I THANK ALLAAH

I thank Allaah because…
As I open my eyes this morning,
countless eyes are being closed,
because the pupils are fixed, dilated
because they are lifeless.

I thank Allaah because…
As I kiss my baby goodbye,
handing him over to the nanny,
a mother is kissing her own
for the last time,
handing him over to the morgue.

I thank Allaah because…
As I am staring at the pantry
thinking of what to choose for breakfast
some people are working really hard
to get just one meal today.

I thank Allaah because…
As I complain of my weaknesses
and fuss about my failures,
there are better people out there
who are not as blessed as I am.

Alhamdulillaah.
I thank You Allaah.
