Faith (iman) is the greatest blessing and the most beautiful thing for humanity. It is one thing being Muslim while iman is stronger. Our Holy Prophet (SAW) describes how to be a mumin (believer). Those who say “La Ilaha Illallah Muhammadun Rasulullah” have entered Islam but iman is something else. It is stronger.
There is a verse that says, “Do not say you have believed. Say you have become Muslim,” because “faith has not entered your hearts yet.” There are many things to do with faith and one of them is to wish for your Muslim brother, your mumin brother, what you wish of goodness for yourself, to wish from Allah goodness for him too. The believer does not have the attribute of saying, “Let me have it and not him.” This attribute is with those who are not mumin. If you think, “Let this man be like me too. Let him be better than me. May Allah give him more,” you would not lose anything, nothing comes out of your pocket. Just as a wish says our Holy Prophet (SAW), it is from faith to think for everyone to be better than you.
This is not just the case for money but for people to be on the path of guidance and for all to be on the right path. It is from faith for you to wish for Allah to protect others from committing sin and doing evil. That is why we see what the situation of the whole Islamic world is like. We ask them guidance from Allah. We ask Allah for them to be good and to stay away from evil and bad ways. Because this is also good for us. It is good to have good people around. If bad people are everywhere it would harm you too anyway.
Faith means being intelligent (having a head on one’s shoulders). When people are intelligent, they understand better how beautiful the commands of Allah (JJ) and the sayings of our Holy Prophet (SAW) are. Therefore, we wish for goodness for everybody Inshallah. May they all be guided and be on the right path Inshallah. We wish from Allah for material and spiritual goodness for His believer and Muslim servants.
