  • Don't be Sad


  • Seek out sustenance but don't be covetous

     

    All glory and praise is for the Creator and Provider. He gives sustenance to the worm in the ground, the fish beneath water, the bird in the air, the ant in the dark, and the snake within the crevice of a rock.

     

    Ibn al-Jawzi mentioned something he witnessed that was wonderful yet strange. A blind snake lived on a branch at the top of a tree. A bird would come to it with food in its mouth. It would chirp a signal to the snake, which in return would open its mouth and allow the bird to insert the food. All praise and glory belongs to Allah, Who made this one to help the other.

     

    (Nor a bird that flies with its two wings, but are communities like you.)         (Qur'an 6: 38)

     

    Provision came to Mariyam (Mary) day and night. It was said to her, "How does this come to you." She replied, "It is from Allah. Verily, Allah provides for whom He wishes without reckoning."

    So do not worry, for your sustenance is guaranteed.

     

    (And kill not your children for fear of poverty. We provide for them and for you.)                                           (Qur'an 17:31)

     

    People must realize that the Provider for both father and son is the One Who begets not, nor is He begotten.

     

    (And kill not your children for fear of poverty. We provide for them and for you. )                                          (Qur'an 17: 31)

     

    The proprietor of infinite treasures has guaranteed your sustenance.

     

    (So seek your provision from Allah [Alone], and worship Him [Alone], and be grateful to Him.)                               (Qur'an 29: 17)

     

    (And it is He who feeds me and gives me to drink)      (Qur'an 26: 79)
