“O you who believe. If you support (the cause of) Allah, He will support you and make your feet firm." (Quran, 47:7)
If you are hungry in this world, if you are sad, unwell or oppressed, remember the eternal bliss of paradise. If you do this, then your losses are really profits, and the hardships you face are really gifts from Allah ﷻ.
The most wisest of people are those who strive for the hereafter, because it is better and everlasting, but don't forget Jannah is not easy to attain, it's not cheap, so strive hard for it, and help others along the way.
If you sincerely turn to Allah, you will sense His protection and presence. He will provide you with ease for all that you do. Allah informs us in many verses (like the one above) that He will help, protect, and raise us to high levels. Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah (Rahimahulla) also brilliantly explains this in the following:
📗 "Had it not been for Allah healing His servants with the medicines of trials and tribulations, they would have truly transgressed, oppressed and sinned. So when Allah wants good for His slave, he gives him a dosage of this medication of trials, in accordance to his situation. It causes him to expel his destructive ailments (from within). So He teaches, cleans, and purifies him such that He prepares him for the highest level on this world - that of worshiping Him Alone, and the highest reward of the Hereafter - which is seeing Him and being near to Him." (Zaad al-Ma'ad, 4/195)
