Praise Allah!

If you have been blessed to experience beauty this day or night, praise Allah!

If you are in a cold climate yet have a warm home, praise Allah!

If you have been blessed with good health, praise Allah!

If you have ample resources or adequate wealth, praise Allah!

If you have books to read and pens with which to write, praise Allah!

If you have food each time that you open the fridge, praise Allah!

If you have running water healthy and clear, praise Allah!

If your loved ones are safe and near, praise Allah!

If you have clothing that is clean and appropriate, praise Allah!

If you live without the fear of bombs raining on you, praise Allah!

If your speech is judicious and your words always true, praise Allah!

If there is no threat of harm from someone seeing Islam differently than you do, praise Allah!

If you lack any of the above yet still love Allah, praise Allah!

If you have been blessed to praise Allah, praise Allah!

Praise Allah! Praise Allah! Praise Allah!

Imam Zaid Shakir

A Tough Nut to Crack

By Alan Rooney

 

Mistakenly hiding from the past

Building fortress walls made to last

But now they're up, I can't get out

No matter inside how much I scream and shout

It was never meant to be the goal

This inner oppression of the soul

A prison of my own making

The world around me forsaken

No help to break free

It's really down to me

Someone, please, help guide me to the key
