Don’t ever wish to live other people’s lives. Don’t ever wish you’re someone else. That they look better doesn’t mean they enjoy a better life. Everyone has their fair share of challenges.
Qaaruun was destined for doom and destruction. Yet, he was the richest man of his time. His people envied him, they wanted to be him, they prayed for his kind of destiny. Little did they know!
Fir’awn was extremely powerful. So much that it got into his head some day and he exploded: ‘I am your lord, the most high’. But Allah held him, destroyed him, and blessed him with eternal humiliation.
As much as we all have been faced with challenges, we also have our blessings. Give thanks to Allah in whatever situation you find yourself. For there are days you will find hardship, and there are days you will find ease!
May Allah heal our wounded hearts and wipe our secret tears.
