ART TO EXPRESS GRATITUDE TO ALLAH

‘Alhamdulillah’ is a phrase that pervades the life of a Muslim every day. In English, ‘Alhamdulillah’ means “All Praise is for Allah’ or ‘Praise be to Allah’. From breathing and eating and living a healthy life to winning awards, making big money and earning fame – for every neyamat, big and small, (seemingly) ordinary and extraordinary, tangible and intangible, a believer must always feel and express his gratitude to Allah for His Mercy and Grace. Because were it not for Allah’s Mercy and Grace, we would not have existed, forget experiencing life. It comes as no surprise therefore that several Muslims look for ‘best Alhamdulillah art’ or ‘best Alhamdulillah art online, so that they can decorate their homes with frames that have ‘Alhamdulillah’ written in calligraphic font.

The foremostchapter of the Holy Quran, Surah Al Fatiha, starts with ‘Alhamdulillah’. The opening ayatof the surah is ‘Alhamdulillah-ir-RabbilAalameen’ which is Arabic for ‘Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds’

In the Quran(Chapter 14, Verse 7), it is written: “And remember when your Lord proclaimed, ‘If you are grateful, I will surely increase you in favour. But if you deny indeed, my punishment is severe.’”

Suhaib reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) 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 Allah, thus there is a good for him in it, and if he gets into trouble and shows resignation (endures into patiently), there is good for him in it.” [Sahih Muslim]

It is important to be noted that Allah does not need any gratitude from us. As a matter of fact, Allah is in no need of any of our acts of worship. Instead, we need to express our gratitude to Allah for our sake, our benefit. Frequent utterance of ‘Alhamdulillah’ keeps us positive and humble. It infuses humility in times of delight or progress. It infuses optimism in times of stress or sorrow. When we are in a neutral state (neither deep sorrow or extreme happiness), we should still make it a habit to say ‘Alhamdulillah’ as we are in a continuous state of blessing even though we don’t realise it.. For instance, after we wake up in the morning or finish our food, we should say ‘Alhamdulillah’. These are routine aspects of life, but imagine, would we be able to live if we didn’t wake up or eat?

Got food on your table? Say ‘Alhamdulillah’. Reached home from office? Say ‘Alhamdulillah’. Spoke to your mother on the phone? Say ‘Alhamdulillah’.
