La Tahzan (Don’t be sad)

Idea started from a single SMS of consolation and title suggested by brother Omer.


Alhamdulillah for the roof over my head,
Alhamdulillah for this slice of bread,
When life seems hard and moments are tense
And your past is a story you’d rather forget
Look around you at the things that you own
All the blessings with which you’ve grown.
But don’t forget those around you
Who, unlike you, have so few.
Hold the hand of those who are frail,
Look into their eyes and feel their pain,
Doing so makes you realise its true,
There are many hurting more than you.
So be grateful for all that you have
And snub Satan who makes you sad.

    alhamdulillah, i once thought about the story of prophet Adam alaihissalam, our ancestor. there are jinn satan and human satan, maybe human satan is the one mentioned in — Al Quran surah Al Maa idah ayah 90 : “O you who believe! Intoxicants (all kinds of alcoholic drinks), gambling, Al Ansâb , and Al Azlâm (arrows for seeking luck or decision) are an abomination of Shaitân’s (Satan) handiwork. So avoid (strictly all) that (abomination) in order that you may be successful.” another translation : “O you who have believed, indeed, intoxicants, gambling, [sacrificing on] stone alters [to other than God], and divining arrows are but defilement from the work of Satan, so avoid it that you may be successful.”

  2. masha’Allah nicely done! It would’ve been even better if the title was “La Tahzan” instead of Don’t be Sad!
