Confidence in one’s beliefs and goals without the support of the majority can make or break a man. It takes everything to stand alone and nothing to join the crowd. Understanding one’s beliefs and ideologies is one sure step in being able to face the scrutiny of the majority. If you believe in yourself, nothing can stop you from being happy.
Those who worship God for the hope of gaining, they’re not real worshippers, they’re merchants. Those who worship God out of fear (of punishment), they’re slaves. And those who worship God to be grateful towards their creator, they are the free people, and their worship is a real one. – Imam Hussain
