What is predestined for you, u shall see itBeing sad will not change anythingSo, don’t be sadSadness spoils your lifeDestroys your happinessand turns it into wretchednessSo, don’t be sad
Supplication is your shield
Prayer is your beacon
Prostration is your means
So, don’t be sad
See how vast is the earth
How nice are the gardens and forests
How bright are the stars
All are happy, but you are sad!
So, don’t be sad.
You have sweet water to drinkFresh air to breath
Feet to walk with
You sleep safely in your bed
So,why be sad?
Every cloud has a silver lining
After long nights, comes the bright sun
Life will soon give you a smile
So, be ready to get it!And don’t be sadReal life is that spent in happinessSo cross out your sad days from your agePeace of mind is the real treasureSorrow avails notSo, don’t be sadhttp://trueislamiclife.wordpress.com/2012/02/01/dont-be-sadby-aidh-al-qarni/
To You Alone I Complain
“O Allah! To you alone I complain my weakness, my scarcity of resources, and the humiliation I have been subjected to by people.
O Most Merciful of those who have mercy! You are the Lord of the weak, and You are My Lord too.
To whom have you entrusted me? To a distant person who receives me with hostility? Or to an enemy to whom you have granted authority over my affair?
But as long as You are not angry with me, I do no care, except that Your favour is a more expansive relief to me. I seek refuge in the light of Your Face by which all darkness is dispelled and every affair of this world and the next is set right, lest Your anger or Your displeasure descend upon me.
Yours is the right to reproach until You are pleased.”
