نظر الفضيل إِلَى رجل يشكو إِلَى رجل ما هُوَ فِيهِ من الضيق والضر والفقر، فأقبل عَلَيْهِ، وَقَالَ: يَا هَذَا أتشكو من يرحمك إِلَى من لا يرحمك.
Fudaayl saw a man complaining of his problems to another man who was not going through difficulty. So Fudaayl said to the man, are you complaining about the One who has mercy on you to the one who will not have mercy on you.
- When we go through problems we tend to complain about our problems, not realizing that the person we are complaining to cannot help us.
- Most of our problems– if one deeply reflects over their past — are actually mercies from Allah SWT.
