We all have our moments of worries in this world. There is always anticipation for something good to come in our life. It could be getting a better grade at school, getting a job, getting married, wanting children, good health etc. We are always waiting for something to come to us, which could lead to worries, pain and suffering if things don`t go the way we want them to.
I have noticed one thing. When I`m thankful/grateful I have better control over what is happening in my life. My kusho in salah is better and I feel more confident at whatever life is giving me. That is one way of achieving peace of mind.
When we meet other people be it friends or family acquaintances or colleague’s we get to know their different lives and learn from it. If we aren`t that confident, looking at someone who has more than us, that makes us feel less fortunate. Though it should not be like that. We should always be thankful for what we have. When we see others that have more than us, we should also remember those that has less than us also. Than we will feel real gratefulness and ihsan in all our matters. Because gratefulness leads to recognizing where it is all coming from; Our Creator. We are in need of whatever good that he bestows on us. All the time.
We are so blessed that it`s so sad that we still at times lose our confidence. At those times the small gestures that comes from our surroundings make us believe in ourselves and keeps us focused on what is right.
I am so thankful for each and every that has made an impact on my life that has led me to the one I am right now. I could not thank each and every enough. If it wouldn`t have been for you people I wouldn`t have been where I am today.
I also want to thank every person that has been mean to me some way or the other. Because it was because of my reaction to that suffering that has given me push to become what I am today. If it wouldn`t be for you people I wouldn`t have been wiser in understanding the human kind.
And last but not least I would say that may Allah shower the best of his blessings of each and every muslim in this world. May Allah give them the best in both worlds, keep us steadfast on the deen, keep guiding us and keep us firm and give us patience to help each and every that is not as blessed as ourselves and reach out to the people who is suffering in any way. Ameen summa ameen.
