Day 10: Be Grateful, Give thanks

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
Aya of the day
14:7
And [remember] when your Lord proclaimed, ‘If you are grateful, I will surely increase you [in favor]; but if you deny, indeed, My punishment is severe.’ ” [Surat Ibrahim, 14:7]
Lesson of the Day: Be Grateful, Give thanks
When was the last time we felt really grateful? As we break our fast with more food than we need, we really need to take the time out to reflect on our numerous blessings. The fact that we have food to break our fast with, a home to feel secure in, healthy bodies, our family around us and much much more. Thanking Allah for these blessings is a recognition on our part that truly these blessings are from Him, and being grateful for them.
We are reminded in so  many places in the Qur’an how much we have been given yet how little thanks we give in return. And in the verse above Allah tells us of something even greater- for the thanks we are supposed to give, He will give us more. Not because we deserve it, but because Allah is that Generous. SubhanAllah.
One of the most amazing ways to thank to give from what Allah has given you. There are so many people in need, and Ramadan teaches us the true spirit of giving. So thank Allah in both word and deed by giving to others. Below are just a few suggestions:
– Provide clean drinking water for those in need
– Sponsor an orphan
– Help Somalia
