"Don't Be Sad" is a good book written by Aaidh ibn Abdullah al - Qarni. In the next posts I will try to insert some beneficial sentences extracted from this book, inshaalah.
You can download free of charge this splendid book from here:

Contemplate and be thankful

Remember the favors of Allah upon you and how they surround you from above and below - indeed, from every direction.
Health, safety, nourishment, clothing, air, and water - these all point to the world being yours, yet you do not realize it. You possess all that life has to offer, yet remain ignorant.
You have at your disposal two eyes, a tongue, lips, two hands and two legs.
Can you picture yourself walking without feet?...
Would you sell your ability to hear and see for the weight of Mount Uhud in gold, or your ability to speak for huge castles? You have been given abundant favors, yet you feign ignorance... You think about what you do not have and are ungrateful for what you have been given. You are troubled by a loss i wealth, yet you have the key to happines and many blessings. Contemplate and be thankful.

The past is gone forever

Do not live in the nightmares of former times or under the shade of what you have missed. Save yourself from the ghostly apparition of the past...Reading too much into the past is a waste of the present. Former days are gone and done with, and you benefit nothing by carrying out an autopsy over them, by turning back the wheels of history.
Our tragedy is that we are incapable of dealing with the present: neglecting our beautiful castles, we wail over dilapidated buidings. If every man and every jinn were to try jointly to bring back the past, they would most certainly fail. Everything on earth marches forward, preparing for a new season - and so should you!

Today is all that you have

Yesterday has passed with its good and evil, while tomorrow has not yet arrived. Your life's span is but one day, as if you were born in it and will die at the end of it. With this attitude, you will not be caught between an obsession over the past, with all its anxieties, and the hope of the future, with all its uncertainty. Live for today. During this day you should pray with a wakeful heart, recite the Qu'ran with understanding, and remeber Allah, the Exalted, the Almighty, with sincerity. In this day you should be balanced in your affairs, satisfied with your allotted portion, concerned with your appearance and health.
Organize the hours of this day, so that you make years out of minutes and month out of seconds. seek forgiveness from your Lord, remember Him, prepare for the final parting from this world, and live today happily and at peace.
Live today free from sorrow, bother, anger, jealousy and malice.

Leave the future alone until it comes

Be not hasty and rushed for things that have yet to come to pass. Do you think it is wise to pick fruits before they become ripe? Tomorrow is non-existent, having no reality today, so why should you busy yourself with it? Why should you have apprehensions about future disasters? Why should you be engrossed by their thoughts especially since you do not know whether you will even see tomorrow?
The important thing to know is that tomorrow is from the world of the unseen, a bridge that we do not cross until it comes. Who knows, perhaps we might never reach the bridge, or the bridge might collaps before we reach it, or we may actually reach it and cross safely.
Many are those who cry because they see themselves starving tomorrow, falling sick after a month, or because they fear that the will come to an end after a year. Someone who has no clue as to when he will die (which is all of us) should not busy himself with such thoughts.
Since you are absorbed in the toils of today, leave tomorrow until it comes.

How to deal with bitter criticism

Remain firm and patient when facing their insults and criticism. If you are wounded by their words and let them have an influence over you, you will have realized their hopes for them. Instead, forgive them by showing them the most beautiful of manners. Turn away from them and do not feel distressed by their schemes. Their disapproval of you only increases you in worth and merit.
Verily you will not be able to silence them, but you will be able to bury their criticism by turning away from them and dismissing what they have to say.
In fact, you will be able to increase them in their rage by increasing your merits and developing your talents.
If you desire to be accepted by all and loved by all, you desire the unattainable.

Do not expect gratitude from anyone

Allah, the Almighty, created His slaves so that they may worship and remember Him, and He provided sustennance for them so that they may be grateful to Him. Nevertheless, many have worshipped other than Him and the masses are thankful not to Him, but to others, because the characteristic of ingratitude is widespread among human beings. So, do not be dismayed when you find that others forget your favors or disregard your kind acts. some people might even despise you and make you an enemy for no other reason than that you have shown them kindness.
Be at peace if you are requited with ungratefulness for the good you have done. Rejoice in your knowledge that you will be rewarded from the One Who has unlimited treasures at His disposal.
This is not to say that you should refrain from performing acts of kidness towards others: the point is that you should be mentally prepared for ingratitude.
Most human beings are ungrateful to their Lord, so what treatment should you and I expect?

Doing Good to Others Gives Comfort to the Heart

The first person who benefits from an act of charity is the benefactor himself, by seeing changes in himself and in his manners, by finding peace, by watching a smile from on the lips of another person.
If you find yourself to be in difficulty or distress, show kindness to others, and you will be the first to find solce and comfort. Give to the needy, defend the opressed, help those in distress, and visit the sick: you will find that happiness surrounds you from all directions.
An act of charity is like perfume - it benefits the user, the seller and the buyer. If you suffer from depression, an act of charity will have a more potent effect on your sickness than will the best availble medicine.
Even when you smile upon meeting others, you are giving charity. The Prophet (PBUH) said: "Do not dismiss certain act of kindness by deeming them to be insignificant, even if is to meet your brother with smiling face."

Repel Boredom with Work


Those who have nothing to do with their lives are the same people who spend most of their time spreading rumors and falsehood, mainly becuse their minds are devoid of beneficial thoughts: "They are content to be with those 9 the women ) who sit behind ( at home). Their hearts are sealed up ( from right guidance ) so they understand not." (Qur'aan, 9, 87 ).
When you find yourself to be idle, prepair for depression and despair, because idleness llows your mind to wander in the past, the present and the future, with all their difficulties.
Perform fruitful acts instead of being idle, for idleness is a slow and veiled form of suicide.
Being inactive means being negligent of one's duties. Idleness is an expert thief and your mind is its victim.
Therefore get up now and say a prayer or read a book; praise your Lord, study, write, organize your library, fix something in your house, or benefit others so that you can put an end to your inactivity.
Destroy boredom by working.

Do not be a Mimicker

Do not transform yourself into someone who you are not: do not mimic others. Many are those that feign to forget their own voices, movements, idiosyncrsies and habits, in order to imitate others in their ways. Among the consequences of such behavior are artificiality, unhapiness, and a destruction of one's own entity.
From Adam to the last born baby, no two people are exactly the same in appeareance. Why then should they be the same in mannerism and tastes?
You are unique - none had been like you in the past and none shall be like you in the future. You are totally different from X or Y, so do not force upon yourself the blind folloowing and imitation of others. Go forth according to your own nature and disposition.

Pre-ordainment

"No calamity befalls on the earth or in yourselves but is inscribed in the Book of Decrees - before We bring it into existence" (Qur'an 57:22)

The pen hs dried, the pages have been lifted: all events that shall come to pass have already been written.

"Nothing shall ever happen to us except what Allah has ordained for us." (Qur'an 9, 5)

What ever has befallen you was not meant to escape you, and whatever has escaped you was not meant to befall you. If this belief were to be firmly ingrained in your heart, then all hardship and difficulty would become ease and comfort.
The Prophet ( Blessings and peace be upon him) said: "Whoever Allah wishes good for, He inflicts him with hardship."
Surrender yourself: believe in preordainment, before pangs of anger and regret overwhelm you. If you have done all that was in your power, and afterwards what you had been striving against still takes place, have firm faith that it was meant to be. Do not say, "Had I done such-and-such, such-and-such would have happened." Rather say: "This is the decree of Allah, and what He wishes He does".

Verily, with hardship, there is relief

"Verily, with hardship, there is relief" (Qur'aan 94, 6)
Tears are followed by a smile, fear is replaced by comfort, and anxiety is overthrown by serenity. When the fire was set for him, Prophet Ibrahim (may pece be upon him) did not feel its heat because of the help he received from his Lord.
Therefore do not be in despair: it is imposible for things to remain the same. The days and years rotate, the future is unseen, and every day Allah has matters to bring forth. You know it not, but it may be that Allah will afterwards bring some new things to pass.

Convert a lemon into a sweet drink

An intelligent and skilful person transform losses into profits: whereas, the unskilled person aggravates his own predicament, often making two disasters out of one.
The Prophet (bpuh) was compelled to leave Makkah, but rather than quit his mission, he continued it in Madeenah - the city that took its place in history withh lightning speed.
Therefore, if you are afflicted with a misfortune, look on the bright side. If someone were to hand you a glass full of squeezed lemons, add to it a handful of sugar. And if someone gives you a snake as a gift, keep its precious skin and leave the rest.
"And it may be that you dislike a thing that is good for you..." (Quran 2, 216)
Look at the other side of a tragedy - a circumstance of pure evil does not exist, and in all situatuins one can find goodnessand profit and reward from Allah.

Enough for you is your home

When you isolate yourself from things that divert you from Allah's obedience, you are givinh yourself a dose of medicine, one that doctors of the heart have found to be a most potent cure. When you seclude yourself from evil and idleness, your braiin is stimulated into action. The results are increases in faith, repentance, and rememberance of Allah, the Almighty, All-Compassionate.
However, some gatherings are not only recommended, but necessary: the congregational prayer, circles of learning, and all gatherings of righteousness. As for gatherings wherein frivolity and shallowness prevail, be wary of them. Take flight from such gatherings, weep over your wrongdoing, hold your tongue, and be content within the bounderings of your home. By mixing with others based on foolish motives, you endanger the stability and soundness of your mind, for the people you indiscriminately mix with are likely to be experts at wasting time, masters at spreading lies, and skilled in spreading both trouble and mischief.
So, use your time well and save your life from being wasted. Hold your tongue from backbiting, free your heart from anxiety, and preserve your ears from profanity.

Your Recompense Is with Allah

When Allah, the Exalted, takes something away from you, He compensates you with something better, but only if you are patient and seek your reward from Him. The Prophet (blessings and peace be upon him ) said:
"Whoever has his eyesight taken away from him, and is then patient, he will be compensated for it with Paradise."
So, do not feel excessive sorrow over some misfortune, because the One Who decreed it has with Him Paradise: recompense and a great reward.
those that are afflicted in this world and are close to Allah will be praised in the highest part of heaven:
"Peace be upon you, because you persevered in patience! Excellent, indeed is the final home!" (Qur'aan, 13, 24)
Truly, the life of this world is short and its treasures are few. The Hereafter is better and everlasting, and whosoever is afflicted here shall find his reward there. And whosoever works hard here shall find ease there. As for those who cling to this world, who are attached to it, and who are in love with it, the hardest thing for them to bear would be to lose the world's comfort and riches: they desire to enjoy this life alone. Because of this desire, they don't react to misfortune as well as others do. What they perceive around them is this life alone: they are blind to its impermanence and insignificance.
O, afflicted ones, if you are patient yyou lose nothing; and though you may not perveive it, you are profiting. The person who is afflicted with hardship should reflect upon the outcome in the Hereafter, the outcome for those who are patient.

Faith Is Life Itself

The only mens of purifying the heart and of removing anxieties and worries from it is to have complete faith in Allah, Lord of all that exist. In fact, there can be no true meaning to life when one has no faith.
In proportion to the level of your faith - strong or weak, firm or wavering - will you be happy and at peace.
"Whoever works righteousness, wether male or female, while he is a true believer; verily, to him We will give a good life ( in this life with respect, contentment, and lawful provisions). And We shall pay them certainly a reward in proportion to the best of what they used to do. (i.e. Paradise in the Hereafter)."
(Qu'raan 16, 97)
The "good life" that is mentioned in this verse refers to having a firm faith in the promise of our Lord and a steady heart that loves Him. People who lead this "good life" will also have calm nerves when afflicted with hardship; they will be satisfied with everything that befalls them , because it was written for them, and because they are pleased with Allah as their Lord, with Islam as their Religion, and with Mohammed as their Prophet and Messenger.

Extract the Honey but Do Not Break the Hive

Everything that has gentleness in it is beautified, and whatever lacks is spoiled. When you meet someone, giving him a bright smile and a kind word, you are displaying a characteristic of the truly successful man, a characteristic that even a bee exhibits. When a bee lands on a flower (doing so for a practical purpose) it does not destroy it, because Allah rewards gentleness with that which He does not give for harshness.
There are certain people whose personalities are like magnets, attracting everyone who is nearby, simply because they are loved for their gentle talk, their good manners, and their noble deeds.
Winning the friendship of others is an art that is mastered by those that are noble and pious; a circle of people constantly surrounds them. Their mere presence in a gathering is a blessing, and when they are absent they are missed and asked about.
They suck out malice from others with their sincerity, forgivness and gentleness. They forget evil that was enacted upon them and persevere the memory of kindness received.

Verily, in Rememberance of Allah Do Hearts Find Rest

Rememberance of Allah is His Paradise on earth and whoever does not enter it will not enter the Paradise of the Hereafter. Rememberance is not only a safe haven from the problems and worries of this world, but it is also the short and easy path to achieving ultimate succes.
When you remember Allah, clouds of worry and fear are driven away, and the mountains that make up your problems are blown away.
We should not be surprise when we hear that people who remember Allah are at peace. What is truly surprising is how the negligent and unmindful survive without remembering Him.
O whosever complains of sleepless nights and is in shock over his misfortune, call out His Holy Name.
To the degree that you remember Allah, your heart will be calm and cheerful. His rememberance carries with it the meaning of total dependence upon Him, of turning to Him for aid, of having good thoughts about Him, and of waiting for victory from Him.
Repeat His beautiful blessed name, and mention Him as being alone worthy of worship.

Accept Life as It Is

The pleasures of life are short-lived, and more often than not, they are followed by sorrow. Life means responsibility, a journey wherein change is constant and difficulties are relentless in their onslaught.
You will not find a father, a wife, or a friend who is free from problems. Allah has willed for this world to be filled with two opposites: good and evil, righteousness and corruption, happiness are for Paradise;evil, corruption, and misery are for Fire.
So live accordingly to your reality without always envisioning the ideal life, one that is free from worry and toil. Accept life as it is and adapt accordingly to all circumstances. You will not find in this world such things as the flawless companion or the perfect situation, because flawlessness and perfection are qualities that are foreign to this life.

Allah Alone is sufficient for us!

"Allah Alone is sufficient for us and He is the Best Disposer of affairs." (Qur'an,3, 173)
By leaving your affairs to Allah, by depending upon Him, by trusting in His promise, by being pleased with his decree, by thinking favorably of Him, and by waiting patiently for His help, you reap some of the greater fruits of faith and display the more prominent characteristics of the believer. When you incorporate these qualities into your character, you will be at peace concerning the future, because you will depend on your Lord for everything. As a result, you will find care, help, protection and victory.
