Alhamdulillah...we must thank Allah for these three opportunities as related in a Hadith Qudsi which we all are familiar with. We must also thank the Almighty for giving us the tawfik to do something about it and not let the opportunities pass us by. A sick person, a hungry person and a thirsty person all offer us the opportunity to become closer to Allah.
This is a late posting because I have been busy visiting the sick. It's a humbling experience to see one patient not having anyone visit him. No one! It's a humbling experience to see several old Chinese men and women being hospitalized during the Chinese New Year festivities.
May Allah grant us all good health so we are able to function well and help those who need a helping hand. We may not be able to make 10,000 zikir Allah...Allah a day - something which might bring us close to Him, therefore, we should try to be useful when a sick person needs our assistance. We should try to be generous and thoughtful towards those who are hungry and thirsty.
Let's seize the opportunities.
