THE ONLY REASON THEY PUNISHED THEM WAS BECAUSE THEY BELIEVED IN ALLAH, THE ALMIGHTY, THE ALL-PRAISEWORTHY. (Surat al-Buruj, 8)
He said: "Look for them at the edges of the world. Their lives are simple, their homes are on their backs, even if present they are not recognized, IF THEY ARE LOST NONE WILL LOOK FOR THEM, IF THEY ARE SICK NONE WILL VISIT THEM, and if they wish to marry none will come to them. If THEY DIE, NONE WILL ATTEND THEIR FUNERALS. They share their possessions equally among them and visit one another’s graves; their wishes are all the same, even if they are in different cities." (Sheikh Muhammad ibn Ibrahim Numani, al-Ghaybah al-Numani, p. 239)

They are hatching a plot. I too am hatching a plot. So bear with the unbelievers–bear with them for a while (Surat at-Tariq, 15-17)
Little time remains to the dominion of Islamic morality. The promised day is approaching:
