Dear married couple
They spent days struggling. They spent days striving. There was no glamorous kitchen. There was no expensive sofas and costly furniture. There was only bowing, prostrating, supplications, tears and pure love.
Sayyiduna Ali worked tirelessly through-out the day to earn his own wealth. Sayyidah Fatimah would raise the children, she would grind grain and she'd bake bread. Things would get so difficult for them, yet their love only continued. They'd become extremely tired due to their struggles, yet they only increased in contentment. What is our condition? If our fridges are empty of juice, drink and food, we begin to fight. If our cupboards don't have enough biscuits and cereals, we get upset. If breakfast, lunch and dinner is not extraordinary, we bicker.
Our women all call themselves queen and want the world. Guess what? She IS the queen and she only wanted the akhirah. Our men think they are brave and deserve the best of lives. Guess what? He IS the Lion of Allah, yet he never once complained of the conditions. We have everything yet how happy are we? What is the state of our homes and how do we raise our children? They had very little of the world and they are the leaders of paradise. Look at how they were tested, yet they still raised the likes of Sayyiduna Hasan and Hussain. رضي الله عنهم
