Everyone dreams of “If only” but in reality – Allah knows what is best for us. Everyone thinks that the next man is living better than him. Everyone assumes the grass is always greener on the other side.
That is not the case.
All of us believe that people out there are living perfect lives, but we forgot that nothing in the dunya is what it seems. Perfection is only in the Next World. Allah said, “And few from My servants are truly thankful.” The Prophet ﷺ did not stand up or sit down without showing gratitude to Allah. He said if you wake in the morning with food on your plate, with security in your home and with good health then you have been given the treasures of the world. How often we forget that!
Our Lord said, “If you are thankful – I shall surely increase you.”
