I am thankful that I have the chance to be under the wings of millions of angels again on Sunday. I can never be bored with the routine on my Dhuha class : recitation of Surah Al-Waqiah, Selawat and receiving pearls from my beloved Ustaz.
Pearls that I received today….
We tend to forget to count our blessings and be thankful of what we have when we always look at the situation above us.
Here’s an example :
We walk. We see someone rides a bicycle. We want to get a bicycle.
We ride a bicycle. We see someone rides a motorcycle. We want a motorcycle.
We ride a motorcycle. We see someone drives a car. We want to have a car.
We drive a car. We see someone drives a bigger luxury car. We want that too.
And the list goes on and on and on.
Why not look at things the other way round, try to look down.
Be thankful that you have a car to travel, others may only have a motorcycle.
Be thankful that you have a motorcycle to ride on, others may only have a bicycle.
Be thankful that you have a bicycle to ride, others may have to walk.
Be thankful that you can walk, others may have to be wheel-chaired.
Be thankful that you have to be wheel-chaired, others may be bed-ridden.
You see the point? Think about it.
