Man, being as forgetful as his Arabic name “Insaan” implies, is constantly needy of being reminded. Allah swt knows this well, of course, and thus reminds us in the Holy Qur’an:
“..and be not divided among yourselves, and remember with gratitude Allah’s favour on you” [3:103]
Do not forget the fact that all that has been granted to us is but a favour from our Creator; Allah owes us nothing, and He can take back His favours as and when He pleases. So think twice before you open your mouth to complain – be it about a serious matter or a trivial one – because I think, for every difficulty that has been set in your path, there are at least 100 blessings you have yet to be thankful for.
So Remember, with gratitude, Allah’s favour on you J and once you start counting your blessings, you’ll realize – that there really isn’t anything worth complaining about.
