If a believer gets what he asks he should thank Allah and if he does not get what he asks in this life, his patience will also get him reward from Allah. "Whatever good they do, nothing will be rejected of them; for Allah knows well those who are the pious". (3:115) It is the duty of every Muslim to lead unblemished life on this earth and he should not be a tool to spread hatred, violence or misunderstanding. He should be always on the side of truth and justice. He should respect and care all creations of God. When in difficulty seek His guidance and help. He alone can help you.
"Indeed your Lord is Allah, Who created the heavens and the earth… He brings the night as a cover over the day, seeking it rapidly and (He created) the sun, the moon, the stars subjected to His Command. Surely, His is the creation and Commandment. Blessed be Allah the Lord of the mankind, Djinn and all that exists. Invoke your Lord with humility and in secret. He likes not the aggressors. And do not do mischief on the earth, after it has been set in order, and invoke Him with fear and hope: Surely, Allah’s Mercy is (ever) near unto the good-doers." (7:54-56).
