The Cost of Oxygen !! – Great Lesson

In one day a human being breathes oxygen equivalent to three cylinders of oxygen.

Each oxygen cylinder on an average costs $22.

So in a day one uses Oxygen worth $66 and for a full year it is $24,090.

If we consider an average life span of 70 years; the costs of oxygen we use become a staggering sum of 1.68 Million Dollars.

And throughout our life this uninterruped supply of oxygen is derived free.

In spite of receiving all this oxygen free of cost from God; we are still so ungrateful to him!!

Dear Readers, there are so many gifts of God which we take for granted, that we don’t even take notice of it. 

Can you list some blessings of God which we don’t even notice!!!    (pls reply in the comments section)

    Masha Allah good calculatation and how we are neglecting the nature and environments. cutting trees. addining up pollution by use of fuels and many other chemicals hazards to spoil the climate/environment/ weather.etc.. is is ALL destruction and we are not taking any steps or even responsibility of the same.

    it is Almighty Allah’s blessings.. we must pay back what we take away. take out..

    second blessing is WATER.. natural rains and water from rivers/springs etc.. which we are wasting . misusuing and controlling or mismanging the rivers flows or disturbing the natural resources by polluting /. sending ALL kindly of waste and chemicals in the drains
    last but not least there are people dying of hunger and thirst and these resources are CONTROLLED by MNCs for packed water or dringks .

    All that God has given us is for free, and will always be so. Equally important is the fact that we are gifted with a mind which is the seat of intellect and wisdom, and enable us to realise the divine existence..In the midst of all material abundance, one must never forget the divine hand, even if not visible.

    A man reached 70 years of age and he faced a disease; he could not urinate. The doctors informed him that he was in need of an operation to cure this disease. He agreed to have the operation done as the problem was giving him much pain for days. When the operation was completed, his doctor gave him the bill which covered all the costs. The old man looked at the bill and started to cry. Upon seeing this the doctor told him that if the cost was too high then they could make some other arrangements. The old man said “I am not crying because of the money but I am crying because Allah let me urinate for 70 years and He never sent me a bill.”

    …and if you try to count the blessings of Allah, never will you be able to count them… {Surah Ibrahim}

    Allah’s has blessed our lives with plenty of favors. HIS bounties are innumerable, as HE said in Quran Surah Rahman: “THEN WHICH OF THE FAVORS OF YOUR LORD WILL YE DENY”? Yet, our beloved Prophet (pbuh) instructed to pray SALAT-UD-DOHA, which is when the sun is at its peak. This is the least best way we can thank ALLAH (SWT).

  13. sk July 10, 2012 at 4:58 PM #

    Everyday we wake up to sunlight without realising it is a gift from Allah, we sleep when it is dark without realising that Allah created darkness so that we can rest peacefully. We eat a full meal and congratulate ourselves for having earned well enough to afford it … we do not think that it was His giving. What if all the wealth of the world could not provide you with a meal? The growth of all food is essentially His mercy.

    We have eyes which can see; a smile which gives pleasure; greenery which is soothing …. at every step a million things are bestowed on us – at every moment we should thank Him for having given sooooooooooooooooo much!

    Salam everyone,
    Scientifically watching the whole universe has enormous details and connections. If we just watch ourselves it seems miraculous how balanced our subtle features are. When one of these get out of order we feel its affect on whole of our system which have never notice.
    The thing we seldom or never notice is the balance between our internal body pressure and the atmospheric pressure around us. With this balance we would disintegrate instantly.

    The Greatest gift from ALLAH(swt), is LIFE itself, then the Gift of Faith, then the Gift of Choices,,,,,,,,,

    I think man has always been ungrateful to Allah. If we consider the blessings those are countless since birth to death. In my believe the Allah’s network is the most powerful one, you can contact him for paying zero rupees even in space, deep in ocean, on poles etc. And this I think is the most precious blessing of Allah that you are intact with the most superior power anywhere, anytime. Also you are not supposed to be a pious one, every person can contact him for help or anything else. We should be grateful to him in any condition.

    • Sara - Admin July 7, 2012 at 11:52 AM #

      Rightly said Dildar.
      Please share this lesson with your friends as well.

    Being a Muslim we should thank ALLAH for all his blessings which He gave us. It is very difficult to count. Always we should thank our Creator for providing soo many things that to without asking…..
    May ALLAH show us the right path to follow……

    Thank God for your taste buds so you are able to taste your food and not think you are eating a bowl of salt, and for your saliva glands so you can swallow food easily and not take half an hour to eat one small sandwich. I know some who had such disabilities.

    We are unable to count the blessing of Allah Almighty. Always Thanks God.

    Allah Almighty has gifted mankind with HIS countless blessings. The only one, on which depends your existance i.e ROOH (Soul) if taken away by Allah Almighty, rest every thing is of no use / value. ALLAH Say in surrah AI-Rehman “Fabe eyye aalaa-e-rabbekuma tukaziban” O We should only prey HIM & Only HIM (Allah Almighty) and be always thankful to HIM for all HE has blessed us with.

    The best way to thank Allah for all His Bounties- is to pray five times

    Say: Though the sea became ink for the Words of my Lord, verily the sea would be used up before the words of my Lord were exhausted, even though We brought the like thereof to help (Al-Kahf 110).

    Say (unto them, O Muhammad): He it is who gave you being, and hath assigned unto you ears and eyes and hearts. Small thanks give ye! (Al-Mulk – 23)

  33. Fahim May 27, 2012 at 9:02 AM #

    Water, green environment, fruits everything we use and see are gifts of the Almighty. So we should think why he is giving all these for us. Why has he created us? and we have to go back to him.

  35. Haliru Ibrahim May 27, 2012 at 2:52 AM #

    Thanks to almighty Allah for all he has given us.
    This is really a miracle. with this, one should try to be closer
    to God always. There is no way we can pay ALLAH, no one is calculating
    how many times he/she has gone to toilet to ease his/her self freely.
    Remember there are those whom cannot do this act freely.

  36. Stephen May 26, 2012 at 7:10 PM #

    Dear Sara, Only God fearing people will know all this & through you, it is an eye opener for the ignorant. I thank the Lord every morning on waking up for continuing my breathing uninterrupted & for keeping every cell of my body intact & functioning normal. What more can one ask for. Praise God. Stephen.

    Alhamdulillah, Allahu Akbar, Thank you for the person who reminded me the valuable gift of Allah the most merciful the most gracious. Ya Allah forgive our sins. bless us to think about you all the time. If Allah keep us to THINK TO BREATH, what will happen ? can we concentrate on any other work ?. Allah, you are so kind with the human beings and unseen creatures. You are the master of everthing.

  39. Paras May 26, 2012 at 4:45 PM #

    Every thing within ourselves and around us is a blessing and gift from Allah Swt. and counting them is simply impossible.

    Among the countless gifts of Allah swt. I would name “mother” first.

  40. iftekhar Ahmed May 26, 2012 at 4:28 PM #

    Allah is Great – ALLAH AKBAR – ALLAH AKBAR ,

    Allah pardon us for being UNTHANKFULL – For people who help us & Allah who is the only Blessed us with numerous GIFT OF LIFE .

    The most valuable gifts Allah has given us is – For being born in a MUSLIM MOTHER – FAMILY , & BLESSED US FOR BEING granted to hear AZAAN as the first voice . & For being blessed us to be RASULLULLAHS { PBUH] ummath .

    How beautiful. The nature is neither a miser nor cost conscience.
    Please stop these so called intellectual stories. The moment my present government realizes,there would be huge Tax for oxygen inhalers. Please be more mindful. Our budget is just round the corner.

  42. latheefpp May 26, 2012 at 3:54 PM #

    If we consider this, there are so many gifts like that from ALLAH. We have to praise him for everything. No one is calculating the amount of breast milk we are getting from our mother free and re paying to anybody.

  43. Abdul Matin Sheikh May 26, 2012 at 2:36 PM #

    Really we always must be Thankful to Allah T.W.T for all His Blessings He has Bestow on all of us.
