This is Mashallah pure brilliance that only comes from a very caring & deeply thotful sacred mind. It’s moving, it’s a jolting reminder & shud not b ignored. Alhamdulilah for all that the muslimah said & for giving me the opportunity to find it from the deep garbage of the cyber world & b able to reshare it.
Many thanks for writing, sharing & allowing resharing. Jazaki Allah khairan.
“Be thankful for what you have & say الحمد لله”
Why is it that we are never happy with what we have? Why are we never content? Why are we always complaining? Why do we want more & more? Why is it so hard to appreciate what we have? Why is it that we always seem to be chasing the next big thing. Constantly lusting after the newest and latest object.
Have we ever taken a moment & counted the blessings Allah ﷻ has bestowed upon us? Have we ever just thought how lucky we actually are? Have we ever thought about our Sisters & Brothers around the world who don’t have what we have? Yet you see them smiling. You see them getting on with what they have.
These beautiful souls have no shelter above them, they’re sleeping on floors filled with stones & dirt. They have no clean water & have to go miles and miles searching for it. They have to starve themselves, some dyeing due to malnutrition & starvation. Is this anywhere neat to the life we’re living?
Think about those innocent children that are being killed for no reason at all! Think of those kids who go to school, not knowing when they return home their dad/mum won’t be there anymore! Think of those Mothers who see their child being taken in front of them! Think of that Father who earns so hard for his family whilst being tortured and hurt!
Our lives are luxurious and nothing compared to those around the world, yet we are never satisfied.
We have a peaceful & beautiful shelter. We have clean water running in our homes 24/7. We have hot fresh food prepared for us everyday. We have our parents & families in front of us. We have our close ones by us. So, what are we complaining about?
We can easily wake up tomorrow with these blessings taken from us. Instead of complaining & always lusting & yearning for more, be greatful & thankful to Allah ﷻ for everything. We are truly blessed & lucky.
Never forget to say الحمد لله
