10 Powerful Islamic Quotes On Gratitude

Salam Alaikum Beautiful. Peace Be Upon You.

In the Quran Allah says in Surah 14 Ibrahim aya 7  “If you are grateful I will give you more“. When we create an attitude of gratitude in our daily lives, it can really help us find more happiness more satisfaction and contentment in our lives.  It gives us new perspectives, we don’t see our problems as big as they are. With full trust in Allah (tawakkul) we know he is with us and will take care of us. In this aya when Allah says he will give us more, he doesn’t quantify it. He could give us anything that we need. psychologists today, even said that when we show gratitude for our blessings every day, the world around us changes.

Quotes as a whole have a very powerful effect on us. Whether it is verses from the Quran, Hadiths or citations from pious people, they inspire, motivate us to take actions or even try doing new things in our life. Alhamdulillah. Today I wanted to talk about Gratitude and how it is a blessing in itself as it is one of the most powerful emotion Allah gave us.

Our beloved Prophet Muhammad peace and blessing of Allah upon him said to always look at people who have less than we have, as it gives us a different perspective on our life. developing an attitude of gratitude overall, gives us more peace, satisfaction with our lives, and most importantly contentment with what we have. Acknowledging our blessings every day can even help with depression. Gratitude increases our happiness and as a result, it also improves our productivity we feel motivated to do more things as it boosts our energy level. when we realise how much blessings we have been given it changes everything.

So today, I wanted to point on gratitude with those beautiful and inspirational quotes.

You can use them as you wish there are here to inspire you and overall remember your blessings and what Allah gave you.
