How fantastic is the case of a believer : He is the winner in any circumstances. If he suffers from any ailment, agony or poverty and withstands them, he is rewarded for his patience. And when he is blessed With weal and prosperity, and he expresses his gratitude for this, they pave way for him to a better future.
Indeed, the baffling situations and tough travails sharpen the man's mind and makes him the philosopher's stone.
The stand of a believer toward any accident is to surrender to the will and volition of Allah. When Ibrahim, the son of our Prophet (P.B.U.H) was in the agonies of death, he kept him close in his lap. Naturally his eyes brimmed with tears and he told : O Ibrahim ! we are sad for your departure, but we shall utter only what may please Allah.
In the life of a believer, what a vital role plays the quest of Divine pleasure, it may be appreciated by the following prayer of the Prophet (P.B.U.H):
"O Allah keep me alive as long as the life is better for me and send me death when the death becomes better for me ".
The prophet (P.B.U.H) said :
The prayer, which Younus (A.S.) Chanted in the belly of the fish was :
"There is no God save you : glorified be you : I was the wrong-doer". So when a Muslim recites this prayer in any hardship, his prayer is accepted by Allah.
The line of Demarcation between a Muslim and Disbeliever is that the latter is demoralized when he falls in a crucial situation. Sometimes he commits suicide surrendering to his travails. The Believer, on the contrary, rises to all the occasions and withstands any calamity with restraint and prowess like an invincible rock. He takes the better of any situation, returning it to the will of Allah.
