Am I Grateful?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Uzma Jawed

الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي لَهُ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ فِي الْآخِرَةِ وَهُوَ الْحَكِيمُ الْخَبِيرُ
“[All] praise is [due] to Allah , to whom belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth, and to Him belongs [all] praise in the Hereafter. And He is the Wise, the Acquainted.”
[Al-Quran – Surah Saba: 1]

Shukr at the level of the heart:
I am grateful for being a Muslim, of belonging to a nice family, of all the blessings I do have. But to improve shukr at the level of the heart I need to increase my Iman (faith) and become more faithful and sincere.

 Shukr at the level of the tongue:
I like to say “Alhamdulillah”, and “haza min fadli  rabbi.” By doing this, I convey my Shukr at the level of the tongue. However, I need to do this more consistently, more regularly, and with more sincerity.

 Shukr at the level of the limbs:
 I can do this better by implementing the ahkaam of Allah (سبحانه وتعالى) , by bowing and prostrating to Him properly, punctually and sincerely at the  time of prayers. Also, by eating healthily, not procrastinating, sleeping early at night and waking up early in the morning, I will be able to utilize my body in the most effective manner. Insha’Allah!

About Quran Reflections

Al-Huda's branch at Khayaban-e-Sehar is one of the few Quran courses being regularly conducted in Karachi, Pakistan, where the mode of instruction and examination is English. The students and teachers have decided to upload their reflections on the Quran and class notes on this blog, in order to be available to a global audience for the latter's benefit and inspiration.

    This article by Uzma was very nice because it tells us about how to be grateful for the blessings that Allah has given us. We should be grateful for the nice family that we have been given by Allah.

    Alhamdolilah is a whole attitude, from very small to the largest of things we need to be grateful about. Alhamdolilah for the Quran, for the reminders.

    I learned that you have to be thankful to Allah [SWT] because He gives you every thing.

    eg: A house to live in, nice food to eat and has made us muslims!

    So we should say Al-hamdolilah!
