Kubra Khan, who recently tested positive for COVID-19, wrote a heartfelt message about how she has learned to appreciate the ‘small things in life’.
Her performance in the ongoing drama Hum Kahan Ke Sachay Thay garnered a lot of praise. Fans had grown accustomed to seeing Khan on their television screens for the past few weeks. They were quite surprised to learn that the actress was fighting a battle with COVID-19.
Khan shared the news on Instagram with a touching message. “We as human beings have the funniest scales to measure what’s a big or a small deal,” she wrote. “We are waltzing around this world given temporarily to us, taking everything and everyone for granted.”
“Something as many would say ‘as small as smelling the morning tea’ or ‘breathing in a normal rhythm’… it’s basic, normal, isn’t it?” Khan added. “I tested positive for COVID-19 a little while ago. And all these ‘small things’ didn’t feel so small anymore. Grateful to Allah (SWT) I am on a road to recovery now. This morning I smelt a hint of my tea and bawled out in tears out of gratitude to Allah.”
“In the past week, I had chicken karahi, Nutella cake, chocolate brownies, all my favorites in front of me,” the actor wrote. “I couldn’t taste or even smell any of them. All that we work for weren’t able to lift me up, except for the ‘small thing’ of smelling chai that Allah (SWT) made possible.”
‘Small things are the big deals’
“I guess what I’m trying to say is it’s important to strive to live your best life and become the best version of yourselves. I do it myself and it’s normal to complain about ‘the big things’. ‘Paisa, kapra aur makaan‘ [Money, clothes and housing].”
“I do that too but do not disregard the luxuries we’ve been given by Allah ( SWT). Gratitude changed my life. Realizing the ‘small things are the real big deals’ changed my life. So here I am, in a shirt that I haven’t changed in the past three days, makeup-less, filterless, and energy-less but grateful to the max. Allah is Great,” she concluded.
In addition to her regal beauty and hypnotizing performances, Khan has made a special place in the hearts of those around her with her kind-hearted nature that never fails to spread positivity.
Earlier in an interview, Khan shared her views on using the celebrity card to get her way. Truth be told, her response was not what we expected. She may be well-known as a great actor, but there is much more to her than that.
A while back, Khan’s cute dance with Ahmed Ali Butt also went viral and won the hearts of fans and followers!
