Do we really take things for granted? Let’s see!
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)said:
“Take benefit of five before five:
*your youth before your old age,
*your health before your sickness,
*your wealth before your poverty,
*your free-time before your preoccupation,
*and your life before your death.”
(Narrated by Ibn Abbas and reported by Al Hakim)
When someone who loves you gives you a gift, “thank you” is not what’s most important to them but instead they want to know that the gift means something to you. So when they see you making use of that gift they are pleased. Likewise, the greatest way to thank Allah for the gift of Islam is to practice it.
