Seek Help through Patience and Prayer

And seek help through patience and prayer; and indeed, it is difficult except for the humbly submissive [to Allah]. (Quran 2:45).

Always Speak the Truth

And do not come near the wealth of the orphan—unless intending to enhance it—until they attain maturity. Give full measure and weigh with justice. We never require of any soul more than what it can afford. Whenever you speak, maintain justice—even regarding a close relative. And fulfil your covenant with Allah. This is what He has commanded you, so perhaps you will be mindful. (Quran 6:152).

Always be Grateful

No soul can ever die without Allah’s Will at the destined time. Those who desire worldly gain, We will let them have it, and those who desire heavenly reward, We will grant it to them. And We will reward those who are grateful. (Quran 3:145).

Consider Problem an Opportunity

We will certainly test you with a touch of fear and famine and loss of property, life, and crops. Give good news to those who patiently endure. (Quran 2:155).

Avoid Idle Talk and Gossips

And tell My servants to say that which is best. Indeed, Satan induces [dissension, seeks to sow discord] among them. Indeed Satan is ever, to mankind, a clear enemy. (Quran 17:53).

Be Kind and Promote Justice

Worship Allah [alone] and associate none with Him. And be kind to parents, relatives, orphans, the poor, near and distant neighbours, close friends, [needy] travellers, and those [bondspeople] in your possession. Surely Allah does not like whoever is arrogant, boastful. (Quran 4:36).

Avoid Anger and Exasperation

[They are] those who donate in prosperity and adversity, control their anger, and pardon others. And Allah loves the good-doers. (Quran 3:134).

Be Mindful of Time

By the [passage of] time! Surely humanity is in [grave] loss. Except those who have faith, do good, and urge each other to the truth, and urge each other to perseverance. (Quran 103:1-3).

Stay Away from Jealousy

And do not crave what Allah has given some of you over others. Men will be rewarded according to their deeds and women [equally] according to theirs. Rather, ask Allah for His bounties. Surely Allah has [perfect] knowledge of all things. (Quran 4:32).
