The one on serenity..
A patient told me yesterday: "I am now at peace with everything".
Hearing her, I had to put the consultation on hold, and make sure I heard her right.
She had converted to islam just a few weeks ago.. Her passion about it put me to shame..
When she spoke about how she tries to overcome her working hours to " find a corner and pray on time", and how she carries her mus7af with her to read whenever she gets a chance.. How, even now, when she came to me feeling unwell and dizzy.. It didn't really matter to her and she "did not come here to complain, I just want to make sure everything's ok"..
Serenity radiated from her..
It baffled me. After a day of seeing unhappy people, complain about the smallest of things.. Over and over again.. You kinda forget that there are people out there who have found that light which makes them happy, and content..
To that particular lady, it was embracing islam.
What's serenity to you?
- to counting our blessings xx
