Unlimited reasons to Thank Allah and Love Him!

 Did you know...
That one of the best ways to increase love of Allah in our heart is to ponder over His favors upon us.

If you find it difficult, just consider the below statistics.

If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep … you are richer than 75% of this world.

If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace … you are the top 8% of the world’s wealthy.

If you woke up this morning with more health than illness …, you are more blessed than the million who will not survive this week.

If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation … you are ahead of 500 million people in the world.

If you can pray in mosque without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death … you are more blessed than three billion people in the world.

If your parents are still alive and still married … you are very rare.

If you hold up your head with a smile on your face and are truly thankful … you are blessed because the majority can, most do not.

If you can read this message … you just receive a double blessing in that some one was thinking of you, and furthermore, you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world that cannot read at all.

“ then which of the blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny?” Quran (55:13)

Thanking Allah for His blessings:

“And [remember] when your Lord proclaimed, ‘If you are grateful, I will surely increase you [in favor]…” (Qur’an, 14:7)

“Remember Allah during times of ease and He will remember you during times of difficulty” (Tirmidhi)

Thanking is recognizing and appreciating. The more you thank, the more you will see. The more you see how Allah has blessed you, you see His presence in your life and this in itself should create a certain soothing of the heart.

By thanking Allah, you are recognizing He is al-Wahhab (the Giver of gifts), ar-Razzaq (the Sustainer), al-Wadud (the Most Loving) and insha’Allah (God willingly) you will be able to recognize how He manifests His attributes and Names in your life.

Take the time out every evening to thank Allah for the blessings in your day – not only will you be overwhelmed because you will never be able to enumerate them, but you will truly recognize Allah’s presence in your life and you will start loving Him.

  "And those who believe are intense in their love for Allah". (2:165).
