Allahu Akbar

Allahu Akbar

Who has promised to reward you with gardens of felicity as a reward for your submission.
Who has guaranteed the Seven Levels of Hell for those who rebel against the authority of His Messengers mission.
The rebellious are severely punished for having misused their limited powers of free-will by pursuing the wrong direction. Having chosen misquidence rather than following the guidence they made decisions ill conceived. Soon in Jahannum they will grieve.
Who has provided you with livestock and fine cattle that you eat for food as well as wearing their hides for clothes, shoes, sheaths for your tools of battle and your heavily ornamented saddles. Who has given you wives and children a plenty while with holding from some not providing them with any. Have you thought about all the blessing that you have been granted. How firmly upon this rapidly spinning earth your feet are planted. All the sights that you have seen and spectacles witness. All the places you have been all the people that you have met and who you consider friends.
Are you appreciative demonstrating your gratefulness everyday, never missing an opportunity to bow down in jamaat with those who bow down and pray. Who holds up the Earth.
Who has made the Sky a canopy.
Who has given heat to the Sun.
Who provides water from the Clouds. Who made trees baring fruits and nuts timber for vessals and abodes. Who has provided you with the ingenuity to make barges to convey your heavy loads. Who created the rivers, creeks and lakes providing you with drink, travel, jewelry, fish to catch and consume. The same One that promises the paradise or the Doom. Who gave you eyes for vision, ears to hear and a nose to smell. Who sent to you the Prophets teaching you the guidence and leading you from the ways of hell. Leading you through their example to gardens beneath which rivers flow eternally to dwell.
Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. Hasbunallahu wa Ni'mal Wakeel
