Ramadan 2019/1440: Thought of the Day 26

The quote for Day 26 of Ramadan from my box of things to think about is:

“Allah Knows what’s best for you, and when it’s best to have it.” 

Alhamdulillah, another saying that makes me think about patience, at a time when I have had to have some. As always it has not been my strongest point: the last days of Ramadan, Eid preparations, Baby has had a stomach bug and both my in-laws have been very unwell, coupled with a relative who has been quite unkind to me and I have had to ignore and be nice back.  Then hubby books his tickets to go India for six weeks on behalf of his masjid and I am fretting about dates and holidays.

So this is as good a time as any to take a step back, a deep breath and let go of anxiety and trying to do everything.  One step at a time, one thing at a time, a little at a time.  It is enough and I am enough alhamdulillah.  Insh’Allah, I hope to take the last few days of Ramadan slowly and gently for myself, my family and my husband insh’Allah who also seems to be doing a lot of rushing about at the moment.

'...and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows but you do not know.' ~ Quran 2:216

Al-Hasan al-Basri said: 'Do not resent the calamities that come and the disasters that occur, for perhaps in something that you dislike will be your salvation, and perhaps in something that you prefer will be your doom.'

'And when someone puts all his trust in Allah, He will be enough for him.' ~ Quran 65:3
