Imam Azhar asks the audience, why is so difficult to give thanks?
Many people, when they try to count their blessings, end up counting more of the bad things in their life, or the bad things that have happened to them. So why is it that we struggle to have, and give thanks?
No one has ever promised that life would be perfect, and that life would be easy. In fact, the opposite of this is true. This life was designed to be a test, not just of our faith, but of us as well.
However, regardless of this life being a test filled with struggles, Imam Azhar reminds us that it is imperative that count our blessings and be thankful for what we have – and not spend extra energy focusing on how bad life is.
He suggests that we should stop taking things like life and health for granted. Be thankful for them, because in this world you never know when either one can be taken away.
