One of the most important duties which Allah (Subhana wa ta’ala)ordained on His slaves and made it obligatory on them is to show Him(Subhana wa ta’ala) gratitude,and to be thankful to Him . Showing gratitude to Allah (Subhana wa ta’ala) and being thankful to Him is a duty human beings owe to Allah(Subhana wa ta’ala).
Gratitude to Allah is praising Allah(Subhana wa ta’ala) or remembering Him (Subhana wa ta’ala) when He bestows a blessing on us. It is giving thanks to Allah(Subhana wa ta’ala) for the blessings that He is giving us, or has given us.
