السلام علیکم ورحمتہ اللہ وبرکاتہ
I hope you all are in good health.
May Allah (S.W.T) bless us all with good health and make us all among His righteous slaves. May Allah (S.W.T) forgives all our sin and fulfill all our halaal desires. May Allah (S.W.T) accepts all our prayers.
Aameen ya rabbul Aalameen!

How many of you always say Alhamdulillah after waking up everyday?
How many of you always say Alhamdulillah after eating food?
How many of you always thank Allah (S.W.T) for each and everything in your life?
How many times in a day do you thank Allah (S.W.T)?
We don't always thank Allah for each and everything in our life. Sometimes we are too busy to even utter a word 'Alhamdulillah' after doing something. Sometimes we forgot when we are in the company of others. Sometimes we are so sad that we forget the blessings we have in our lives and become ungrateful to Him. There are so many times in our lives that we forget to thank Him for everything but Allah (S.W.T) never forget us. He is always there for us no matter how busy we are to remember Him. Allah (S.W.T) always loves us no matter how far we are from Him. He never stops loving us. He never stop blessing us. Even when we don't thank Him everytime, He still blesses us with so many things.
That's why He is Ar Rehman, Ar Raheem; the most gracious, the most merciful.
فَبِأَىِّ ءَالَآءِ رَبِّكُمَا تُكَذِّبَانِ
So which of the favors of your lord would you deny?
(Surah Ar Rahman 55:13)
The best ways a Muslim can thank Allah for all the blessings Allah has bestowed upon us, are as follows;
Firstly, thanks or gratitude means reciprocating kindness and giving praise to the one who has done good and kind things. The one who is most deserving of thanks and praise from people is Allah, may He be glorified and exalted, because of the great favours and blessings that He has bestowed upon His slaves in both spiritual and worldly terms. Allah has commanded us to give thanks to Him for those blessings, and not to deny them. He says (interpretation of the meaning):
“Therefore remember Me (by praying, glorifying). I will remember you, and be grateful to Me (for My countless favours on you) and never be ungrateful to Me” [2:152]
Secondly, the greatest ones who obeyed this command, and gave thanks to their Lord until they deserved to be described as shaakir and shakoor (thankful) are the Prophets and Messengers (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him).
Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“Verily, Ibrahim was an Ummah (a leader having all the good righteous qualities), or a nation, obedient to Allah, Haneef (i.e. to worship none but Allah), and he was not one of those who were Al‑Mushrikoon (polytheists, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah, and those who joined partners with Allah).
