Golden Windows
Golden Windows
The little girl lived in a small, simple house on a hill and as she grew she would play in the garden and look over the garden fence and across the valley to a wonderful house on the hill.

This house had golden windows, so golden that the little girl would dream of how magic it would be to live in a house with golden windows instead of an ordinary house like hers. Although she loved her family, she yearned to live in such a golden house and dreamed all day about how wonderful and exciting it must feel to live there.
When she got bigger, she asked her mother is she could go for a bike ride outside the gate. The little girl rode across the valley until she got to the gate of the golden house across on the other hill. As she dismounted, she focused on the house itself and was so disappointed as she realised all the windows were plain and dirty, reflecting nothing other than the sad neglect of the house that stood empty.
She turned, heart broken as she remounted her bike. As she glanced up she saw a sight to amaze her. There across the valley was a little house and its windows glistened golden as the sun shone on her little home. She realised that she had been living in her golden house and all the love and care she found there was what made her home the 'golden house'. Everything she dreamed was right there in front of her nose!
We imagine things to be rosier for others, little realizing that we can find happiness by appreciating what we actually have.
We seek pleasure outside the laws of Islam, little knowing that true contentment lies in following the rules laid out by Allah.
