Ayah 23

Surah Al-Mulk, Ayah 23

Reflection Questions:

1. Allah created us, give us ears, eyes and heart for hearing, sight and intellect. Not just these but our other faculties as well. Are we thankful?
2. Are we using these abilities that Allah has blessed us with to obey Him, to act according to His commandments and to avoid His prohibitions?

Practical tips:

1. Write a gratitude journal and list down what you are thankful for every day. Say Alhamdulillah for every blessing.
2. What should we use our hearing, sight and intellect for?

فَاذْكُرُونِي أَذْكُرْكُمْ وَاشْكُرُوا لِي وَلَا تَكْفُرُونِ

Therefore remember Me, I will remember you, and be thankful to Me, and do not be ungrateful to Me.
[2:152]

وَآتَاكُم مِّن كُلِّ مَا سَأَلْتُمُوهُ وَإِن تَعُدُّوا نِعْمَتَ اللَّهِ لَا تُحْصُوهَا إِنَّ الْإِنسَانَ لَظَلُومٌ كَفَّارٌ

And He gives you of all that you ask Him; and if you count Allah's favors, you will not be able to number them; most surely man is very unjust, very ungrateful.
[14:34]

وَإِن تَعُدُّوا نِعْمَةَ اللَّهِ لَا تُحْصُوهَا إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَغَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ

And if you would count Allah's favors, you will not be able to number them; most surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
[16:18]

It is narrated by al-Mughira that the Prophet, (ﷺ) used to stand in the salah (prayer) or performed salah until both his feet or legs swelled. He was asked why (he offered such an unbearable salah) he said, "Should I not be a thankful slave?" [Al-Bukhari]

Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allah have mercy on him) said:
Gratitude may be in the heart, in submission and humility; on the tongue, in praise and acknowledgement; and in the physical faculties, by means of obedience and submission.
Madaarij al-Saalikeen (2/246)

May we become grateful servants of Allah.
