And He gave you of all that you asked for, and if you count the Blessings of Allâh, never will you be able to count them. [Surah Ibraheem / Ayah 34]
If someone gave you a beautiful, expensive new hat, wouldn’t you be grateful for the generous gift?
But shouldn’t you be even more grateful for the One Who gave you the head to put that hat on. [Shaykh Muzaffer Ozak]
How easily do we go around praising people for all that they given us. We accept gifts of humans thinking these people truly care for us, which could quite possibly be true. Yet, we are arrogant to Allah, and show no gratitude to Him for the endless blessings He bestowed upon us..
