A man was lying on the couch worried about the taxes to be paid, the unpaid bills, his kid’s School fees and to top it all, his relatives and friends were coming over for the felicitation party after a week.

When he got up and looked around, he noticed his son at the study table writing furiously into his notebook.

“My Teacher asked us to write a paragraph on “Negative Thanksgiving” for homework today” Said the son. He continued “Teacher told us to make a list of things that we are grateful for, things that make us feel not so good in the beginning, but eventually turn out to be good.”

Out of curiosity, the father took a look into the book.

This is what the boy wrote:
• I am thankful for final exams; it means my holidays are going to start
• I am thankful for the bad tasting vegetables, they keep me stay healthy
• I am thankful for my injections; they keep me away from diseases
• I am thankful for waking up early, because it means I am still alive

His father then realized that he had a lot of things to be thankful and grateful for too. He thought once again and realized, “He was thankful for taxes, that meant he was blessed with a good job, he had unpaid bills that means he was living a comfortable life with all the facilities, he had to pay his kids’ school fee, that meant his kids were lucky to get good education. He had to make arrangements for his relatives’ and friends’ stay for the party which meant he had good relatives and friends with whom he could celebrate.

Moral of the story:
We generally complain about the negative things in life, but we fail to look at the positive side of it. Sometimes we complain even without realizing because complaining is the easiest thing to do. When you find yourself thinking or saying a negative thing about something or someone, stop and try to find something positive instead.

Quote: “Instead of complaining that the rose bush is full of thorns, be happy the thorn bush has roses.” ~Proverb

Amrah Radiyallahu Anha reports that someone asked 'Aayeshah Radiyallahu 'Anha. "What was the usual practice of Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam at home?" She replied: "He was a human from among other humans. He himself removed the lice from his clothing, milked his goats, and did all his work himself". (TIRMIZI)

Commentary: 'He was a human from among other humans' means as the common people, he mostly did his household chores himself. He did not have pride or feel ashamed to do the household work or fulfil his needs. In a Hadith it is stated that the work that was done by the common people in their homes, was also done by Sayyidina Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam. In some Ahaadith, examples of the chores are also given as in the hadith under discussion. In the Ahaadith it is also stated that he sewed his clothing himself, he repaired his shoes, mended his clothing etc.

In the above Hadith it is mentioned that he removed lice from his clothing. The research of the Ulama is that lice was not found in the body and clothing of Sayyidina Rasulullah Sallallahu'Alayhi Wasallam. It is evident that lice appears from the dirt of the body and multiplies with the perspiration. The whole body of Sayyidina Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam was Nur. There can be no questions of dirt, in the same manner his perspiration was like rose, that is used as a scent . How can it be possible for lice to live in the essence of rose. Therefore here it will mean that he looked for lice suspecting it from another person to have crept onto his clothing. The Ulama say that this was done to teach the Ummah, that when others see him doing this they will practise it more diligently.
