“I’ve been married for 34 years and not fortunate to have a child. Over time, my husband and I accepted the fact that it’s going to be just the two of us. Rather than feeling not blessed, I took it as an opportunity to dedicate more of my energy to the works for Allah, spend more time traveling with my beloved husband and hone the gift of creativity which God has given me. If you feel not blessed, look around you…Your problem might not even half of what others are going through. We sometimes complain of having so little, while others have nothing at all. Pray for the unfortunate and give gratitude to the Almighty for the things He has given you. At the end of the day, it’s all about having a good heart.”
