Count The Blessing

Ibin آbid -Dunya mentioned that Dawûd (May the peace and and blessings of Al Mighty God be upon him) asked Al Mighty God , "What is the least of your blessings?" Allah (Al'Mighty God) revealed to him to take a breath. Dawud did so, and Allah (Al Mighty God) told him, ” This is the least of my blessings on you."
Patience and Gratitude by Ibin Qayim Al Jawziyyah, p. 70.

Wisdom Quotes

"Humans are amphibians - half spirit and half animal. As spirits they belong to the eternal world, but as animals they inhabit time." -
C.S.Lewis

Dhikr

The Messenger Of Islam (Peace and blessings of Al'Mighty God be upon him) said;
"Shall I introduce to you a weapon which will protect you both from the evils of enemies and increase your sustenance?  They said: Yes, O Messenger of Allah.  He said: Call your Lord day and night, for “Dua” is the weapon of a believer.” Sahih Bukhari
“Dua” and afflictions challenge each other until the day of Judgment, yet “Dua” comes out victoriously even if the afflictions are certain to happen.” Sahih Bukhari
"Our deeds depend on our intention.”  or “A believer’s intention is better than his deed.” Sahih Muslim

Al Hamd

Abu Ja`far bin Jarir said, "The meaning of Al-Hamdu Lillah (all praise and thanks be to God) is: all thanks are due purely to Allah (Al'Mighty God), alone, not any of the objects that are being worshipped instead of Him, nor any of His creation

Further, Ibn Jarir commented on the Ayah, Al-Hamdu Lillah means, "A praise that Allah (Al'Mighty God) praised Himself with, indicating to His servants that they too should praise Him, as if Allah had said, `Say: All thanks and praise is due to Allah.' It was said that the statement, (All praise and thanks be to Allah), entails praising Allah by mentioning His most beautiful Names and most honorable Attributes. When one proclaims, `All thanks are due to Allah,' he will be thanking Him for His favors and bounties.''

Hamd is more general, in that it is a statement of praise for one's characteristics, or for what he has done. Thanks are given for what was done, not merely for characteristics. 
"Al" before "Hamd" encompasses all Types of Thanks and Appreciation for Allah (Al Mighty God)

Hafs mentioned that `Umar said to `Ali, "We know La ilaha illallah, Subhan Allah and Allahu Akbar. What about Al-Hamdu Lillah'' `Ali said, "A statement that Allah liked for Himself, was pleased with for Himself and He likes that it be repeated.'' Also, Ibn `Abbas said, "Al-Hamdu Lillah is the statement of appreciation. When the servant says Al-Hamdu Lillah, Allah says, `My servant has praised Me.'' Ibn Abi Hatim recorded this Hadith.

The Virtues of Al-Hamd 
Imam Ahmad bin Hanbal recorded that Al-Aswad bin Sari` said, "I said, `O Messenger of Allah! Should I recite to you words of praise for My Lord, the Exalted, that I have collected' He said,(Verily, your Lord likes Al-Hamd.)'' An-Nasa'i also recorded this Hadith.

Mohib Means...

Mohib is essentially made up of two words.


Mainly the verb Uhib (اُحِبْ) which translates as Lover/Loving in the Arabic language.


UHIB.


Mo derives from the Hindi word Mohabbat (मोहब्बत) which means Love.


The 'Mo' is placed in this name along with 'uhib' as a testament
which uses the simplification of the full name 'Mohammed'. 


MO.


Mo & Uhib joined create an original meaning all together; 


Mo + Uhib = Mohib


MOHIB - مُحِبْ
One Who Loves Mohammed 
(Prophet of Islam, Peace be upon him).
