“Regret is not in my dictionary, but forgiveness is all over it,because Allah(Swt) said, ‘Have mercy on mankind,and I will have mercy on you’ .”
I do this!
Somali : Hadday degdegsiinyo door dhalaan, kaadsiinyana kiish lacagay dhalaan
Translation : Haste can give birth to a bit of money ( a small benefit), patience to a bag of it.
Patience , exactly what I need and lack ninety percent of my decision making moments. I tend to be very strong about my stand which usually results in me making hasty decisions .Ass-uming for the most part , my lines are already drawn before there is even a problem.
I feel like I am always rushing , on the go. All the time. Why?. I don’t have any children.
Libaax nin aan aqoon baa lax ka rida : Only he who does not know a lion ( and therefore is not afraid of him) can take a sheep from him ( i.e. sometimes ignorance can be useful).
Sura Ad-Duha contains all that is the hardest yet the most crucial of things to remember:
1. Allah has neither forsaken nor forgotten you
2. The hereafter is better for you than this life
3.Allah will give you all that it is that you want/desire thats good
4.Allah found you unaware of his deen and guided you
5.You were poor and he gave you self-sufficiency/contentment
6. In that case don’t treat the poor/beggars with oppression/revulsion
7. And report the favor of your Lord
“O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor: for Allah can best protect both. Follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest you swerve, and if you distort justice or decline to do justice, verily Allah is well-acquainted with all that you do.”
(The Holy Quran, Chapter 4. “The Women”, verse 135).
