Praise and Thank God

PRAISE AND THANK GOD

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said God suggested turning a valley into gold for his use, but he replied: "No, my Lord, but let me have enough to eat and be hungry on alternate days. Then when I am hungry, I shall make supplication to Thee and make mention of Thee, and when I have enough (to eat) I shall praise and thank Thee." - Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 1353


PRAISE GOD EVEN IN ADVERSITY

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: "The first to be summoned to Paradise on the Day of Resurrection will be those who praise God in (both) prosperity and adversity." - Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 730


PRAISING GOD CAUSES SINS TO FALL

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) once came to a tree with withered leaves. He struck the tree with his staff and scattered the leaves. The Prophet then said: "(Saying) 'Praise be to God,' 'Glory be to God,' 'There is no diety but God,' and 'God is most great' causes sins to fall away just as the leaves of that tree were falling." - Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 737
