    Default A great lesson of life from one of the smallest creatures of Allah (swt):

    A great lesson of life from one of the smallest creatures of Allah (swt):
    One morning I wasted nearly an hour watching a tiny Ant carry a huge feather cross my back terrace.
    Several times it was confronted by obstacles in its path and after a momentary pause it would
    make the necessary detour.
    At one point the Ant had to negotiate a crack in the concrete
    about 10mm wide. After brief contemplation the
    Ant laid the feather over the crack, walked across it and
    picked up the feather on the other side then continued
    on its way.
    I was fascinated by the ingenuity of this ant, one of
    God’s smallest creatures. It served to reinforce the miracle
    of creation. Here was a minute insect, lacking in
    size yet equipped with a brain to reason, explore, discover
    and overcome. But this Ant, like the two-legged co-residents of this planet, also shares human
    After some time the Ant finally reached its destination - a flower bed at the end of the terrace and
    a small hole that was the entrance to its underground home. And it was here that the Ant finally met
    its match. How could that large feather possibly fit down small hole?
    Of course it couldn’t. So the Ant, after all this trouble and exercising great ingenuity, overcoming
    problems all along the way, just abandoned the feather and went home.
    The Ant had not thought the problem through before it began its epic journey and in the end the
    feather was nothing more than a burden.
    The Moral:
    My dear friends, Isn’t OUR LIFE like that?
    We worry too much about our family; we worry about money or the lack of it, we worry about work,
    about where we live, about all sorts of things. These are all burdens - the things we pick up along
    life’s path and lug them around the obstacles and over the crevasses that life will bring, only to find
    that at the destination they are useless and we can’t take them with us.
    This too shall pass!
    A king called all of his wise men and counselors together for a meeting.
    He addressed them and said, “I want you to go and think, read, and
    research. Consult the wisest and most learned men in the land. Spare no
    “I want you to find the ONE statement that will get me through all situations
    in life. Whether I am on top of the world or in the pits, find that
    statement.” “I don’t want to learn long and complicated philosophies. I
    want one simple statement. Find it or write it; I don’t care, just bring me
    the statement.”
    The men left and consulted for months. They finally returned and handed the King a scroll.
    The King unrolled the scroll. On it was written four words. “THIS TOO SHALL PASS!” That was it.
    The wise men explained. When you are on top of the world, that is but a fleeting moment, things
    change, always remember, this too shall pass. When you are in the pits, all nights are followed by
    day, at your lowest moments remember also, this too shall pass.
    All external circumstances and material things change. No matter what your circumstances,
    remember, “THIS TOO SHALL PASS!”
    The wise men reminded the great King that this would get him through his earthly things but the
    truly wise knew there were things beyond this earth and life. Things that were eternal.
    True wisdom they reminded the King was in the ability to recognize the fleeting temporal things of
    the material world from the truly eternal things.
    O Great King they said, “Most of the things that you worry or gloat about are temporary and our
    four words apply.”
    The Moral:
    My dear friends, for most of our situations... “THIS TOO SHALL PASS!”
    Holy Qur’an says:
    “Everyone on it must pass away. And there will endure for ever the
    person of your Lord, the Lord of glory and honor.”

    Our Lord! grant us good in this world

    and good in the hereafter,
    and save us from the chastisement of the fire

    Hadrat Anas Radi ALLAH Taala Anhu reported that the Messenger of Allah Peace And Blessings Be Upon Him has said, “Everything has a heart, and the heart of the Qur’an is Yasin. Allah records anyone who recites Yasin as having recited the Qur’an ten times.”
