Allah says in Quran:
And [remember] when your Lord proclaimed, ‘If you are grateful, I will surely increase you [in favor]; but if you deny, indeed, My punishment is severe.’ ”
We have come so far in the rush of life, that reality is clenched away from us, our lust for more have made us amnesiac and we never appreciate or thank for what we have got in real, what we have gathered so far, what things have we achieved and in how many miraculous ways we were blessed. Prophet of ALLAH (صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ) have taught us prayers that have sense of gratitude and humbleness in them, with a mixture of redemption on our sins. There is nothing more lovable before ALLAH Almighty than a person who thank Him and ask for His blessings and forgiveness.
Here are 5 prayers that you can adhere to five sites and thank for those bounties and situation every time you pass by them or use them.
- AT YOUR WATER DISPENSER, COOLER:
“اللهم إني أعوذ بك من زوال نعمتك، وتحول عافيتك، وفجاءة نقمتك، وجميع سخطك”
O Allah! I seek refuge in You against the declining of Your Favors, passing of safety, the suddenness of Your punishment and all that which displeases You
Water is a blessing and can be a cause of devastation, with its excess and its absence it can affect us profoundly. So, seek refuge from this and any kind of curse by reciting this, every time you drink water.
- AT YOUR FRIDGE:
“رَبِّ إِنِّي لِمَا أَنزَلْتَ إِلَيَّ مِنْ خَيْرٍ فَقِيرٌ”
My lord, I am in absolute need of the good You send me
Prophet Musa (AS) made this supplication after helping the daughters of Prophet Shoaib (AS) at the well at Madyan. Why on fridge, we open it and close it even if we are not hungry. We continue to stare at the things we have got in it and denying every blessing we have got thinking “There is nothing to eat” such a shame! So, stick this supplication on your fridge as a reminder to thank ALLAH (SWT) for every thing you have and get a continual of his blessings.
- AT YOUR MIRROR:
اللَّهُمَّ أَنْتَ حَسَّنْتَ خَلْقِي فَحَسِّنْ خُلُقِي
O Allah, just as You have made my external features
beautiful, make my character beautiful as well
This is such beautiful prayer by Prophet of ALLAH (صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ) place it on your mirror for the beautiful face and features complementing each other, for without ALLAH (SWT) you would be nothing.
- BEFORE YOUR BATHROOM ENTERANCE:
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الْخُبْثِ وَالْخَبَائِثِ
O Allah. I seek refuge in You from the male female evil and Jinns
[Mishkat, Hisnul Hasin] When leave:
الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي أَذْهَبَ عَنِّي الْأَذَى وَعَافَانِي
“All Praise be to Allah, who removed the difficulty from me and gave me ease (relief)”.
Excretion is the process that guarantees digestion which means the approval for the pleasure you get when you eat a lot of things. So, seek refuge and pay homage to ALLAH Almighty.
- IN YOUR CAR:
سُبْحَانَ الَّذِي سَخَّرَ لَنَا هَـٰذَا وَمَا كُنَّا لَهُ مُقْرِنِينَ وَإِنَّا إِلَىٰ رَبِّنَا لَمُنقَلِبُونَ
Allah is pure, He has given control and without His power we would not have any control without doubt we are to return to him:
Traveling was considered to be a life threating task and now its like we are sitting in a room resting, enjoying, so whenever you drive whether to the nearby market or the next city, do give thanks to ALLAH.
- AT YOUR WATER DISPENSER, COOLER:
May ALLAH guide us in every matter of life, Ameen!
