Al Salam Alaykum,
I m finding it very hard to accept that some people have it all and others have nothing. Im always struggling about what i don’t have although hamdella God has given me good things in life. For some reason when i reach a point of contentment i then look at other people who have more or who have things that i want then i go down and feel depressed. What should a person do in order to feel contentment with what he has even if he saw others who have more. And how come some people have it all and others have nothing?? How to coop with the unfairness of this life.
Thank you for giving us this opportunity Mawlana, thank you for hearing us out and helping us.
Mawlana Shaykh says, “The man who has no shoes should look at the one who has no feet.”
Recite: allahuma akfinee bi-halalika `ana haramik waghninee bi-fadlika `amman siwak, to increase your dependency on Allah for the best, which is halal rizq, halal character, and sufficiency with Allah Alone. Then you will begin to see the balance and justice in creation, insha-Allah.
If you observe the night vigil (Qiyam al-Layl), focus on the du`a in the sajda after Salat an-Najat, as taught to us by our mashaykh.
