* Today, let us be grateful for everything good in our lives. *
Let us thank Allah for the sunshine or the rain, for there are blessings in both. People love to complain about the weather, but today let’s simply be grateful.
Let us thank Allah for our parents, our siblings, and our children – there’s my own child, above, riding a camel 🙂 Sometimes our relatives can drive us crazy – sometimes we wish we could divorce our own families – but at the of the day, they are a part of us, aren’t they?
Le’ts be grateful to Allah for food and drink, leaves and grass, birds and beauty.
Let us be grateful for our bodies, for taking deep breaths, and feeling our hearts beat in our chests. People love to complain about their bodies as well, don’t they? “Oh, my joints are killing me today… I have the worst headache… Oh, my aching back…” – but today let’s just be grateful that we are alive, with the opportunity to laugh and love for one more day.
Let us thank Allah for iman, hidayah and haq (faith, guidance and truth).
SubhanAllah, Alhamdulillah, Allahu Akbar.
