We belong to Allah and to Him will we return

This statement helps us on two levels. First it reminds us that whatever goodness is coming to us, is not owned by us. We feel angry or hurt when we have a right over some thing If it was my turn in the que and someone took my turn, I will feel angry but if it wasn’t my turn in the first place I will not feel angry.


Don’t fear Musibah (part 2)

But look at the language of Allah! Allah congratulates those who made sabr. We make sabr when something unpleasant happens. Like a disaster or a calamity struck, or something didn’t go according to the plan. We do not have to make sabr or be patient when the going is good.
