Be Grateful

Be grateful.
We forget to be grateful. And how grateful should we be? We only need to imagine our lives without imaan to be grateful. Oh Guider of hearts, how much do You Love me that You have given me imaan?!
Everyday that you wake with imaan, you have a reason to be grateful. You could lose every single material possesion you own, those who are beloved to you, but know that if you wake and you have imaan, you have everything.
We don’t even realise how blessed we are, yet looking at those who don’t have imaan and it is so easy to appreciate. We need to remove this pride, this kibr that we have in our hearts and bow down and prostrate before the One who created us and chose us to be His slaves. What a beautiful title to hold. To be the slave of the One who created us and everything in the heavens and the earth.
Take care that you never look down on someone who does not have imaan, because you do not know his ending and you do not know your ending. It may be that he dies with imaan and you do not. May Allah save us! Be grateful to Him that you have imaan. Pray that you will die upon this beautiful, perfect way of life that He has gifted to us. Make no mistake, this religion is a gift. And we should treat it as a gift, with thankfulness and praise for the One who gifted us with this gift.

Be grateful.

  1. Thanks for sharing this. It always springs to mind how that new age spiritual method “The Secret” has tapped into this very same liberating principle of gratitude. Everyone has their own standards of what they are to be grateful for. The benchmark you set here is a very positive one: believing. As long as you are a believer, you can rejoice. In fact, strictly speaking, as long as you are alive, you can choose gratitude; and so many remarkable people have done and are doing so, despite life’s harsh difficulties. This proves beyond doubt, that gratitude is a choice. I hope we can all remember that. We have so much to be grateful for, including our own existence. Thanks again.
