I have been asked these same questions whenever I meet any person (especially elders), “How is life going?”, “How are your studies going?” and I give them the same old and formal reply “Alhamdulillah”.
But there was one man who asked me a different question for which I couldn’t give the formal reply, and the question itself was so unique that I had to stop for a moment before replying. Instead of asking me about my life, he asked,” How is your Imaan/Islam?” and I just gave him a straight reply “Not good”. Although I took some time to search for an answer I don’t know it felt like something or someone else gave that answer for me but the most tragic part is that it was the truth!
I don’t think that person will see this status but he really helped me figure out my priorities and life goals.
Now that I remember this, I pray that May Allah grant him goodness in this life and hereafter. Ameen.
So remember Me; I will remember you. And be grateful to Me and do not deny Me.

Those who have believed and whose hearts are assured by the remembrance of Allah. Unquestionably, by the remembrance of Allah hearts are assured.

and the men who remember Allah often and the women who do so- for them Allah has prepared forgiveness and a great reward.
[Qur’an: Chapter #33 (Surat Al-Ahzab: The Combined Forces) Verse #35]
Satan has overcome them and made them forget the remembrance of Allah. Those are the party of Satan. Unquestionably, the party of Satan – they will be the losers.
