Dan orang yang sabar kerana mencari keredhaan Tuhannya, mendirikan solat dan menafkahkan sebahagian rezeki yang Kami nafkahkan kepada mereka, secara sembunyi atau terang-terangan, serta menolak kejahatan dengan kebaikan, orang itulah yang mendapat tempat kesudahan yang baik.

Appreciate the Gift

Part One.


Yesterday I’m driving home from Pasar Malam (after work) with full of tears in my eyes. I just can’t stop thinking bout a poor beggar whom I met at the Pasar Malam.

Dunno how to explain bout his physical, but he is abnormal (OKU) and he crawled on the road. Lower than my knees. He is very thin. Skinny as we could see his bones.


While I’m always murmur bout being fat, there are lot of people suffer and starve. This young beggar is look un-familiar to me. I can say, there is a ‘beggar syndicate’ here.

Usually there was a woman or a man, with one leg. I can recognize them because every time visited Pasar Malam I will meet them. And 70% I believe that they (or someone) ‘cut’ their leg to be a beggar. Normally, since the Pasar Malam in front of my office is just a narrow, there only have one beggar at the same time. No clash. That’s why I suspect, they have a syndicate. Their faces are not a Malaysian type. Just Allah knows everything, and no matter whom they are, I believe, if we give helps, sincere with the name of Allah, insyaAllah, Allah will gives us rewards as a return.


Back to the young beggar.. He is very skinny. His ‘abnormal’ are nature, maybe since he was born. His bones are ‘twisted’, so different with us. How poor. But yet, he always smiles. He lower his head (almost touch the road) every time people give him some money. How touching. As usual, I bend my knees while giving but at this time, I need to bend lower, almost squatting, and he response by lower his head (maybe to say thanks) then smiling at me. Ya Allah. He has a very difficult life but yet able to smile. I feel so (dunno how to say), quickly I walk away and went to my car. Can’t stay any longer, if not I can’t stop my tears flowing.


End Part One.




Part Two.



Today, I’m driving alone towards my office with my little red cute car. I am late, little bit in rush, so I drive quite fast. Almost full throttle.. Huhu.. While listening to radio, I focus on the road. The red car moves very swift. Suddenly, a bicycle crosses the road, it is very close. Immediately I hit the emergency break and sound the hon. Long and loud tones. My heart beats very fast. So close! If I fail to slow down my car, if I late for just only one second, I must hit him! Naauzubillah.. Luckily also behind me there is no car. If not, I could able hit by other car because of the emergency break. Thanks to Allah for saving him and me. Alhamdulillah. However, my heart still beating so fast until I reach my office and park the car. The man with the bicycle crossed just in front of my car keep flashing back in my head. So close!


Some people are perfect but some people not.

Some people got everything while some others not.


The people who don’t have everything wish to have what they don’t but unfortunately, people who have everything did not appreciate what they have. As the example, the man who crossed the road, so hustle without looking right or left. Aren’t he loves his own body, own life? Aren’t he is happy and grateful for being physically perfect? What if the car hit him? He might break his leg or his hand, or ever worse than that, he might lose his live on road. As Malays said “mati katak”. Naauzubillah.


Allah gives us eyes, ears, nose, legs, hands and everything so perfect is for reasons. While we have what we have, we must appreciate the Allah’s gift, take care of it carefully, obey to Allah, follow Allah’s rules, do the good and avoid the bad. Please be careful especially on road. Don’t hustle. Turn right, left then right before cross. For ladies (or maybe everybody), avoid walking alone. Criminal is everywhere. Nobody knows what will happen in future. Stay away from dangers.


For smokers, stop smoking. You are in your way to destroy your own body and silently killing others around you. He/she is maybe your loves one. Eat to stay alive not eat for death. Do some exercise. Keep the healthy life style and avoid bad activities. Don’t drink. Avoid sex before married. Don’t take drugs or forbidden pills. Spend time for your physical and mental to get enough rest. Avoid stress. If you have problems, try to settle it down intelligently. If you can’t, please discuss with others and if there is no way out, ask for other’s help. However, avoid borrowing money from shark loan. Manage your credit card smartly. Reduce debt. Don’t is better.

End Part Two.



Conclusion


Friends, while we are stuck in a difficult or hard situation, say thanks to Allah because at least, we still alive, and we still have two legs, two hands, two eyes, two ears. Remember, someone is somewhere are not lucky as us. They don’t have what we have. So, my dear friends please appreciate everything we have. Say Alhamdulillah to Allah always.


We are lucky but some people are not.


If they can smile so what our reasons to not?



Wassalam.

Manusia memang telah Allah jadikan sangat lemah dari segi fizikal dan rohani..

Apa yang ada, jarang disyukuri..
Apa yang tiada, Sering dirisaukan..
Arghh..betapa dunia ini telah dijadikan sebagai ujian cuma.. sangat memenatkan manusia yang mahu mencintainya..
