The Way I See The Sunshine


Sara is a writer. She believes determination and Trust in Allah Almighty give us the strength to face the challenges coming in our way.


Sitting in a cozy room

Wrapped a blanket around myself

In the dark night of winter

Thinking about my sprained ankle

Feeling of extreme pain

Everything turned upside down

The unusual feeling of sinking my heart

Irritated me, frustrated me

I started reading a magazine

Keeps on shuffling the pages

Suddenly I stopped

"My cancer is a gift"

I thought; Can pain really be a blessing....

An Australian businessman,

Named "Ali Banat", later became a humanitarian philanthropist

Died at the age of 33 of cancer

Never complain Allah Almighty for his disease

The attitude of Gratitude

He started MATW project in his life for needy people

Realized the meaning of life

A deep silence, I thought..

What is life?

Not more than a blink of an eye

Not more than a blink of an eye

Sara Shahid.

Hello Ann... thankyou for appreciating my work. That's a true story you know and sometimes we get frustrated and stressed when something happened unusual. So change of mindset in a positive way is really important.

There's always someone else worse off they say and that's a good way to put things in perspective. Food for thought and well crafted.
