Not Abusing Allah’s ﷻ Gifts

Reflection delivered on June 10th, 2022 

On Friday, June 10, 2022, Shaykh Amin delivered a very simple, yet poignant reminder that we must acknowledge every gift Allah bestows upon us so that it doesn’t become a burden on us.  

“We cannot live in oblivion and not acknowledge what Allah is doing for us at this moment.”  

This state of obliviousness is abusing Allah’s gifts and exploiting what He has given us. This sort of moment to moment awareness is exemplified in the worship of our Prophet Muhammad .  He showed gratitude for the rain, wind, and all of creation through duāʾ .  “The meaning of duāʾ is being humble in front of Allah .” If one is humble and grateful Allah will give you more.
