Gratitude: Wisdom From The Qur’an

Some of my personal thoughts on gratitude in the Qur’an.

And he gives you of all that you ask of him.
And if you should count the grace of God you could not calculate it.
Man is a wrongdoer, an ingrate.
(14:34)

And if you count the grace of God, you will not calculate it.
God is forgiving, merciful.(16:18)

And he smiled
Laughing at her speech
And he said:
My lord: direct thou me to be grateful for thy grace
Wherewith thou hast favoured me and my parents
And to work righteousness pleasing to thee
And make thou me enter by thy mercy among thy righteous servants.
(27:19)

And we gave Luqmān wisdom:
Be thou grateful to God.
And whoso is grateful:
He is but grateful for his soul.
And whoso denies:
God is free from need, praiseworthy.
(31:12)

And we enjoined upon man good conduct towards his parents.
His mother bore him with aversion
And brought him forth with aversion.
And the bearing of him and the weaning of him is thirty moons.
When he has reached maturity and reached forty years
He says: My lord: direct thou me to be grateful for the grace wherewith thou hast favoured me
And my parents
And to work righteousness pleasing to thee
And do thou right by me concerning my progeny
I turn to thee repentant
And I am of those submitted.
These are they from whom we accept the best of what they did and overlook their evil
Among the companions of the garden
The promise of truth which they were promised.
(46:15-16)
