Gratitude and Optimism – By Waseem Alkelani

Islam teaches us to be grateful
Islam teaches us to be optimistic

True believers are always grateful
for every single day they live

They are always grateful
and that’s why they are always joyful

They thank their creator for everything
Whenever they eat and whenever they drink

They are always optimistic
About life and they are also realistic

To them every day is a new day
Full of aims and positive things to say

They also look at the bright side
In any problem to set it right

If you ask them “How is life?”
They will say “We thank Allah and we shall survive”

This is the reason they always smile
And they are always willing to take the extra mile

In spreading this optimism
And trying to fight and eliminate pessimism

This is the source of happiness in their hearts
This is the source of peace in their minds

Islam encourages us to be like this
And not to be the opposite or even less

Gratitude and Optimism are good for you
They are two things that you should do
