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 read this on your own computer, you are part of the 1% in the world who has that opportunity.
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 a Masjid without the 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're unique to all those in doubt and despair.
There is plenty to be thankful for. Alhamdulillah.
