Have you ever been ungrateful

People need each other in this life. A person is unable to live alone. This means that this person gives the others something they need and he takes something else from them that he needs.

 

The Prophet may Allah honor him and give him well-being! directed his community to be grateful and not ungrateful. From Jâbir ibn Abdullâh it is recorded that he said: “The Messenger of Allah said: "Whoever is given something and whoever finds something should reward it with it. And if you don't find anything, you should praise it. Because whoever praises has thanked. And whoever hides it is ungrateful. And whoever adorns himself with something that was not given to him is like someone who wears two robes of lies. "" (Rated as good by Al-Albânî)

 

When others do good to someone and only receive ingratitude, it is evidence of meanness and inferiority of the soul. For noble souls know neither denial nor ingratitude, but always sincerely admit their preference to those who are favored.

 

The ignoble person, however, only rebels even more through what is good. If man does not confirm with his tongue the good things that come to him from Allah or the creatures and that his heart confirms, he is ungrateful and denies the graces.

 

Ingratitude is a reason to step into the fire:

 

If ingratitude and denial of goodness are habits of man, he is treading a path that leads into fire, may Allah protect us from it! From Abdullâh ibn Abbâs it is recorded that he said: “The Prophet said: “I was shown the fire. Most of its inhabitants were women who are ungrateful. "They asked," Are they ungrateful to Allaah? "He said," They are ungrateful to the Companion and ungrateful to kindness. If you have been kind to one of them all your life and she then sees something about you [that she doesn't like], she says: 'I've never seen anything good of you!'Narrated by Al-Buchârî)

 

He who does not thank people does not thank Allaah:

 

From An-Nu‘mân ibn Baschîr it is narrated that he said: “The Messenger of Allah said in a pulpit speech: “Anyone who is not grateful for the small is not grateful for the great. He who does not thank people does not thank Allaah. Talking about the grace of Allah is gratitude and not doing it is ingratitude. The community is a mercy and the diversion is an agony. "" (Rated as good by Al-Albânî)

 

In this way the Prophet pointed invite his community to be grateful and to thank those who give. One should even pray supplication for him, so that one is sure that he has been repaid. From Abdullâh ibn Umar It is reported that the Prophet may Allah honor him and give him well-being said: “He who seeks protection in Allah, protects him! And whoever asks you for Allah, give to him! And whoever invites you accept their invitation! And whoever comes to you with something good, reward it! And if you can't find anything to repay him, then pray supplication for him until you are convinced that you have repaid him! " (Classified as authentic by Al-Albânî)

 

Ingratitude is a cause of punishment and the offense of grace:

 

Al-Asma‘î said: "I heard a Bedouin say:" The sin that is most quickly punished is ingratitude to the good. ""

 

In the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allaah there is what testifies to this. The Prophet may Allah honor him and give him well-being said: “Allaah wanted to test three of the children of Israel, one with leprosy, one with hair loss and one blind. He sent an angel to them who came to leprosy sufferers and asked: "What is your favorite thing?" He replied: "A beautiful color, a good skin and that that disappears from me, which is why people are disgusted with me." He said: "Then he touched him, whereupon his evil disappeared from him and he acquired a beautiful color and beautiful skin." He asked: "What is your favorite property?" He answered: "The camel." "He said : “A female camel who was ten months pregnant was given to him. He said: "May Allaah bless you!"

 

He said: "Then he came to someone who was suffering from hair loss and asked:" What is your favorite thing? "He replied:" Beautiful hair and that it disappears from me, which is why people are disgusted with me. " said: "Then he touched him, whereupon his evil disappeared from him and he got beautiful hair." He asked: "What is your favorite fortune?" He answered: "The cow." "He said:" Then he became one pregnant cow. He said: "May Allaah bless you!"

 

 

He said: "Then he came to the blind man and asked:" What is your dearest thing? "He replied:" That Allaah should restore my sight and I can see people. "" He said: "Then he touched him, whereupon Allaah gave him back his eyesight. "He asked:" What is your favorite property? "He answered:" Sheep and goats. "" He said: "Then a sheep and cubs were given to him. So these two gave birth and that gave birth. ”He said,“ This one had a valley full of camels, this one a valley full of cows, and this one a valley full of sheep. ”

 

He said: “Then he came to the person who had the leprosy, in his image and form, and said,“ I am a poor man, I have no means of transport for my journey. Today only Allaah and then you are enough for me. I ask you for the one who gave you the beautiful color, the beautiful skin and the wealth, for a camel with whom I am content on my journey. "He replied:" I have many obligations. "He said:" As do I know you! Didn't you have the leprosy that made people feel disgusted with you? Weren't you poor, after which Allah gave you wealth? "He replied:" I have inherited this wealth only from ancestor after ancestor. "He said:" May Allah transform you back to what you were when you lie! " "

 

He said, “He went to the one who was suffering from hair loss in his own image and told him what he had said about him. He replied to him what the latter had replied to him. Then he said: "May Allaah change you back to what you were if you lie!"

 

 

He said: “Then he came to the blind man in his image and form and said:“ I am a poor man, I have no means for my journey. Today only Allaah and then you are enough for me. I ask you for the one who gave you sight, a sheep with whom I am content on my journey. "He replied:" I was blind, whereupon Allah gave me back my sight. Take what you want and leave what you want! For by Allaah, I will not plague you today for something that you take for Allaah. "He said:" Keep your fortune, for you have been tested by Allaah! He is satisfied with you and angry with your two companions. "" (Narrated by Al-Buchari and Muslim)

 

So woe to you for ingratitude! Thank those who do good and be among those who keep their word! For the noble one keeps friendship, even if it lasts for only an hour.
