Why not?

بِسْــــــــــــــــــمِ اﷲِالرَّحْمَنِ اارَّحِيم


The question here is "Why?".
Why people do not appreciate what they already have?
Why people always go with "If only i have that", "If ony I'm like that", "If only I was given that."
What is it with all the IFs. 
Why not see something that already in your hand? In your possession? 
That already with you.

Do you not see
while you are coveting something that some other people have, 
Somebody else is coveting what you already have.
You have freedom, you have peace, you have money, you have food & water, you have clothes, you have a shelter, a house, you have a vehicle, a computer, you have books... 
You have your family.
You actually have a lot.

Do you realize out there how many people are dying from not enough food? 
Do you realize how many out there does not have any facilities to make their lives simple? 
how many out there lives in the dump? how many out there walk with barefoot? 
how many out there in danger?
No family, no friends, 
No shelter, no protection.
No saviour. 

Do you realize any of this?

Then, why not appreciate? why not think for a bit? 

We are chosen to have all of this. الحمد لله
but not for your own luxury... 
why waste, when you can give what you don't want to those who need them. 
why complain, when your life is not a hardship compare to others.
Why not share, when you have too many. 

Why not appreciate?

Ya Allah, The Almighty... 

They, who does not have some benefits, are being tested. Diuji dengan kesusahan dan kesabaran.
We, who've been given some benefits, are also being tested. Kita diuji dengan segala kemudahan yang kita ada. Kemana harta-harta itu dibelanjakan? 

But then, this is what humans perceived.
We know not what Allah knows.
Oleh itu, bersyukurlah dengan apa yang kita ada,
Sesungguhnya semuanya, in truth, adalah milik Dia. 

أستغفر الله 

"And if you would count the graces of Allah,
never could you able to count them."
(Qur'an 14: 34)
