Today I decided to try something new. Usually during the day (normally after each prayer) I will say subhanAllah, alhamdulillah, and Allahu akbar 33 times each. I realized as I did this that sometimes I was just zooming out and saying the words. I wasn't really thinking about what I was saying.
Sooo I decided to challenge myself and to in turn challenge you all with something.
Think of 33 things that are good things that are praiseworthy while you say subhanAllah.
Think of 33 things that you are thankful to God for while you say alhamdulillah.
Think of 33 ways that God shows you he is the greatest while you say Allahu akbar.
subhanAllah, the rain falls to nourish us
subhanAllah, He is All Knowing
alhamdulillah, I have a home to live in
alhamdulillah, I have a job
Allahu akbar, the earth moves around the sun
Allahu akbar, my heart pumps blood to all parts of my body
Really all these things could be said in any category, but try to come up with 99 different things every day!! I think it is a good exercise, especially if you find yourself losing concentration...
