No matter what you are going through, you can do with the help of Allah (SWT). Express your gratitude towards Him by “Alhamdulilah”. This beautiful word can do so much for you.
Suhaib reported that Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) said:
“Strange are the ways of a believer for there is good in every affair of his and this is not the case with anyone else except in the case of a believer for if he has an occasion to feel delight, he thanks Allah (SWT), thus there is a good for him in it, and if he gets into trouble and shows resignation (endures into patiently), there is good for him in it.” [Sahih Muslim]
It is as simple as making dua to Allah (SWT) for things to go the right in your life. The only thing that Allah (SWT) asks in return is your gratitude to Him. Make it a habit to say “Alhamdulillah” at every good news or at every good turn in your life. Not to forget, be thankful to Allah (SWT) for saving you from any calamity also.
In seeking to thank Allah (SWT), not only do you please Him, but you are sure to receive success in return – in abundance. Do not forget, Allah (SWT) loves those who thank Him. Be grateful throughout your day. When you wake up in the morning, when you eat or drink, when you give charity and more so when you listen to the Holy Quran, always say ‘Alhamdulillah’.
As the Quran says,
“And remember when your Lord proclaimed, “If you are grateful, I will surely increase you in favour. But if you deny indeed, my punishment is severe.” [Quran: Chapter 14, Verse 7]
