This was actually only meant as a little reminder to myself, as a wrote this, but I felt I should share it with you, and hopefully all of you who are reading this, will have something to ponder over. Inshallah. Please feel free to comment if they’re is anything you want to address. Jazak’Allah Khair.
I get angry, afraid and all upset. Why? Because of a little thing that really didn’t happened. My brother lost a ball, and it was rolling in the middle of the street, and so he ran, grabbed it, and ran back again to the sidewalk. All safely. So what did really upset me? The fact that a car was, probably 50 meters away from him? A distant long enough. But what if it wasn’t? What if it only was a matter of 10. Or even 5? What would have happened?
Alhamdulillah. It was not his time. Allah swt. saved me, him and many other people from a difficult hardship and a calamity like this. But think of it. And I believe that us people. We take events way to lightly in our lives. We hear about the awful stuff that is happening in countries and with people. In places we’ve never seen, and probably won’t, inshallah. Children are being used as defense in the war that is going on right now, in Syria. Thousands are dying. In a matter of weeks. We hear this stuff, “feel they’re pain” and then move on with our lives, like nothing really happened at all! Think of this a little bit please. Really. If this was you. Or rather a human being close and dear to you. Your parent, sister, brother or best friend. Wouldn’t you’re react be so much different of that which your react is right now? Today? Yes. Of course it would. My reaction was even greater when it came to the fact that my brother. My brother ran to the street and ran back again. All safely. Nothing really did happen. No physical injury or anything of that matter. So when your brothers and sisters in Islam are going through a hardship like this. They’re still your siblings. In deen. So please, start acting like they are your sisters and brothers. Do what you can to help them. Give them zakat, pray and make du’a for them, think of them, and inshallah, may Allah reward you well. Amin.
