My thoughts on a peoples’ relationship of their Creator & one another:

Standard

“It’s impossible to appreciate someone, if you don’t care about them; and, it’s impossible to care about someone, if you don’t love them; and, it’s impossible to love someone, if you don’t trust them; and, it’s impossible to trust someone, if you don’t respect them; and, it’s impossible to respect someone, if you don’t know them.”

My thoughts on Gratitude:

Standard

Gratitude:

Great are all the enumerable favors that Allah has given me.

Received without Him wanting payback, He gives for free.

And, He only requires that we devote ourselves to Him solely.

This service, which we owe our owner, is for Him exclusively.

I must always remind myself that Allah is my benefactor.

The obligation for thankfulness is only to Him, my master.

Under no circumstance am I to ever be arrogant & boastful.

Divine is His justice, and for sin, His punishment is wrathful.

Even with very little, I owe everything I have to Him.

My thoughts on appreciation & experience:

Standard

“A person will never appreciate peace, unless they experience war, and they will never appreciate joy, unless they experience pain, and they will never appreciate victory, unless they experience defeat, and they will never appreciate success, unless they experience failure, and they will never appreciate love, unless they experience hate.”
