Narrated Abu Huraira (radhiAllahu ‘anhu):
I heard Allah’s Apostle (ﷺ) saying, “The good deeds of any person will not make him enter Paradise.” (i.e., None can enter Paradise through his good deeds.) They (the Prophet’s companions) said, ‘Not even you, O Allah’s Apostle?’ He said, “Not even myself, unless Allah bestows His favor and mercy on me.” So be moderate in your religious deeds and do the deeds that are within your ability: and none of you should wish for death, for if he is a good doer, he may increase his good deeds, and if he is an evil doer, he may repent to Allah.”
Ibn Abi Dunya wrote:
Abdullaah said, “It has been narrated to us on the authority of some wise men that tawakkal (reliance on Allaah) has three stages: Firstly, not complaining, secondly, being content and thirdly, loving it (by firmly believing that Allaah always decrees what is best for His creation).”
Success is relative. Find what makes you happy and go after it. People will probably try to hold you back or discourage you from moving forward, but that’s most often just because they didn’t have the guts to be willing to sacrifice any and everything to chase their happiness. Be kind to those people, but put their opinions aside. You will only be as successful and happy as you’re willing to be, so ask yourself, how bad do you want it?
