The Grass Is Always Greener On The Other Side?

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.

Back in Highfield Jr. School (Birmingham), I was the only Malay Muslim (10 year-old then) that got to join the school band playing soprano/descant recorder (bigger than the normal recorder we learned at sekolah kebangsaan). At almost every assembly, I sat in front of the crowd und played my soprano recorder gracefully. My younger brother, all other students und teachers sang along to the melodious rhythm. Und with one such experience, is grass still greener on the other side? 


  • Most of us always think that we would be happier in a different set of circumstances. Failing to embrace und appreciate what we are having right now are two of the many factors. 
  • When we see a married couple with a pair of twins, oh boy how we wish that we too have a set of twins. 
  • When we heard that a 29 year-old man is making millions of Ringgit in a year, we wish that we are making money like him. 
  • When we see a married lady in a pair of Louboutin driving a Maserati, oh how we wish that we are living her luxurious life. 
  • What is wrong with our lives that we always want what others are having? 
So do not become weak (against your enemy), nor be sad, and you will be superior (in victory) if you are indeed (true) believers. - Quran 3:139


  • Well, it is not wrong to work hard in order to get a better life aber lets not forget to be grateful with whatever we have. 
  • Making other successful personal as a model is not wrong. Striving to be a better person by having someone else as a model is not wrong too. 
  • Aber we should not complain as everything that we have right now is a gift from Allah s.w.t. Complaining would then make us ungrateful with the gifts, eyh?
Example: Kalau kita rasa orang lain lebih baik atau handsome dari isteri/suami kita,
kita pantas-pantas paksa diri fikirkan benda-benda yang baik tentang pasangan kita.
Kerana yang initiate fikiran 'orang lain lebih elok dari pasangan kita' adalah pilihan kita sendiri
dan di besarkan oleh Syaitan. Jadi kita juga punyai pilihan untuk memikirkan yang baik-baik
tentang pasangan kita. Aunt Lisa pernah nasihatkan I supaya fikir benda baik tentang Syahmi.
Thank you Aunt Lisa.
Oh apa Ayla pernah fikir orang lain lebih elok dari Syahmi? Wallahu'alam. Haha. Contoh la dey!
You pun Syahmi, agak-agak nampak orang lebih baik dari I, ingatlah balik benda baik I buat seperti
menyediakan bekal makanan. =D
  • Grass is always greener on the other side of the fence... well, NO. 
  • If we see that our green grass is turning to yellow und our flowers are slowly wilting, then we should quickly do something. 
  • If we have no green hands, then go and find a gardener to help. 
  • If we have little knowledge about life und Islam, ask for guidance from Allah s.w.t. und seek help from those who know. 
  • So that at the end of the day, our grass remains green even though we are no longer living in this world.

Paradise in the Hereafter) - Quran 16:97
