Surat Ash-Shūraá (The Consultation) – سورة الشورى
فَمَا أُوتِيتُم مِّن شَيْءٍ فَمَتَاعُ الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا ۖ وَمَا عِندَ اللَّهِ خَيْرٌ وَأَبْقَىٰ لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَلَىٰ رَبِّهِمْ يَتَوَكَّلُونَ
So whatever thing you have been given – it is but [for] enjoyment of the worldly life. But what is with Allah is better and more lasting for those who have believed and upon their Lord rely | QS 42:36
Having a sense of gratitude is thus a great blessing and those of us who instill that sense within themselves not only seek Allah’s pleasure but embody a sense of happiness, relieving us of the many pressures and anxieties.
Although the blessings and benefits of gratitude are many, this highlights certain important ones that you should recognize and use as a means to motivate that sense within yourselves.
Gratitude is knowing that whatever we have is from Allah. Gratitude helps us focus our minds on Allah, something that has unfortunately become so difficult today on account of life’s distractions and attractions.
Gratitude, therefore, corrects our perceptions by reminding us that everything that happens to us doesn’t happen because of its own volition and thus we shouldn’t take matters for “granted”.
Therefore, let’s constantly remind ourselves of Allah’s bounties by expressing our gratitude to Him in prayers and at other times. Hello Tuesday, by the grace of Allah, let’s do you, Bismillah! 😊😇😊
