Instilling Qanaah in Our Lives

  • Qana’ah is the feeling of contentment with the blessings Allah s.w.t. has bestowed upon us, and the absence of jealousy from our hearts. Those who practice qana’ah are confident of Allah’s decree, and are content with whatever size and amount of sustenance they are blessed with.
  • Such contentment affirms their belief in Allah’s decree, and thus they would never place the blame on fate. They firmly believe that by having qana’ah, Allah s.w.t. has guaranteed their sustenance. They do not whine, nor do they complain despite their situation where they may have less than others. They would rather continue to strive and work hard, whilst making dua in search of a better life.
