Imagine awakening one morning and opening the front door, only to be greeted by the sight of a beribboned basket packed with steaming croissants, a flask of hot coffee, a jug of freshly squeezed orange juice and other fresh breakfast delights! You wonder who your generous benefactor could possibly be as the accompanying note merely says, “Hope you enjoy”.

To your absolute delight, this early morning treat continues. Every morning without fail, the basket arrives on your doorstep, containing a different selection of tasty treats. By the time the third or fourth morning dawns, you are extremely eager to identify your well-wisher so that you can, at the very least, say “Thank You”.

If the idea of a breakfast basket delivered to our door every morning, free of charge, sounds fantastic, have we ever pondered over the fact that every morning, we all wake up to enjoy another fresh basket of life filled with precious gifts, designed exclusively for us?

We have all been blessed with unique features that make us different from other people. The curve in our ears, the shade of our eyes, the slope of our nose, the tone of our voice, the shape and length of our fingers; every fine detail designed especially for you.

Best of all is the fact that we all know the identity of the One who has blessed us with these bounties – Allah Ta‘ala. Appreciation demands that we express gratitude to our generous Creator, Allah Ta‘ala, by utilizing these favours solely in His obedience.

Let us strive to personally thank Allah Ta‘ala every day by pleasing Him.
