DON’T DEMOLISH YOUR HUT BY SEEING THE MANSION OF OTHERS.
Don’t compete for WEALTH & STATUS in the race of life, since no single soul, even most wealthy, will ever win this race .
Their house maybe larger than yours, so make shukr both have homes.
Their car may be later model than yours, so make shukr both have means of transport.
Their clothes may have designer labels, so make shukr both have clothes on your backs.
Their passport may have more stamps in it than yours, so make shukr both have a warm home to return to.
Their gourmet dishes are works of art compared to yours, so make shukr both never sleep hungry.
Their dedication to new diet, gym and exercise inspires you, so make shukr both have good health.
Their children always seem to reach milestones faster than yours, so make shukr both have children.
Their pictures of family is flawless, so make shukr both have loving families.
Their qualifications on the wall may be higher than yours, so make shukr both have intellect.
Comparisons and competition are endless, yet we will all meet the same end.
A set of white kafan (shrouding) and deep graves.
BUT IF YOU DO WANT TO HAVE COMPETION, THEN …..
They trying to understand and memorize the Qur’an, so compete with that.
They trying to perform all their Salaah with concentration and on time, so compete with that.
They trying to improve their character, so compete with that.
They trying to cultivate kindness, generosity and respect in their heart to become a better example to family and friends, so compete with that.
They trying to help others, earn halaal sustenance, donate to charitable causes, run a feeding scheme, help widows and the orphans, so compete with that.
They want to get closer to their Âllâh and beautifies the garden of their mind with Knowledge, zikr, forgivenes and PIETY so the love for ﷲ͜عَزَّوَجَــــل never stops growing in their heart….
Now that is your ultimate competition.
Let us all compete in earnest for the highest stages in Jannah…
