Thankfulness (Shukr)

Allah Paak Jalla Shanahu says in Surah Baqarah 2, verse: 152

"So remember Me, I shall remember you. And always be thankful to Me and never be ungrateful to Me”

Today I’m going to talk about Thankfulness (Shukr).

Allah Paak Jalla Shanahu says in Surah Ibrahim 14, verse: 7

“And (recall) when your Lord proclaimed: ‘If you thank, I shall certainly increase (My blessings on) you, and if you are ungrateful, then My torment is surely severe”

Allah Paak Jalla Shanahu says in Surah al-Dahr ( al-Insan) 76, verse: 3

"Indeed We showed him the way (to understanding and insight for distinguishing between the Truth and falsehood) whether he (now) becomes thankful or continues to be ungrateful."

There are two categories of thankfulness:

  1. Thankfulness to Allah ta’ala / the Creator
  2. Thankfulness to the people / the creation

There are three levels of thankfulness:

  1. Thankfulness by heart / Shukr bi’l-qalb:
    This is when one acknowledges a blessing that has been granted to him. With regards to Allah subhana wa ta’ala, it is when one acknowledges that all blessings are from Allah subhana wa ta’ala; and people and things are just a means (waseela). This is also when one realises that he is unable to thank Allah subhana wa ta’ala. The thankfulness, we offer to Allah subhana wa ta’ala, is another blessing which comes from Allah subhana wa ta’ala.
    Prophet Hazrat Dawud (David) Alaiyhi’salaam once said, “My God, how can I thank You, when my thankfulness to You is itself a blessing from among Your gracious favours?” So Allah conveyed to him by way of inspiration (wahy), “now you have thanked Me indeed”.
  2. Thankfulness by tongue / shukr bi’l-lisan:
    This is when one is thankful and expresses his appreciation through speech. It is spoken appreciation for a blessing. One should thank Allah Subhana wa ta’ala and praise Allah subhana wa ta’ala for all the blessings Allah subhana wa ta’ala has bestowed upon him.
  3. Thankfulness by action / shukr bi’l-badan wa’l-arkan: This is thankfulness and gratitude for Allah’s blessings through action and following Allah Ta’ala’s commands.

Hazrat Aisha (R.A.) narrates that the beloved Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam) used to offer prayer at night (for such a long time) that his feet used to crack. I said, "O Allah's Apostle! Why do you do it since Allah has forgiven you your faults of the past and those to follow?" He (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam) said, "Shouldn't I love to be a thankful slave (of Allah)?' When he became old, he prayed while sitting, but if he wanted to perform a bowing, he would get up, recite (some other verses) and then perform the bowing.
(Bukhari)

Hazrat Abdullah ibn Ghannam (R.A.) narrates that the beloved Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam) said: If anyone says in the morning: "O Allah! Whatever favour has come to me, it comes from Thee alone Who has no partner; to Thee praise is due and thanksgiving,'! he will have expressed full thanksgiving for the day; and if anyone says the same in the evening, he will have expressed full thanksgiving for the night.
(Abu Dawud)

Hazrat Suhaib (R.A.) narrates that Aaqa Kareem (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam) said: Strange are the ways of a believer for there is good in every affair of his and this is not the case with anyone else except in the case of a believer for if he has an occasion to feel delight, he thanks (God), thus there is a good for him in it, and if he gets into trouble and shows resignation (and endures it patiently), there is a good for him in it.
(Muslim)

Hazrat Jabir bin Abdullah (R.A.) narrates that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam) said: If someone is given something, he

should give a return for it provided he can afford; if he cannot afford, he should praise him. He who praises him for it, thanks him, and he who conceals it is ungrateful to him.
(Abu Dawud)

Hazrat Jabir bin Abdullah (R.A.) narrates that the Beloved Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam) said: If someone is donated something and he mentions it, he thanks for it, and if he conceals it, he is ungrateful for it.
(Abu Dawud)

Hazrat Abu Hurayra (R.A.) narrates that the Messenger of Allah Sallallahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam (May Allah bless him and grant him peace) said, "If a man who is walking along a road finds a branch of thorns on the road and removes it, Allah ta’ala thanks him for doing it and forgives him."
(Malik)

Hazrat Abu Hurayra (R.A.) narrates that Allah's Apostle (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam) said, "While a man was walking on a road, he became very thirsty. Then he came across a well, got down into it, drank (of its water) and then came out. Meanwhile he saw a dog panting and licking mud because of excessive thirst. The man said to himself "This dog is suffering from the same state of thirst as I did." So he went down the well (again) and filled his shoe (with water) and held it in his mouth and watered the dog. Allah thanked him for that deed and forgave him." The people asked, "O Allah's Apostle! Is there a reward for us in serving the animals?" The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam) said, "(Yes) There is a reward for serving any animate (living being)."
(Bukhari)

Hazrat Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri narrates that the beloved Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam) said, "If anyone of you sees a dream that he likes, then it is from Allah, and he should thank Allah for it and narrate it to others; but if he sees something else, i.e., a dream that he dislikes, then it is from Satan, and he should seek refuge with Allah from its evil, and he should not mention it to anybody, for it will not harm him."
(Bukhari)

Hazrat Abu Bakr (R.A.) narrates that when anything came to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam) which caused pleasure (or, by which he was made glad), he prostrated himself in gratitude to Allah.
Dawud: Book 14 : Hadith 2768

Thanking others for gifts and favours etc, is a basic moral duty often ignored by people. Hazrat Junaid (Rahmatullah’ Alaiyhi) said, “Thankfulness means that you do not look upon yourself as worthy of the gracious favour you have received.”

Hazrat Abu Bakr ibn Jahdar ash-Shibli (Rahmatullah’ Alaiyhi) said, “Thankfulness means focusing attention on the source of the benefit, not focusing attention on the benefit itself”.

Hazrat Abu Uthman (al-Hira) (Rahmatullah’Alaiyhi) said, “The thankfulness of the common folk is for food and drink and clothing, while the thankfulness of the elite (shukr al-khawass) is for the spiritual values conferred upon their hearts”.

Hazrat Hisham ibn Urwa said that his father never brought food or drink, nor even a remedy which he ate or drank but that he said, "Praise be to Allah who has guided us and fed us and given us to drink and blessed us. Allah is greater. O Allah! We have found Your blessing with every evil, give us every good in the morning and evening. We ask You for its completion and its gratitude. There is no good except Your good. There is no god other than You, the God of the salihun and the Lord of the Worlds. Praise be to Allah. There is no god but Allah. What Allah wills. There is no power except in Allah. O Allah! Bless us in what You have provided us with and protect us from the punishment of the Fire!"     
(Malik) 

Now let me tell you an eyes opening hadeeth in which Aaqa Kareem (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam)predicted, what is happening now.

Hazrat Abdullah bin 'Amr bin al-As (R.A.) reported that Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam) said: How would you be, O people, when Persia and Rome would be conquered for you?  Hazrat Abdur Rahman bin Auf (R.A.) said: We would say as Allah has commanded us and we would express our gratitude to Allah. Thereupon Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam) said: Nothing else besides it? You would (in fact) compete with one another, then you would feel jealous, then your relations would be estranged and then you will bear enmity against one another, or something to the same effect. Then you would go to the poor emigrants and would make some the masters of the others.
(Muslim)

Today you are not thankful to Allah Subhana Wa Ta’ala. You have your own house. Your house is full of electronic things and furniture. Your wardrobe is full of clothes and shoes. You have latest model mobile and car. You have enough money in your bank account. Your Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam) did not enjoy these luxuries. The whole universe was created for him. He preferred a life like that of Masakeen. You have got all the facilities which make your life comfortable. But whenever asked, how is your business? How is your life? How are your matters? You are always complaining, most of you that you haven’t got enough or you haven’t got what you deserve for. You have stopped being content and thankful to Allah Subhana wa ta’ala. Even in this era of regression, you have more world (worldly things) as compare to your fore-fathers but you never realized, you never thought like that. Make a habit to say, Alhamdulillah, Alhamdulillahi Rabbil Aalameen. Don’t complain. Don’t complain of Allah in front of His creation, your fellow human beings. Whatever situation does he keep you in, don’t complain in front of His creation. Rather be content and thankful in front of His creation. Ask Allah Subhana Wa Ta’ala whatever you want. This should be the way of a common Muslim. Don’t ask Allah for which He has not given you and be content and thankful even if you don’t get anything. This is the way of His friends, Auliya Allah. This is Razi ba Razaye Haq i.e., being content and thankful in Allah’s Will. Now the choice is yours.

May Allah Subhana Wa Ta’ala grant us knowledge of Islam and help us to act upon the Islamic knowledge we already have.

  • May Allah Paak  enlighten our hearts with His Noor and grant us the ability to perform good deeds
  • May Allah Paak forgive our major and minor sins and protect us from the spiritual diseases like anger, jealousy, backbiting, pride and greed.
  • May Allah Paak protect us from the punishment of the grave & hellfire, and  enlighten our graves with His Noor
  • May Allah Paak mercy upon the entire Ummah.
