“We are disheartened and suffer when we have expectations that are not met by the realities of the world and its people. But if we see this world as a place where God will test us with something of fear and hunger, a loss or diminution of wealth and life, and if we are patient with the painful predicaments and are grateful for the bounteous blessings, we will be happier for those choices.”

Shaykh Hamza Yusuf
