فَبِأَىِّ ءَالَآءِ رَبِّكُمَا تُكَذِّبَان
Mankind is surrounded by Allah’s Favours

Allah said,
(Then which of the blessings of your Lord will you both deny) meaning, “O mankind and Jinn, which of the favours that Allah has given to you do you deny Mujahid and others said this, and it is apparent when one reads what comes after it. Meaning the favours that are obvious to you while you are surrounded by them, you cannot deny or reject them. So we say, just as the believers among the Jinns said, “O Allah! None of Your favours do we deny. All praise is due to You.’ Ibn `Abbas used to say, “Nay, our Lord!” meaning, “None of Your favours do we deny.”
There are some blessings Allah bestows on us but we seldom appreciate.

Sahih Al-Bukhari, volume 8, Book 76, Number 421:
Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas:
The Prophet said, “There are two blessings which many people lose: (They are)
Health and
Time invested for doing good.

How well do we invest our times doing good especially at this period?
why then won’t you invest the remaining time you have this period?
The period in which Every saddaqah is counted.
Every good deed is seen no matter how small it by giving a small cup of water.

How well do we utilise the gift of good health given to us?
So many are in the hospital it not their wish to be there but how bounty our lord is and you are healthy and strong but did not obey to the will of the creator. The air u breath in is not paid for while some at the hospital do pay for it using oxygen……. Ma sha Allah, then which of his favour shall you deny???

Many are out there suffering from hunger,they have no one to go to neither do they have the wealth but here your are wealthy enough why don’t you give sadaqah……. Which of his FAVOURS shall you deny???

While you are sadden of not getting the latest car some are crying of having a bicycle for the past 50 years he has been working…….. Which of your LORDS FAVOURS shall you deny???
Times and health are invaluable gifts that can’t be bought either with dollar or naira or any other currency. Ordinary headache even without catarrh or running nose will surely make one appreciates that health is wealth. Isn’t having stomach upset alone without cramp enough a lesson for one that health is a gift. Having free time while in good health can be more appreciated when invested in the cause of Allah.
Make good deed by doing charity.

To parents
The Family
The Needy
The widow
The orphan etc.

May Allah save us from the evil of ingratitude. May He make it easy for us to be grateful for all His blessings.
