Whenever something is wrong in a person, everything around him appears wrong to him. When he is all right within himself, the world appears all right to him. The world is created perfectly by our Creator. If something appears wrong to you, you must ask yourself: “What is wrong in me that I see this as wrong? Oh my nafs, you are wrong!”

This is the highest degree of faith, and the highest degree of belief in the goodness of the Creator. Allah is not creating anything wrong or imperfect. At the essence of everything, if we could but see it, there is perfection. Until we behave correctly with our Lord, it is impossible for our actions, our family, our neighbours to behave correctly with us. It is impossible to find a better situation than that which exists today, for those who are ready. You cannot wish for things to be as they used to be, nor for the way that they might be. The conditions that we are in now are perfect, most suitable for us. Allah Almighty is giving as much of His mercy as we need; as much as we are able to carry.

Real faith is like that: to believe that all actions, whether from goodness, or from badness, are from Allah Almighty. If we believe this, we must be patient with each other’s actions. Allah is trying our faith, each of us with others.

The Prophet sws said: “People will deal with you according to your actions.” If you are good and someone intends you harm, Allah will defend you. You must be honourable to all, good, respectful, merciful, generous and think well of all. We must be patient with all people because we believe that no one comes to us without our Lord’s Will. Therefore, there is no enmity in Islam. We have been ordered to do goodness. Anyone can return goodness for goodness; but only a few people can return goodness for badness.
