Allah being pleased with a person

Question ID: 26105

Assalam o alaikum,
Respected Mufti Sahab, how will one know that Allah is happy with him or her. How will one know whether the life he is living is a boon or a curse from Allah.
Like a person is praying salat on time, keeping fast, doing nafil ibadaat, giving charity, being in pardah if female and has a beard if male. but then he/she may not be good looking, they may not have good food to eat. He/she might not be having a job and other facilities. They may not have money to spend on outings and shopping etc.
They may be poor and jobless does this mean that Allah is not happy with them as they might have broken some laws of Allah inspite of doing the above good acts. Or is this a test and in reality Allah is happy with them.
So if Allah is happy this why does his banda suffer. We heard that Allah loves his banda/bandi more than 70 times that of a mother. So no mother wants to see her sons or daughters suffering and in pain and distress, so why Allah gives pains to his banda/bandi even though they are obedient. If they were disobedient then that would have been another case. Please assist.

Jazzak Allah!

When a Muslim, male or female, follows the Shariat then they should know that Allaah is happy with them. the benchmark is not fame, health, or beauty.
