5 hadiths highlighting importance of gratitude in Islam

  Pakrush Admin       Wednesday, July 8, 2020
Gratitude attracts God's mercy and abundance and it is also now a well-established psychological fact that a thankful attitude is a great predictor of well-being and a happy material life. 

Gratitude not only increases a person's faith in God and builds patience, assertiveness and strong character, it also multiplies their blessings. 

Here are 5 hadiths that shed light on the significance of gratitude (shukr). 

Hadith # 1

"One who eats gratefully has the status of one who fasts patiently" [Tirmidhi 2486]

See how a thankful attitude toward a blessing is as powerful as staying patient in the absence of that blessing. All you have to do is eat, drink and feel sincere thankfulness to the One Who brought that food to you with love, mercy and intelligence.

Hadith # 2 

"Allah is pleased with His slave if, when he eats something, he thanks Allah for it, and when he drinks something, he thanks Allah for it" [Muslim 2734]

Hadith # 3  

Aisha RA said that the Prophet SAAS entered upon her one day and saw a small piece of bread on the floor, so he picked it up and wiped it, then told her, "O Aisha, treat the blessings of Allah with respect, for when it departs from a household, it may never come back to them," [narrated by Ibn Abi'd Dunya]

Hadith # 4

"The messenger of Allah (SAAS) said: 'Speaking of Allah's blessings is gratitude and ignoring it is ingratitude (kufr). The one who does not give thanks for a small blessing, will not give thanks for a great blessing, and the one who does not give thanks to people will not give thanks to Allah. To be with a group is a blessing and to be alone is a punishment," [narrated by Abu'd Dunya]

Hadith # 5 

"Among the dua of the Prophet (SAAS) is: 'O Allah, help me to remember You, to give thanks to You and to worship You well,'" [Hisham Ibn Urwah
