Think from the others side — A small story-Good one….

The train has started moving. It is packed with people of all ages, mostly with the working men and women and young college guys and gals. Near the window, seated a old man with his 30 year old son. As the train moves by, the son is overwhelmed with joy as he was thrilled with the scenory outside..

     30 year old son asks  ” See dad, the scenory of green trees moving away is very beautiful”

This behaviour from a thirty year old son made the other people feel strange about him. Every one started murmuring something or other about this son.”This guy seems to be a krack..” newly married Anup whispered to his wife.
        Suddenly it started rainingRain drops fell on the travellers through the opened window. The 30 year old son , filled with  joy
” see dad, how beautiful the rain is ..

      Anup’s wife got irritated with the rain drops spoiling her new suit.
       Anup says to old man ,” cant you see its raining, you old man, if ur son is not feeling well get him soon to a mental asylum..and dont disturb public henceforth”   
                 
 The old man hesitated first and then in a low tone replied  “We are on the way back from hospital, my son got discharged today morning , he was a blind by birth,last week only he got his vision,  these rain and nature are new to his eyes.. Please forgive us for the inconvenience caused…”
  
The things we see may be right from our prespective until we know the truth. Bt when we know the truth our reaction to that will hurt even us. So try to understand the problem better before taking a harsh action.
Patience, Perseverance, and Prayer
During times of deep trial, despair, and sadness, Muslims seek comfort and guidance in the words of Allah in the Qur’an. Allah reminds us that all people will be tried and tested in life, and calls upon Muslims to bear these trials with “patient perseverance and prayer.” Indeed, Allah reminds us that many people before us have suffered and had their faith tested; so too will we be tried and tested in this life.
There are dozens upon dozens of verses that remind Muslims to be patient and trust in Allah during these times of trial. Among them:
“Seek Allah’s help with patient perseverance and prayer. It is indeed hard except for those who are humble.” (2:45)
“Oh you who believe! Seek help with patient perseverance and prayer, for God is with those who patiently persevere.” (2:153)
“Be sure We shall test you with something of fear and hunger, some loss in goods, lives, and the fruits of your toil.
But give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere. Those who say, when afflicted with calamity, ‘To Allah we belong, and to Him is our return.’ They are those on whom descend blessings from their Lord, and mercy. They are the ones who receive guidance.” (2:155-157)
“Oh you who believe! Persevere in patience and constancy. Vie in such perseverance, strengthen each other, and be pious, that you may prosper.” (3:200)
“And be steadfast in patience, for verily Allah will not suffer the reward of the righteous to perish.” (11:115)
“Be patient, for your patience is with the help of Allah.” (16:127)
“Patiently, then, persevere – for the Promise of Allah is true, and ask forgiveness for your faults, and celebrate the praises of your Lord in the evening and in the morning.” (40:55)
“No one will be granted such goodness except those who exercise patience and self-restraint, none but persons of the greatest good fortune.” (41:35)
Verily man is in loss, except such as have faith, and do righteous deeds, and join together in the mutual enjoining of truth, and of patience and constancy.” (103:2-3)
As Muslims, we should not let our emotions get the better of us. It is certainly difficult for a person to look at the tragedies of the world today and not feel helpless and sad. But believers are called to put their trust in their Lord, and not to fall into despair or hopelessness. We must continue to do what Allah has called us to do: put our trust in Him, perform good deeds, and stand as witnesses for justice and truth.
“It is not righteousness that you turn your faces towards East or West.
But it is righteousness to believe in Allah and the Last Day,
And the Angels, and the Book, and the Messengers;
To spend of your substance, out of love for Him,
For your kin, for orphans, for the needy,
for the wayfarer, for those who ask, and for the ransom of slaves;
To be steadfast in prayer
And give in charity;
To fulfill the contracts which you have made;
And to be firm and patient, in pain and adversity
And throughout all periods of panic.
Such are the people of truth, the God-fearing.
Qur’an 2:177

Verily, with every difficulty there is relief.
Verily, with every difficulty there is relief.
Qur’an 94:5-6
