“ Every human being irrespective of caste and religion, gender and ethnicity, country and social status, has to go through trials and tribulations. Whether it be a physical or spiritual, emotional, psychological, or financial, when the Prophets of Allah and the Imams of Allah were tested and tried, how are we to be left alone?
So all of us will have problems in life, some bigger than others.
But there is another side of the coin we do not usually realize. When we leave our homes in the morning and return at night, to our families and loved ones, in peace and shelter, with Rizq and Ronaq, irrespective of what trials we are going through, there is so much to thank Allah for the day which passed. Can we imagine what evil could have befallen us, which did not?
We simply cannot imagine.
The smaller things we take for granted, our health, our faith, senses, feelings, the jallebi we got to eat, the moments passed without sinning, the rain drop we enjoyed, the football game we won, the poor man we helped, the smile we gave to a beggar, the pizza which tasted great, the son which comes running to you when you get home, the love we received, the awful traffic we survived on the road, the water we drink, the friends we joked around with, this is the bright side of life.
If i were to conclude the proposition by trying to let us all know how little we give thanks for and how much we worry, I would say, that if we were given the freedom to write our own destinies without any boundaries and limitations, even then we would not have written for ourselves the bounties, naymats, blessings, miracles, gifts, Allah has already provided us with.“
