Imagine the condition of the one who is holding on to a hot coal. The heat is scorching, his skin is roasting, the smell of burning fat becomes apparent and every second that goes by feels like a lifetime. Yet, the one who is in this position knows that he cannot let go. Why? Because he knows that it is temporary, he knows that the promise of Allah is true, he knows that eternity in Jannah is better than any pain suffered in this lowly dunya, he knows that this pain is nothing compared to the pain of the inhabitants of the Hellfire.Reply
The righteous slave of Allah will not sell his seat in Paradise for an hour in this lowly, transient, dunya. He will be patient and strive to please Allah in spite of the persecution of the ignorant. He will find comfort in the words of Ar-Rahmaan, when He says:
“And don’t be weak in the pursuit of the enemy; if you are suffering (hardships) then surely, they (too) are suffering as you are suffering, but you have a hope from Allah (for the reward i.e. Paradise) that for which they hope not, and Allah is Ever All-Knowing, All-Wise.” [Surah An-Nisaa’: 104]
