The Believer

Dr. Bilal Philips:The believer remains free from the extremes of happiness that cause one to forget Allaah and the extremes of sadness that causes the ignorant to lose hope and blame Allaah. Consequently, both the trials of good and the tests of evil benefit the believer. Suhayb ibn Sinaan related that the Messenger of Allaah (صلى الله 
عليه و سلم) said: “The affair of the believer is amazing! The whole of his life is beneficial, and that is only in the case of the believer. When good times come to him, he is thankful and it is good for him, and when bad times befall him, he is patient and it is also good for him.” Sahih Muslim, vol.4, p.1541, no.7138.
