بسم الله والحمد لله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله ، وبعد
In this age of technology and social media, everyone wants to share his “two cents” and wants to be heard. This maybe in the form of notes, pictures with (their own) quotes, or videos etc. Sometimes theses quotes are correct, and sometimes they are incorrect. One such pic which I came across today had the following quote:
Quote: “Dear God, I wanna take a minute, not to ask for anything from you, but simply to say… Thank You for all I have.”
One may find such quotes as thought provoking. But this is not how we behave with Allaah. Such a thought that we should not ask from Allaah all the time is considered as having bad thoughts about Allaah. Allaah تعالى does not get angry or annoyed when we supplicate to Him. Rather, Allaah تعالى loves that we should supplicate to Him, all the time, for all our needs – big or small. When we supplicate to Allaah, we humble ourselves, showing that we are the ones in need and that Allaah تعالى is Rich - free from needs and wants.
