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.

Did you ever battle to find a place in the kitchen cupboards for the latest dinner set purchase, or the new Tupperwares?

Did you ever stand before your wardrobe before a function and find yourself at a loss regarding what to wear, simply because your collection was so extensive?

If your answer to any of the above is ‘yes’, then you need to stop and ask yourself the following questions:

“Is the wealth which I possess truly MINE or is it merely a trust from Allah Ta‘ala regarding which I will be held accountable?”

“Did I buy these items because I needed them or did I buy them on impulse or to keep up with the latest fashion and trend?”

“Could I have done without these items? If yes, then what stopped me from rather giving some of the money in sadaqah to the poor?”

Remember! Islam allows us to use and enjoy the bounties of this world. However, Islam does not allow extravagance and waste. If we use the bounties of Allah Ta‘ala without being wasteful and express gratitude to Him, these same bounties will both give us satisfaction and enjoyment and also become a means of us earning reward.
