Count your blessing's and your trouble's will go away

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

For me, it really is the little thing's in life that make me happy. Anyone can enjoy an exotic holiday (it's not hard!) but it's true contentment when you can revel in the day to day. That's why i'm so glad to have stumbled across this video.

This little girl is on to something too... daily affirmation

Imagine if we all counted our blessing's when we woke up and
before we went to bed, i'm sure we'd all be much happier people or at least, content with what we have. Bringing our favourite pieces of the happy jigsaw to the front of our mind, and leaving the negative's in the box.

Alhamdulilah (All praise is due to Allah). 

We should give thanks to Allah SWT everyday several times a day. 

It's not just a single day of Thanksgiving like in the USA. 

Or a single day of worship on a Sunday.

We pray 5 times a day, and make dua and dhikr in between, reminding ourselves of our purpose in life - to praise Allah.

What are you blessed with today that other's go without?

 We can put all our focus on the thing's we don't have and think we need, and wallow in self pity at how much other people have, that's the easy thing to do and whilst that's going on we forget the true blessing's given to us. Also, if we feel jealousy at any point, that is just us counting other people's blessing's, rather than our own. Be content with what Allah has given you and you will be the richest of people.

"Don't think of the thing's you didn't get after praying, think of the blessing's you received without asking."

Did you know that there is a condition where your body forget's to breathe when you fall asleep? just think how we take that for granted, now that's just one

All those hundred's of brain signal's whizzing round getting job's done without our say so. All the involuntary movement's our bodies make 24/7. Your heart has been beating for {insert age here} year's!!

It is impossible to count every single one of the million's of amazing blessing's bestowed upon us, but do you know what? It's worth a try, in little segment's, everyday. The more you do it, the more you are able to add to the list, subhanAllah. The more you appreciate, the more you smile. To be a gracious Muslim is a blessing too!

"...So take what I have given you and be among the grateful." {Quran 7:144}
