Thanks
Thanks
I dreamt I went to Heaven and an angel was showing me around.

We walked inside a large workroom filled with angels. My 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.’ it was terribly busy with so many angels sorting out petitions from people all over the world.

 

Then we moved on until we reached the second section. The angel said, ‘This is the Packaging and Delivery Section. Here, the blessings people asked for are processed and delivered to them.’ I noticed again how busy it was.

 

Finally we stopped at the door of a very small station. Only one angel was seated there, idly doing nothing. ‘This is the Acknowledgment Section,’ my angel friend admitted. ‘How is it that there's no work going on here?’ I asked. ‘So sad,’ the angel sighed. ‘After people receive what they asked for, very few send back acknowledgments and thanks.’

 

‘How does one acknowledge God's blessings?’ I asked. ‘Simple,’ the angel answered. ‘Just say: ‘Thank you, Allah.’ ‘What blessings should they acknowledge?’ I asked. ‘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 worlds wealthy. If you can read this message, you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world who cannot read at all.’

 

‘...Whoever gives thanks, only gives thanks for (the good of) his own self...’ (Qur’aan 27:40)
