Contentment with little is the virtue of a believer
Muhammad Mizanur Rahman//
Never feel sorry for others. It will spoil your peace of mind. Rather be content with what Allah has given you.
In the Holy Qur’an, Allah Almighty says, “Give thanks for My blessings, then I will certainly increase My blessings for you.” (Surah Ibrahim, verse-7).
Live yourself honestly. Earn Halal. Seek Allah’s mercy and blessings in earning income. If you have any deficiency, seek Allah’s help. Submit all your grievances to Allah.
If you can ask nicely, it will be fulfilled in a way you won’t even realize. Maybe he will help you with some hidden money. Or your lack will be met from a source you could not have imagined. And if you cannot earn the gratitude of the owner, the great Lord will not be pleased with you.
In the Holy Qur’an, Allah Ta’ala says, ‘…if you deny these blessings of Mine, then know that My punishment is very severe.’ (Surah Ibrahim, verse-7).
There is no end to trials in the life of a believer. One is tested with wealth. Again by taking wealth away from someone. Put someone in power. By taking away power from someone again. For this reason, never get depressed if you don’t get what you expect. Don’t be disappointed. Always practice patience. In the Holy Qur’an, Allah Ta’ala says, “Surely I will test you with fear, hunger, and loss of life and crops.” And give glad tidings of Paradise to those who are patient.’ (Surah Al-Baqarah, verse-155). When a believer does not lose patience in danger, but thanks Allah for being happy, his honor is increased in both situations.
If you want to gain the welfare of the world, make an effort. Proceed in the right direction. Don’t try to grow up unfairly. Do not choose a path that Allah does not want to see you on. You will have nothing in this world.
But your actions will not leave you. All the pros and cons will be explained to you. You are no longer like ten ordinary animals. You will not perish with death. You must stand before Allah for reckoning. In the Holy Qur’an, Allah Ta’ala says, “He who fears to stand before his Lord and restrains himself from temptation, Paradise will be his abode.” (Surah Najiat, verse-40).
