A boy said to his father:
“I saw a girL and I want to marry her. She is so beautiful and she has gorgeous eyes. The father answered his son: of course son, let’s ask for her hand in marriage.”
When the father saw the girl, he admired her beauty and he told his son: “You don’t deserve this girl, she needs someone who has experience in life and she can depend on, someone like… me.”
The boy was surprised by the attitude of his father and he told him :
“She will marry me, not you”. They started to fight and finally they decided both to go to the police station to solve their problem.
When they tell their story to the police officer, he told them:”bring the girl so we can ask her about her opinion about this. ” When the officer saw the beauty of the girl he said to the boy and his father:”you both don’t deserve her, she needs someone who has prestige like me.”
The 3 men started a fight and decided to go to the minister to solve their problem. When the minister saw the girl, he said: “She deserves to be married with a minister like me”. The prince heard about their problem and call them all to help them solve it but and when he saw the girl he said : “This girl will marry me” .
All the 5 men started to fight. Finally, the girl said “I have the solution! I will start to run and whoever catches me first, he will be my husband”. When she started to run, the boy, his father, the police officer, the minister and the prince started to run to catch her. Suddenly the 5 men fell into a deep hole.
The girl looked to them from the top and she said
“did you know who am I?”
I am the Dunya THE LIFE!!
People want to run to catch me, they are racing to have me.
By doing that, they forget their religion, until they end up in their grave and won’t have me….!
“Indeed, with hardship comes ease.” -Quran 94.
It isn’t just with hardship there will be ease and there is relief at the end.
But this verse is also means with hardship also with ease. there isn’t a day that you have a very perfect situation in a day, but on the same day you have a hard time too. ever noticed it? life is fair if you know how to see.
Keep your expectations of life positive. Strive to live with unceasing happiness. Let not your possessions possess you, nor the petty details of worldly life invade with hordes of worry the stillness of your heart.
Gain strength to rise above distraction by sipping frequently the nectar of inner peace, given you lovingly by angel hands as you grow silently toward Self-realization.— Paramhansa Yogananda (via thelittlephilosopher)
Welcome to the Dunya, where you can’t be with everyone you love, you can’t have everything you want, and everything is temporary here.
Be patient and strive for the Akhirah- you can have anything that you desire, and you can be with whoever you love, and the best part is, everything is forever :)
With pain, our life would be more meaningful. Imagine our life without pain. We would not have a different view of thinking or experience as before..
With pain, we can add values in ourselves. Without pain, we could not have thought that we can be THAT strong. SubhanAllah..
With pain, we can remember Allah. Without pain, sometimes we could forget him.. :’(
With pain, we can gain Ajr from Allah as long as we are sabar. Without pain, we would not have the chance to practice our sabr and improve our iman.
So…pain is truly a gift from Allah. Alhamdulillah for this pain & suffering.. It makes us turn to You, Ya Rabb.. :’)
