=) In knowledge Lies Mercy

One day, Ibn Umar (ra) goes to the market after the death of the Prophet (saws) and as he is in the market, he chooses the things he wanted to buy some vegetables, some fruits, and he puts it in his bag and he puts his hands in his pocket and he is about to take the money out to give it to the guy and it turns out that somebody has stolen the money of ibn Umar (ra).

So he looked to the guy selling the vegetables and said I’m sorry my money has been stolen. So the man calls upon the people in the market,

“O people of the market, ibn Umar has been robbed, So call upon Allah to destroy the person who took ibn Umar’s money"

So everyone raises his hand and makes a du`aa, O Allah curse the person who took ibn Umar’s wealth, etc. And then Ibn Umar raises his hands and what does he say and everyone is listening, what is Ibn Umar going to pray for. So he raises his hands and says,

“Oh Allah, if the person took it and he was in need, then bless this money for him. Oh Allah, if he is a true thief, then make this one the last of his sins."

no grudge nor hatred
pure husnuzan *weeps*

man of God never wasted! everything in their life is a gift

once said life is not a bed of roses. full of challenges and tough times. I TRUST!

but there's something that caught my attention even more.

"man of God never wasted! everything in their life is a gift"

how beautiful it is, for a mankind to appreciate both the positive and negative things in their life as a full reward from God.

i'm the type of person who always looking at a side, fail to compare and analyse between both. not only me i guess, everyone is!

perhaps things should change now kan?

spastic: once i've wished that this world would be a perfect one...

where people free from suffering and pain ... and all that is left are love and faith ...

but its the nature of the world not to be called a paradise ...

Its just a small portion from already less than minute of the entire creation that we are going through ...

Perhaps they know and believe firmly in their pure heart that this life is too short to be wasted with anger hatred or even any wasteful act ... and the only thing that matter to them is to please Allah SWT ...

I admire those who were given patience and sincerity in life and to always husnuzan in life ... and i pray you and me will be among those who will bestowed or perhaps be given a sligethest sip of wisdom and hidayah that the righteous are bestowed

amin! thanx for the respond, you got me thinking and further appreciate this life that have been given to me =)
