What If Allah...

Assalamualaikum wa Rahmatullaah wa Barakaatuh,

In our life, have we ever think how much Allah has given us and yet how much we have thank Him for what He give us?

What if Allah choose not to bless us today because we didn't even have the time to thank Him for His blessings yesterday?

What if Allah decided to stop guiding us tomorrow because we disobey Him today?

What if Allah sent down drought because we grumbled when Allah sent the rain?

What if Allah took away the Quran tomorrow because we would not read it today?

What if Allah took away His message because we failed to obey the messenger?

What if the door of the Mosque was closed because we did not bother to even go to the mosque for one single prayer?

What if Allah stopped loving and caring for us because we failed to love and care for others?

What if Allah choose to ignore us today because we would not listen to Him?

What if Allah answered our prayers according to the way we answer His calls?

What if Allah provided our needs according to the way we appreciate our lives that Allah gives us?

The question is did Allah ever stop love, care, and provide for us when we disobey Him? The answer is 'No'. It shows that how loving and merciful Allah is and He will always be most forgiving and most merciful, but how do we show that we are grateful for what Allah has given us?

Al-Mughirah ibn Shu’bah reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, would pray until his feet were swollen. It was said, “Why do you do this when Allah has forgiven your past and future sins?” The Prophet said, “Shall I not be a grateful servant?”
[Source: Sahih Muslim 2819]

The more Allah showers His blessings upon the Prophet (peace be upon him), the more act of worship that he performed to show his gratefulness.

If we love Allah, start doing something that Allah has commanded us to do. Take the Prophet (peace be upon him) as our best example. Don't wait until when there is no more time for us then all will be too late.
