THE PAIN THAT OBLITERATES.
The FACT that you are a MUSLIM EXCLUSIVELY puts you in a different STATUS far from other HUMAN BEINGS dead or alive. Did you FEEL BAD that you didn’t HIT that JACKPOT? And you got PISSED OFF that you LOST that golden chance to MAKE IT in life?[bctt tweet=”Did you FEEL BAD that you didn’t HIT that JACKPOT?

Have they told you how you are a FAILURE because you HAVE TRIED for YEARS and haven’t made it, and for once THOUGHT you are BEWITCHED? Did you think YOU GOT and have it because you were BETTER PLACED or more QUALIFIED than others? Did you get it COURTESY of your WIT? Well do you think he/she is the REFLECTION of SUCCESS although they bath in BOOZE yet they HAVE IT ALL? The fatal ACCIDENT CLAIMED all lives but YOU ESCAPED with minor bruises.
You succeeded with FIRST CLASS HONOURS where many FAILED. Both cases: SUCCESS or FAILURE, GOOD times or BAD to a Muslim is A LESSON to be LEARNT. When BAD TIMES come, it’s YOUR CHANCE to move up the scales of ENDURANCE. When GOOD TIMES KNOCK, it’s a CHANCE to know who and where you are, in GRATITUDE to the ALMIGHTY GOD.
حَدَّثَنِي أَبُو الطَّاهِرِ، أَخْبَرَنَا ابْنُ وَهْبٍ، أَخْبَرَنِي مَالِكُ بْنُ أَنَسٍ، وَيُونُسُ بْنُ يَزِيدَ، عَنِ ابْنِ شِهَابٍ، عَنْ عُرْوَةَ بْنِ الزُّبَيْرِ، عَنْ عَائِشَةَ، أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ” مَا مِنْ مُصِيبَةٍ يُصَابُ بِهَا الْمُسْلِمُ إِلاَّ كُفِّرَ بِهَا عَنْهُ حَتَّى الشَّوْكَةِ يُشَاكُهَا ”
‘A’isha reported: Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said: There is no trouble that comes to a believer except that it obliterates from his sins, even if it is the pricking of a thorn
