Forgotten Blessings.

A few days ago I read something a sheikh had posted that really touched my heart, he said life would be very easy if we understand that we wont get everything we want in this world, we should be thankful with what we have, be content and enjoy the existing blessings. They are so many people praying to get what we want yet we take them for granted and keep winning over what we dont have.  

This really got to me and made me at ease realizing we are blessed with so many things and many of them are gifted without even asking!

So this post is a short reminder to be thankful for all the little things we overlook, the ones we fail to relaize and forget to thank Allah for.

Thank Allah for the lovely gift of Islam which made life so peaceful and easy.

For accepting our good deeds.

For forgiving our sins.

For the ease after difficulties.

For the cure after sickness.

For all the answered prayers and fulfilled wishes.

For the happiness after sadness.

For the success after failure.

For being free of physical disabilities.

For having delicious meals 3 times a day.

For the air-conditioned house and the cozy bed you sleep in.

For the safe neighborhood you live in.

For the parents who love you

For the brother who cares for you.

For the sister that supports you.

For the friend who guides you.

And for all the countless things that makes your life beautiful.

And just remember, He gave you so many things without asking, what makes you think He wont give you what you asked Him for? ๐Ÿ™‚

He swt says:

[ูˆุฅุฐ ุชุฃุฐู† ุฑุจูƒู… ู„ุฆู† ุดูƒุฑุชู… ู„ุฃุฒูŠุฏู†ูƒู…]

[And [remember] when your Lord proclaimed, ‘If you are grateful, I will surely increase you [in favor]]

Thank you Allah for everything โ™ฅ

  1. Ibn โ€˜Abbรขs narrated: I heard the Messenger of Allah (SAW) saying, โ€œIf a son of Adam had a valley full of gold, he would desire to have two. Nothing can fill his mouth except the dust (of his grave). Allah turns with mercy to him who turns to Him in repentance.โ€ [al-Bukhari (6437) and Muslim (1049)]
    It is human nature to feel dis-satisfaction all the time. However, Al-hamdulilah we have the cure for that in our Religion.

  3. Jazak Allah khair for the much needed reminder! โ˜บ
    The Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam) has taught us a beautiful dua to be recited after every prayer: “Allahumma a’inni ala dhikrika, wa shukrika, wa husni ‘ibadatika”
    (O Allah, help me remember You, to be grateful to You, and to worship You in an excellent manner). [Abu Dawud]

    Don’t worry the Christians with telling them about the similarities, I give dowa and I’ve found that this only makes them more comfortable in their false beliefs. It’s always better to teach them of our differences I’ve found, and our differences are far greater and more important for them to be aware of than our similarities.
    May Allah increase us in goodness, continue to guide us on the straight path and forgive our sins. ุงู„ู„ูŽู‘ู‡ูู… ุขู…ูŠู†

  5. Also, remember as Muslims, our beloved Prophet ุนู„ู‡ ุตู„ุงุฉ ูˆ ุณู„ุงู… always wanted us to differentiate ourselves from the Jews and Christians and often highlighted our differences, in fact there are many aspects of the Sunnah we practice simply to differentiate ourselves from them ุณุจุญุงู† ุงู„ู„ู‡ ุงู„ุญู…ุฏ ุงู„ู„ู‡ ู„ุง ุฅู„ู‡ ุฅู„ุง ุงู„ู„ู‡ ูˆ ุงู„ู„ู‡ ุฃูƒุจุฑ

    • This is just part of the honour is being a Muslim, being upon the truth is that we are not compelled to learn the faiths of others, but others are compelled not by us but by Allah! and His messenger to submit in Islam. We have truly been honoured in ways we cannot even comprehend ุณุจุญุงู† ุงู„ู„ู‡
      It makes me sad when I remind myself of this, because too often do I wrong myself.

    • “Call to them in wisdom and beautiful preaching” Al-Qur’an. They often lack much of the basic principles of our faith, i.e our belief in Jesus and his second coming, his miraculous birth, that we belief in the Injeel Gospel as it was ‘pure’ not as it is today etc, sometimes it’s important to inform them of this, but when Muslims draw more on the similarities rather than our differences they tend to think their beliefs are ok, because they haven’t been told what is wrong with their beliefs and why we differ, and this is where the reward and your duty lies.

  6. Once, an islamic scholar was approached by an old lady ( a cleaner of the building where the scholar was giving speech).
    The old lady asked, “Why, for many years, have I not been help by Allah? (getting a better salary or job, wealth etc.. ) I’ve prayed to Him. I’ve done my part”

    the scholar asked ” Do you have children mam’?”
    the lady answered “Yes, now they’re studying abroad.”

    The scholar replied ” Well then, see! Allah gives what’s best for you, not what you want. You may not have wealth, but your son is doing great! Right?”
