Sometimes you told people about one story and it will end up to be different from what you have told them. It's common right?
Sometimes you don't even have to open your mouth to start your story, they already know a lot about you. They have heard all of it from other people. Some of them weren't true at all.
As a matter of fact, usually you'll believe in other people's story rather than trying to find it out by yourselves. In a blink of an eye, the spoken words will change your perspective, your impression towards others. Little did you know that things weren't like that, weren't supposed to be like that. Or perhaps you know, but you couldn't care less.
It's always the same. In times like this, you just have to be patient.
Imam Ibn Al-Qayyim said,
“There are three types of patience: Firstly, practicing patience to fulfill the obligations and to do righteous. Secondly, abstaining from evil and prohibited acts.And thirdly, practicing patience during times of hardship without complaints.”
I have to be patient for certain things in life. I've learned to endure it while I can.
I've been wondering how did it went wrong, why and where did that leave me?
Even this one is relentless. It keeps me up at night thinking about it again and again.
P/s: Did you know that the word ‘al-sheda’ (hardship) is mentioned 102 times and the word ‘al-sabr’(patience) is mentioned 102 times in Holy Quran ?
