Work with passion
Love without needing to be loved
Appreciate what you have
And do your best for a better world.
Excerpted from this presentation, which makes one realize how much we have, and how much to be grateful for.
I sometimes wonder how our forefathers lived, and think that the things we have in our daily lives would surely be nothing short of luxury: exotic foods and fruits, warm and comfortable clothing, washing machines, a car–basics in today’s time, but our ancestors, no matter how wealthy, surely would be amazed. So, when I found the presentation above, it really resonated deeply…Reminds me of this saying of the Prophet Muhammed (SAW) that goes something like this:
Look up to one who is greater in piety so you strive to be like him and look upon one who is below you in material status so that you may be thankful to Allah’s Grace.
