The Everyday Blessings Of God We Take For Granted

Friday, April 15, 2011Mustafaa Abdul Muhammad

The following verses are from the 16th Sura of The Holy Qur'an, The Muslim Scripture, verses 9-8

16:9 And upon Allah it rests to show the right way, and there are some deviating (ways). And if He please, He would guide you all aright.

16:10 He it is Who sends down water from the clouds for you; it gives drink, and by it (grow) the trees on which you feed.

16:11 He causes to grow for you thereby herbage, and the olives, and the date-palms, and the grapes, and all the fruits. Surely there is a sign in this for a people who reflect.

16:12 And He has made subservient for you the night and the day and the sun and the moon. And the stars are made subservient by His command. Surely there are signs in this for a people who understand.

16:13 And what He has created for you in the earth is of varied hues. Surely there is a sign in this for a people who are mindful.

16:14 And He it is Who has made the sea subservient that you may eat fresh flesh from it and bring forth from it ornaments which you wear. And thou seest the ships cleaving through it, so that you seek of His bounty and that you may give thanks.

16:15 And He has cast firm mountains in the earth lest it quake with you, and rivers and roads that you may go aright,

16:16 And landmarks. And by the stars they find the right way.

16:17 Is He then Who creates like him who creates not? Do you not then mind?

16:18 And if you would count Allah’s favours, you would not be able to number them. Surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
