    "The world is bad is not because there alot of bad people but because so little of us trying to change the bad to good."

      “Mu'min” is more that just a title. It is to have Imaan established in the heart and testified to by the limbs.

          Abu Darda (Radi Allahu 'anhu) said: "I love three things that are hateful to people:
          'I love poverty, sickness, and death. I love them because:
          ✔-poverty is humility,
          ✔-sickness is expiation for sins &
          ✔-death results in a meeting with Allah.'

          ••►"But perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not." [2:216]

              It's true, as people we can become arrogant and live as though we are immortal and these first two things keep our frailty ever before us. That can only be a good thing as it forces us to confront our mortality and that, in turn, begs the question...what we do with the time we have alive, given that none of us know the duration. Atheists and humanists will more likely jump one way into hedonism and the 'god fearing' will search for safety in the shadow of the most high.

              Very powerful eesa.

                  “how can you disbelieve in Allaah? seeing that you were dead and He gave you life. then He will give you death, then again will bring you to life (on the day of resurrection) and then unto Him you will return.” ~ surah al-baqarah 2:28

                      ‘Divine help comes with patience, relief follows difficulty and ease follows hardship. Patience aids and supports a person more than an army of people and in the attainment of victory, it is like the head of the body.’

                          but rather give thanks that He doesn't punish us immediately for all our mistakes.'

                              The ibtilaa’ (testing) of the believer is like medicine for him. It cures him from illness. Had the illness remained it would destroy him or diminish his reward and level (in the hereafter). The tests and the trials extract these illnesses from him and prepare him for the perfect reward and the highest of degrees (in the life to come).”
                              -Ibnul Qayyim

                                Al Fudail Ibn 'Iyaad said;

                                Do not feel lonely on the paths of guidance just because few people travel them, and do not be deceived by the abundance of destroyed travelers [on the paths of misguidance].
