Expose yourself to the gentle breezes of your Lord’s mercy.

It is related in a prophetic tradition, “Seek goodness in all the time you spend on earth…” [2: Ibn Abi al-Dunya, al-Faraj ba’da al-Shiddah, no. 27] 
Expose yourself to the gentle breezes of your Lord’s mercy. Verily Allah has gentle breezes of mercy that He touches with whosoever He wills. Whoever is touched by [one of those breezes] experiences happiness so intense that he will never know sadness for the rest of eternity. Among the greatest of His (Allah’s) breezes of mercy is to be blessed to pray at a moment when the prayer is instantly answered, and during that moment the supplicant is asking Allah for Paradise and protection from Hell ̶ and his prayer is answered and he attains to eternal bliss! God says: Whoever is pulled back from Hell and entered into Paradise has achieved the great victory. (3:185)
