Ahhhh from long time this topic is revolving round in my head. Alhumdullilah, finally I got time to pen it down.
Thinking about greenery, peace always fascinates us and if you live in a city then you will be well aware about this situation.
Alhumdullilah I’m thankful to Allah that I have got my native place in some interiors of our country. In short it’s a small village where I get escape from all these crepy noises of city life.
It’s a place where I get to know that what exactly in hot summer, cool breeze from beautiful trees means. How it’s much more satisfactory than our AC rooms.
Even though area of my village home is 3 times than our city houses but we do enjoy sleeping at our open terrace in hot summer days and enjoy sipping tea there in winter season on sunny days.When you stand beneath the open sky watching those little star and getting lights only from moon, your heart really say “Off course I cant deny blessings of my lord”. It’s a place where “twinkle twinkle little star” rhyme actually feels like taking the real image.
My village is a place where I get to touch real water, rushing out from hand pumps. Yes, still we have it and I’m glad that we have that natural source. It’s amazing to see that how in winter hot water comes out from it and same gets opposite in summer season. Allahu Akbar.
It’s a place where I get indulge into a proper routine. Morning sun rays open our eyes and in night moon light let us sleep calmly.
Going to village feels like enjoying a family time, giving a spa treatment to your inner soul. In my teenage period I never enjoyed my village this much but now I really understand that how important a village means, culture means and family life means. I’m thankful to Allah that he has gifted me a place with no “Man made luxury” but with “Natural luxury”.

Allah is full of mercy. No doubt about it. But still with every dhikr he has mentioned what reward we may get. Subhan Allah. Even it would have been enough for a beleiver to just know the dhikr he is bound to do. But my Allah showed him the fruits as well. Allahumdulilah. Everytime I recite any dua, dhikr or do any ibadah these rewards crosses my mind. I keep on telling same to my daughter- the beautiful jannah, the fairies, the fruits, the flying horse etc etc.
Recently on this topic there happened an argument between me and my hubby. As he was in favour that nothing should be done with the intention of getting reward or jannah. It is to be done to please Allah swt. I agree with him we need to do ibadah to please Him, to thank Him. But whats wrong if I ask my Allah swt for gift, for reward. After all He is the “Rabb”, one of the meanings which is “Giver of gifts”. And Allah swt himself mentions about reward and that’s what one is asking as I know He does not go against his promises. Offcourse my ibadah does not give me certificate or stamp of getting me reward until my creator accepts it and do mercy on me. But He has given me freedom to ask him our desires thru dua and we could ask his mercy thru the same. Subhan Allah.
Please help me out friends in knowing if thinking about rewards while praying or doing any ibadah is wrong or we both are on right direction.
I end up this post with this dua that “May Allah always show us the right path and accept our deeds”. Ameen
Life is full of amazing stories and small small miracles…Ya that’s what I believe. Every day is like a journey…sometimes you just end up in the same path and sometimes you get a chance to see something new from your almighty Allah swt…
Allah reveals its magic in different ways and same I found when my mother got ill. We had already changed so many doctors but were not getting any good results. Then one night it just ticked to us to give her “Aabe zamzam” so that she could get some relief…I know we would have given her Aabe zamzam much before but you know we all have started believing so called “doctors” so much that we just forget our creator Allah swt. I Hope that this will not be the case next time . After this we recited following dua:
Read this dua friend when you are in any physical pain. You will get relief In Sha Allah. I don’t know how much relief she got as she was not in the state to explain. But no doubt she would have got. But what amazed me more that the very next day we found a good doctor…Allahumdullilah….he got her x-ray out . He catched the right issue and started medicine as per that. Wow….just look at this friends that how the dua and Aabe zamzam created magic or in short I would say when you ask anything from Allah (it includes a small relief as well) he creates ways through doctor, friends etc…SubhanAllah. We just need to feel them.
From this whole incident I just want to convey one message – start feeling the presence of Al-Khaliq (The Creator) in each and every work.You will feel relax In sha Allah. The above incident is just a small snapshot from my life but I really like to share Allah’s miracle small or big with all the people …its like you are talking about the love showered on you by some dearest companion. Try to do it …it gives immense pleasure…Allahumdullilah…
I end up this with dua that “May Allah keep showering his blessings on each one of us and increase our hold on:
The past few days have been the most tensed days of my life. My mother is not keeping well. This has created lots of tension at my home. To get sick is a normal thing and part of one’s life but I don’t know why sometime it gives me wicked thinking
“What if I loose my mother”..Oh Allah I don’t want to think about it. Parents are like gems in our life. And Allah still I have to do so any things for her. Please keep her well.”
I just kept on praying but apart from dua there was also something else which was giving me strength:
Yes whenever some wicked thinking use to come, my heart started reminding me of these verses. I think this dua really gives you sabr (patience). I know sometimes it’s easy to say to have sabr but who have actually seen the loss of a dear one, only knows the actual pain. But friends do go back towards Allah swt and keep reminding yourself about these verses. Allah will help you (In sha Allah).
Do remember friends nothing is going to last forever except “Allah”. We have to fulfill all our responsibilities in a short span of time as you never know in next second what is going to happen. Now when we know that we all will be returned to Allah then why not fill our packets with good deeds, why to waste time in something materialistic. So let’s check what small things we could do:
- Helping a poor in anyways as you never know tomorrow you will find them here or not.
- Help your friends in getting out of any problem they are facing. It will give you immense happiness.
- Do visit sick person and make dua for him. As you never know how much relief and satisfaction it can give it to them.
- the best of all is taking care of your parents including your in laws. They need our love, attention, somebody to listen them.
- And the last but not the least keep making dua as Dua is the weapon of a muslim. When thru dua you talk to all mighty it relaxes your soul.
I close this topic with this dua that “May Allah keep all of us in good health and give the power to use our health in good way i.e. in works which is liked by him and his Prophet Muhammed saaw. Also grant us with lots of sabr to face any problem in our lifes”… Ameen.
