Tonight


By Naadira Chhipa
Tonight as the sun sets and by the flick of a switch your homes become illuminated and warm say Alhamdullilah as there are millions of people living in darkness or by the light of a flickering candle.

Tonight as you enjoy a warm meal and delicious hot drinks take five minutes to say Alhamdullilah for the delicious food and drinks you have as there are millions of people searching in filthy bins for anything edible.Their stomachs are aching as hunger pangs stab at their soul.

Tonight as you take a hot shower and get dressed into your favourite fluffy winter pyjamas take five minutes to say Alhamdullilah for the warm water and clothes you have as there are millions of people walking for miles just to get a bucket of cold water dressed in rags we would not even use to dust our furniture.

Tonight as you safely tuck your kids into bed and place that extra blanky to keep them snug and warm take five minutes to say Alhamdullilah as there are millions of parents out there crying tears of blood as their innocent little children lay helplessly on the sidewalk.They shiver and cry out in agony as the cold and hunger embrace their tiny bodies.

Tonight as you snuggle onto your warm bed take five minutes to say Alhamdullilah for the roof above your head as there are millions of people out there shivering under the cold night sky.

Tonight before you close your eyes and drift into a deep slumber take five minutes to remember and be grateful to Allah for everything you have, say Alhamdullilah also never forget to make sincere dua for the millions of people who are trying to survive tonight.
