Don't Be Sad and Think About Delights

Don't Be Sad and Think About Delights

Wealth, appearance, children, house, and talents — you must be content with your share in these things:
{So hold that which I have given you and be of the grateful.}
(Qur’an 7:144)

In fact, every Prophet was at one time or another a shepherd. Dawood (David) was a blacksmith, Zakariah (Zacharia) a carpenter, and Idrees (Enoch) a tailor; and yet they were the best of mankind.
Therefore your value is in your abilities, good deeds, manners, and contributions to society. Do not feel grief, then, over that which has passed you by in life in terms of good looks, wealth, or family; and be content with what Allah has allotted for you.
{It is We Who portion out between them their livelihood in this World.} (Qur’an 43. 32)

Remind yourself of Paradise, which is as wide as are the Heavens and the Earth.
O’ you who live in poverty, or are afflicted with calamity, work righteous deeds so that you shall live in Allah’s Paradise.
{Peace be upon you, because you persevered in patience! Excellent indeed is the final home!} (Qur’an 13: 24)
“Verily you are returning towards your Lord – with your deeds and actions [good or bad], a sure returning…” (Chapter 84, Verse 6)

Concentrate on the present, living each day as it comes.
Abu Hurayrah said that the Messenger of Allah said:

قَالَ سُلَيْمَانُ بْنُ دَاوُدَ عَلَيْهِمَا السَّلَامُ: لَأَطُوفَنَّ اللَّيْلَةَ عَلَى سَبْعِينَ امْرَأَةً وَفِي رِوَايَةٍ: تِسْعِينَ امْرَأَةً، وَفِي رِوَايَةٍ: مِائَةِ امْرَأَةٍ تَلِدُ كُلُّ امْرَأَةٍ مِنْهُنَّ غُلَامًا يُقَاتِلُ فِي سَبِيلِ اللهِ، فَقِيلَ لَهُ وَفِي رِوَايَةٍ قَالَ لَهُ الْمَلَكُ: قُلْ إِنْ شَاءَ اللهُ، فَلَمْ يَقُلْ، فَطَافَ بِهِنَّ فَلَمْ تَلِدْ مِنْهُنَّ إِلَّا امْرَأَةٌ وَاحِدَةٌ نِصْفَ إِنْسَانٍ، فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللهِصلى الله عليه وسلّم: وَالَّذِي نَفْسِي بِيَدِهِ، لَوْ قَالَ إِنْ شَاءَ اللهُ لَمْ يَحْنَثْ، وَكَانَ دَرَكًا لِحَاجَتِه»وَفِي رِوَايَةٍ: «وَلَقَاتَلُوا فِي سَبِيلِ اللهِ فُرْسَانًا أَجْمَعُون»

“No calamity befalls the earth or in yourselves but is inscribed in the Book of Decrees – before we bring it into existence” (Chapter 57, Verse 22)
“Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest” (Chapter 13, Verse 28)

Allah (swt) promises never to burden us with more than we can bear, and

“Verily, with hardship, there is relief” (Chapter 94, Verse 6)

Questioning About Delights

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The first question that a person will be asked, about the delights (of this world), on the Day of Resurrection will be, ‘Did We not give you good health? Did We not give you cool water to drink?’” [Tirmidhi]

Some people do not realize the great blessings that Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) has bestowed on them. They do not appreciate the blessing of having water to drink and food to eat, or the blessings that Allah has bestowed upon them in their homes, spouses and children. They think that luxury means having palaces, gardens and fancy means of transportation.

A man asked Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-Aas, “Are we not among the poor Muhaajireen?” Abdullah said to him, “Don’t you have a wife to whom you return at the end of the day?” He said, “Yes.” Abdullah asked, “Don’t you have a house to live in?” He said, “Yes.” Abdullah said, “Then you are one of the rich.” He said, “I have a servant.” Abdullah said, “Then you are one of the kings.” [Muslim]

How many of us are rich, and how many of us are kings, yet we remain thankless to Allah?

“Then, on that Day, you shall be questioned about the delights (you enjoyed in this world).” [Quran: Surah Takathur, Ayat 8]
