POEM: All Are Servants Of Allah [Regarding Materialistic Things Never Compare Yourself To Others]

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

Some tips on how to quit comparing yourself
To others who, like you, are servants of God:
First, Alhamdulillah that you are Muslim,
A lover of truth and denier of fraud.

If you see yourself closely, you'll notice that
There are good things about you which others lack,
Tough lessons you have learned which many have not,
And good qualities which some folks wish they had.

Don't compare yourself to others, for each has
A book full of stories, and each has a role.
Each one has his/her own journey to travel,
Experiences, talents and puzzles to solve.

Some excel at writing, others in speaking,
Some are good at learning, others in teaching,
Some master the art of dealing with people,
While others the art of cooking and baking.

Some are experts in certain fields such as in -
Sales, fixing things, designing or promoting.
Others have a way with kids, babysitting,
Being sweet or admirably forgiving.

Some know how to rhyme, some clean well, while others
Show excellence as leaders or in nursing,
In researching, giving speeches or advice,
Or in being a friend - truthful and caring.

Everyone has his/her own set of strengths and
Weaknesses - thus, always try to understand -
When Allah gives good things to some and not you,
It's out of wisdom and it's from Allah's Plan.

Be thankful for all the good that Allah gave -
The ones you're aware of and those not yet known.
Avoid jealousy and envy for these are
Traits of satan, who wants Hell to be man's home.

You are special, you are unique, Allah's friend -
A righteous Muslim happy for his brothers,
Always doing what is right and shunning wrong,
Not obsessed with materialistic matters.

Include all Muslims worldwide in your good du'as :)
May Allah the Most Merciful accept all our good deeds, May Allah the Most Forgiving forgive all our sins, and May Allah the Almighty join us with His righteous friends in Firdaus/Heaven near Him and His beloved Messenger Muhammad sallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam. Ameen.
