hope there isnt another similar thread to this......enjoy reading this inshalah!

I dreamt that I went to Heaven and an angel was
showing me around. We walked side-by-side inside a
large workroom filled with angels. My angel guide
stopped in front of the first section and said, "This
is the Receiving Section. Here, all petitions to God
(said in Prayer) are received."

I looked around in this area, and it was extremely
busy with so many angels sorting out petitions written

on voluminous paper sheets and scraps from people all
over the world.

Then we moved on down a long corridor until we reached
the second section.

The angel then said to me, "This is the Packaging and
Delivery Section.
Here, the graces and blessings the people asked for
are processed and delivered to the living persons who
asked for them."

I noticed again how busy it was there. There were many
angels working hard in that station, since so many
blessings had been requested and were being packed for
delivery to Earth.

Finally at the farthest end of
the long corridor we
stopped at the door of a very small station. To my
great surprise, only one angel was seated there, idly
doing nothing.

"This is the Acknowledgement Section," my angel friend
quietly admitted to me. He seemed embarrassed.

"How is it that? There's no work going on here?" I
asked. "So sad," the angel sighed. "After people
receive the blessings, very few send back
acknowledgements".

"How does one acknowledge God's blessings?" I asked.

"Simple," the angel answered. "Just say, "'ALHAMDU LIL
LAHE RABBIL
AALAMEEIN (Thank you my Lord -
the maker of this whole
universe), or in whatever language you speak just say
"Thank you, Lord'."

What blessings should we acknowledge? I asked.
The angel looked at me in surprise ( as if asking -
you want me to name it for you) - what about some of
these:

"If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your
back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep ... you are
richer than 75% of this world.

"If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and
spar e change in a dish, you are among the top 8% of
the world's wealthy.

"And if you get this on your own
computer, you are
part of the 1% in the world who has that opportunity."

Also.

"If you woke up this morning with more health than
illness ... you are more blessed than the many who
will not even survive this day." "If you have never
experienced the fear in battle, the loneliness of
imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of
starvation ... you are ahead of 700 million people in
the world."

"If you can attend Masjid or attend religious meeting
without fear of harassment, arrest, torture or death
... you are envied by, and more blessed than, three
billion people in
the world.

If you can hold your head up and smile, you are not
the norm, you are unique to all those in doubt and
despair."

If you can read this message, you just received a
double blessing in that someone was thinking of you as
very special , and, you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world who cannot read at all.

any views inshalah.....

Angels...being embarrased? :? Why would they be embarrased by the misdeeds of man? :-\ :X

Anyways the ending was good... :)
