Too Much

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ


sometimes we want something so much, that we don't think much of anything else.
we disregard all the 'what if's'.

what if it won't be mine?
what if it gets stolen?
what if i lose it?

and then it happened.
when we really can't have it.
what happens next?


i'm seeing so much of these around me;
that i think i've been really cautious not to fall into the same trap.
because every time i hear the whines they make just because they don't get something that they want,
it makes me feel so tired inside.

and don't we all feel the same?
and yet, don't we all do the same?

why do we humans like to agonize over something that we don't have?
day-dreaming of things so far ahead of us, sometimes even beyond our reach?
wanting things too much, that we burden ourselves, inflicting unnecessary pain on oneself just to have them.

Wordly things.
they consist of many; and it's not just those bags, the jobs, the cars, and the house.
Love is also one of them; Love which doesn't make you any closer to Allah.


we all have a problem, really.
we want the things that we don't have, too much.
and we forget the things that we already have, too fast.

as always, reminder to self, first and foremost.
jom tadah tangan:

Ya Rabb,
berikanlah kami ilham untuk tetap mensyukuri nikmat-Mu 
yang Engkau anugerahkan kepada kami.


“Jika kamu menghitung-menghitung nikmat Allah, 
nescaya kamu tidak akan dapat menentukan jumlahnya (menghitungnya). 
Sesungguhnya Allah benar-benar Maha Pengampun Lagi Maha Penyayang.”
