The Qur'an states that hopefulness is an important characteristic of believers and, at the same, an indication of their faith. Knowing that everything happens according to Allah's will, believers do not fall into despair or become hopeless and pessimistic. And, since believers know that Allah will accept their prayers, they do not doubt, even for a second, that a seemingly terrible event is simply a part of their test and that eventually it will work out for the best.
Hope in Allah's mercy and Paradise greatly influence a person's whole life, attitude toward life, sincerity of worship, and resolve. Those who hope for Allah's mercy cannot do anything that He has forbidden, ignore something that He has commanded, say a bad word, or neglect the voice of their conscience. They advise people to good and right, discourage them from evil, and carry out with enthusiasm many other forms of worship Allah has commanded.
Within this enthusiastic make-up there is no room for hopelessness. These are the people with whom Allah is content, and to whom He has promised Paradise.
