Every Muslim has the deep yearning in his heart to visit the blessed lands of Makkah Mukarramah and Madeenah Munawwarah. As Muslims, our attachment to these blessed places is so great that the mere mention of the Ka’bah Shareef and the Rowdhah Mubaarak of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) is sufficient to bring tears of love to our eyes.

The sanctity and blessing of these places can be gauged by the fact that a person’s good deeds in these places are multiplied by up to a thousand times or more! On the same token, we should remember that the greater the sanctity of a place, the better our behaviour should be. If our good deeds are multiplied in these blessed places, then our sins and evil deeds are similarly multiplied. The reason for this is obvious – a person has chosen the holiest of places to violate the commands of Allah Ta‘ala.

Take a Break

The Deen of Islam is complete and perfect. Hence Islam recognizes and caters for all the needs of a human being by showing him the Islamic way of attending to and fulfilling these various needs. Eating is a basic human need. Thus Islam not only allows us to eat but also gives us guidelines and teaches us the Islamic way of eating.

Among our basic, human needs is the need to occasionally ‘take a break’. Islam is not a ‘dry’ Deen and thus allows us to take a break when needed. However, just as we adhere to the guidelines laid down by Deen when fulfilling our other needs, we should also adhere to the laws and injunctions of Deen when fulfilling this need and ensure that it is done in a manner that is approved of in Islam.

Two people were presented with a 250ml glass containing 125ml of water. When asked to describe the glass, the first person said, “It’s half full.” The second person, on the other hand, described it saying, “It’s half empty.”

While both descriptions may technically be correct, the different descriptions serve to highlight the stark contrast between the mindset of the two people. The first person has a positive mindset, while the second has a negative mindset. A person’s mindset is such an important element that if the correct mindset is created, literally half the battle against depression will be won.

In future, if we are ever beset by negative thoughts, turn our minds and hearts to the infinite favours of Allah Ta‘ala.

We face, on a daily basis, situations which test our tolerance and patience. Unfortunately, we sometimes fail the test and succumb to our temper, behaving in such a manner that we cause nothing but remorse and regret for ourselves.  

Thus, as of today, when faced with any test, simply remember the word ‘CAB’.

‘C’ stands for the ‘Command’ of Allah Ta‘ala. Remember that this test was decreed to happen and there was no way that we could have escaped it. We cannot choose our tests, but we can choose the manner in which we face these tests and challenges.
