At Times of Amazement and Delight

Making dua at times of amazement and delight can multiply our happiness and make us feel closer to our lord. One must thank Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى at all times because He is the One Who knows the blessings that are hidden even in difficult times for us. Life isn't a linear path of happiness and goodness but is a mixture of both the easy and difficult parts the good thing is that there is always some wisdom behind our happiness and sadness that only Allah is aware of. 

Good times or times of delight are a gift from Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى, and it is important to acknowledge the good one receives in life so that no moment of goodness is taken for granted and is enjoyed. Good times are a gift and a sign of Allah’s blessings and His kindness that we can never measure or comprehend.
