Sleep is a great gift

2016-01-06 06:00

The Almighty God created mankind in pairs and among the means of their comfort he created sleep, which is a great divine gift. Sleep is a great source of relaxation for the entire creation - for rich as well as for the poor, for learned people as well as the illiterate ones, for kings as well as for labourers. This gift is made available equally and simultaneously for all.

Rather, experience shows that this gift is readily available to the poor and labouring class compared to the affluent and the elite class.

The latter class has all the means of comfort. They have comfortable homes. They have moderately warm and cold places. They have comfortable mattresses­ and pillows that are rarely available to the poor, but the gift of sleep not dependent upon the mattresses, pillows, cottages and bungalows.

It is purely a divine gift that is given by the Almighty God.

Often the poor with no means of comfort and without bed or bedding enjoy the best sleep in an open space.

Sometimes the affluent and the men of means suffer from insomnia and can only get sleep when they take sleeping pills.

Often the pills do not work either.

Not only that this great gift is given to all creatures -humans as well as animals, and it is given free of charge without working for it.

The Almighty has made it compulsory for everyone in a way that even if he wishes to keep awake because of load of work, sleep is imposed on him by the Almighty’s mercy so that his tiredness is removed and he is refreshed to work further. This arrangement is a wonderful means of providing rest and peace for man.

Lastly, we must truly appreciate this great gift and be thankful to the Almighty God at all times.
