Very Few Send Back Acknowledgements

Very Few Send Back Acknowledgements

 I dreamt that I went to Heaven and an angel was showing me around. We walked side-by-side inside a large workroom filled with angels. My angel guide stopped in front of the first section and said, “This is the Receiving Section.

Here, all petitions to God said in prayer are received.” I looked around in this area, and it was terribly busy with so many angels sorting out petitions written on voluminous paper sheets and scraps from people all over the world. Then we moved on down a long corridor until we reached the second section.

 The angel then said to me, “This is the Packaging and Delivery Section. Here, the graces and blessings the people asked for are processed and delivered to the living persons who asked for them.” I noticed again how busy it was there. Therewere many angels working hard at that station, since so many blessingshad been requested and were being packaged for delivery to Earth.

Finally at the farthest end of the long corridor we stopped at the door of a very small station. To my great surprise, only one angel was seated there, idly doing nothing. “This is the Acknowledgment Section,” my angel friend quietly admitted to me.

He seemed embarrassed.

 “How is it that? There’s no work going on here?”

 I asked. “So sad,” the angel sighed. “After people receive the blessings that they asked for, very few send back acknowledgments”.

“How does one acknowledge God’s blessings?”

I asked. “Simple,” the angel answered.

“Just say, “‘ALHAMDULILLAHI RABBIL AALAMIIN”, (“All praise beloongs to the Lord of the Worlds” )

What blessings should we acknowledge?

If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep … you are richer than 75% of this world.

“If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish, you are among the top 8% of the world’s wealthy. “And if you get this on your own computer, you are part of the 1% in the world who has that opportunity.” Also …

 “If you woke up this morning with more health than illness … you are more blessed than the many who will not even survive this day.

 “If you have never experienced the fear in battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation … you are ahead of 700 million people in the world.

“If you can attend Masjid or attend religious meeting without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death … you are envied by, and more blessed than, three billion people in the world.

“If your parents are still alive and still married … you are very rare. If you can hold your head up and smile, you are not the norm, you are unique to all those in doubt and despair.

” If you can read this message, you just received a double blessing in that someone was thinking of you as very special, and, you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world who cannot read at all. Have a good day, count your blessings, and if you want, pass this along to remind everyone else how blessed we all are.

“And Remember your Lord has declared that, ‘If you are grateful then I will add (more favors) unto you'”. (Ibrahim 14:7)

WHEN A LIZARD CAN, WHY CAN’T WE?

TRUE INSPIRING STORY.. WHEN A LIZARD CAN, WHY CAN’T WE?

This is a true story that happened in Japan (I am not sure abuout the authentcity about its truth.).

In order to renovate the house, someone in Japan breaks open the wall. Japanese houses normally have a hollow space between the wooden walls. When tearing down the walls, he found that there was a lizard stuck there because a nail from outside hammered into one of its feet. He sees this, feels pity, and at the same time curious, as when he checked the nail, it was nailed 5 years ago when the house was first built !!!

What happened?  The lizard has survived in such position for 5 years!  In a dark wall partition for 5 years without moving, it is impossible and mind-boggling. Then he wondered how this lizard survived for 5 years! without moving a single step–since its foot was nailed! So he stopped his work and observed the lizard, what it has been doing, and what and how it has been eating. Later, not knowing from where it came, appears another lizard, with food in its mouth. Ah! He was stunned and touched deeply. For the lizard that was stuck by nail, another lizard has been feeding it for the past 5 years… Imagine? it has been doing that untiringly for 5 long years, without giving up hope on its partner.

Imagine what a small creature can do that a creature blessed with a brilliant mind can’t. Please never abandon your loved ones

Lesson from the Story: Never Say you are Busy When They Really Need You …

You May Have The Entire World At Your Feet.

But You Might Be The Only World To Them..

A Moment of negligence might break the very heart which loves you thru all odds.. Before you say something just remember.. it takes a moment to Break but an entire lifetime to make…
