Contentment

19th January 2012
In order to achieve contentment in life, the Messenger pbuh taught us to “Look at those who are less fortunate than yourselves”. The minute we compare our situation with those in a better position, we lose contentment and become ungrateful. This can also cause loss of even the little that we have. This applies in wealth, health, marriage, children and most other aspects of life.

However, regarding spirituality and worship, in order to achieve progress , the Messenger pbuh taught us to “Look at those who are higher than yourselves”. This will make us aim high. When we see others fulfill all their prayers, dress so appropriately, spend time and money seeking knowledge, learn the Qur’aan and quote it etc it should encourage us to to make an effort towards achieving greater closeness to the Almighty!
