Taken from: http://www.islamicboard.com/advice-support/134295275-just-say-alhamdulillah.html brother Marwen says: ""Assalamu alaykom ! Alhamdulillah ! I just wanted to remember you to say always alhamdullilah (thank you Allah !) I recently felt myself very upset and sad. I'm a new diplomed, I looked for a job for months without result. I have no job. I have no money. I'm getting older, and I want to help my parents, but I have nothing to do . I want to be married to save myself from fitna, but still not having a job and money to found a family. Conclusion : I'm a total failure ! But, while i was making dark thoughts (), I looked at myself and found that Allah gave me many gifts so why am I upset. Ok, no job, no success, no money, but : I have a good health (I think ), there is many people who can't stand up because they are sick, but thank God i can walk and i can go to the mosque. Many people cannot eat what they want, not because they are poor, but because they have bad stomack, but thank to Allah, I can eat what I want : I mean I eat a lot of cookies, and anytime I want. I am a muslim, thank to allah, so i have a good chance to go to jannah, but a lot of people don't know about islam, or are so stubbern to enter in islam. Allah gave me a lot of great things, so I have to say Alhamdulillah every second. I don't really have to be sad Alhamdulillah. I wanted to share this feeling with you brothers and sisters. So remember the gifts sent to you by allah and say : Alhamdulillah !""
