Read it and don’t be sad!

If you are stricken by poverty, others are chained in debt. If you don’t have shoes, others have no feet. If you feel pain now, others have been aching for years. If your son dies, other have lost many. If you have sinned, then repent. If you have committed a mistake, correct it. The doors of repentance are ever open! The fountain of forgiveness is every rich! So, don’t be sad! Let all bygones be bygones! What is predestined for you, you shall see it! Being sad will not change anything! So don’t be sad! Sadness spoils your life! Destroys your happiness! And turns it into wretchedness! So don’t be sad! Supplication is your shield! Prayer is your beacon! Prostration is your means! So don’t be sad! See how vast is the earth! How nice are the gardens and forests! How bright are the stars! All are happy, but you are sad! So, don’t be sad! You have sweet water to drink! Fresh air to breathe! Feet to walk with! You sleep safely in your bed! So, why be sad? Every cloud has a silver lining! After long nights, come the bright sun! Life will soon give you a smile! So be ready to get it! And don’t be sad! Real life is that spent in happiness! So cross out you sad days from your age! Peace of mind is the real treasure! Sorrow avails not! So don’t be sad! Sheikh `A’id Al-Qarni gives us this advice in his famous book Don’t Be Sad.

I'll give you my heart; I'll open it up, Will you listen to its small still voice? For soft and quiet my heart will speak To the one I'll call my wife. Did you hear it dear? Did you listen well? Do you understand what it said? For deep is the love that it speaks to you, Deep as the rose is red. So, take my heart and treat it well And forever in this life, Come walk with me, your hand in mine, The one I'll call my wife.
