00:00:00--> 00:00:05

Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatu Baraka, everyone, I pray you all well

00:00:06--> 00:00:07

into next Are we

00:00:09--> 00:00:27

the man recited from surat Ibrahim, amongst other sources, and the ayah that I would like to share with you is Allah subhanho wa Taala same with the Nora bucola in Chicago Toma as Eden kumala. In cafaro tomb in either be Russia did

00:00:29--> 00:00:30

Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:00:31--> 00:00:33

saying that when your Lord

00:00:35--> 00:00:42

decreed and stipulated that if you are thankful and grateful, then Allah subhanho wa Taala will increase for you.

00:00:43--> 00:00:44

And if you are ungrateful,

00:00:46--> 00:00:46

then

00:00:48--> 00:00:51

the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala is severe.

00:00:54--> 00:01:08

Gratitude brothers and sisters in Islam is is part of the faith. And it's part of humanity. It's part of good manners, good morals, and good etiquette.

00:01:09--> 00:01:20

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and this is with regards to humanity taught us that the person who does not thank the people or can't thank the people, then he or she will fail in thanking Allah.

00:01:22--> 00:01:38

Why, because thanking each other is considered the lesser thanks, was thanking Allah is considered the greater thanks. If you can't thank each other and you fail with the lesser things, then no doubt, you will have a problem with the greater thanks.

00:01:41--> 00:01:57

So from the student needs to thank other people and realizing that by us thanking them, we are assisting ourselves and thanking Allah. And we must thank Allah because Allah has promised that if we do so he will increase for us. And if we don't, then this punishment is severe.

00:01:59--> 00:02:10

And with regards to thanking Allah subhanho wa Taala and being grateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala they no doubt, disbelief is the greatest show of

00:02:13--> 00:02:14

lack of appreciation

00:02:16--> 00:02:22

and lack of graciousness, and being grateful. This belief is

00:02:23--> 00:02:30

the greatest evidence, right? That the person that this disbelief stems from, is not grateful.

00:02:32--> 00:03:11

And doesn't show gratitude to Allah. Because how can you disbelieve in Allah or associate partners with him, just believe in the message of the messenger. When this Allah subhanho wa Taala, Allah gave you life, and gave you a chance to enter agenda, and create agenda and gave you all your faculties, your senses, your abilities, to see, to live, to feel, to touch, to smell, right to have a heart that works without you even needing to think about it work, you don't have to constantly remember that your heart needs to beat for you to stay alive.

00:03:12--> 00:03:27

You don't have you don't have to think about breathing it happens by the power of Allah, your heart beats by the power and will of Allah. And even if you forget about it used to live and carry on living if Allah just put your life in your hands in that you had to remember

00:03:28--> 00:03:49

you being alive to live and let's be honest, brothers and sisters in Islam, we know how easily we forget a plethora of things today, less important than living knowed up. So all these are blessings from Allah the food that we eat, the financial standing that we have the material well being that we enjoy the communities, the friendships, the families, relationships,

00:03:50--> 00:03:50

right.

00:03:52--> 00:03:57

So many blessings Allah subhanho wa Taala gives a new disbelieve in him this is the greatest show off of,

00:03:59--> 00:04:12

of, you know of lack of gratitude. And the opposite is true. The Greatest Show of gratitude and being gracious, is to believe in a love the way

00:04:15--> 00:04:15

he's taught us.

00:04:18--> 00:04:20

I was about to say the way he deserves to be believed.

00:04:21--> 00:04:24

But Subhana Allah, Allah is so great

00:04:26--> 00:04:40

that you know who from amongst us can give a lies How can do and that is why I will add on from this and say that from being grateful to Allah is seeking forgiveness for your inability to truly

00:04:41--> 00:04:56

show Allah subhanho wa Taala your gratitude how many of us seek forgiveness from not being able to thank Allah the way he deserves to be thanked brothers and sisters. I mean, we're not talking about thanking, right, we're talking about seeking forgiveness from not having the ability to

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

know Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us

00:05:00--> 00:05:28

The Greatest Show of gratitude is to believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala with all of your heart and all of yourself, then the greatest show of gratitude is in you following the directives of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that you worship Allah how he wants to be worshipped and you speak how Allah wants you to speak and you live how Allah wants you to live and you you move how allows you to move and you you become constant how Allah wants you to become constant. You always thinking about Allah directives over you and accordingly

00:05:30--> 00:05:52

you live this from the issue of gratitude. Some people feel that no gratitude is when I just say have hamdulillah Yes, that is gratitude and that should be done that is important. We must say Alhamdulillah, Allah Subhana Allah, Allah, Allah in the line, Allahu Akbar. And as we've said in previous episodes, brothers and sisters, that when you do this Allah He will do for us to be in debt. But yes, you must do it. It's great rewards in

00:05:55--> 00:06:09

saying that hamdulillah is from thanking Allah. If Allah gives you a good job and you give in charity, this is from your showing gratitude to Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah and Allah will reward you and increase for you as allies promised, if you show gratitude, Allah will increase for you. But if you are ungrateful,

00:06:10--> 00:06:18

right, and we said COVID is the highest form of ungratefulness. And then there's other forms after that, if you are ungrateful than the punishment of Allah Sufi.

00:06:22--> 00:06:45

So once we understand that, saying, Alhamdulillah, and giving charity and so on and so forth, this is all functioning thanks to Allah we must not forget that the greatest sign of gratitude is worshiping Allah to the best of our abilities trying to worship Him as He deserves to be worshipped. And that includes then taking care of taking care of the dues and staying away from the don'ts. This is from

00:06:47--> 00:06:55

the actionable ways of showing gratitude to Allah. And yes, thanks and gratitude is shown through action as Allah subhanho wa Taala says in his book mailloux Allah

00:06:57--> 00:07:05

Allah commands elderwood, the family of Deadwood, to show gratitude in action Ehrman through action through being busy, right,

00:07:06--> 00:07:15

bodily action, action of the heart, action of the tongue, bringing all these entities together for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And through this we

00:07:18--> 00:07:45

we show gratefulness to Allah, brothers and sisters in Islam This concept is very important and so important that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told me that after every Salah one of the drives you should make is Allah. Allah the clicker or Shu clicker wasn't any better tick, that Allah assist me in, in remembering you and thanking you and worshiping you properly. key word here thanking you assist me in thanking also, from the morning and evening do as I already do.
