Blessing counter


Alhamdulillah wa shukrulillah.

You know that little gadget called 'hand tally' or digital tasbih counter. It used to come in quite big a size, made of steel. The new ones are smallish colorful plastic thingy. I think they should make a special one just for counting our blessings and perhaps have a lil menu next to it where we can select categories of blessings like great food, got another Tiffany, not in chronic pain, smooth day at work, and a long...long....list of items. Let's count our blessings and keep counting. Oh yes, 'feeling grateful' should be a category of blessings to count too because as we have all heard from the learned, we must be grateful that we are grateful because ingratitude is not a blessing, obviously.  

Alhamdulillah wa shukrulillah it's Friday, Jum'ah Mubarak to all. I am excited about going to Penang this weekend in sha Allah to check on the progress of my supposedly white kitchen cupboards. And will most definitely have nasi kandar [for the benefit of our foreign readers, this is basically white rice with tonnes of spicy fish and beef and chicken curry and whatever curries is available. I will share some pics next time.]

It's mid-Shaaban already. It's Nisfu Shaaban. Ramadhan is just around the corner. May Allah be so kind to let us see Ramadhan al-Mubarrak. Ameen.

On this blessed Friday, if you think you have in a small way been enjoying this space, please kindly say a prayer for this faqir.  

Wassalamualaikum warahmatullah.

But don't mention or recount people's shortcomings 
on their behalf. Don't become that fella's "mistake counter".
