”Allāh has angels who roam the roads, seeking out those who remember Him. So, if they find those who remember Allāh;
They call out; ‘come see what you’re looking for!’ and the Angels encircle them with their wings up to the sky.
Then, their Lord asks them- though He Knows better than them- ‘What do My slaves say?’
The Angels reply: 'They say: subhan'Allāh, Allāhu'Akbar, and Alhamdulillāh.'
Allāh then says: ‘Did they see Me?’
The Angels reply: 'No! By Allāh, they didn't see You.'
Allāh says: "How it would have been if they saw Me?’
The Angels reply: 'If they saw You, they would worship You more devoutly and praise You more, and declare Your freedom from any resemblance to anything more often.'
Allāh will say: 'What do they ask Me for?'
The Angels reply: ‘They ask You for Paradise.’
Allāh says: ‘Did they see it?’
The Angels say: ‘No! By Allaah, O Lord! They didn’t see it.’
Allāh says: ‘How it would have been if they saw it?’
The Angels say: 'If they saw it, they would have greater desire for it, and would seek it with greater zeal.'
Allāh says: 'From what do they seek refuge?'
The Angels reply: 'They seek refuge from the Fire.'
Allāh says: 'Did they see it?'
The Angels say: 'If they saw it, they would flee from it swiftly, and would have extreme fear of it.'
Then, Allāh says: 'I make you witnesses that I have Forgiven them.'
One of the Angels would then say: 'There was such and such a person amongst them, and he was not one of them. Rather, he had just come for some need of his.'
Allāh would then say: ‘These are people whose companions will not be saddened.’”

Subhan’Allāh! Look at how Allāh rewards those who remember Him? and how Merciful He is towards them? Wouldn’t such hadīth urge us to be better, one who always remembers Him, because when we always remember Him, we are being conscious of our acts and deeds, that we need also be prompt and constantly praying our 5 times daily salāh.
Indeed, it all starts from the heart (niyyah) then the mouth (dhikr and abstaining form evil utterance of words) then the hands (zakat, sadaqah, helpin, etc) then the whole body (falling down bowing and in prostration unto Him).
Isn’t that beautiful? To be told by the Angel to Allāh that You remember Him and in return Allāh rewards you of His Forgiveness? Allāhu’Akbar!
And aren’t such people the best of companions to have in this dunya? That with their righteousness we are also by His Love and Blessing for such people we are also being showered by His Mercy?
So please realize that with little utterance of praising and glorifying Him, we are bestowed upon with His infinite Mercy and Love. Subhan’Allāh!
So what are you still complaining for?
Subhan’Allāh! May Allāh grant and bless us with righteous companions that will help us become better Muslims, that would understand our struggles and encourage us always to enjoin what is good and forbid what is evil, and at the end we ask Allāh that He makes us a rightful companion to our friends, fellow Muslims and to our family. in sha Allāh!
