It’s amazing how we take the ability to read and write for granted, we see it as so simple, something everything should have where in fact millions across the world aren’t able too due to financial and social reasons. They simply can’t afford or they’re not allowed too as young girls are forced into becoming housewives, men are drafted into the military and they never have this opportunity. This also links in with us being able to see, as we read, we have the ability to see all of Allah’s amazing creations whereas some will only see darkness all their life. They won’t be able to see soft reds and sweet yellows, to experience colour and imagination. Also we have the ability to read which means we can listen to what we read, we can listen to Qur’an, we take this blessing for granted. Imagine how much a deaf person would yearn to hear the beautiful recitation of the Qur’an. The simple things, have us so blessed. Life is worth living, never look at those above you, look at those below so you see how much your Lord has bestowed upon yourself, Alhamdulilah.
