The servant's life is a fluctuation between afflictions which he patiently endures and blessings for which he is grateful to His Lord. This is the reason why many of our predecessors used to say, "Faith is divided into two: gratitude and endurance. "

It is the certainty that whatever the Prophet ﷺ said is the absolute truth. Indeed, this is the certainty that we lack. Certainty that Allah ﷺ defends those who have faith. Certainty that this religion will inevitably prevail. Certainty that there is ease after hardship. Certainty that trials and tribulations precede victory. Certainty that victory will be granted to those truthful and patient servants who strive hard for Allah's sake, no matter how small their number may be. Certainty that no-one gives or causes himself or anyone else harm, good, life, death or resurrection except Allah ﷺ.
The Muslim Jama 'ah which strives to raise the word of Truth and carries out the instructions of Allah, enjoins good and forbids evil, fights to protect the Religion of Allah, strives hard to establish the Islamic Caliphate, and aims to bring people to the worship of their Lord, is specially in need of knowledge to guide it and outline its course of action.
Piety is an indispensable provision for the Muslim Jama'ah. Our striving to establish the religion of Allah on this earth will undoubtedly fail without piety and all our work will be turned down by Him.
