Sustenance 🤲

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 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 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…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..

Allah says..

اللَّهُ يَبْسُطُ الرِّزْقَ لِمَنْ يَشَاءُ مِنْ عِبَادِهِ وَيَقْدِرُ لَهُ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمٌ
Allah enlarges the sustenance (which He gives) to whichever of His servants He pleases; and He (similarly) grants by (strict) measure, (as He pleases): for Allah has full knowledge of all things.

Al Ankaboot Chapter..verse 62.

Allah also says…

وَفِي السَّمَاءِ رِزْقُكُمْ وَمَا تُوعَدُونَ
And in heaven is your Sustenance, as (also) that which ye are promised.
فَوَرَبِّ السَّمَاءِ وَالْأَرْضِ إِنَّهُ لَحَقٌّ مِثْلَ مَا أَنَّكُمْ تَنْطِقُونَ
Then, by the Lord of heaven and earth, this is the very Truth, as much as the fact that ye can speak intelligently to each other.

Adharyat verse 23…

Finally I want to add something here..

All kinds of good work should be respected..we should not be ashamed of our job as long as we do a good job that never hurt others..

We should not respect people because they are rich and elegant..we should respect them because they work hard to get their sustenance…

I don’t care who you are..where are you from…what you long as you do your best to have clean money to live with..

  2. I worked as a cleaning women most of my life. My (non Muslim) Family was always very embarrassed and they would not like to tell their friends what my job was. But I was always okay with my job. I didn‘t care about a great career. I just wanted to make a little bit of money. What i really wandet? Be a good wife, Muslim, mother and take good care of my household and family. A lot of people laugh at me or look down on me but i‘m not ashamed at all.
