But if it be you

It is not the darkness that is scary
It is the absence of light

It is not the hatred that is scary
It is the absence of love
It is not the despair that is scary
It is the absence of hope
It is not the trials that are scary
It is the absence of faith
It is not life that is scary
It is the absence of meaning

But if it be you
If you are to be the only tree
That is not uprooted
If you are to be the only lamp
That has not burnt out
Persevere

For if it be you
Standing alone
Upholding the truth
Spreading goodness
Then persevere
For you may appear to be alone

But nay,
Allah is with you
Allah is always with you.

Say (O Muhammad SAW): “Not equal are Al-Khabith (all that is evil and bad as regards things, deeds, beliefs, persons, foods, etc.) and At-Taiyib (all that is good as regards things, deeds, beliefs, persons, foods, etc.), even though the abundance of Al-Khabith (evil) may please you.” So fear Allah much [(abstain from all kinds of sins and evil deeds which He has forbidden) and love Allah much (perform all kinds of good deeds which He has ordained)], O men of understanding in order that you may be successful.
Surat al-Maeda 5:100

Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Islam began as a something strange and it will return to being strange, so blessed are the strangers.”

Sahih Muslim 145

Abdullah ibn Amr reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “We are now in this day. Blessed are the strangers.” It was said, “O Messenger of Allah, who are the strangers?” The Prophet said, “Righteous people among many evil people. Those who disobey them are more numerous than those who obey them.”

Musnad Ahmad 6612
