Abused Blessings

Two things we should do upon receiving any blessings from Allah:

1. Mention Allah by making zikr

2. Be grateful to Allah by using the blessing as commanded.

And (remember) when Musa (Moses) asked for water for his people, We said: “Strike the stone with your stick.” Then gushed forth therefrom twelve springs. Each (group of) people knew its own place for water. “Eat and drink of that which Allah has provided and do not act corruptly, making mischief on the earth.” (Surah Al Baqarah 2:60)

In this ayah, the Children of Isra’el were given blessings, and Allah commanded them to not make corruption and mischief on earth. It’s little wonder that we are drowned in problems of greenhouse effects, global warming, toxic everything, and pesticides in our food. We haven’t been using the blessings we are bestowed with within the limits.
