A Muslim would be devout even while in difficulties. Religion is for the good pleasure of Allah. That is because one might be a Muslim yet he might be put in jail, he might become disabled, he might be injured, anything could happen. The goal of a Muslim is solely attaining the good pleasure of Allah.
Purity and sincerity means doing something solely for the good pleasure of Allah. I mean if someone does things for the appreciation of other people, he would lose all he has done anyway. A Muslim should purely be after asking "What would Allah say to this?" "Would Allah like this?" "Would Allah be pleased by that?" This should never be forgotten. This is the main characteristic of purity and sincerity.
Worldly business can only have a meaning if they are done for the good pleasure of God. Muslims are disturbed by the unlawful acts, they make Muslims paralyzed and Muslims are unable to do such acts. But if a person is weak in mind and in faith, such a person does not mind if an act is religiously unlawful or not.
When we love a person we love him/her for the good pleasure of God. What does the good pleasure of God mean? It stems from the services rendered for Islam. Does he/she unite Muslims? Does he/she ensure unity? Does he/she work to quell dissension? Does he/she develop an attitude against division? If we see all these in a person, we should love that person for the good pleasure of God. We feel that love as a religious observation.
A Muslim lives for the good pleasure of God and he dies for the good pleasure of God. If one does not live for the good pleasure of God, life would turn into a living hell for him/her. Everything should be for the good pleasure of God; only then life would be beautiful. Heaven would be beautiful with the good pleasure of God as well.
There is no reliability and soundness in disbelief. You talk to a man and then you see him go and do something atrocious. They act in perversion and do something stupid. They want to approach you only insofar as they see you may serve their interest. When they have no personal gain in being with you, they refrain from coming near you. Actually in Islam, there is the concept of one being a servant of God without asking for any personal gain. Muslims live by that and thus attain constant reliability and decency.
What are the components of preaching religion? Pain, difficulties and threats… If these increase, the value of the preaching would increase as well, and you would attain the good pleasure of God even more. If your goal is to attain the good pleasure and the mercy of God, you would lovingly endure those. Living such a cowardly, timid life in this transient world is vey humiliating.
The birth of our Prophet (saas) is a feast for us, it is a celebration. He brought light to this world, he shone brightly in the world. May God be pleased with him. We are all very pleased with him; insha’Allah, may he be pleased with us in the Hereafter as well. Above all else is the approval of God of course, insha’Allah.
Man has a great power of resistance. He orders his brain and doesn't do what Satan orders. For instance, he would serve Islam. The lower-self says, "I am exhausted!" a Muslim responds to his lower-self saying, "You create that tiredness with prompting," and says, "What exhaustion are you talking about? You would be jumping up and down if you were told that you would be given five thousand liras. You are lying, it is not true." Even if the lower-self says, "I am spent, I am tired, I am about to drop down," a Muslim would say, "If there were something in it for you, you would go insane and all energetic."
The best form of resting is – of course we do not do this for God to let us rest, but for the good pleasure of God- is perfect connection with God. There is no rest other than that. I mean one should never weaken his connection with God under no conditions. Saying, "I will put things right later on," is wrong.
People do not devote themselves completely to God; I can see that there is a great mass of people who would abandon religion once it conflicts with their interests. The Mahdi (pbuh), on the other hand, is a person who would always ask for the good pleasure of God even if it conflicts with all his interests. As it is understood from the hadiths, he would withdraw himself from all aspects of social life.
Some people talk within the lines "But how are we to find the money?" about helping those who are in need. God would bring plenty in folds. The good deeds that will be attained is important, attaining the good pleasure of God is important. If you attain the good pleasure of God, He would give you riches. If you do not act in a way to attain His good pleasure and are stingy instead, God would take away everything you have and you would lose all your goods and possessions.
People will understand why God has created this world. They assume that it has been created simply for them to go skiing, to go swimming in the sea, or to go have fun. That is not why the world has been created. God created this world only to select those who He loves, for them to look for ways to attain His approval. They imagine that the world is a place of fun. They don't understand it correctly.
Looking for the most of God's approval is something the hypocrites like the least. Hypocrites would only go for the things they like, for the things that serve their interests and leave those that do not serve their purposes aside. In their twisted minds, only the parts of the Qur'an that are in their favor are valid, only those parts that comply with their lower-selves are valid. They do not accept those parts that go against their lower-selves.
It would not be acceptable if love is contaminated with idolatry. For instance, one might say, "I do love my friend a lot, I do love my spouse a lot." And when then asked, "Do you love God?" he says, "I love God as well." That is not acceptable. He should say, "I love my spouse for the good pleasure of God, I love my friend for the good pleasure of God. I love them as the manifestations of God."
Hypocrites- in their own minds- try to deceive the Prophet (saas) with the Qur'an. They say, "Doesn't God tell us to protect our families? And God shows us trade as a lawful path and that is what I am doing." Alright, but you need to look for the act that would please God the most, you need to be honest and sincere. There are Muslim women, inoffensive Muslims, being martyred and here you are talking about your trade. Do not act in infamy, come to your senses and stop acting foolishly. People are being killed there, Muslims are being martyred; is your trade more important than that? Are you that foolish?
If you tell those who are weak in faith to remain sleepless for the good pleasure of God, for serving Islam, they would fall down and faint; but if you tell them that you will give them a car they would remain standing for days without sleep. That is where we see the indignity, vulgarity and animalistic characteristics of the lower-self.
