Gratitude leads to success


Published on

We usually take being thankful as only verbal. We thank Allah (God) only when our prayers have been answered, when we feel blessed, when we accomplish our materialistic goals or when we achieve success in our lives.

Gratitude leads to success

  2. 2. The difference between ‘thanking Allah’ and ‘being thankful’ to Allah”. I think that there is a difference between ‘thanking Allah’ and ‘being thankful’. Before reading the Holy Quran and getting to know Allah, I used to think the two were the same, that thankfulness meant just saying only ‘thank you’ or Alhamdulillah to Him.
  3. 3. But what I realized after reading the Holy Quran: •First of all, thankfulness is a behavior, an attitude, a state of mind that I need to maintain through out my life.
  4. 4. •Secondly, I don’t just have to ‘thank Allah’ I have to ‘stay thankful’ to Allah. •Being thankful does not mean to thank Allah only once or twice whenever He gives me what I want or when He blesses me with something.
  5. 5. •Being thankful means I have to thank Him whether He blesses me or not, whether He answers my prayers or not, whether I’m in hardship or at ease in my life. I should trust Him and I should be satisfied with whatever He has provided me.
  6. 6. How to become a thankful person? We don’t usually realize the blessings around us, we just focus on the things we want and pray for, or the things that we don’t have in our lives. Why?
  7. 7. 1.Because of jealousy. 2.Because we compare ourselves with others. 3.Because we are too busy focusing on what others have. 4.Because we completely forget about the blessings that Allah has given us.
  8. 8. So it is very important for us to realize the blessings and bounties of Allah on us. A thankful believer must: •Realize all the blessings, favors and grants of Allah and should also know that none of these are his right.
  9. 9. •Utilize them correctly and righteously. The way Allah has asked a Momin (believer) to. •A thankful believer should stay pleased; happy and content. He should be satisfied with the blessings given by Allah and then openly announce this state of mind, not only verbally, but also practically in his daily attitude.
  10. 10. •It’s also important to stay down to earth while being obedient and following completely the instructions and commands of Allah and His Holy Prophet (PBUH) to become a thankful person.
