Husayn ibn ‘Ali (r.a.) on being Examined by Misfortunes

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Husayn ibn ‘Ali (r.a.) said, “This world has changed, snubbed, and its good has turned tail.  Nothing has remained from it except a thing that is as scanty as the leftover of a cup and a mean life that is like a noxious grazing.  Have you not noticed that the right is ignored and the evil is not forbidden?  This is sufficient for making the believer’s desire for meeting Allah rightfully.  I consider death as happiness and life with the wrongdoers as boredom.  People are certainly the slaves of this world.  The religion is only a slaver on their tongues. They turn it wherever their livelihood demands.  If they are examined by misfortunes, the religious will be very little.”
