It was good that you posted it, for I realized I had expected and received worldly returns even without any investment in good deeds, or contaminated these with corrupted intentions.
There is so much I have been given, and all undeserved.
I have not even offered the the thanks due.
Shaikh Sa`adi says:
har nafasay kih fero mee ravad, mumudday hayat ast
wa har nafasay kih baeroon may ayad, mufarrahi zaat
pas dar har nafas, du naymat hast
wa bar har naymat shkray wajib
Every inhalation that goes inside our lungs, helps us continue to live
and every exhalation that we breathe out, makes us happy (sorry, I will look up the meaning of farah later)
so in every breath, there are two blessings
and on every blessing, a thanks becomes due
Now the implication is that in order to say thank you, we have to breathe in and out, so two more shukr become wajib while we are trying to say thanks for just half of a breath (inhalation or exhalation), the shukr of the other half of a breath hasn;t even been addressed.
We can never thank Allah enough.
