DON’T BE SAD BY AID AL-QARNI
Sometimes, we need a book not to entertain or educate us, we need something to inspire during difficult times. Often, it is very hard a good book that could accomplish this goal. I have been to such situations when I was depressed and almost desperate. Today, I will tell you about a wonderful book that will make you feel good during the days when you need moral support. ‘Don’t Be Sad’ by Saudi Sheikh Iad Al-Qarni is the best book that was written to inspire people in desperate and difficult situations.
Sheikh Doctor Aid Al-Qarni is one of the most prominent Saudi clerics. He is also worldwide famous due to his religious knowledge and Islamic preaching. ‘Don’t Be Sad’ combines a lot of inspiring stories from the lives of prophets, kings, famous and great people. Of course, Qoran and The Prophet’s (S.A.W.) Sunna are the main sources of Al-Qarni’s knowledge and information. He narrates a story, and then, he derives wise lessons and inspiring conclusions. The book became a bestselling international masterpiece translated into dozens of foreign languages.
I didn’t buy this book. I was in a difficult situation, and a good person sent me this book to inspire and support me. To be honest, this book was the best healing and supporter for me during those days. I read it several times. Some parts of the book are eye-opening. I memorized and still remember the wisdom given by the author of ‘Don’t Be Sad’.
‘Don’t Be Sad’ by Dr. Aid Al-Qarni is a must-read book for everyone regardless of your religion. You might think that if a Saudi wrote a book, it must be purely based on Islam. This is not true. The Sheikh used different sources such as the Bible, loads of other religious books, and used the wisdom of various religions and cultures to write this book. Thus, regardless of your religion and culture, you will surely find this book very helpful and beneficial. Even if your situation is awesome right now, buy this book and keep it for the worst days that might come to any one of us. You never know how your destiny will turn for you tomorrow.
