Wait patiently, but not passively.

In this life, there will come different shades of tiredness. Some people will have minds that have grown tired.

For some, it will he their bodies.

For other, it’s the heart.

And then there will be some whose soul is tired.

These people didn’t get there overnight. These are the veterans of this life. The veterans of struggle, defeat. Loss. The veterans of tears and sleepless nights.

The veterans of prayer–but not the normal kind. The broken, desperate kind. The kind of prayer that can only come from a wounded heart.

To all those who are tired today, I can only ask you to look up to find the strength.

Wait patiently, but not passively.

Keep your eyes fixed. Don’t let the deceptive motions of this life distract you. Keep your eyes on God. Keep your heart fixed. On His work, His plan. And His mercy and support throughout it all.

Wait patiently, but not passively.

Watch His work, but don’t stop your own.

There is no better worship when you’re tired, then to keep fighting on.

You may think it doesn’t matter and nothing you do can make a difference. But remember, the seeds of an Oak don’t grow in a day.

Luquman’s wisdom

Try to get it!

Prophet loquman’s advice to his son..let’s listen to it…

A016

“O my son!” (said Luqman), “If there be (but) the weight of a mustard-seed and it were (hidden) in a rock, or (anywhere) in the heavens or on earth, Allah will bring it forth: for Allah understands the finest mysteries, (and) is well-acquainted (with them).

A017

“O my son! establish regular prayer, enjoin what is just, and forbid what is wrong: and bear with patient constancy whatever betide thee; for this is firmness (of purpose) in (the conduct of) affairs.

A018

“And swell not thy cheek (for pride) at men, nor walk in insolence through the earth; for Allah loveth not any arrogant boaster.

A019

“And be moderate in thy pace, and lower thy voice; for the harshest of sounds without doubt is the braying of the ass.”

kindness and Patience

A 10 year old boy entered a coffee shop and sat at a table. He asked “How much is an ice cream sundae?” “50 cents,” replied the waitress.

The little boy pulled his hand out of his pocket and studied a number of coins in it. He asked “How much is a dish of plain ice cream?”

Some people were now waiting for a table and the waitress was a bit impatient. “35 cents,” she said brusquely.

The little boy again counted the coins. “I’ll have the plain ice cream,” he said. The waitress brought the ice cream, put the bill on the table and walked away.

The boy finished the ice cream, paid the cashier and departed. When the waitress came back, she began wiping down the table and then swallowed hard at what she saw.

There, placed neatly beside the empty dish, were 15 cents – her tip.
