Allah says in the Hadith Qudsi:
I am to my slave as he thinks of Me, and I am with him if he mentions Me, if he mentions Me in himself I mention him within Myself, and if he mentions Me in a gathering, I mention him in a gathering better than they, and if he comes a span nearer to Me, I go a cubit nearer to him; and if he comes a cubit nearer to Me, I go a distance of two outstretched arms nearer to him; and if he comes to Me walking, I go to him running.
We have to think the best of Allah, we should know that His mercy comes before His anger and His forgiveness comes before His punishment, and with the constant remembrance and thikr of Allah, hardships are eased and pains of this world diminish; gradually being replaced with the sweetness of faith and closeness to Allah.
And in the end the world does not matter, and one can leave himself a prey to his desires and the desires of those around him only at their loss and waste of their life and shame on the day of judgment when standing before Allah, when all the signs have been made clear, and the truth
has been revealed and all of that which makes us closer to Allah has been said and all of that which makes us further away from Him and displeasing to Him has been said and Allah has warned over and over from the cursed shaytan, and that we should take him as our enemy;
O ye who believe! Enter into Islam whole-heartedly; and follow not the footsteps of the shytan for he is to you an avowed enemy.
This day have I perfected your religion for you, completed My favor upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion.
There is simply no excuse to stray;
This is the path of thy Lord, a straight path. We have detailed Our revelations for a people who take heed.
And in the end its all our choice, whether we remember, and strive to master our desires and not enslave ourselves to them, glad tidings with pleasure await us, and as for those who neglect Allah, then Allah will punish them for their arrogance and neglect.
Then, as for him who rebelled, And chose the life of the world, Lo! hell will be his home. But as for him who feared to stand before his Lord and restrained his soul from lust, Lo! the Garden will be his home.
Say: Lo! Allah’s Guidance is the (only) Guidance, and we are ordered to surrender to the Lord of the worlds.
