A group of students were asked to list what they thought were the present "Seven Wonders of the World."
Though there were some disagreements, the following received the most votes:
1. Egypt's Great Pyramids
2. Taj Mahal
3. Grand Canyon
4. Panama Canal
5. Empire State Building
6. St. Peter's Basilica
7. China's Great Wall
While gathering the votes, the teacher noted that one student had not finished her paper yet. So she asked the girl if she was having trouble with her list.
The girl replied, "Yes, a little. I couldn't quite make up my mind because there were so many.
The teacher said, "Well, tell us what you have and maybe we can help."
The girl hesitated, then read, "I think the 'Seven Wonders of the World' are:
1. to see
2. to hear
3. to touch
4. to taste
5. to feel
6. to laugh
7. and to love."
The room was so quiet you could have heard a pin drop.
These are free gifts from Allah (SWT) we overlooked as #simple and #ordinary and that we take for granted.
If you wake up each day and have all these then you have all the wonders of the world.
If #wealth is the #secret to #happiness, then the rich should be dancing on the streets, but only poor kids do that.
If #power ensures #security, then top officials should walk unguarded, but people who live on roadside feel more secure.
If #beauty brings ideal #relationships, then celebrities should have the best marriages.
But they have one of the worst relationships.
That's why... Live simply...
Love genuinely!!! Every extra day given to us by Allah is a reminder of how close we are to the grave.
Why not use each of these gifts to say #Alhamdulillah and glorify Allah.
May Allah give us the #heart that appreciate His #mercy on us.
