Be Grateful

I've not posted anything for so long.
I hope this post will be beneficial for myself and others, insyaAllah.

SPM results! :O

I remember last year, I took my driving test on the same day when SPM results was announced. I hoped that I will pass my test, and have enough time to speed drive to Melaka, be with my friends, and get 11A+.

So, what really happened was,
I failed my test at around 12 pm.
I reached Melaka around 3.30 pm.
I didn't get 11A+ but well, it was good enough.
None of my batchmates was there when I arrived.
Nothing that I wanted, happened.

You can't always get what you want,
You get what you need.
Have faith, believe, that
He knows what is best for you.

We find it hard to see a silver lining,
We thought that what we wanted was the best He could give,
We must remember that often,
What we want,
Might not be good for us.

"...But perhaps you hate a thing
and it is good for you,
And perhaps you love a thing
and it is bad for you,
And Allah knows, while you know not."
"...Boleh jadi kamu tidak menyenangi sesuatu
padahal itu baik bagimu,
Dan boleh jadi kamu menyukai sesuatu
padahal itu tidak baik bagimu,
Allah Mengetahui, sedang kamu tidak mengetahui."
Al Baqarah : 216

Because only by acceptance and gratefulness,
that we are able to move forward,
Allah will always help those who are grateful and who believe.

"What will Allah do with your punishment,
if you are grateful and believe?
And ever Allah Appreciative and Knowing."
"Allah tidak akan menyiksamu,
jika kamu bersyukur dan beriman.
Dan Allah Maha Mensyukuri, Maha Mengetahui.
An Nisa' : 147

That true happiness awaits those who believe.

"Allah extends provision for whom He wills and restricts it.
And they rejoice in the wordly life,
while the worldly life is not,
compared to the Hereafter,
except brief enjoyment"
"Allah melapangkan rezeki bagi sesiapa yang Dia Kehendaki,
dan Membatasi (bagi sesiapa yang Dia Kehendaki).
Mereka bergembira dengan kehidupan dunia,
padahal dunia hanyalah kesenangan yang sedikit,
dibanding kehidupan akhirat."
Ar Ra'd : 26

And if you ever feel demoralized or sad,
Remember the purpose of life,
And you'll realize,
That whatever problem you are having is very small.
On top of it all,
Remember Allah.

"...Unquestionably, by the remembrance of Allah,
hearts are assured. "
"...Ingatlah, hanya dengan mengingati Allah,
hati menjadi tenteram."
Ar Ra'd : 28

Whatever happened, happens, or will happen, in your life,
Good or bad, BE GRATEFUL.
There's a reason why Allah made it that way.
Search for that reason.

Because as long as you seek for truth,
As long as you have faith in Allah,
As long as you remember Him,
True happiness awaits you.
And the wait itself, is true happiness.

How many mornings have you seen since you were born?
And if you can read this, you've just seen another morning!
Alhamdulillah! :D

Allah has given us so much,
How much have we done?
