“…look to what your concerns and worries are…”

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Malik ibn Dinar (R) once said,

“Allah sees your concerns and worries, so look to what your concerns and worries are, may Allah have mercy on you.”

[Rawdhat al-‘Uqala’]


Sometimes in life, we will pass those days which bring sadness or grief our way, and each of us have stories to tell. But by shifting perspectives and looking from different angles we can often overcome and remove our worries. One of these methods is as highlighted by Ibn Dinar above: Allah sees our concerns. So if what is bothering us is of little worth in the Sight of Allah or it is displeasing to Him, then the amazing thing about Iman (faith) is that it will cause our heart to automatically attach little importance to that thing and this will help a person overcome issues. The more you increase in your faith and become closer to Allah, the more insignificant these matters become to you. As someone once put it, Iman is like being in a plane; the higher up you go, the smaller everything will appear on earth.
