_Beware of sadness (احذروا الحزن)_

· Ibn Al Qayyim, may Allaah have mercy on him, said the word (الحزن) – (sadness) does not appear in the Qur'aan except in the form of forbidding it (ولا تهنو ولا تحزنوا) or in the form of negating it (فلاخوف عليهم ولا هم يحزنون).

And the reason for this is because there is no benefit for having sadness in the heart. The most beloved thing to the shaytaan is to make the believing slave sad by taking him off track.

· The Prophet (ﷺ) sought refuge in Allaah Ta'aala from sadness.
(اللهم إني أعوذ بك من الهم والحزن)

· Ibn Al Qayyim said: Sadness weakness the heart and diminishes determination and wanting to go forward. And there is nothing more beloved to the shaytaan than sadness of a believer.

· For this reason, be happy, optimistic and think good about Allaah Ta'aala. Have trust in what Allaah  Ta'aala is able to do and depend on Him. You will find happiness and pleasure in all situations.

· Ibn Al Qayyim said: Don’t ruin your happiness with worry, and don’t ruin your mind with pessimism. Don’t ruin your success with deception and don’t ruin the optimism of others by destroying it. Don’t ruin your day by looking back at yesterday.

· If you think about your situation, you will find that Allaah Ta'aala has given you things without asking, so have trust in Allaah that He doesn’t prevent anything you want except that there is goodness for you.

· You could be sleeping and the doors of the heavens are being opened with dua’as being made on your behalf, SubHaan-Allaah: Perhaps from someone poor whom you helped, or someone sad whom you brought joy, or someone passing by and you smiled to him, or someone in distraught and you removed it...
So don’t ever underestimate any good deeds.

· One of the righteous predecessors said: I make du’aa to Allaah for something I want, and if He gives it to me then I’m happy once and if He doesn’t give it to me then I’m happy ten times because the first was my choice and the second was Allaah’s choice.

· As Sa’ady, may Allaah have mercy on him, said: life is short so don’t shorten it with worries, grief, and sadness.

· So be the owner of a heart that breathes happiness and satisfaction.

May Allaah Tabarakah Wa Ta'aala grant us all true happiness, contentment of heart and good Taqdeer.
