If you find yourself in a tough situation, do the following:
- Ask yourself, what is the worst that can happen?
- Prepare yourself to cope and deal with that worst-case scenario.
- lf something bad does occur, meet it with calm nerves in order to deal with the situation better.
(Those [i.e. believers] unto whom the people [hypocrites] said: ‘Verily, the people [pagans] have gathered against you [a great army], therefore, fear them. But it [only] increased them in Faith, and they said: 'Allah [Alone] is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs [for us].)
(Qur’an 3: I 73)
