  • taken for granted till deprived

    My new office is no way better than my previous one, except that it has one thing that I missed a lot, a WINDOW. My colleagues find it awkward when they see me time & again standing near the window enjoying the natural sunlight. One of them rightly said, "You seem to get charged by the sunlight ?!"I had never thought that I would miss sunlight so much in my office, till I spent 3 years in one having none.

    My longest & most pleasant "sajda" was the first one on the ground after being deprived of it for 9 months due to a knee injury (Hence prayed on chair)

    Every time I go out of KSA, people who are with me realize that I am not listening to them, but unintentionally am lost in the beautiful greenery visible from the car window. They also realize how "greenery starved" my eyes had become after spending a year in the desert.

    It is good to sometimes visit graves, hospitals & jails. To spend sometime in villages with almost no electricity, water, food...etc. To meet people who miss a lot their late mother/ father/ spouse/ brother/ sister....etc. Because, if I don't make myself value the blessings when they are there, nature would force me to value it when a specific blessing is no more.

      Thought this was going to be a spouse moaning about their marriage lol.

      Good points though.
      Believe none of what you hear, and only half of what you see.

        ^ lol. JazakAllah khair.

        Just found this quote online, that seems relevant to the topic:

        “I have learned that some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet are those who have suffered a traumatic event or loss. I admire them for their strength, but most especially for their life gratitude - a gift often taken for granted by the average person in society.”

        I am always in search of such people, as they are an asset & their experience is a source of guidance. They help you in learning lessons without going through the difficulties that they went through.

          My husband once told me, most of the pious/practicing people are those who have suffered in life & that made them closer to allah vs. the average joe.

          I have seen it to be true in lot of instance
