Nabi Muhammad S.A.W. telah bersabda,
"Sesungguhnya dalam diri manusia itu ada seketul daging. Jika daging itu baik, maka baiklah seluruh anggota badannya tetapi seandainya daging itu rosak dan kotor, maka kotor dan rosaklah seluruh anggota badannya. Daging yang dimaksudkan ini adalah hati."
(Riwayat Bukhari dan Muslim daripada Nu'man bin Basyir)
An amazing advice by the great scholar, Ibn Al-Qayyim
A friend will not (literally) share
your struggles, a loved one cannot physically take away your pain and a close
one will not stay up the night on your behalf.
So look after yourself, protect it, nurture it and don’t give life’s events
more than what they are really worth.
Be certain that when you break, no
one will heal you except you and when you are defeated no one will give you
victory except your determination. Your ability
to stand up again and carry on is your responsibility.
Do not look for your self-worth in
the eyes of people. Look for your worth
from within your conscience. If your
conscience is at peace, then you will ascend high and if you truly know
yourself, what is said about you won’t harm you.
Do not carry the worries of this
life because this is for Allah, do not carry the worries of sustenance because
it is from Allah and do not carry the anxiety for the future because it is in
the hands of Allah.
Carry one thing: How to please Allah. Because if you please Him, he pleases you,
fulfils you and enriches you. Do not
weep from a life that made your heart weep.
Just say, “Ya Allah, compensate me with good in this life and the
Sadness departs with a sajdah, happiness
comes with a sincere du’aa.
Allah does not forget what you do
nor does he forget the good you did to others and the pain you relieved them from.
Nor will he forget the eye which was about to cry but you made it laugh.
Live your life with this principle: Be good even if you don’t receive good not
because of other’s sake but because Allah loves the good doers.
