You’re Unique And Special!Bashir Oyetunji February 24, 2018 1 COMMENT
See the sun, moon, and stars, see how special they are in their different ways.
So also are the flowers. The roses, tulips, azaleas, etc. They’re all lovely creatures!
Look at all other plants. You’d see they are all created for specific and special purposes.
All these lovely creatures have awesome ways that they serve their purpose of being created.
Just like the sun, moon, stars, and flowers, you are also special, different, adorable, and useful in your own ways.
You are magnificent. You have purposes. With your one or two skill, you are just the special being you are.
Why think you are a waste? No, you are not. Have you forgotten you would be raised in the life to come just like every other human being will be raised?
Who says you are a waste? You are Allah’s sign on earth. You are His creation.
Relax, and do not get worried. Now think about the following.
- Your Purpose May Be Different From That Of Another Person
The sun shines in the day and is appreciated by all. It illuminates the world, acts as a drier, and shines on the plants for respiration.
The moon shines at night and denotes the passing of months. It also illuminates the world at night.
The stars are special in their sparkles to the sky. They act as reflectors for people who reflect by looking up the sky at night.
All of these creations have even much more functions than anyone could say.
You are also a special-purpose creation just like the stars and others. You have your different roles to play—in your family, in your neighborhood, in your community, in your nation, and in the world.
Whatever role you play should be appreciated.
Your special ability might be in your affable nature. It might be in your interaction mode. You might be an influencer through the way you solve people’s issues. Your secret might just be anywhere (and never in things that are in disobedience to Allah).
If you are in the position of the sun, whereas you should be in the position of the stars, then you would’ve been a misfit.
Whatever your position, role, contribution, and achievement, you are different and special, unique and worthy.
The role of forming a nation through your family is mammoth. The role of producing for the benefit of mankind is weighty. The role of serving the world and making it a better place is heavy. Never look down upon yourself in any way.
- You Will Be Raised Up On The Resurrection Day
The realization of the Day of Resurrection is a message to you that you’re indeed here for a purpose. Once you’re human, then you qualify to be admitted into Paradise. The crux for you then is to earn the Paradise through Allah’s mercy and being dutiful to Him.
So, why look down upon yourself when you know that you have a purpose of worshipping Allah on earth. This is a great purpose which supersedes many other things. You should rise up, worship, feel good, and meditate about goodness. You should not let any feeling of inferiority dissuade you from your primary purpose of worship.
- Don’t Give Up. Work To Change Yourself
Perhaps what’s making you look down on yourself is that you don’t value your ability.
Of course, you have your own special abilities. Perhaps it is that you’ve not yet mastered them. Just keep on learning and you’ll get there.
Work to change any mistake you’ve committed. You could be like the great ones you admire. In fact, you can be better. Just do not be complacent, continue working even for years. Work, work, and work. Never stop working.
Even when you seem to have stopped, know deep down yourself that you’ve not stopped and that you still aim for the top in your field, for the best, for breaking grounds in your field, and for impacting in your own set goal.
Never look down upon yourself because you are a worker but not a producer.
You are special.
Never look down upon yourself for any reason.
You are special.
Be positive about yourself always.
Utilize the remaining allotted time you have on earth judiciously.
Work and work hard.
Strive and strive hard.
Be determined and all smiles every time.
Love yourself and everyone around you.
