Asalamu-alaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakatuhu...
*whispers* wanna hear a secret... read on inshallah =)
One day, one friend asked another, "How is it that you are always so happy?
You have so much energy and you never seem to get down." With his eyes smiling, he said, "I know the Secret!" "What secret is that?" To which he replied, "I'll tell you all about it, but you have to promise to share
the secret with others."
"The secret is this:
I have learned there is little I can do in my life that will make me truly happy.
I must depend on Allah to make me happy and to meet my needs.
When a need arises in my life, I have to trust Allah to supply according to HIS riches.
I have learned most of the time I don't need half of what I think I do. He has never let me down.
Since I learned that 'Secret', I am happy."
The questioner's first thought was, "That's too simple!"
But upon reflecting over his own life he recalled how he thought a bigger house would make him happy, but it didn't! He thought a better paying job would make him happy, but it hadn't. When did he realize his greatest happiness? Sitting on the floor with his grandchildren, playing games, eating pizza or reading a story, a simple gift from Allah.. Now you know it too! We can't depend on people to make us happy. Only Allah in His infinite wisdom can do that. Trust HIM!
