If you wish to reach where Awliya Allah reached, you have to be patient on bala, affliction. That is the door to Paradise, because when Allah ﷻ sends afflictions and you continue on your path without looking here and there, you reach that door.
Do not fight with people for certain issues. If someone wants to fight say, “I don’t want to fight.” Do not raise your sleeves like a boxer and say, “Do you want to fight? Let’s fight!” It is better to say, “I am sorry, my brother. You are right,” and Allah will be more happy with you. Be patient and wait on the afflictions like Awliya Allah, and keep going until you reach where they reached.
