding back from what Allh has forbidden, and [acceptance is] acceptance of what Allh the Mighty and Majestic has commanded.”

                Ab Bakr Al-Daynr, Al-Mujlasah wa Jawhir Al-‘Ilm 3:535.

                  No poverty after Paradise and no wealth in the Fire

                  It is reported that Jundub b. ‘Abdillh Al-Bajal – Allah be pleased with him – was once asked for advice and instruction. He said:

                  I advise you to fear Allh and obey Him (taqw) and I advise you to adhere to the Quran, for it is a light in the dark night and a guidance during the day, so implement it no matter how much struggle and poverty you have to face. If a calamity befalls you, put your wealth forward to protect your religion, and if the calamity continues, put forward your wealth and your life to save your religion [but never risk your religion], for the ruined is he whose religion is ruined, and the looted is he whose religion is taken. And know that there is no poverty after Paradise, and no riches after the Fire.

                  Al-Dhahab, Siyar A’lm Al-Nubal` 3:174.

                    One of the Salaf said •► 'If this world does not cry for you (upon departing it), then the Hereafter will not smile for you.'

                    فَمَا بَكَتْ عَلَيْهِمُ السَّمَاءُ وَالْأَرْضُ وَمَا كَانُوا مُنظَرِينَ
                    "And the heaven and earth wept not for them, nor were they reprieved."
                    [Surah Ad Dukhan, 44:29]

                      It was said to ‘`ishah – Allh be pleased with her, “There are people who faint when they hear the Quran.” She said. “The Quran is nobler than to have people lose their minds from it. Rather, it [should be] as Allh the Mighty and Sublime said:

                      Those who fear their Lord tremble with fear by it, then their skins and hearts settle to the remembrance of Allah. (Srah Al-Zumar: 23)

                        It is reported that ‘Abd Al-Rahmān b. Mahdī – Allāh have mercy on him – said, “If it were not for the fact I hate that Allah is disobeyed, I would have wished that no one remain in this city except that he had spoken ill of me and backbitten me; for what is nicer than a good deed a man finds in his records on the Day of Resurrection without having done a thing or even having known?”

                        Abū Nu’aym, Hilyatu Al-Awliyā` 4:45.

                        Notes

                        This is a reference to a person who has been backbitten receiving good deeds on the Day of Judgment from the person who backbit him and didn’t repent and make amends, as mentioned in some narrations from the Prophet – Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him. The narration reminds us of the dire consequences of backbiting others: your good deeds may go to them if you don’t repent and make up for what you have done. It also provides assurance for those who have been backbitten: if left wronged in this life, they will be given good deeds in the hereafter as compensation and justice will be done.
                        It may not be easy, you may not understand it, but you need to have the Imaan to trust Allah when life doesn't make sense.

                          Al-Bukhr reports that ‘Umar – Allh be pleased with him – came to the Black Stone (performing tawf, circumambulation), kissed it, and said, “I know that you are a stone, you do not cause benefit or harm; and if it were not that I had seen Allh’s Messenger – peace and blessings of Allh be upon him – kiss you, I would never have kissed you.”

                          Al-Bukhr, Al-Sahh, Chapter on what has been said about the Black Stone.

                          Points to note

                          The illustrious Companion and Caliph ‘Umar reminded us in this narration of the pure belief that benefit and harm are not caused by created objects and thus should not be sought from them. Only Allh has control over these things.

                          We are reminded that acts of worship are taken from Allh’s Messenger, and a person is not supposed to make up his own way of worship, he must follow the manner of worship that the Prophet taught and practiced.

                          We also learn that once an action is confirmed in the Sunnah, the believer submits and complies and practices it because it is confirmed that Allh’s Messenger did it, even if we don’t know the wisdom behind it.

                          This narration is also an example of how a responsible person tries to clarify and do away with any misunderstandings that people may have about matters of faith. The people had recently left their unbelief and polytheism, so ‘Umar wanted to make it clear that kissing the Black Stone is by no means done as an act of devotion to it, as people used to do with their stone idols.

                          Adapted from Ibn Hajr, Fath Al-Br, and other hadth commentaries.
                          It may not be easy, you may not understand it, but you need to have the Imaan to trust Allah when life doesn't make sense.

                            It is reported that once, some good food was served to Anas [Ibn Mlik] – Allh be pleased with him, and [the person who served the food] was well off enough to afford good food. As he was eating, he kept a morsel of the food in his mouth for a while, then looked at the people and began to cry. Then he said, “By Allh, I have accompanied people who, if they could get hold of this kind of food, would have fasted even more often, and spent less time not fasting. One of them would find only milk mixed with water [as food], which he would drink and then fast on.”

And whoever comes to you with some truth – whether he is young or old, even if he is hated by you – then accept [that truth]. And whoever comes lying to you – even if he is beloved and close – then reject it from him.”
