niqab788Say Alhamdulillah. Now say it again. And now say it again.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, "There is no favour which Allah bestows upon His servant for which he says, 'Alhamdulillah', except that that which he gave was better than that which he took." (Narrated on the authority of Anas b. Malik (r) and collected by Ibn Majah with a hasan chain.)

So basically, despite all the incredible, innumerable and continual blessings and favours that Allah (jalla wa 'ala) bestows on His servants every single moment of their lives, all it requires is for me and you to show our thanks and gratitude to our Lord by sincerely uttering "Alhamdulillah" and - quite unbelievably - what we have just said and offered back to Allah i.e. our praising of Him 'azza wa jall, is MORE and better than all of what Allah 'azza wa jall gave us in the first place.

Allahu Akbar. The mercy of our Lord is just - SubhaanAllah - almost incomprehensible some times. How fortunate we are, how really really fortunate we are to be Muslims. Alhamdulillah.
