The Cost of Breathing
It is said that a human breathes on average 2000 times a day.
Imagine if we had to pay to breathe. Just a penny for every breath.
That would be $2000 per day. $14,000 a week. $56,000 a month. $672, 000 a year.
But Allah does not charge us for breathing, yet how many of us have thanked Allah ta’ala for the ability to breathe?
‘And if you count the ni’mah of Allah, never will you be able to count them.’ (14:34)
There is a duaa that if one says in the morning and evening, they have given their thanks.
Please memorize it and say it everyday and night inshaAllah.
Learn it here. It can be found in hisnul muslim (little duaa book) under the duaas for the morning and evening. Note: for evening, instead of saying “asbaha” (I have woken up), you say, “amsaa” (I have reached the evening).
May Allah ta’ala make us among His thankful slaves, Ameen.
