Today's Ayat for Tuesday, 2018-12-25 / 18 Rabi` al-thani 1440
And certainly We gave wisdom to Luqman, saying: Be grateful to Allah. And whoever is grateful, he is only grateful for his own soul; and whoever is ungrateful, then surely Allah is Self-sufficient, Praised.
-- Luqman 31:12 as rendered by Shakir
وَلَقَدْ آتَيْنَا لُقْمَانَ الْحِكْمَةَ أَنِ اشْكُرْ لِلَّهِ وَمَن يَشْكُرْ فَإِنَّمَا يَشْكُرُ لِنَفْسِهِ وَمَن كَفَرَ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ غَنِيٌّ حَمِيدٌ
IslamAwakened has been asked to add commentary to our Today's Ayat
This is today's comment:
Gratitude has been mentioned on over 70 different occasions in the Qur’an
In Chapter 55 of the Quran, titled “The Lord of Mercy,”
God asks the same question thirty-one times,
“Which of the favors of your Lord will you deny?”
Patience, gratitude, and conscious awareness of the ever-presence of our Creator is our foundation.
This is an OPINION.
We must always read the verse(s) for ourselves!
