To speak gratitude is curteous and pleasant,
To enact gratitude is gorgeous and noble,
But to live gratitude is to touch heaven and make it a save haven.
Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues after Piety,
But the parent of all others including Purity,
For it paves way for a host of other very positive qualities to emerge.
Gratitude to Allah makes a good sense of our past,
Brings peace for today and promises a better tomorrow for us,
Which of Allah’s favour would you deny?
If He had created you a Monkey, would you have had a choice?
If He had made you a Donkey, would you have complained?
If He had made you blind, unable to read this; would you deny his bliss?
Wouldn’t we rather cultivate the ‘Attitude of Gratitude’ to Almighty Allah subhanahu wata’ala and earn more of His love and mercy?
Gratitude is the least of virtues,
Ingratitude, the worst of vices,
AlhamduliLlaah Robil ‘alameen!
