Reliance on Allah (swt)

It's got quite cold in most parts of the world. I'm feeling rather bad for the birds and wondering how they survive the winter. I saw a dove today. It's tail was missing. A pigeon has been visiting me for a few weeks. It has hurt one of it's eyes. I think it can see out of it partially as it keeps looking at me as it walks across my balcony's railing. Making me feel pity for it and so I especially put some food for it.

That reminds me. There's a hadith about reliance on Allah (swt):
Narrated ‘Umar bin Al-Khattab: I heard Allah’s Messenger saying. “If you all relied on Allah with due reliance, He would certainly give you provision as He gives it to birds who issue forth hungry in the morning and return with full belly at dusk.”(At-Tirmidhi)

Alhumdulillah. :)

Well, here's a picture of warmer times. :D And yes, this one I've snapped.

^ Jazakillah khair. :D I was wondering to poll if the background is getting too boring. But I'm happy to hear people still like it. :P

It's a bulbul. I had always heard the name but never actually seen a real one. Took a while to search the name simply using the description. lol.

Well, the only thing I really knew about it is it's a bird that's very common in India/Pakistan. However, I had never seen one before and now I've realized there are plenty of them in my area. :D They have a sweet song too. Unfortunately though, the pigeons have attacked my balcony and I hardly ever get to see the bulbul. I doubt it gets any food here. The pigeons are always watching and waiting. Sometimes, they even sleep in my balcony. lol.

Also, thanks so much for your compliments. <3
