What does Gratitudemean in Islam?“Example from the Quran about ingratitude”“How can I go beyond just feeling moregrateful to actually BEING a more gratefulperson?”“What is the result of BEING grateful?”
The Bani Israel and their Ingratitude And [recall, O Children of Israel], when Moses said to His people, "Remember the favor of Allah upon you when He saved you from the people of Pharaoh, who were afflicting you with the worst torment and were slaughtering your [newborn] sons and keeping your females alive. And in that was a great trial from your Lord. (Surah Ibrahim, Verse 6)
The Bani Israel and their Ingratitude• They were given shelter.• They were gives food: Mann and Salwa.• They were given water: 12 water springs.• But they wanted more and more.
Why should we be Grateful? Do you not see that Allah has made subject to you whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth and amply bestowed upon you His favors, [both] apparent and unapparent? But of the people is he who disputes about Allah without knowledge or guidance or an enlightening Book [from Him]). (Surah Luqman, Verse 20)
What do YOU need to do?• Be grateful to: • Allah • People (Friends and Family and Everyone!)• If you feel like complaining, immediately count 3 blessing you have.• Remind yourself of the favors which are important to you. Being Grateful = Countless Blessings and finally Jannah in the Hereafter!!
