Being humble in your prayers and supplications and trying to please Allah brings a feeling of contentment and peace in our hearts. When we know that we are doing everything in our power to please our Creator, then an environment of humility and serenity prevails. Of course, we are responsible for fulfilling our roles as a fellow being to ensure that no soul is hurt or harmed by us.
The race to win the best of all things material will never come to an end. This will continue as long as we breathe our last forcing us to stay in tension, aspiring things we don’t have control over to bring in our possession. Being grateful to the Almighty for each and every thing we possess, for all His blessings can lead to a better and more enduring life ahead in the hereafter, in sha Allah. It shouldn’t matter if we don’t live the most favourite version of our lives in material terms, rather, accepting the mortality of this dunya being a temporary resting place while the afterlife being a place much desired should be the case.
