Stop Envying

We always look at the people who have more then us.

We look and we envy.

And we wish we had all of that.
We wish we had more money

We wish we had a closet full of designer shoes and bags.

Or kitchen counters full of the most beautiful and up to date appliances.

We wish we could go for holiday whenever we wanted.

We wish we could do up our houses in the most exquisite fashion.

Oh how we look and wish.

Because in our minds we think that having all that will make us happy.
We think that because they have all of that they are happy.

We think that money will buy us happiness.

And maybe it will, to a certain extent.
A temporary happiness.
Until we get tired of whatever we bought.

We think and wonder, how did they get so rich, and keep getting richer?

We work so hard and we don't get rich.

Well what you need to do is change your thoughts, and change your point of view.

And you will realize that you too are rich. In so many ways besides money and fancy things.

Start looking at those below you.

Look at the person who only has one pair of clothing which is old and tattered.
And when you look back at your own cupboard you will see how rich you are.

Look at a person who has to live on the streets, with no roof or walls, no bed and blankets to protect him from the wind, rain and, cold.
And then when you look at your house and everything in it you will see how rich you are.

Start looking at all the things you do have instead of focusing on all the things you don't.

Remember that whoever you are envying they are probably envying someone else who has more.

And there's probably people who are envying you because they have less

The more you chase money and things of this world the more it will elude you.

Don't let other people's life distract you from all the wonderful bounties you have.

It might be that you are envying a person, but he might be going through some trial that you cannot see.

It might that he has lots of worries or problems that you do not know of.

And the more money and Duya you have the more you will want, you will never be satisfied.

So just stop chasing it.
Thank Allah continously for what you already have and Insha'Allah he will give you things you thought you could never afford.

Don't ever get attached to your possession for they are never really yours, everything belongs to Allah and he can take them away at any moment.

And always remember that everything you and everyone else has is not because of your own doings.
That is what Allah has allotted out to you.

You will not get more then what is meant for you.

So be content with it.

And Always say Alhamdulillah!
My heart is content knowing that what is meant for me will never miss me, and what misses me was never meant for me.
(Imam Shafi'ee رحمة الله عليه)

And it may be that you dislike a thing while it is good for you, and it may be that you love a thing while it is evil for you, and Allah knows, while you do not know.
(Surah Al-Baqara : Verse 216)

“Always look at those above you for the Deen and those below you for the dunya.” [Bukhāri]"

Peace Despite The Pain

And suddenly a sense of peace descends despite the pain.

And we will have happiness after we experience misery.

First Love ❤️

We put our whole hearts into things that are temporary, and we still wonder why we end up with a broken heart.
We place our full trust in everything besides Allah, and then we wonder why things don't turn out right.
We set ourselves up for misery, heartbreak and pain by relying on and attaching ourselves to temporary things, we get attached to people, to places and to things. And when any one of the things we're attached to is taken from us, which is inevitable in this temporary abode, we become devastated, we feel like we can't carry on anymore. Everything comes crumbling down.
But it shouldn't be like that, we shouldn't be attaching ourselves to these things.

We should attach ourselves to Allah!
Because Allah is eternal.
He will always, always be with us.
You will never have to part from Him, ever.

Yes we're allowed to love things and people in the Dunya, but we shouldn't let the love overtake and control us, and yes we're allowed to feel sad and gri…
