As we all pass through life looking at people and materialistic things around us, we often tend to look at people above us and desire to be like them. But Islam advises us to look at those below us and feel content with what Allah (SWT) has provided us.
In Surah Al-Ma’arij, Allah uses a powerful word to describe the human psyche. Ustadh Nouman explains how the word “halu’a” ingeniously captures our knee jerk reaction to adversity; how we get angry, give up and slip into despair. On the flip side, when good things happen to us, our immediate tendency is to be greedy and fearful of giving wealth or even knowledge. Yet in the same surah Allah provides a remedy for this condition. It is through consistent prayer and charity that we can contain our default reactions, learn to be grateful and put issues into proper perspective.
