Mentioning and Being Thankful for Your Blessings

  • Gratitude may be in the heart through submission and humility.
  • Gratitude may be on the tongue through praise and acknowledgement.
  • Gratitude may be in the physical faculties by means of obedience and submission.

Madaarij al-Saalikeen (2/246)

Hence, some of the people of the past said: Whoever conceals a blessing has denied it, but whoever manifests it and spreads it has given thanks for it.

Ibn al-Qayyim (rh) said, commenting on that:

This is based on the words: “When Allah bestows a blessing upon a person, He loves the effect of His blessing to be seen on His slave.”

Madaarij al-Saalikeen (2/246)

It was narrated from ‘Umar ibn ‘Abd al-‘Azeez (may Allah have mercy on him) that he said: Remind one another of blessings, for mentioning them is gratitude.
