Someone knocked your car but you came out without any scratches. Thank Allah What if your whole body was missed? It has happened to others. Each time something happens as a believer, my brothers my sisters, tell yourself and tell Allah I thank you, Oh Allah, it could have been worse. I thank you that it's not as bad.
