Should I Quit Being A Practicing Muslim?

confused

 

People who are practicing see others who aren’t practicing Muslims but have everything going for them, so they consider not practicing. They have a secure job, wealth and seem to be happy while those who are practicing, seem to be struggling on a day-to-day basis, just trying to get by. If we look at Pharaoh and Musa (peace be upon him), you can see the status of two individuals. Musa (Peace be upon him) who worshipped Allah subhana wata’ala, called to tawheed (oneness of Allah) but didn’t have an abundance of wealth. While Pharaoh called to worshipping himself, challenged Allah subhana wata’ala and had an abundance of wealth. It goes to show, that wealth isn’t everything and just because you are wealthy doesn’t mean you are given a high rank in life. Perhaps Allah subhana wata’ala is testing you with your wealth. And just because you aren’t wealthy, doesn’t mean Allah subhana wata’ala doesn’t love you and your rank is much higher, while you worship Allah and turn to Him. No matter what your circumstance in life is, do your best to practice and don’t allow shaytaan to turn you away from the rememberance of Allah. A person with riches that doesn’t practice, is not rich due to the low level of eman (faith) but a person who practices and isn’t rich, is actually rich with eman (faith) which will weigh heavily on the scales on the day of judgement.
