Seven Wonders of the World

"It is He who has created for you (the faculties) of hearing, sight, feeling and understanding: little thanks you give."
(Al Qur'an, surah Al Mu'minun 23: 78)

Seven Wonders

A group of Geography students studied The Seven Wonders of the World.

At the end of that session, the students were asked to list what they think were considered to be the present Seven Wonders of the World.

Though there was some disagreement, the following got the most votes:

While gathering the votes, the teacher noted that one student, a quiet girl, hadn't turned in her paper yet. So she asked the girl if she was having trouble with her list.

The quiet girl replied, "Yes, a little. I couldn't quite make up my mind because there were so many."

The teacher said, "Well, tell us what you have, and maybe we can help."

The girl hesitated, then read, "I think the Seven Wonders of the World are:

  • 1) to touch
  • 2) to taste
  • 3) to see
  • 4) to hear

She hesitated a little more, and then

  • 5) to feel
  • 6) to laugh
  • 7) and to love

Then there was the room so full of silence it was deafening! It is far too easy for us to look at the exploits of man and refer to them as "wonders" while we overlook all the Almighty has done for us, regarding them as merely "ordinary".

May we be reminded today of those things which are truly wonderous that the GENEROUS CREATOR has given; that we take for granted !

Let's teach our kids to say thank and praise to Allah in any situation, any time, any place.... Alhamdulillah.

I remembered Khutbah on Jumuah prayer, It was about Jannah/Paradise.
Muslim can not go to paradise because of his/her good deed only. Muslim need mercy from Allah to go to paradise.

Some of the mercy that we get such as,

  • we can do our pray five times a day.
  • we can memorize the surah in Al Quran.
  • we can give charity to needy and orphan.
  • we can build the masjid, school, hospital.
  • we can go to hajj.
  • we can do all good deeds that Allah commands and Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad PBUH.

May Allah give us mercy all the time.
Ameen. Ameen. Ameen.
