Just a short but very important advice from Ustaz Don Daniyal at the Majlis Haul of Imam Al-Haddad in KL last Saturday.
He asked, how many of us quietly complain when it rains? Sometimes, we grumble when it rains: "Oh no, have to cancel my plan." "Oh dear, have to cancel our outing."
Beware, said Ustaz Don, because if we grumble, we are not in synch with what Allah says in the Quran. We are supposed to rejoice!
"It is Allah who sends the Winds, and they stir the clouds and spread them in the sky however He wills, and He makes them fragments so you see the rain emerge from within them. And when He causes it to fall upon whom He wills of His servants, immediately they rejoice."
- Surah Ar Rum:48
