Be kind to your parents

Your Lord has decreed that you must not worship anything other than Him and that you must be kind to your parents. If either or both of your parents should become advanced in age, do not express to them words which show your slightest disappointment. Never yell at them but always speak to them with kindness.

Be humble and merciful towards them and say, “Lord, have mercy upon them as they cherished me in my childhood.”

Qur’an 17:23-24

Serve God, and associate nothing with Him. Be kind to parents, and the near kinsman, and to orphans, and to the needy, and to the neighbour who is of kin, and to the neighbour who is a stranger, and to the companion at your side, and to the traveller, and to that your right hands own. Surely God loves not the proud and boastful.

Qur’an 4:36

Divine justice

Since [philosophical] naturalism rejects the hereafter and any form of Divine justice, it rewards the criminal and the peacemaker with the same end: death. We all meet the same fate. So what ultimate value do the lives of Hitler or Martin Luther King Jr. really have? If their ends are the same, then what real value does atheism give us? Not much at all.

Divine wisdom

God has the picture and we merely have a pixel.

Understanding this facilitates spiritual and intellectual tranquillity because the believer understands that ultimately, all that occurs in the world is in line with a superior Divine wisdom that is based on superior Divine goodness. Refusing to except this is actually where the misotheist [someone who hates God or rejects His existence] falls into the quagmire of arrogance, egocentrism, and ultimately, despair. He has failed the test; his hatred of God makes him forget who God is and dismiss the fact of Divine wisdom, mercy, and goodness.
