Make Shukr to Allah

Allah Ta'aala  has given us so much. Just pause a moment and try to count on your fingers what He has given you. Actually, better not. It is in vain, you do not have enough fingers. We cannot count the blessings of Allah upon us. 

Human beings get charged for using almost everything. Electricity, petrol, food, water etc etc. Now think. Has Allah Ta'aala ever charged us for using the light of the sun? Has He charged us for how much we walk using the feet He granted us? Does He charge us for the land that we use to grow food on and live on? If Allah Ta'aala were to charge us for all the things He granted us, would we ever be able to pay? In fact, we would have to spend more than a lifetime first to make a list of all the things we have been bestowed.

But one things really comes to mind...

At times, when I see what kinds of things other people believe in, the wrong aqaaid they have, the false beliefs they hold on fast to, I feel a sense of extreme gratefulness to Allah Ta'aala, that Alhamdu Lillah, He guided me onto the straight path.

So, let's never forget to make shukr to Allah... and if at times there is a little pain and loss, think about those necessities that Allah has left for us... and how life would be even more painful with them. And never ever forget how He has blessed you with the most precious gift of all, Emaan!

فَاذْكُرُونِي أَذْكُرْكُمْ وَاشْكُرُوا لِي وَلَا تَكْفُرُونِ

And remember Me, I will remember you, and be thankful to Me and do not be ungrateful to Me.

 Surah 2:153
