While debating on an anti-Muslim forum on Muslims social ethics, somehow, I came up with the following lines. There might be a few gramatic mistakes but the feeling is pure. I hope it will help you in some way.
Do you Thank Allah Everyday being a Muslim?
I thank God every day that when I was a kid I got the affection, love and care that I deserved from my family.
I thank God every day that I am being taught that your mother is your key to go to heaven. If you want to make your God happy then try to make happy your mother.
I thank God every day that I am being taught that husband and wife share a divine kind of love and companionship and know how to sacrifice for each other and how to see only the good in each other.
I thank God every day that I am being taught that if you are lucky enough to become parent of a daughter, treat them well and you will be a companion of Holy Prophet (PBUH) in heaven.
I thank God every day that I am being taught that the children should be raised by their own parents and not in a day care system. So that they may not grow up with some kind of love complex and with insecure feelings.
I thank God every day that I am being taught that kids, even when they grow up and become adults, should respect us as parents and would not raise their voice in front of us or let us feel ashamed or disgraced in front of others.
I thank God every day that I am being taught that grand parents are a blessing to the family and to be taken care with love and extreme respect rather them sending to old homes only to be met on the mother’s father’s or parents day.
I thank God every day that I am being taught that to honor my words and fulfill promises and to remain true to my friends no matter what the loss and gain would be.
I thank God every day that am being taught that all the neighbors should be treated just like a big family and you should not only know if some one is ill in whole vicinity but go to him and do some part in taking care of him.
I thank God every day that I am being taught to remain honest in my business, pay taxes, do not hold the money and give at least 2.5% share of my profits and reserves to poor and needy each year and been advised to give more if you seek Allah’s companionship.
I thank God every day that I am being taught to forgive others no matter what they have done to us for a greater reward in the life here after and to get closer to the Creator but to not have a second thought to fight back with everything we have got if some one rages a war against us.
I thank God every day that I know we have given a Role Model in the shape of the purest soul of all our beloved Holy Prophet (PBUH) who has established a great Muslim state in a very limited time with a strong followers base and have an outstanding history which puts Him at the top of greatest man ever in the world even in the eyes of those who do not follow his path.
I thank God every day that I have to bow my head in front of my creator 5 times a day each and every day till my death, when the day just starts by the dawn, when the sun is jut passed my head, when its afternoon and when its going to set and when the night takes over the light so you may not forget your purpose of existence and refresh some of the Holy Book in each prayer as well to not let your worldly desires over come you and to remain human through out the day.
I thank God every day that I know this life is given to me as a test to see whether I still give thanks to my Creator and obey him instead of forgetting him and forgetting my purpose of existence, making my own morals of right and wrong and think that I am on my own and can do whatever my heart desires.
I thank God every day that I know the purpose of my life is to proves God’s will as a testimony that the human being will still obey his creator even after giving him a free mind with his own will power.
I thank God every day that I am born as a Muslim and pray to become a better Muslim each and every day.
