If you have food in the fridge, clothes on your back, a roof over your head and a place to sleep, you are richer than 75% of the world. if you have any money in the bank, your wallet and some spare change in a dish someplace, you are among the top 8% of the world’s wealthy. if you woke up this morning with more health than illness, you are more blessed than the million people who will not survive this week. if you have never experienced the danger of battle, the agony of imprisonment or torture, or the horrible pangs of starvation, you are luckier than 500 million people alive going through this suffering. if you can read this message you are more fortunate than the 3 billion people in the world who cannot read at all.
“Allah doesn’t partition you into pieces and loves some and not loves others.
That’s what people do.
That’s what you do.
That’s what I do at times.
Allah, who created you, accepts and loves every little part of you, even those you deny and hate in yourself.
So next time you try to dislike a part of you, or dislike a part of people, just pause, look and remember that Allah loves it.”
I can’t wait to watch this!
- Lilly: What's a soulmate?
- Dawson: Well, it's like a best friend, but more. It's the one person in the world that knows you better than anyone else. It's someone who makes you a better person, well, actually they don't make you a better person - you do that yourself because they inspire you. A soulmate is someone who you carry with you forever. It's the one person who knew you, and accepted you, and believed in you before anyone else did or when no one else would. And no matter what happens... you will always love them.
