On the day of Eid Al Fitr 1436 Sayyidi wa sanadi Mufti Mohammad Taqi Usmani (Allah preserve and protect him) instructed,
‘Appreciate the blessings of Allah and be thankful excessively.
When I contemplate on the blessings of Allah that are being bestowed on me, it feels like like a torrential rainfall. Sometimes I fear that this might be istedraj. (May Allah save us all from it.)
Recite abundantly (with contemplation of meanings)
اللهم اجعلنا شاكرين لنعمك مثنين بها قابليها وأتمها علينا
O Lord! make us thankful for the blessings You have bestowed on us, allowing us to appreciate them, making us competent of (utilizing) them (appropriately) and making them perfect for us.
Allah will bestow more blessings and facilitate further progress.’
