What could be better than being a true slave of Allah? One whom Allah loves and forgives? Our goal in this life is to embody the characteristics of the people of Paradise and become true believers, and as the Noble Qur'an is our ultimate source of guidance; we must extract the invaluable lessons from it and take heed of Allah's reminders.
One of my favorite quotes is by Barbara J. Winter: “When you come to the end of all the light you know, and it’s time to step into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing that one of two things shall happen: You will either be given something solid to stand on or you will be taught to fly.”
Remember, our dua’s do not go waste. Scholars have pointed out that when Muslims make dua’, it is heard and accepted but this acceptance, however, can be in a number of different ways. “Either Allaah will respond and fulfil the desire of the person who made the dua’, or He will ward off some evil from him because of the dua’, or He will make something good easy for him to attain because of it, or He will save it with Him for him on the Day of Resurrection when he will be most in need of it.
It's relatively easier to convey truth to outsiders, but real potential of a Daee can be only tested, the way he convinces and preaches to his family members, and manages to achieve this goal.. .. preaching to family members & relatives according to me is world`s toughest thing, all because they know all our flaws, also because many sentiments are involved, and a certain invisible barrier..
