Ever uncertain what to be grateful for? Alhamdulillah for …

When asked to share their personal reasons to say Alhamdulillah when doing their adhkar (remembrance), students of Zuhri Institute said …

  1. I am grateful that Allah has created me, and given me the ability to be grateful. It goes without saying that none of the below would be possible without Allah
  2. Islam – as a kid I didn’t realise how valuable is and the blessing I received by being born into Muslim family. I only came to appreciate this in my teens when I saw people struggle with their faith.
  3. Parents – they raised and provided for me with the little they had, they tried their best to get me to follow the deen, focus on my studies and become a good person.
  4. My wife – she supports me in everything I do, advises me on difficult decisions and helps me to become a better person
  5. My cat
  6. My siblings – Alhamdulillah they are decent people who help me to look after my parents

  9. My uncles – they provided me with various life lessons from a young age, basic things like how to communicate to others in a respectful manner and how to use computers!
  10. The NHS – my father is a heart transplant patient, he is currently using a heart pump device that essentially replaces the function of his blood and circulates blood through his body. If my father was in Bangladesh he would most likely not be alive, the NHS has provided him with a lifeline, a potential pathway to recovery and on going support with medication and rehabilitation.
  11. My grandmother – I am grateful for her as she is the only grandparent I got to spend time with as a child
  12. My teachers – I have had a lot of teachers in my academic studies many of which had a profound effect on how I view the world of work. In particular I am grateful for my college history teacher who showed what it means to be humble yet excellent master of teaching.
  13. My friends – I am grateful that I have friends who strive to be on the deen, who correct me when i make a mistake, and advise me when I am having difficulties

  17. The Ability to Drive
  18. My Car – I remember my first car had no windscreen wipers/washing, no a/c and was an absolute banger. Alhamdulillah I am now in a position where i can enjoy the creature comforts of some A/C, working wipers and even a heated seat or tow.
