Expect the best and Allah will deliver
“Be aware that there is no room for desperation and hopelessness in your life,” the sermon will preach.
“If troubles surround you, all you have to do is to look forward to what Allah has in store for you, and to think good of Him.”
In a divine hadith inspired to the Prophet Mohammed, Allah said: “I am as my servant expects me to be. If he expects good then he will get it, and if he expects bad then he will get it.”
Therefore, whoever works for his or her goals with a positive approach will indeed succeed in accomplishing them.
Prophet Mohammed ordered people to avoid being pessimistic in all matters, such as when visiting an ill person.
One should express positive messages and give them hope, as that will give the patient reassurance and emotional peace.
Another example of the Prophet Mohammed’s teachings is that one should choose names for one’s children that have positive, optimistic meanings.
This will be reflected later on in the person’s life.
“A pleasant life is one where a person lives optimistically, which makes him ambitious in his thought, loving to his family and homeland, compassionate with others ... confident that Allah will not waste his good work,” adds the sermon.
As a verse in the Quran says: “Allah loseth not the wages of the good.”
