I will tell you a short story today.
Once upon a time, there lived a cell inside a human body.
The cell was very proud of its being and its individual self. It was a social being and lived in a community with other cells.
With it’s many friends and relatives it was living an eventful life, and then one day it fell ill and
died… every cell has a limited lifespan as you know
It’s dead remains was flushed out and buried on the earth and that was the first time the cell had come out of the human body and looked at it from outside
It couldn’t help but marvel at the giant structure it once belonged to. It could not help but wonder, how stupid it was to have missed this knowledge of who It really was
The cell just thought to itself
If i really had another life , i will spend it in it’s entirety to find the answer to this one question and teach it to my fellow cell beings
“We exist only if we learn to coexist”
Every other action is a one way relationship from Allah to you, except…
Allah shows you mercy , but you can’t show Him mercy
Allah forgives you, but you can’t forgive Him
Allah loves you , and you can love Him back
And interestingly, He has left you that choice
Yet we seek perfect love from people and
We are saddened when we don’t get it back
Love the One who created Love and you out of that love
Everyone in heavens and earth will by default love you
Seek Love from the right place !
( inspired from sheikh Ibn Arabi)
The secret code to make your children respect you as a parent is, to
Deal with your own parents respectfully in-front of them
Inspired by Habib
A little peace of mind, might
Cost a big piece of your wealth
Sacrifice your share
whether or not others care
You will be a real hero
While they call you zero
You will fly high
While they sigh a cry
In contentment, as Shafiee said, richness lie
Had the rich known, they’d never ever lie.
Angels or Devils
Observe your thoughts when your are alone
You will know whose company you are in
No matter how good you are with parents
There is always a level higher
I recently saw a poster where Christiano Ronaldo expressed his great love for his mother and said he will always keep his mother with him , regardless of his fame and busy travels.
For a celebrity of that stature these are beautiful words and a great expression of love and humility before his mother
Recently, I Saw a greater expression of love when I asked one of my successful friends as a passing question, “oh so your parents live with you ..?”
He immediately corrected me and said , “No I live with my parents , I wouldn’t have been here if not for them “
Even though his parents were depending on him, he gave them the credit and chose to express his dependence on them.
So there is always a level, up.
No matter how good you are with parents
There is always a level, higher
A negative thought in your mind
Is like a mouse in the house
You know well the damage just one can cause
Think of having a thousand mice at once
Use of a trap can only catch a few
But prevents not more from entering anew
Find the hole through which it creeps in
Seal it at once and earn
a piece of your mind!
They say we have 70000 thoughts a day. And for an average person more than half of it is negative and a lot of the rest is about trivial matters.
While it’s not easy to put a full stop to these, the best temporary solution is to drive away negative thoughts with opposite thoughts which im referring to as the mouse trap ( Eg: to pray for or praise the one whome you are jealous against).
The real solution will be to find the source of these negative thoughts and solve it from the roots which is referred to as sealing the hole in the poem (Eg: To settle a long kept partnership or relationship issue rather than to live with it while it occupies half the space of your mind)

Be like the moon, mild
Not like the Sun , wild
Like the moon , veil
Not like the sun, reveal
Be like the moon, artistic
Not like the sun, stagnant
Be like the moon, compassionate
Not like the sun, investigative
Yet, when the line is crossed
Be gone like the moon,
And like the Sun, Rise.
