Nafs Hack: Being Thankful for Everything
Salaam, Shalom, Peace. This is Nurideen from Leftist, and this is your Nafs Hack for today.
Okay, so one of the things that I do is, when I pray, I make sure to thank Allah (SWT) for everything that I have and everything that He didn’t give me.
I think we usually pray and thank Allah (SWT) for the things that we have, but we don’t thank Him for the things that He didn’t give us.
Those things in particular might have been something that was negative for us. Since Allah (SWT) is almighty, and He has the power, He knows what we don’t know.
It’s a trick to be more grateful just in saying that’s something that I wanted, but it was something that maybe that the time for it wasn’t the right time. And because of it, I’m still patient, and I’m still grateful for what I did get.
So, I hope this hack helps. Ramadan Mubarak!
