THE BLESSING THAT YOU HAVE
Are You Thankful?
Allah ﷻ says
اَلَم نَجعَل لَّهُ عَينَين
Have we not made for him 2 eyes?
وَ لِسَانًا وَّ شَفَتَين
A tongue and two lips?
Wallahi, Ponder over the blessings of Allah ﷻ, just these three will make you realise how much you have been blessed!
If I were to ask you, give me both of your eyes and I’ll give you a Million for each, would any of you volunteer readily without hesitating?
No! Why?! Because you and I both know, that our eyes are integral to our daily lives,
Without your eyes, you can never look upon your family, nor the Mushaf, nor anything!
What about your tongue!?
If I offered to cut off your tongue in exchange for gold, would you take it?
Because you and I both know, that this tongue we have been blessed with,
Without it, we can never converse and be heard, nor can we recite Qur’an or recite Adkhaar!
What about our lips?
Did you even realise, that your lips help you keep your food in your mouth, help you close your mouth, help you to form sound and experience pleasure when you kiss your spouse!
Look at these gifts, that Allah ﷻ blessed us with!
But how ungrateful and arrogant we stand,
That we look at Haram, we speak, eat, and kiss that which is Haram!
If you want to truly realise the Ni’ma of Allah ﷻ, imagine yourself without things you have!
And Allah ﷻ says
وَإِن تَعُدُّواْ نِعْمَتَ اللّهِ لاَ تُحْصُوهَا
And if you were to count the blessings of Allah, never will you be able to count them.
If you want to truly show gratefulness to Allah ﷻ then use your eyes to read Qur’an!
Your tongue and lips to remember Allah ﷻ and spread Islam!
Allah ﷻ says
فَٱذۡكُرُونِیۤ أَذۡكُرۡكُمۡ وَٱشۡكُرُوا۟ لِی وَلَا تَكۡفُرُونِ
Remember me and I’ll remember you, and be grateful to me and don’t be ungrateful!
Will you not take heed, and stop showing ungratefulness and arrogance via your actions towards the same creator who blessed you with limbs?
Will you not turn back, moisten your eyes and tongue with remembrance and tire your arms and legs in obedience?
Remember that you will be questioned in regards to how you used your blessings in this Dunya!
and they will either testify for you or against you!
So take heed!
