Ramadan Reflections: Allah (SWT)’s Innumerable Blessings

The weather had gotten pretty hot and clammy compared to the earlier days of Ramadan. You would sit under a fan going at full speed and still sweat. The temperatures had shot up as we are nearing the peak summer months.

The class ended earlier today and I was waiting for my van, feeling hot and sweaty, almost dreaming about taking a bath right after I reach home from university. The mere idea of the cool, clean water felt oh-so-relaxing.

I couldn’t help but think about the people of Gaza at that moment. How many of them are deprived of a necessity as basic as clean water? So many are deprived of the luxury of having their own bathrooms to bathe in.

Allah (SWT) says in the Quran:

“If you tried to count Allah’s blessings, you would never be able to number them. Surely Allah is All-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” [Quran 16:18]

We are indeed surrounded by innumerable blessings that we take for granted.

Something as basic as clean running water is a massive blessing, that our brothers and sisters in some parts of the world don’t get to enjoy.

Let’s vow not to take any of our blessings for granted going forward and count them in not only when we are feeling low or depressed but also in happy, cheerful times.

Take a break from whatever you are doing and look around. What’s one blessing that you’ve been taking for granted all along and would want to be extra grateful for? Comment down below!
