Editors' note: Hope is an aspect of love. This is one positive emotion almost everyone has. Unfortunately, most put their hope in either the body
or their possessions. Hope in other people and ideals can lead to hope in your own spirit in relation to God. Hope in God is part of love on a high
level. Abdullah believes that the only genuine hope is to understand that Allah is compassionate and merciful, giving us the possibility of perfecting
ourselves in this lifetime. Abdullah encourages us to ‘emulate the Lord’s example’ and have hope that we will make this Earth a fit place for all to
live in harmony.
