Are You feeling sad ?
Are You Feeling Sad ?I found Solace in “Alhumdulillah”.Try it !
I was running the blind race of life -chasing money,power and position.I wanted to be the best at everything .I ran and ran and ran but whenever I raised my head to congratulate myself for my achievement ,I felt far behind. Knowing far well that there is no end to my race,I kept on running. The glamour of life took me to a world where I always felt unfortunate and sad.I am a muslim but satan made me feel upset with whatever I had.I measured the happiness with the glamorous social profile of my friends and collegues.I looked at my Collegues who got a better pay for their work and at my friends who enjoyed vacations after vacations. I felt deprieved of the Sweetness of life.(Naujobillah!)
This is not my own story but the Satanic thought that comes to each one of us and grasp our throat(probably not only mine!) and we really become unfortunate to acknowledge the immense blessing Allah has bestowed us with.
Today I would like to take my time to make astaghfar for my every act of Impatience and Unthankfullness.
I seek refuge in Allah from the evil of the world and of my own nafs.Oh Allah!I have been so Unthankful when I Complained about my deterioting health.There are number of People who can’t even stand,see,hear,talk,feel or understand.You made me so beautiful but I kept comparing the colour of my skin,hair and composure.You gave me the ability to earn while there are thousand crippled,unqualified people around the world who are forced to beg for their living.Every Morning I see the beauty of your creation,I feel the warmth of my close friend and relatives,stand perfectly in front of the mirror every morning ,get a perfect meal to feed my belly but the human in me wants more.
Today,when I walked the lane of the hospital,my eyes were overwhelmed with the suffering of others .There are mothers who are giving each and every second of their life to their abnormal/crippled children.There are people who are paralysed and can do nothing by themselves.There are people loosing there legs,hands,eyes.There are people dying….
There are People dying from unexpected bombings,accidents,disease,tortures,sudden deaths.But still satan makes us feel unfortunate.Oh Allah protect me from this Satan which makes the saying of my “Alhumdulillah” void by making me feel unfortunate at times.
Everything belongs to you .Accept me as your humble servant and make me thankful and Patient.Include me among the ones with whom you are pleased and do not make me among the ones who earn your worth.I can never be unfortunate because I am a Muslim.I have the biggest fortune of your pleasure because I am a Muslim. and anything I desire from you is to increase me in taqwa.
Oh Allah!forgive me and forgive my parents and make us righteous.There is One dua which is coming in my heavy heart and in my wet eyes
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي ظَلَمْتُ نَفْسِي ظُلْماً كَثِيراً، وَلَا يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ، فَاغْفِرْ لِي مَغْفِرَةً مِنْ عِنْدِكَ وَارْحَمْنِي إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ الْغَفُورُ الرَّحِيمُ
Allahumma inni zalamtu nafsi zulman kathiran wala yaghfirudh-dhunuba illa anta, Faghfirli maghfiratan min indika war-hamni, innaka antalGhafur-Rahim
O Allah, I have greatly wronged myself and
no one forgives sins but You.
So, grant me forgiveness and have mercy on me.
Surely, you are Forgiving, Merciful
This Du’a was taught by our Prophet(PBUH) Bukhari :: Book 8 :: Volume 75 :: Hadith 338
Please take a moment to read the above dua and please seek forgiveness for yourself and your parents and ask Allah to forgive my sins too and make me a muslim who is productive to the Ummah.Ameen.
P.S :Islam Hashtag loves its readers and You all are always in our duas.May Allah bless you all ,always.
