It was reported that a short film was shown in a movie theater that began with a snapshot of the living room ceiling. No details, no color. Just a white roof.
The same scene was shown for 6 minutes when the moviegoers started getting frustrated. Some complained that the film was wasting their time and others started leaving.
Suddenly, the camera lens began to move slowly until it reached the floor below. A young child who appeared to be crippled was lying in bed, suffering from a ruptured spinal cord.
The camera then pans back up to the ceiling with the following words:
"We showed you only 8 minutes of this child's daily activity, just 8 minutes from this scene this disabled child watches all the hours of his life, and you complained and couldn't wait for 6 minutes, You couldn't bear it. Look at it.."
Sometimes we need to put ourselves in the shoes of others to realize the magnitude of the blessings we have been given and thank Allah for giving us such blessings that we take for granted.
May the light of divine direction always shine upon your path, lighting the course to be taken and banishing the darkness of uncertainty and perplexity.
- May the grace that touches the lives of everyone you come into contact with fill your heart with compassion, kindness, and love. May your presence give hope to the discouraged and consolation to the weary.
- May you be blessed on your trip with the discernment to make the correct decisions among the complex tapestry of life. May you embrace the lessons that each event has to teach you and may your mind be a haven of clarity and wisdom.
- The storms that may come may not sway your spirit since you possess fortitude and inner power. I hope that despite your difficulties, you may find comfort in the knowledge that you are being helped by something bigger than yourself.
- May your efforts pay off and offer you not only material wealth but also spiritual enlightenment. May others be inspired to pursue their dreams by your accomplishments, which will stand as a testament to your dedication and hard work.
- May you be surrounded by real friendships and nourishing connections that boost you up and motivate you. May you enjoy the laughter of others and find comfort in quiet moments with others.
- May you spend each day in thankfulness, appreciating all the benefits that come your way. May you serve as a conduit for blessings, distributing your surplus to those in need and therefore amplifying the good in the world.
