Losses and how to cope


If God (ALLAH) has bestowed upon you many blessings from His infinite treasures and still you talk in public about your little pain or sorrow, then you are being very ungrateful. Learn to value your blessings and to count them. There might be lot of people around you who are suffering beyond imagination. However, if something still hurts you or causes you grief, then recite "Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un" ("Surely we belong to Allah and to Him shall we return"). This is not to be recited only over the demise of someone but can also be recited whenever we feel sorrowful, in pain or any adversity. By reciting this verse in pain or sorrow, you earn good deeds and Allah also grants you patience or 'sabar'.
