Monday Musings

As you pull the sleeves of your jersey lower.. remember that somewhere out in the world, an innocent little child has nothing to cover his body.

As you sip your hot chocolate with a sigh of comfort.. remember that somewhere out in the world, people are starving to death.

As you bury yourself deeper into your soft blankets.. remember that somewhere out in the world, people are being buried under piles of hard rubble.

As you snuggle closer to your husband whispering sweet words of love.. remember that somewhere out in the world, the heart of a widow whispers a silent prayer for her husband who still has not returned home.

As you zip up the jacket of your child.. remember that somewhere out in the world, with an aching heart, a mother closes the kafan of her child.

As you sit and warm your feet by the heater.. remember that somewhere out in the world, people are freezing to death.

As you walk around in the safety and comfort of your home.. remember that somewhere out in the world, a family has just been robbed of theirs.

And as you open your mouth to complain, momentarily forgetting how blessed you are, I ask you to stop.. don’t complain. Rather, say a word of appreciation to Allah who has blessed you.

Always remember that somewhere out in the world, there is someone worse off than you. There is someone shedding more tears than you. There is someone bleeding more blood than you. There is someone carrying a greater weight on their shoulders than you. There is someone fighting for their life as you complain about yours.

Never forget that your Rabb, Allah, is always with you.

And He knows… He knows everything.

  1. Every day when first placing my feet on the floor, I say thank you 3x or more. I know there are so many who have far less than I. This is why I also give back often, because I am so blessed. This is why I’m thankful, because I can think of others besides myself. This is why I enjoyed reading your post, lest I ever forget.
