Nouman Ali Khan delivers an enlightening lecture on the Name of Allah – Ash Shakoor.
Allah calls Himself Ash-Shakoor which means He is the Most-Appreciative, the Most Grateful, the Rewarder of Good Works. He is the One who gives abundantly in response to little and appreciates the smallest deeds with an unlimited appreciation.
Allah says – “That He may give them in full their rewards and increase for them of His bounty. Indeed, He is Forgiving and Appreciative.
[Surah Fatir, verse 30]
We can derive benefits from this name to imbibe and inculcate the attributes in our lives by doing the following:
- Don’t expect anything in return from others for whatever you have done to make their life easier.
- Do good deeds no matter how small or trivial they seem at the time.
- Be patient and sincere.
- Be grateful.
- Appreciate people.
- Call upon Ash-Shakoor and He will surely respond to us.
