In my own perspective about Life, there are several things that determine your personal life situation; FIRST, what you have in your heart whether belief, goal, love, contemplation or thought is what makes you win or lose! Let me put it simple into you in an Islamic way, we, as Muslims, think about how we can make our creator and sustainer pleased, simply that is a goal! We strongly believe that this is the world of ALLAH, and Only He, can control and handle what is going on, simply that is a belief! We love our prophet (s) and more
simply that is a Love! SECONDly, the people around you are the most possible factor of shaping your current and past achievements as well as your future end, if you don?t leave them. I say that because I have seen people who were not originally horrendous but happened so simply because of the people in their lives, and in the other side, weak people having low level of living developed into heroes because of the genuine people in their lives!
Let me uncover and show you, my brothers and sisters, what I have deeply felt from my heart!
Alhamdulillah! For everything he gave us, for the great worth he made it easy for us becoming Muslims, for the health and peace, for the correct way of thinking about life decisions, for the beloved people in our lives (Parents, Family members, Relatives, Friends and those we Love each other) Alhamdulillah for Everything!
For me, I always look around, see what is going on and then realize what ALLAH (SWT) has given to us is something which we can never even imagine how extraordinary it is if we pray and ask ALLAH to increase it for us. The people in my life whom I believe they took critical part of my past progress and I assure they would add value to my career development in the long run, are my parents. Mother and father are simply the first role model of the person, they are the ones who taught you how to speak, how to read and write and how to express your feelings among the people, when you were a baby, they taught you to cry whenever you need help, they taught you to smile in front of guests, they taught you to keep silent when great people are around, and to be merciful the younger than you. What a discipline!
They protected us from harmful and dreadful things, we made them furious but they showed us their extreme patience for us, we cried and made them frightened when they were asleep but they showed their boundless kindness for us. Going to school with friends is what we all did, how could you forget the small money that your father or mother pressed on into your pocket in every morning before going out from the gate and the sweet things you used to spend with it!
Despite our parents, there are brothers, sisters, relatives and friends that show us respect and give us a hand to deal with life events, they also help us to acquire a mood of happiness sealed with enjoyment. Friends, those who are real and reliable in the time of a difficulty, not fake and falsehood colleagues are a kind of a blessing and a fraction of a pleasure according to everyone who value the merit and miracles of true friendship.
Living with your people in a peaceful environment and having enough food to eat in a healthy situation is what our Prophet (PBUH) pointed it as the whole world bordered for you.
This short writing you are reading now is at least the reply to the feelings that our parents created in our lives, they raise up as a generation in to the best way that a man could ever seek, they truly deserve our love, and then I remember that only love is not enough! Ask yourself where are the people who taught you to dress like this? Who taught you speaking with good words? Are they staying around you with little respect? Subhanallah! Or maybe you don?t aware about their whole situation? and then remember that some of them are buried beneath the ground simply like my late father who died a couple of weeks ago, surely they need our prayers more than anything, they are in need for our support more than they were in need when they were smiling around you before. I emotionally and silently cry sometimes just only because of the remembrance and long lasting memories of their footprints they left from the hearts then erase the tears and say Alhamdulillah for everything!
Maybe you lost your parents but not both, that is a chance! Cherish that One, have a pleasure with him/her, chat with him/her more than you do with your colleagues, Act like friends and recognize that becoming a friend with your parents is stage that only very few people can reach. Could it ever happen that your mother or father told you about their wedding ceremony? Could it ever come in to possible that you made your parents so proud and smiling simply because of you? Alhamdulillah for Everything!
Some of our parents and let me say a large amount of them do not know how to read and write even their own name, that is not their fault! it was the situation of the country and the culture of our early people at that time, but imagine how they value education, How they respect teachers and academic staff, they send you into an Islamic school when you were young, and later to a secular school, the point is; do not judge parents by their level of education, surely they can understand everything about you, even they can understand the lectures they gave in the campus of your college simply because I conducted that experiment! Share with them everything you meet in your daily life experience, they just only wish to make sure their hope to see you in the stage of academic leaders in the future. Alhamdulillah for Everything!
The best thing in life to spend your time is Cibadah, and Cibadah is not only Praying! Taking happy moments with your parents is Cibadah also; the next obligation to the fulfillment of ALLAH?s orders is for the gladness of the parents. You should have to make a special time for your parents, to teach them, to tell them about your life proceedings, to ask for advices, and to tell them that you Love them so much!
Finally, brothers and sisters let me say Alhamdulillah for everything, if we try to count the blessings of our lord upon us, we would only get tired! Parents are inclussive and are miraculously an excellent people from ALLAH! Alhamdulillah for everything!
