The Blessings from Allah

Apples are fruits.  
Carrots are roots.
Strawberries are sweet.
Bread is made from wheat.

Raisins are dried up grapes.
They can be in many shapes.
We grow round and juicy tomatoes,
And brown smooth potatoes.
Sweet honey comes from bees
Using nectar from flower trees.

Allah makes all these for us so
That we can be healthy and grow.
Before we throw food away.
Remember the poor who don't eat everyday.
