Gratitude is pausing to notice and appreciate the things that we often take for granted, like having a place to live, food to eat, clean water to drink, friends & family to communicate & to share our feelings, and even computer access.
We should think about the people who don’t even have the amenities to fulfill their basic needs. Desires come after the needs…Hope so, we all here Alhamdulillah are fulfilling our desires along with the basic needs. ALLAH SWT loves the people who admire HIM who shows gratitude towards HIM even after fulfilling their basic necessities.
We should be very very thankful as we all have eyes to see that is why you all are reading this post and am writing… We all have both hands in which we have grasped our cell phone… We all have legs to walk, a nose to smell, ears to hear, lips to express our feelings, our words, a tongue to taste the best foods and delight our taste buds… Just look at yourself… Just have a look… ALLAH SWT has made you so perfectly… How nicely you are assembled… Then why you would be a pessimist and ungrateful… There are a lot more blessings around us on which we should show our utmost gratitude to ALLAH SWT.
فَبِأَيِّ آلَاءِ رَبِّكُمَا تُكَذِّبَانِ تو
(اے گروہ جن وانس) تم اپنے پروردگار کی کون کون سی نعمت کو جھٹلاؤ گے؟
We should be much grateful to the countless blessings of ALLAH SWT!.. It’s ok! If we don’t get the thing we really want in our life… Maybe it’s not good for us… Or we’ll get a reward in this world or hereafter… Not even a single prayer gets rejected by ALLAH SWT…. Just be patient and show your gratitude… Must say ALHAMDULILLAH FOR EVERYTHING. MAY ALLAH SWT keep us all safe during this pandemic and count us all in HIS thankful personalities.
