Bismillaahir Rahmanir Raheem Wal Hamdulillaahi was Salaatu was Salaam ala nabiyinna Muhammad [sallAllahu alaihi was Sallam] wa la aalihi was sahbihi wa man wala

amma ba'd

AsSalaamu alaikam wa rahmatullah wa barakatuhu

The Majority of the following advice was given by the brother Hasan Somali on the cd 'Which of the Favors of Your Lord will you deny?'
which I believe to be a very beneficial reminder that all of us should have in our homes, that is why I have made brief notes and posted them here. The cd is available at CD@SalafiPublications.Com ,bi'ithnillah the cd nos is C9.019CD  .

How many of us are truly grateful to the one who created us, sustains us and provided innumerable blessings upon us?

Do we truly Thank HIM as we should?

Ibnul Qayyim [rahimahullah] comments on showing thanks by mentioning that to attain TRUE thankfulness TO Allah, there are 5 affairs that a person must have:

1.That a person surrenders and submits to ALLAH

2.That the person loves the one who has blessed him. i.e ALLAH

3.That a person recognises the blessings of ALLAH upon him

4.That a person praises ALLAH for blessing him with this bounty

5.That a person does NOT use that blessing to do anything that displeases ALLAH

So as our Great Scholar Ibnul Qayyim Al Jawziyyah [rahimahullah] mentioned these are the conditions for true thankfulness towards Al-Maalik, other Great Scholars of the Past have mentioned that

Thankfulness has to be attested to by the Tongue, by the Heart and by the Limbs, and the manner in which we show Thanks to Allah upon the limbs is to stay away from sin.

To sum up we should be grateful, Praise Allah and show Thanks to Allah for the Blessings that Allah has bestowed upon us and to receive more of Allah's Blessings HE has told us what we should do when ALLAH says:

And [remember] when your LORD proclaimed "If you give thanks (by accepting Faith and worshipping none but Allıh), I will give you more (of My Blessings), but if you are thankless (i.e. disbelievers), verily! My Punishment is indeed severe." (Ibrahim 14:7)

and as ALLAH say HE rewards those who give thanks and are grateful

'As a Favour from Us, thus do We reward him who gives thanks (by obeying Us).' (Al-Qamar 54:35)

and HE says

"Verily, your Lord is full of Grace for mankind, yet most of them do not give thanks." (An-Naml 27:73)

So lets strive to be amongst the few, [who are truly grateful to ALLAH]

So after this reminder to myself and then to you the next question applies:

'Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny?' (Ar-Rahman 55:13)

And lets not forget being guided to Islaam is the Greatest Blessing.

'All the praises and thanks be to Allah, to Whom belongs all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth. His is all the praises and thanks  in the Hereafter, and He is the All-Wise All-Aware.' (Saba' 34:1)

Subhanak-Allahumma  wa bihamdik, ash-hadu la ilaha illa Anta, astaghfiruka wa atubu ilaika

Was Salaamu alaikam wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuhu

Abu Abdir-Razzaq Amjad bin Ayub

Abdullah b.Umar May Allah be pleased with them both said:
'Every bidah(religious innovation) is misguidance, even if people think it is good.'
