Is it time to give thanks?

 

 All praises and thanks be to Allah, Who created the heavens and the earth, and originated the darkness and the light; yet those who disbelieve hold others as equal with their Lord. 
(  سورة الأنعام  , Al-Anaam, Chapter #6, Verse #1)

  1. Asalaam o alaikum!
    when I start judging my blessings by comparison of material goods or dunya stuff, shukr usually whimpers in the corner:)

  2. Is there really a time not to give thanks? “If you tried to number God’s blessings, you could never count them. God is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful” (Surat an-Nahl: 18)
    I read this after I read your post:

    “The closest of the doors to Allah is the door of Shukr, and who does not in this time enter through it, does not enter. [This because] the ego-selves (nafs) have become thick and they are not affected by spiritual exercises and devotions or obedience, nor are they restrained by accounting (hisab) or argumentation. So if one wants to become immersed in happiness and blessing, he should absent himself from all of that and end his distance [from God], and all goodness promised from God we find connected with having no other desire than to give thanks. For as the Most High has said: “If ye are grateful, I will add more (favors) unto you.”[5]” from http://tijani.org/shukr/

    May we remember to thank the Almighty in all our moments. Aameen.
