Anyone who complains about the test life has brought
Has done themselves two wrongs . . .
They've lost the lesson the test has taught
And they've lost the blessings meant to be sought
There's no other opportunity in life to grow the way you grow through a test
It's hard road is designed to make us our best
There's this incredible beauty behind it
Such as, our capacity is known to Him Alone, although many times we choose to deny it
Yet in it's midst we're humbled to realize
Where our priorities truly lie
Sometimes it takes hypocrisy within to break us, before it is able to make us
Other times we can clearly recognize the signs and rise against the dust
Often when the wind blows over and we catch a glimpse of our reflection
We find ourselves staring back at a different state of creation
If we understood patience is enjoining good regardless of the emotions attached
Then we're staring back at a polished diamond, cleansed, without any scratch
If we choose to take what appears the easy way out, where whispers and emotions dictate our road
Then we're staring back at a diamond discolouring, losing it's clarity; it's value no longer does it hold
At the end of the day, if you choose to to contemplate you'll realize where the benefit lies
And you'll force yourself to submit and sincerely try
..... There's good in all, just keep your cup half full
At some point in life every being will fall
The point is to turn back to Him, Who Controls all
He Knows despite what others say
He's got you covered - make today, a new day!

Imaam at-Tabaraanee reported in „ad-Du`aa·‟ (3/1425/1339) from a hadeeth of Aboo Hurairah -
radiyallaahu 'anhu - who said:

"From his  supplications was:

[O Allaah! I seek Your refuge from having an evil neighbour, and from having a wife who turns my hair grey before the time of grey hair, and from having a child who is a lord over me, and from wealth which becomes a punishment upon me, and from having a close friend who is deceitful: whose eye watches me and his heart is mindful of me: such that if he sees something good from me he conceals it, and if he sees something evil from me he broadcasts it.]"

[Shaikh al-Albaanee -rahimahullaah- said: "This chain of narration is good..."]


[Translated by Aboo Talhah Daawood ibn Ronald Burbank]

Quote of the week:

"In spite of the difficulities that "may" occur in the path of loving one another, love does not hurt". "Love is not painful, deceitful or manipulative"!
