A Story With A Moral: Why Is It That You Are Always So Happy?
One day, one friend asked another,
“Why is it that you are always so happy? You have so much energy, and you never seem to get down.”
With smiling, she said, ‘”I know the Secret!”
“What secret is that? “
To which she replied, “I’ll tell you all about it, But you have to promise to Share the Secret with others.”
“The Secret is this: I have learned there is little I can do In my life that will make me truly happy. I must depend on Allah to make me happy and to meet my needs. When a need arises in my life, I have to trust Allah to supply According to HIS riches. I have learned most of the time; I do not need half of what I think. He has never let me down.”
The questioner’s first thought was, “That’s too simple!” But upon reflecting over her own life, She recalled how she thought a bigger house Would make her happy, but it didn’t! She thought a better paying job Would make her happy, but it hadn’t. When did she realize her greatest happiness?. Sitting on the floor with her grandchildren, playing games, eating food or reading a story, A simple gift from Allah.
Moral: We cannot depend on people to make us happy. Only Allah in His infinite wisdom can do that. Trust HIM!.
Allah in His wisdom will take care of YOU! But it is not really a secret… We just have to believe it and do our duty perfectly.. Really trust Allah!
“To have God in our side does not mean sailing on a boat with no storms, it means having a boat that no storm can sink!’
