Good is Good in every matter of a believer (Hadith Prophet Muhammad ﷺ)

There is immense criticism on Islam by non Muslims worldwide for they think the Muslims are doomed by following Islam. For them, salvation lies in following Jesus (Prophet Eesa, peace be upon him). But perhaps they do not know, we have a guaranteed salvation by none else Allah, the sole Creator of the universe and the most merciful.

The guaranteed salvation means a lot to us as even if think of doing a good feat and for some reasons fail to do it, we shall still be rewarded. And we think evil, we will not be penalized unless we commit the that evil act. That is why a believer earns goodness both in good and otherwise times. Read the following hadith attributed to Prophet Muhammad ﷺ and know how!

This Hadith is quoted in Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim: Statement of Asceticism and Piety / Chapter In the statement that good is good in every matter of a believer / as Hadith No. 7500 as under:

 Sulaiman, Thabit, Abdur Rahman bin Abi Layli, it was narrated from Hazrat Sahib that the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said: The believing man also has a strange condition that he is good in every situation. And this is not understood by anyone except the believing man that if he is afflicted with any pain and he is grateful, then there is a reward for him in that too, and if any harm befalls him and he perseveres, then it will be rewarded for him. I am also rewarded

Arabic Text:. 
 وَاللَّفْظُ لِشَيْبَانَ حَدَّثَنَا سُلَيْمَانُ حَدَّثَنَا ثَابِتٌ عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ أَبِي لَيْلَی عَنْ صُهَيْبٍ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّی اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ عَجَبًا لِأَمْرِ الْمُؤْمِنِ إِنَّ أَمْرَهُ کُلَّهُ خَيْرٌ وَلَيْسَ ذَاکَ لِأَحَدٍ إِلَّا لِلْمُؤْمِنِ إِنْ أَصَابَتْهُ سَرَّائُ

So let us remain steadfast in every situation we may be in, good or otherwise. If we have faith in Allah that whatever befalls on us is a test and accept our situation as something from Allah, all will will be good. And it is this steadfastness that brings glad tidings to every believer. 
May Allāh (سبحانه و تعالى‎) help us understand Qur'ān and follow the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, which is embodiment of commandments of Allah contained in the Qur'ān. May Allah help us to be like the ones He loves and let our lives be lived helping others and not making others' lives miserable or unlivable. May all our wrong doings, whether intentional or unintentional, be forgiven before the angel of death knocks on our door. 
وَمَا عَلَيۡنَاۤ اِلَّا الۡبَلٰغُ الۡمُبِيۡنُ‏ 
(36:17) and our duty is no more than to clearly convey the Message.”
That is Our duty is only to convey to you the message that Allah has entrusted us with. Then it is for you to accept it or reject it. We have not been made responsible for making you accept it forcibly, and if you do not accept it, we shall not be seized in consequence of your disbelief, you will yourselves be answerable for your actions on Day of Resurrection.

May Allah forgive me if my posts ever imply a piety far greater than I possess. I am most in need of guidance.

Reading the Qur'ān should be a daily obligation of a Muslim - Reading it with translation will make it meaningful. But reading its Exegesis / Tafsir will make you understand it fully. It will also help the Muslims to have grasp over social issues and their answers discussed in the Qur'an and other matter related to inter faith so that they are able to discuss issues with non-Muslims with authority based on refences from Qur'an.
