The people of kuffār have no Lord, we have Allah, and as long as you have Allah, they can’t take anything away from you. — Shaykh Hamza Yusuf
Trials and tribulations are a means of purification & the punishment of Allāh is cleansing your sins. They are purifying you so that you can go to the purest of places.
In times of trials and tribulations, you need to seek out the believers. You need to seek out the righteous & let them be your guide & help to Allāh ﷻ.
— Shaykh Navaid Aziz
What motivates you? What makes you tick? This is what our Prophet sallaAllahu ‘alayhi wasalam called Niyah (Intention). What is your intention? What is your niyah? What do you want when your doing something? Whats your intention for fasting? What is your intention for giving money? Once you begin to address the essence of your own being you can begin to understand who you are, and that’s why self-knowledge is foundational in our religion. If you don’t know who you are, your’re certainly not going to know whose you are.
Sometimes you’ll come across someone who isn’t the smartest, wealthiest, or most popular but they have the best Akhlaq (manners). Keep their company.
Shaikh Ibn Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, said:
“If you see that you have turned away from something from Allaah’s Religion or you see that you have turned away from the Book of Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic, either from reciting its [actual] words, or reciting it [by pondering over] its meaning, or reciting it by acting on it, then it is obligatory on you to cure yourself–and know that the cause of that turning away is sins.”
Tafsir Surah al-Maa’idah, vol. 1, p. 483.
The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “The uttering of the words: “Subhan-Allah (Allah is free from imperfection), Al-hamdu lillah (all praise is due to Allah), La ilaha illallah (there is no true god except Allah) and Allahu Akbar (Allah is the Greatest)’ is dearer to me than anything over which the sun rises.”

Verily! In the creation of the heavens and the earth, and in the alternation of night and day, and the ships which sail through the sea with that which is of use to mankind, and the water (rain) which Allah sends down from the sky and makes the earth alive therewith after its death, and the moving (living) creatures of all kinds that He has scattered therein, and in the veering of winds and clouds which are held between the sky and the earth, are indeed Ayat (proofs, evidences, signs, etc.) for people of understanding.
Proof yet still some of the children of Adam deny Subhanu Allah
