You, them and Allah

If you are kind; people may accuse you of selfish; ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.

People are often unreasonable; illogical and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.

If you are successful; you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank; people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building; someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness; they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today; people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have; and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.

You see; in the final analysis; it is between you and Allah. It never was between you and them anyway.Doesn’t matter if the outcome isn’t as expected or as wanted; because Allah will see; judge and reward Inshallah. We do things for other people…for the sake of Allah; we help; give; love; care; share; forgive etc for the sake of Allah. Our intentions should always be for His sake and pleasure. Inshallah.

…Then; whatever they do or say won’t bring you down Inshallah; because it was for Allah anyway…

    Excellently worded, it is a great reminder for me and I think for a lot of other people. Jazak’ Allah for sharing this. That reminds me of what my mother once said: “People who fear Allah do not fear other people. People who fear other people don’t fear Allah.”

    But the last copulet really striked me. I sometimes forget very simple concepts. May you receive barakah from Allah for sharing this barakah with me. Ameen.
