Reflection 19th May 2009
Allah has chosen me to be a Muslim and have the blessing of Quran above so many others. How can I show gratitude and put Allah first in my life?
Indeed it has been a fadl of Allah and the best gift I have ever received. May we give it its Haqq. Gratitude to Allah can be shown by not only verbally thanking Allah for making me a Muslim and giving me an opportunity to study Kalam Allah-Quran but also doing practical shukar by submitting to and following Allah’s commands.
I should constantly reflect on how Quran has changed my life from a purposeless life to a purposeful life and insh’Allah that would further inculcate shukar in me. Moreover, it is utmost importance to also share the message of the Quran –the treasure we have received with others so that it can help their akhira also.
Neverthless really understanding inna lillahi wa inna ilahi rajion will insh’Allah allow me to put Allah first in the life. He Who gave everything to us in the first place can take everything away whenever He wishes. Also knowing the worth of Akhira versus duniya and actually trying to imagine akhira will further help me. Duas for gratitude is a must too.
