familiar with that sentence? yeah,i've said it before too. a lot. but have we ever thought of "i'm grateful because i have.." are u getting the picture here?
we humans are never satisfied with what we have.
already having a nokia 3110,now i want a blackberry.
ugh,i'm short. if only i can be 2 inches taller.
look at me! i'm so fat! if only i had a body like *****~
already blessed with great family and friends,but we roll our eyes hearing their nags.
okay,who likes to be nagged. but they nag because of something we're doing wrong. don't take everything u have now for granted. u might lose them someday and don't say i didn't warn ya. Allah has given us A LOT. open your eyes,your heart,your mind(this is so maher zain :) ).
your healthy body,caring family and friends,a sane mind to think with,your LIFE.
all of that and more is a blessing. be grateful guys.
these past few days i've come to know some friends who are less fortunate and it made me think. they touched me with their bravery. how strong they could be. would i be the same if it was me in their shoes? it made me so grateful with everything i have now.
to the friends,sisters,brothers who are less fortunate,u still have your life to be thankful for. being able to see the magnificent world He created. remember Allah won't test u with something u aren't capable of.
Narrated Al-Mughira: The Prophet used to stand (in the prayer) or pray till both his feet or legs swelled. He was asked why (he offered such an unbearable prayer) and he said, “should I not be a thankful slave.” (Sahih Bukhari – Book #21, Hadith #230)
