You should be thankful to Allah that you are blessed beyond measure since you are a Muslim. Allah has created you and Allah’s creation is err free.
Allah is the King of this and all universes. He has made everything for our ease so we can thank him.
The sun, moon, mighty mountains and lakes, stars and trees, they all worship Allah. They all are Allah’s creation and are helpful to us in numerous ways.

Even if our sins touch the sky, one sincere repentance call can wash our sins away. That’s how forgiving The Almighty is.
If we are treated as per our sins, the punishment would be severe. However, Allah has always been kind to his creation.
He forgives the major and minor sins if the person calls out to him sincerely. If our sins are not forgiven, no one of us would enter Paradise because only angels are err-free but not the humans.
6 – Allah saves us from calamities
After every pain, there is ease. That’s how kind our Lord is. Life is unpredictable, some days are joyous while others are not.
Even if your life has been through rough days, there will be days that bring you sunshine. There will be days you’d no longer remember the pain. That’s how Allah saves us from calamities, trials and danger.
Allah is the most powerful and he has everything in his control. Your failures, trials and calamities happen on his orders.
Similarly, your good days come by his order. You need to trust in Allah’s plans, as we discussed in our post on Quotes That Prove Allah is The Best Planner of All Affairs.
5 – Allah is faithful to us
Even when we turn away from Allah, he is always there for us. He doesn’t take away his blessings from us. Allah is faithful to us even when we are faithless.
We can always count on Allah as HE is always there in our happy and darkest hours. There might be days without repentance and dua, but there are no days when our tables are not filled with food and feasts.
Allah has always been kind to each one of us. He is the exalted, the most faithful.
4 – Allah doesn’t break his promises
Since Allah is the greatest of all, HE doesn’t break his promises. He’s always there protecting and guiding us.
He doesn’t lie. There are times when humans break their promises and take their words back but, it is Allah who never lies to his creations and never breaks his promises too.
There are several promises that Allah has made as mentioned in the Holy Quran and everything that happens, happens by the will of Allah.

When a person is disobedient, he is not punished then and there. Allah has always been kind to his creation. He gives them time to repent.
Allah never closes his doors of mercy to the hands that make dua. Soon as the person asks for forgiveness, Allah is all there for the rescue.
Similarly, if there’s a person who is disobedient to Allah; he doesn’t pray, doesn’t repent and doesn’t follow the path of Islam, Allah waits for such a soul to get back to the righteous path.
He doesn’t take revenge from his creatures. He waits patiently for the soul to repent. That’s such a great blessing for Muslims.
