Grateful

There is a saying in islam that we should be grateful for the five conditions that Allah S.W.T gave us before came the other five conditions.

this five for five doesn't stand for a "high five" or some kind of secret handshake like that of course, 
it is a phrase refers to conditions in our life and here is the conditions (i'm not quite sure that I put it in the right arrangement but i'm positive that these are all the five conditions before the other five) :

1. young before being old
2. rich before being poor
3. healthy before being ill
4. being given spacious time before our schedules got tight
5. Alive before we are deceased

usually, we tend to neglect and doesn't appreciate our current conditions and only complaint about it. but then it strike us out. the other five came along and made us realized that "damn, why did i wasted my previous privilege... just like that"

I am writing this post with a very sore throat and runny nose, I haven't went to the office for two days right now. The things that I hated the most from this disease that I got right now, is that, I have successfully spread it to my parents and my brother which now make the 4 of us were all in an unfit conditions. (great job bayu!)

Okey then, They say that the power of a moslems lies in their pray. for there is an immeasurable power in each and every pray that we say. and I believed that 100% to be true.

So... what do you do when things aren't as smooth as you're expected... you pray...

(easier said than done bay!)

well, how bout this... 

I have a west sumateran bloods running through my veins, here in Indonesia, people from West Sumatera or commonly known as "Minang" or "Padang" were branded as the most efficient ethnics when it comes down to money. "Minang" are known for their trading ability, which sometimes makes even the orientals have to think twice before dealing with us in any kind of deals.

now, ever heard about benefit cost analysis theory? according to wikipedia...

Cost benefit analysis (CBA), sometimes called benefit–cost analysis (BCA), is a systematic process for calculating and comparing benefits and costs of a project, decision or government policy (hereafter, "project"). CBA has two purposes:
  1. To determine if it is a sound investment/decision (justification/feasibility),
  2. To provide a basis for comparing projects. It involves comparing the total expected cost of each option against the total expected benefits, to see whether the benefits outweigh the costs, and by how much

CBA is related to, but distinct from cost-effectiveness analysis. In CBA, benefits and costs are expressed in monetary terms, and are adjusted for the time value of money, so that all flows of benefits and flows of project costs over time (which tend to occur at different points in time) are expressed on a common basis in terms of their "net present value."

I like to simplify it by saying if it doesn't worth it why bothers, just ignores it...

from Quran surah Luqman : 12

"And We had certainly given Luqman wisdom [and said], "Be grateful to Allah ." And whoever is grateful is grateful for [the benefit of] himself. And whoever denies [His favor] - then indeed, Allah is Free of need and Praiseworthy"

if it is already written in the holy quran, the instruction for us to be grateful to Allah. 

on what kinda ground can we ignore it then? 

none that i can think of...
