This video is very concise yet profound. I found myself sitting and staring at my computer screen reflecting. How many blessings do I receive from Allah each day? The faculties of understanding I have been given to write this sentence properly. The senses with which I hear and respond…

Allah has given me innumerable blessings and all I have to do in return is worship Him alone, for Allah deserves to be worshiped. He is Self-Sufficient and The Creator, while we are tiny insignificant human-beings in this vast universe with no power over it. Yet we still walk upon this Earth with arrogance and pride. Acknowledging the blessings Allah has bestowed upon us can lift the barrier that hinders us from worshiping Him as is His right.

Sit and reflect. Find a quiet place, close your eyes, try to think of ALL the blessings you have been given by Allah. Be grateful for them.

I will end with the example of the Prophet (Peace be upon him), who is the best of examples.

Mughira b. Shu’ba reported that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) worshipped so much that his feet were swollen. It was said to him: (Why do you undergo so much hardship despite the fact that) Allah has pardoned for you your earlier and later sins? Thereupon he said: May I not (prove myself) to be a grateful servant (of Allah)?  (Sahih Muslim – Book #039, Hadith #6772)
