PRAISE BE TO ALLAH,
Islam is the basis for your life to move in a manner which has positivity, aim, optimism, sincerity all this with the belief that no matter where your life is heading towards there is someone who will always be there for you, with you, to Guide you, to keep you Firm in what comes your way. Hardships are to be faced with a thought in mind that our work is to stay Patient, remembering that what we are into is because Allah (Subhan wa ta’ala) wants us to be at that place at that point of time. HE doesn’t want you to come up with solutions what HE is seeing in you is how you react to what comes your way, be it good or bad. HE will put you into difficulties and HE is the one who will take you out from it. Your job is to stay Firm, make your Imaan strong. Remember that we all plan and HE plans and HE is the best of planner.
The Prophet (salAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam) encouraged us to thank Allah when you hear a pleasant news as well as when you witness something disturbing. When He (salAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam ) received good news he would say
“Al hamdu lillahi al-adhee bi-nimatihee tatimmu as-saalihaat.” (All praise is for Allah by whose favor good works are accomplished)
When he (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam) received a bad news, he said,
“Al hamdu lillahi alaa kulli haal” ( All praise is for Allah in all circumstances).
We are continuously finding someone to idealize when we know that a man who is known as the best man to live on this earth. We follow someone and are in trapped of their way of life. We relate to their lives and make a living accordingly. If only people knew what they are missing by not following the path of our beloved Prophet (salAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam). If we try to move on the path of the Prophet (salAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam) we can very much save ourselves from this sinful world. The positivity that we spend our whole lives for is destined for us in the form of Islam.
This life is a test, it is onto us how we perceive it, how we live it in the light of Islam. There will be ups and down. Our attitude should always remain with a sense of hope, sense of optimism. With the thinking that there is light at the end of the tunnel.
“When I cry or lose or bruise, so long as I am still alive nothing is ultimate. So long as there is still a tomorrow, a next moment, there is hope, there is change, there is redemption. What is lost, is not lost forever.”
People will come with their own problems to you what you have to do is make your life as an example, that they see it as an encouragement.
