Most people worry about their income and how can they increase it..some people live in stress and worry all the time because they are afraid they can’t afford their daily needs.
Sustenance or subsistence is something that is written before we are created.
Everyone of us has a certain sustenance that he/she should have in his/her life time.
Sustenance is not only money.
Happiness is sustenance..children…a house..a car..a wife..a brother..a family..a friend..pure air..love..all these are different kinds of sustenance..
Morals are sustenance..generosity..tolerance..awareness….intelligence..strength..courage…
No one in this life can take everything..
Sustenance is divided by Allah fairly and with his justice.
So we shouldn’t be worry about sustenance..
Yes..we should work hard and do our best to improve our life and increase our income..but also we should know that fear and worry will not increase our sustenance.
I remember a few years ago..I was watching a TV programme..The interviewer was interviewing a very poor fisherman .That programme is a charity programme.The Fisherman came with his wife and two daughters.
When the Fisherman began to tell his story and how he lost one of his eyes during his work day…his wife and two daughters began to shed tears silently.
Then the interviewer said a phrase..I still remember it uptil now..
He talked to the Fisherman and said..
(You are a very rich man…you have a treasure that many rich people miss..you have family that loves you a real true love.)
Subsistence is in the sky..we don’t need to worry about it..just pray and ask Allah with strong confidence and then work hard and search for the ways to get it..good ways of course.
Some people are homeless..they don’t have money..family..friends…but they have a great heart that accept life and appreciate it ..they are ready to help others inspite of their bad conditions..their sustenance is great indeed..
Al Ankaboot Chapter..verse 62.
