At a time in which the Muslims are beset with trials from every periphery, it is a time when Muslims should continue being Muslims, only better Muslims. I would say to my dear brothers and sisters in Islam “don’t be Sad”; if you are on the true religion – believing in One God and all the Messengers sent to mankind, then don’t be sad.
“…Bear with patience whatever befalls you….” (Qur’an 31:17)
and “Be not sad, surely Allah is with us.” (Qur’an 9:40)
Our Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) said: “Verily, if Allah loves a people, He makes them go through trials. Whoever is satisfied, for him is contentment, and whoever is angry upon him is wrath.” (Tirmidhi)
