Whoever is mindful of Allah when he is young and strong

Ibn Rajab al Hambali (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

“Whoever is mindful of Allah when he is young and strong, Allah will take care of him when he is old and has become weak, and will bless him with good hearing, eyesight, strength and intellect. One of the scholars who lived beyond the age of one hundred years and enjoyed good strength and reasoning jumped up in a lively manner one day, and was asked about that. He said: ‘I kept these physical faculties from sin when i was young, and Allah has preserved them for me now that I am old.’ The opposite also applies. One of the Salaf saw an old man begging from people and said: ‘ This is a weak man who ignored Allah when he was young. So, Allah is ignoring him now that he has grown old.'” 
(Jami’ al-ulum wal Hikam)

No fear and no grief

Allah the Most high, says,

“Those who believe, and do deeds of righteousness, and establish regular prayers and regular charity, will have their reward with their Lord. On them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.”

[Al Qur’an 2:277]

Abdus Salaam (a scholar of the past) (May Allah have mercy upon him) once went to visit a tyrant, with his students. So at first he started to speak softly, but then his voice started becoming louder and louder and his voice was becoming harsher and harsher, and he started pointing towards this tyrant. So his students started wrapping up their cloaks, because they were expecting that at anytime a sword will cut off his head, because of the way he was speaking to this tyrant. When he came out, his students went to him and said, what have you done, how could you speak to him like that. He said that when I imagined the greatness of Allah, then this tyrant became in front of me smaller than a cat.

This happened when he put things into perspective

As a believer you could go through situations where you have fear, because fear is a natural human instinct, however when iman sinks into the heart it eliminates fear. So you might go through that natural feeling of fear, but you will overcome it thorough your iman.

Allah will be with you

Allah, the Most High, says

“…for verily Allah is with those who believe.”

[Al Qur’an 8:19]

When Allah says that “Allah is with the believers”, it means that the believers don’t need anyone else.

Rasullulah(saw) has said Be mindful of Allah, and Allah will protect you. Be mindful of Allah, and you will find Him before you.”

Allah will be with us and will give us according to what we are doing, i.e. our actions and our deeds.

Whosoever believes in Allah and in the last day

Whosoever believes in Allah and in the last day

On the authority of Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) it is reported that the Prophet (Peace be upon him) said,

“Let whosoever believes in Allah and in the Last Day either speak good or remain silent. Let whosoever believes in Allah and in the Last Day honour his neighbour. Let whosoever believes in Allah and in the Last Day honour his guest.”

[Bukhari and Muslim]
