“For those who practice patience, musībah (adversity) is a gift from Allāh ta‘ālā and not a punishment. This is because patience in the face of adversity brings the proximity of Allāh ta‘ālā very rapidly.

If this is our attitude in regards to worldly harms, should we not, when we are in doubt as to whether something is halāl or harām, take the precautious measure too, until we are 100% satisfied?”
The sign of success in any Dīnī program is not the number of people who attend, but the number of people whose hearts are affected.
