I learned to always thank Allah for what we have before He takes it away from us. Be grateful for everything.
An example is like when you have a mansion and the other person has an average house. You be arrogant and greedy and don't thank Allah for what you have because everything is from Allah. Then Allah will destroy your mansion and you will then ask for repentance and forgiveness and thank Allah.
I think this means to be gratefull and thank allah for everything and don't take things for granted
I definetly agree with you be happy for what you have before its taken away frrom you.
One practical lesson I learned in the story of the man with two gardens is that you should never take things for granted and always be thankful for what you have already, you also shouldn't be greedy with what Allah blessed you with
nice practical lesson Adel
Yeah Adel nice comment
i'll remember to always donate and thank allah for what i have
Why thank you good man!
Forgot to give an example, one example is that when I get a good score on a test and someone gets better I should be happy with what I have because it could have been worse.
Also a nice example Adel
One practical lesson I learned was that everything is a blessing and don't brag because it might be taken away from you. One example is that if you get full marks on a test and you start bragging and maybe the next time you get a horrible grade.
One practical lesson is that you should never take all the credit for your work and say that this happened because of your hard work. You should always thank Allah and know that what you have is from him. An example is when someone scores a goal in soccer they shouldn't think that this happened because of them but they should Allah and be happy.
I learned that you should be grateful for what you have, and give more to the poor and needy, instead of wasting them n things you will enjoy for a time being. =D
I learned to not be greedy and to stop and reflect on what you have before asking for more. Then say alhamdillah because Allah SWT can make things worse for you. Also to have a pure intention on why you want something. For example, if your friend has new shoes you shouldn't go and buy a pair too, just to show off to others.
Insha Allah, I would like to further apply this in my life too. We should always say alhamdu lillah.
What i learned from the story of the man with two gardens is that you should appreciate what you have and not misuse it.
you shouldn't take your blessings for granted, some people think that they have been doing bad and committing sins and they still have so much like wealth for example,
and then they think, i haven't been punished that means there is no god, so in the end they misused a blessing and took it for granted.
They are misunderstanding that they are being BLESSED not NOT PUNISHED.
one leasson that i learned is that all of you achievements came from allah and no one else and if you try taking all that credit allah will take away all of your blessings
thats some good and deep stuff right there
Something I learned is not to under/over-estimate your friends.
You might think they can't accomplish anything, but then they do, or they WILL accomplish something, and they don't.
It's all from the will of Allah.
An example is when the rich friend thought that his religious friend would never have a good garden because he kept "wasting" his money on donations. Turned out he was wrong!
Yup Sarah! thats a good one. you should underestimate your friends because a lot of people do that and think they are better then their friends!
Something I learned is that you should never brag about how good you are. For example, if you're good at something and you brag about it, it can lead to arrogance because then you'll think why should I care about what he's good at? I'm better than him. You should never think like that because each person has their abilities. You might not have an ability that someone else might have because no one's perfect. In the story of the two gardens, the rich man thought his friend would never have a good garden because he kept "wasting" his money on the poor. As a result of how stingy the rich man was, he lost his two gardens. This is the punishment he got for being so stingy and this is something we should never have because this is one of the six diseases of the heart and it can cause us to go to hell fire.
All because one person is good at one thing, doesn't mean that person is better than the other. Plus we're ALWAYS making mistakes, and most of the time we don't realize we are anyways. So we really have absolutely NO right to brag because there is no reason to. We should focus on our own mistakes, not others' mistakes, so we can improve on ourselves first.
Good point! This is very important to know! The more we give, the more Allah gives back to us!
I learned to always be patient and thankful during Allah's tests. Patience is always good.
Example: Sometimes your peers might presure you into doing something you know is bad. This is a test of patience and faith.
The storey of the two gardens is really knowledgeable in many ways and one thing that I personally learned was to NEVER doubt Allah no matter what happens. Also on that note don't say anything to or meaning to say anything that you will regret later on.
One very exigent lesson that can be deprived out of the story is that Allah swt gives us good lives filled with blessings so we can focus on worship. Sadly the man in the story who thought he was getting these blessings by himself, though he was independent of Allah. He then got a huge punishment. This teaches me that Allah swt has blessed me with so many things, so i don't need to worry about them, instead i should fill my time with worship. It really bothers me to see how people blessed with mansions and cars, and money, are so caught up in this, they think the don't need Allah, while some people in places that are third world don't even have access to clean drinking water are content with what they have and use their time for worship. Its really, really sad. These people who are literally giving everything they have for Allah, knowing they will be rewarded in the akhira, are so content and happy. On the other hand, People who take common things like shelter, water, food are so unhappy. Everyone has heard of people who are so rich and famous, but end up killing themselves. They do this because they realize at a point that this is it. They feel empty. This emptiness, is not having Allah. So basically, i will try to apply being happy with what i have to ny life.
your right Sara you should never take your blessing for granted and you might have everything you ever wanted but you still feel that emptiness, this emptiness comes from not praying or being deprived of Allah swt
in the story it said one man would give some of his wealth to the poor.
i can relate to this because when Allah gives you something we should be grateful and also give some of our wealth to the poor! we shouldn't be greedy and say all the wealth came from us, instead we should say Alhamdulilah and be grateful for what we have.
Allah has given us so much and we don't deserve anything. you cant even count the amount of blessings Allah has given us and the least we can do is be grateful.
I learned that we should never forget that Allah gave us wht we have. We sometimes might get caught up in the blessing , that we forget to pray and thank Him. We should also benifit others with our advancement as that good deeds are more important than the mney and blessing. We can haev moeny and stuff, just dont get caught up
ONE IS THAT IF UR GOING TO THE WORLD CUP, AND UR SO EXCITED U DONT PRAY AND THANK ALLAH, U ALSO DONT SHARE UR TICKETS
I practical lesson is not to be greedy/selfish/jealous, when you have these things in your heart it makes you worry/care about what you have and what others have and not what you should care about.
One practical lesson I learned is to be grateful for what you have AND realize that none of it is yours, it is from the will and power of Allah (SWT). One man in the story was vain and boastful and didnt even give the slightest bit to the poor. He thought it was all his.
From the video, I learned that everything comes and goes. We shouldn't hold on to this world too tightly. If we get too caught up in it, we don't realize the purpose of life, we just get into the desire.
We should thank Allah (SWT) for everything we have, we have so much! We shouldn't have pride in our work or belongings because it is Allah who gave us all this.
Greediness is a major sin, therefore we shouldn't keep things to ourself. We should share things with everyone and shouldn't hesitate.
One example is, if we get a very good grade on our test and our friend didn't, we shouldn't have pride thinking that we did better than the other. Be thankful that you got a good grade and that it could've been worse.
This video showed me that we should always be thankful for everything we have. Even if it is a bad thing. We should always say Alhamdulillah even if it was a really bad thing because it couldve been worse. We should never be greedy or show off about anything we have. We should also donate a lot if we have lots of syuff for ourselves.
One example is if you were racing with your friend, and you one then dont judge them and say alhamdullilah and dont show off. They could be the one actually getting the good deeds and you dont know it. And at the end, you might be the one getting in trouble for something else.
I am from 7B
A lesson i had learned from the man with the two gardens is to be caring towards others, and not greedy.
As you can see on the news or hear from others there are many people that aren't as lucky as others. For instance take the children from Africa and then someone that lives in the US, there is a difference. Majority of people that live in Africa are unfortunately poor, while most Americans are wealthy.The thing that makes them two different is that Americans are wasteful, on the other hand Africans use every bit of resource they have, even though they don't have very many. Although Americans are luckily wealthy they shouldn't be greedy. We should learn from others and buy, use, eat, etc. what we need, only what we need, not want!
Yes Neda! We are so blessed, we should try to think of others too!
This video and lesson gave me a reminder to put my Allah before my Dunya. In the end, it really doesn't matter whether you have two gardens, or one garden. Or if you are rich or poor, black or white (or in between), or even smart, or not so bright. Because in Allah's eyes, that doesn't matter. As long as you keep faith in Allah, and don't get too caught up in your materialistic needs, and remember Allah, he will always be with you to help you in this world, so can be prepared.
in the whole video the arrogant guy who was saying that Allah didnt give him anything he earned he was punished at the end. i will keep this in my mind to be grateful of what i got and always remember it was all from Allah he willed it for me.
A practical lesson that is derived from the story of the man with two gardens shows that always be grateful fro what you have. Don't be greed. Just be happy for what you have. For example, when the greedy guy got 2 gardens he was bragging, arrogant, and obviouslsy greedy. Then Allah willed that the gardens will get destroyed and he had nothing!
The practical lesson that I derived from this story is never to be greedy. Be thankful for what you have and share it with the World because we have to remember that it isn't really ours, It's Allahs. And on the Day of Judgement all that counts is our good deeds.
I've learned that we should always give things to the poor and NEVER put ourselves in front of others and be arrogant.
one important and different thing i learned is that if a friend gives any advice either good or bad always try to listen and understand what is being told always learn the good things from everything.
The lesson that I have learned is to never be greedy and to share what you have with others. What goes around comes around. Allah will reward you on the Day of Judgment for your actions. You will most likely lose everything if you don't care of others and is greedy and selfish.
What i learned from this video is always give and never be selfish. Always remember to thank Allah [S.W.T] for what he has blessed you with before it gets taken away. Don't show off what you have to make others feel bad, because that means that there Iman is more stronger in Allah [S.W.T].
I agree with rama never rub something into someone's face becuz sooner or later your going to regret it
thats a really good reflection rama!
I learned that one should always take from their friends advice if its good because their the ones who understand you really well.
I learned that we should always be grateful for what Allah gave us. If he gave you a lot of wealth you shouldn't be arrogant.
I learned that even though these materialistic things are pretty cool, and nice to have, if you forget about Allah, and the afterlife, these things aren't worth it. If that means getting more materialistic things in place of the akira, don't do it. It is okay to have these things, but don't get too caught up in your arrogance because of it. Never forget Allah's powers. You have to remember that Allah can take away anything from you in a blink of an eye. The man with two gardens didn't realize what he was doing. As he grew more self-centered, he lost knowledge and remembrance of Allah, causing him to loose all he had.
not to be greedy and stingy and care more for the poor and to treat people the way they want to be be treated
plus it says in the Quran that if you do something to someone or treat a certain group or type of people an example is the poor then on the day of judgement the will treat you the same way or do the same thing to you plus Allah(swt) gives an example of it on the day of Judgement the ram with no horns the was beat by the ram with horns in the dunya will be in reverse on the day of Judgement and the ram with horns in the dunya will not have horns on the day of Judgement and the ram without horns in the dunya will have horns on the day of judgemet and will beat the other ram
One important other thing I learnt was that Allah can take away anything at any time he wants to!
I learned from this story that life is more serious than i thought. In this life you want everything, an i phone, a laptop, and more. But people don't realize whats coming in the afterlife.
Some lessons I learned from the story of the man and his 2 gardens are: humbleness, thankfulness, and generosity. These 3 points are really important to Islam and the man with the 2 gardens did not follow any of these then his gardens got destroyed. Also we should try our very best not to get obsessed with this dunnyah because there is an afterlife and we will return to our lord.
Example: If someone has something but its not so good like an old iPhone, and you have the latest one instead of boasting and showing off be thankful because Allah (SWT) can take anything from you at any time.
