Think and Be Grateful!

Peaceful white tree on the snow

That is, remember every favor that Allah bestows on you.

Because He has folded His favors from the tips of the hair down to the bottom of your feet.

{….. And if you should count the favor of Allah, you could not enumerate them. Indeed, mankind is [generally] most unjust and ungrateful.}

Your Health, state security, food, air and water, clothing,
everything is available in our lives. You have the world but never realized it. You rule life, but you never know it.

{… and amply bestowed upon you His favors, [both] apparent and unapparent? …}

You have two eyes, one tongue, two lips, two hands and two feet.

{So which of the favors of your Lord would you deny?}

Do you think that, walking on both feet is something which is trivial, while the legs often become swollen when used incessantly without stopping?Do you think that standing upright on both calves is something easy, while both of them may not be strong and will break one day?

So realize,

How humiliated we are when sleeping soundly when many relatives around you are still unable to sleep because of the pain that is bothering him?

Have you ever felt bad feelings when you could eat delicious food and cold drinks when there were still many people around you who couldn’t eat or drink because of illness?

Think about how great the hearing function,  keeps you from deafness.Try to reflect on and touch your eyes that are not blind.

Remember that your skin is free from leprosy and suppuration.

And reflect on how powerful your healthy brain functions are and avoid humiliating madness.

Do you want to exchange your eyes for gold as big as Mount, or sell your hearing for one hill of silver? Do you want to buy palaces soaring high with your tongue that you are mute? Would you trade your hands for a string of pearls, while your hand is stumped?

That is, in fact, you are in matchless pleasure and bodily perfection, but you are not aware of it. You still feel restless, too late, sad, and nervous, even though you still have warm rice to eat, fresh water to drink, a quiet time to sleep well, and health to keep on doing.
You often think of something that does not exist, so you forget to give thanks to the existing ones.Your soul is easily shaken just because of material losses. In fact, actually, you still hold the key to happiness, have a bridge to deliver happiness, gifts, enjoyment, and so forth. Then think about all that, and then thank God!

{And in yourselves. Then will you not see?}

Think and reflect on what is in yourself, family, home, jobs, health, and what is available around you. And don’t belong to the class

{They recognize the favor of Allah ; then they deny it. And most of them are disbelievers.}
