Susah Orang

One of the thing about my meditation class is that people who goes there are usually people with problems. Of course this is just natural. You have a problem, you seek out answers and sometimes just desperate enough to grab at anything that remotely looks like hope.

or, like me, was recommended skipped the more skeptical side of logic and jumped into it.

Usually at the end of the day's lesson we would have a feedback session and it would usually let us peep into some people's life. They'd talk about how things changed for them and stuff. Since I'm a good student and is usually around for class (chewah!), there's a lot of stories I heard that makes me just feel so lucky.

There was this lady who has such a jovial personality that surprised me when she told the group how things were with her life. I had a good warning that this is going to be a really sad story when, at the intro she mentioned her friend at her side then (sambil tepuk gaya makcik tu) would know and the friend just went into tears. I braced myself and listened.

She married an OKU with a rare bone disease. His bones doesn't stop growing. To make it worst, he's got a blood condition. His blood resists anesthetic and even poison. To get a tooth out, he's gotta get 4 shots of them thing to actually work. 4 years ago he needed an operation and they had to overdoes to give him a knockout. The result was that he went into a coma for 4 months. The wife quit her job to take care of him and form banking field, into tailoring.

Recently the doc told them he's got a month more to live due to his blood condition. the blood was thickening and there is a blood clot that was growing in size rapidly. Again after the diagnose he went into a coma and just recently woke up. First thing he did waking up? Took wudhu for prayers. Awesome guy. He's a pretty smart guy too.

Listening to them makes me feel like I've never had a problem before in my life and these people are such great people. Allah knows how much strength I have and tested me accordingly. Allah knows she's got a way bigger heart and showed us that.

So indeed with hardship is ease. Indeed with hardship is ease.

  2. And here we are, sitting behind our laptops, blabbering about how our lives are miserable on social networks padahal compared to those who are truly going through a hardship, ours is just like a bump on the road. Thanks for sharing.

    1. u know, some sahaba get restless when they're okay and are relieved when something bad happens. because they know when they're up, things will go down and when they're down there... indeed with hardship is ease.

      help is on the way!

    1. it is general, his students range from a rawatan Islam punya ustaz, an indian yoga practitioner to an oldschool herbalist in australia.

      though most of the class i went had all muslims attendees so he leaned the session towards that.
