19.This Ramadhaan – Be truly Grateful.

Most of us have probably glanced at the clock once or twice by now or atleast calculated how much time is left till Iftar. We do this as we anticipate the meal that we’ll break our fast with in sha Allah. Do you  realize how blessed you are? 

Today, take your time to think about all the blessings given to you by Allah without you having to ask. The eyes with which you are reading this message. Your limbs, the air the that you breath, your life. Your health, intellect, family, friends, Imaan, Islam…the list goes on. Whether you have all these and more or some of these, You will agree that you are blessed beyond measure. And if we were to count the blessings of Allah we would never be able to enumerate them.

So today, say Alhamdulillaah and decide to adopt the attitude of gratitude henceforth for the countless & ceaseless favours of Allah.

This Ramadan, get into the habit of being grateful to Allah and stop complaining.  Saying Alhamdulillaah is a part of being grateful, yet we show more gratitude by also using our blessings to do things that please Allah. Eg, Sadaqah, Speaking kindly to others, avoiding what Allah has prohibited, etc.

And tell you what, being grateful to Allah doesn’t just make you beloved to Him but also makes Him increase His blessings upon you. And who doesn’t want more??

☆Qur’anic Gems☆ Day 20. Ramadhan 1435.

Surah An-Naml, Verse 73:
وَإِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَذُو فَضْلٍ عَلَى النَّاسِ وَلَٰكِنَّ أَكْثَرَهُمْ لَا يَشْكُرُونَ

“Verily, your Lord is full of Grace for mankind, yet most of them do not give thanks.”

Let’s take a moment & think about the bounties of Allah…

•He is Ar-rahmaan- He forgives our sins no matter how plenty, At-tawwaab- He not only accepts repentance but loves for His slave to repent, Al-kareem- the most generous who doubles the reward of our good deeds but doesn’t do the same for a bad one. [28:84]
“And it is He who accepts repentance from His servants & pardons misdeeds, and He knows what you do”. [42:25]

•He created us in the best of forms (95:4), just so we would be satisfied, & give thanks. Every part of the human being is subhanallah so complex, the size of medical text books alone testify to that…
“And He gave you hearing, sight & hearts that you might give thanks” [16:78]

•Food, He gave us, in all types. He could have just given us 1 kind of fruit, but no, He chose to give us a variety to choose from & made them very sweet & succulent…that which we can’t make on our own.

“…whereby we cause to grow wonderful gardens full of beauty & delight, it is not in your ability to cause the growth of their trees” [27:60]

And indeed there are many, many, more & we couldn’t count them even if we wanted to [16:18]

” if you are thankful, I would give you more [14:7]. Another bounty in of itself, alhamdulillah. May Allah make us of those who are thankful to Him always, & live with the whole qur’an, in heart & in mind, ameen.
