A Nice Reminder

My husband had emailed me this yesterday (yes my husband and I email each other and we live in the same house lol) and I thought I'd share it with you

Upon you is the Taqwâ of Allâh if you are heedless..... He brings you provisions from where you do not know

So how do you fear poverty and Allâh is the Provider..... And he has provided for the birds and the fish in the sea

So whoever thinks that the provisions come with power..... Then the sparrow does not eat anything with the eagle

Then decrease from the Dunya for you do not know..... If the night comes to you will you stay until the sunrise

For how man healthy ones died without any disease..... And how many sick ones lived for a long age

So how many of the young men become and grow up laughing..... And he was sufficed with the unknown from harm and he did not know

So who has lived one thousand or two thousand..... then no doubt one day he'll walk to the Grave

"Whoever thinks about this worldly life and the hereafter would know that he will never gain either of them except by hardship. He should bear this hardship in order to gain the best and more lasting of them" -Ibnul Qayyim Al-Jawziyyah, from the book Al-Fawaa'id
