ALLAH WILL INCREASE HIS BLESSINGS ON THOSE WHO ARE THANKFUL - Ebru ALTAN
We are all in need of Allah. Our lifes, the breath we take, our talks, our movements are all in control of Allah and they all happen by the Will of Allah.
Allah created all people with lots of inability and in need of Himself. But they are not aware of this. A vast majority of people thinks that everything develops spontaneously, or that they acquire everything by their own efforts. Whereas everything and every stuation is created by Allah. All the blessings are bestowed upon people by Allah and Allah is the One Who gives them to those He will. Most people neglect to give thanks to Allah for the blessings He bestows upon them however the first word they utter when others give them a present is "thanks". Whereas as Allah states in the 18th verse of Surah an-Nahl, he give countless blessing to those in their whole life.
If you tried to number Allah’s blessings, you could never count them. Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (Surah an-Nahl, 18)
Satan prevents most people from being thankful to him. He makes people ignore Allah’s blessings. Allah states this in Surah Al Araf;
Then I will come at them, from in front of them and behind them, from their right and from their left. You will not find most of them thankful.’He said, ‘Get out of it, reviled and driven out. As for those of them who follow you, I will fill up Hell with every one of you.’ (Surah Al-A’raf 17-18)
Giving thanks to Allah for everytinhg is one of the most important characteristics of believers. We know everything is created by Allah and we always give thanks to Him for our health, beauty, wealth, knowledge, wisdom, understanding, insight shortly for all the things we have material and spiritual.
There is a secret in the Quran. Allah states that he will increase His blessings on those who are grateful. For example Allah grants more health to those who gives thanks to Him for the health. He will increase the wealth of those who give thanks to Him for wealth.
And when your Lord announced: "If you are grateful, I will certainly give you increase, but if you are ungrateful, My punishment is severe."' (Surah Ibrahim: 7)
Being thankful is a sign of the believers love of Allah. Those who are thankful have the insight and capability to see the beauties and blessings that Allah creates. Those who disbelieves or unthankful to Allah only see the imperfections and faults. And because of that they are always unhappy and discontented.
Whereas believers never forget that Allah creates everything with good and even if the things don’t goes by the way they want they still be thankful to Allah. In every stuation they turn Allah with sincerety and and they are always thankful. Under the hardest conditions they trust Allah and know there is good in every event. Believes always hope gift of Paradise from Allah if they rejoice and feel thankful.
Therefore, Allah promises to believers to expand His blessings on His grateful servants both in the life of this world and in the hereafter, because of their trust and blessings to Him
No! Worship Allah and be among the thankful. (Surah Az-Zumer)
