Stop Complaining

Seeing someone who's skinny; 
"Why am I so fat?"

Seeing someone who's rich;
"Why am I so poor?"

Eating something that isn't really nice;
"Tak sedap lah makanan ni."

Seeing someone who's pretty;
"If only I were that pretty."

Seeing someone who's not pretty;
"Eee dah lah tak lawa, gemuk pulak tu."

Seeing someone who's very intelligent;
"She has no life. She lives and sleeps only with the book."

We tend to complain and critic about the things we don't have and forget those blessings that we have.

Have you ever thought..

There's someone out there who is very very fat and wanna have a body like you.
There's someone out there who is very very skinny and willing to do anything to have a body like you.
Lizzie Velasquez eats 60 times a day to have a body like you.

There's someone out there who is poorer than you and is struggling to live.
Even RM 1 is really precious to them.

There's someone out there who has no food to eat.
There's a family who only eat rice with salt water for breakfast, lunch, dinner.
Just look at those poor countries.
When a food truck comes, berebut semua orang kejar.

You think you're not pretty?
You have eyes to see, nose to breathe, mouth to eat.

Criticising someone else without thinking about their feelings.
Don't you realise you are judging Allah's creation?
And who are you to judge His creation?
Biar tak cantik di mata manusia, asalkan cantik di mata Allah.

He's intelligent because of his effort.
Perlu ke you question and critic him because of his intelligent?

There're many other blessings that we get.
A new day to live on.
People to love and yourself to be loved.
Food to eat, things to think.

Be grateful. Be grateful. And be grateful.

And [remember] when your Lord proclaimed, 'If you are grateful, I will surely increase you [in favor]; but if you deny, indeed, My punishment is severe.

Translation:
Dan (ingatlah) ketika Tuhan kamu memberitahu: "Demi sesungguhnya! Jika kamu bersyukur nescaya Aku akan tambahi nikmatKu kepada kamu, dan demi sesungguhnya, jika kamu kufur ingkar sesungguhnya azabKu amatlah keras".
[Al-Quran, 14:7]

Be grateful. Of what we have and what we don't have.

... but perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not.

Translation:
... dan boleh jadi kamu benci kepada sesuatu padahal ia baik bagi kamu, dan boleh jadi kamu suka kepada sesuatu padahal ia buruk bagi kamu. Dan (ingatlah), Allah jualah Yang mengetahui (semuanya itu), sedang kamu tidak mengetahuinya.
[Al-Quran, 2:216]

Don't count others' blessings (in negative way),
as it may lead you to being an ungrateful servant.
Just a bit food for thought.

Assalamualaikum.
