God has introduced people as being ungrateful and thankless, meaning they are very ungrateful. People are ungrateful beings. If two people are sitting next to each other in a taxi, or in a gathering for breaking the fast, and one asks, “What’s new?” they start to talk ungratefully. They list all the problems, one by one.
Yes, these problems exist. But, praise the Lord, you are healthy, and God has given you a long life with dignity. There is safety and other blessings in society, yet a person states the problems first. The culture of ungratefulness is a culture in which people see the empty half of the glass, even if just the top of the glass is empty.
Such an attitude exists in people. Some people have sunk deeply into this attitude. They get upset, depressed, and angry too. This attitude of being ungrateful has become very ingrained. They consider being ungrateful to be something very serious. You tell them, “Sir! Remember all of your blessings. Be a little happy because of them! Was it good if you had cancer or something now?”
I am coming here after going to visit two people. One was in the hospital and one at home due to accidents. In a moment, a healthy youth was stricken with such a situation. We should thank God. We have gone on trips many times without being hurt. God dislikes this attitude in us very much. In conclusion, if God wants to highlight a fault in people, it’s ungratefulness.
This verse may be strange to you. Many people have never heard it. That’s because they don’t usually make a poster out of this verse. But, you should. It’s an admonishment. It says, “Perish the human! How unthankful he is!” (Qur’an 80:17) People would ask the Messenger of God (s), who was crying all the time, \"Why do you bother yourself so much?\" You are the dearest to God. He’d say, “I’m afraid I won’t thank Him enough.” This means, he worried he may be unthankful.
Our situation is clear! We should evaluate each of our attitudes to see if there is ungratefulness in it. Ungratefulness is like bad weather. It’s like Autumn, which causes the leaves to fall. It’s like a chill, which is very annoying. Ungratefulness definitely accompanies all sins. We have to be very careful of this attitude. Show Less >>
