Having good thoughts of Allāh

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said,
❝Allah the Most High said, ‘I am as My servant thinks (expects) I am. I am with him when he mentions Me. If he mentions Me to himself, I mention him to Myself; and if he mentions Me in an assembly, I mention him in an assembly greater than it. If he draws near to Me a hand’s length, I draw near to him an arm’s length. And if he comes to Me walking, I go to him at speed.❞
[Sahih Al-Bukhari]

Imam Nawawi (may Allah have Mercy upon him) said:
❝The scholars say that expecting the best of Allah is to expect that He will have Mercy on him and relieve him of hardship.❞ [Sharh Sahih Muslim]

Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allah have Mercy upon him) said:
❝Most people – in fact, all of them except those protected by Allah – assume other than the truth, and assume the worst. Most people believe that they are deprived of their rights, have bad luck, deserve more than what Allah gave them, and it is as if they are saying: ‘My Lord has wronged me and deprived me of what I deserve,’ and his soul bears witness to this while his tongue denies it and refuses to openly state this. And whoever digs into his soul and comes to know its ins and outs will see this in it like fire in a triggered explosion…And if you dig into anyone’s soul, you will see that he blames fate and would rather have something else happen to him than what actually did, and that things should be this way or that…So, dig into your own self: are you protected from this? If you are safe from this, you have been protected from something great. Otherwise, I do not see that you have been saved.❞ [Zad al-Ma’ad]

Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allah have Mercy upon him) also said:
❝The more you have good expectations of your Lord and hope in Him, the more you will rely on and trust in Him. This is why some explained true reliance and trust to be having good expectations of Allah. In reality, having good expectations of Him leads to relying on and trusting in Him, as it is unthinkable that one can trust in someone that he has bad expectations of or no hope in, and Allah Knows best.❞ [Tahdhib Madarij as-Salikin]

“Don’t hate your situation no matter how difficult it is. Remember your life is going as Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala planned it. He will never burden you with something that you can’t handle and there is wisdom behind every trial; try to learn the lesson because the trial won’t end until you learn your lesson.”

This is hard, but do it for the sake of Allaah Subhana wa ta a’la! Your reward lies with Him alone !

❝Decrease the frequency with which you fall into error, accept apologizes (from those who wronged you), and forgive the person who wronged you. Be the type of person from whom people generally expect good things and from whose evil people feel safe.❞
