The Noble Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said:--
"The one who comes out of the humiliation of disobedience into the honour of obedience,
Allah the Exalted will make him rich without wealth, strengthen him without soldiers, and
honour him without a clan."
It has also been reported that he, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, went out to his companions and said:--
"How do you find yourselves this morning?" They replied, "As believers in Allah." He said:- "What is
the sign of your Imaan (belief)?" They replied: "We are patient in times of hardship, grateful in times
of ease and content with whatever has been predestined." The Prophet, alaihi-s-Salaat Wa-s-Salaam,
said:- "By the Lord of the Ka'aba, you are truly believers."
The Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said:- "There are 4 gems in the body of the son of Adam that
are removed by 4 things-- as for the gems they are INTELLECT, RELIGION, SHAME and GOOD DEEDS.
Anger removes the Intellect, envy removes religion, desire removes shame and backbiting removes
He also said, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, "Allah does NOT give someone 5 things until He has prepared
another 5 things for him:- HE does not give him gratitude except that He has prepared for him an increase
[in provision and sustenance]. He does not give him supplication [Du'a] except that He has prepared its award.
He does not give him the asking for forgiveness [Istighfar] except that He has prepared for him forgiveness;
He does not give him the asking for repentance except that He has prepared for him acceptance; and He does
not give him charity except that He has prepared for him its reward."
