Counting My Blessings

Alhamdulillah for my limbs, my senses, my health and that of my family, for the roof over my head and the clothes on my back, for the clean drinking water that flows without pause when I turn on the tap, the food in my fridge and the money in my account, for my supportive extended family, for being part of an Ummah that is so vast I feel at home wherever I go in the world, for the great blessing of Islam and the honour of knowing Allah and His Messenger, for living in a land where I am free to express myself and practise my religion as I choose, for not living in constant fear of a missile landing on my house or my family’s, for hearing birds sing outside and not gunfire, for the comfort and security that I take for granted every single day; Alhamdulillah.
