Bismillah

 

Each Breath

 

 

 

Am I truly grateful for each breath that I take,

For each and every moment that I am awake?

Do I thank Allah for my restful sleep,

And for the dreams that cause me to weep?

 

 

Am I honestly thankful to the Almighty One,

For the early morning mist, the bright, rising sun?

During Fajr prayer, I use my soft prayer mat,

As Allah’s servant, do I appreciate that?

 

Throughout the day, do I realize,

That Allah, All knowing and the Most Wise,

Gives me what I need and so much more

And that I have so much to be grateful for?

 

The scent of fresh rain, a small child’s laugh,

My sisters who choose to stand for Islam,

Each piece of fruit, each glass of water,

Brothers protecting their sons and their daughters.

 

A grandmother’s love, a book of hadith,

The clothes that I wear, the food that I eat.

The book that I should follow, the Holy Quran,

Promoting the good and ending the wrong.

 

So I must ask myself every beautiful day,

Am I truly grateful for each breath that I take,

For each and every moment that I am awake?

Do I thank Allah for my restful sleep,

And for the dreams that cause me to weep?
