Day 22: Be Thankful

Thankfulness, or shukr, is a fundamental part of our faith. It’s so integral that its opposite is kufr, which means to cover or hide, but also means disbelief. Some people criticize a person or their community, thinking that they are showing concern. But in reality, they are making the situation worse by making others feel hopeless.

In these last few blessed days, try to display shukr, the blessings that Allah has given you. Avoid statements like “My life is horrible,” “Nothing is going well,” “The people at my mosque just don’t care.” If you hear others making these statements, try to encourage them to change their perspective. Not only will your mental outlook improve, but so will your thankfulness to Allah.
