Self-reflection question.

Are you a simple person?

Let’s learn a little more..

 

Ayat Al Qur’an - Surah Al Talaq (The Divorce) - (63:3) 

وَيَرْزُقْهُ مِنْ حَيْثُ لَا يَحْتَسِبُ وَمَن يَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى ٱللَّهِ فَهُوَ حَسْبُهُۥٓ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ بَٰلِغُ أَمْرِهِۦ قَدْ جَعَلَ ٱللَّهُ لِكُلِّ شَىْءٍ قَدْرًا

And He will provide for him from (sources) he never could imagine. And whosoever puts his trust in Allah, then He will suffice him. Verily, Allah will accomplish his purpose. Indeed Allah has set a measure for all things.

1 Hadith

‘Ubaydullah ibn Mihsan reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Whoever among you wakes up secure in his property, healthy in his body, and he has his food for the day, it is as if he were given the entire world.”

عَنْ عُبَيْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ مِحْصَنٍ الْخَطْمِيِّ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ مَنْ أَصْبَحَ مِنْكُمْ آمِنًا فِي سِرْبِهِ مُعَافًى فِي جَسَدِهِ عِنْدَهُ قُوتُ يَوْمِهِ فَكَأَنَّمَا حِيزَتْ لَهُ الدُّنْيَا

Reflection Point

As human beings, we tend to overcomplicate the simple things in life…

In a world where we see destruction and chaos..

Sickness and disease..

Starvation and drought..

It can cause one to become full of anxiety and fear.

In the beautiful hadith previously mentioned.

There is a lesson for all of us.. 

To appreciate and be grateful for that which we have been given.

To the point where, if a person has a roof over their head… 

Good health 

And food for the day.

It is as if the whole world has been gathered in front of them.

So know that it is the simple things in life that bring joy and contentment. 

The basic necessities of life that humble a person.

If someone offered you all the gold in the world, to take your hearing and eyesight away?

Would you give it up?

Reflect.

So know...

That even if you don’t have much, you may have a lot.

And even if you have a lot, you may not really have much.

Be grateful to Allah, for everything you have.

And if you are tested with what you have..

Be patient.

And if Allah increases what you have.

Be thankful to him alone.

This week, we have designed a simple and well-crafted infographic for you to share with everyone you know. It's been designed as an encouragement for you to remain thankful for the blessings you have been given.

An encouragement to remain patient upon the difficulties you face and a realization to not over complicate your life.

Your task for this week is to look around and identify those simple things that you may overlook or disregard, but in reality, bring contentment and joy to your life. 

Reflect & understand it's true value insha Allah. 

Remember...

"Whoever guides someone to goodness will have a reward like one who did it."
