*Allah promises increased favours for those who are grateful. He says, what means in Surah 14. Ibrahim ?? And (remember) when your Lord proclaimed:
?? if you give thanks (by accepting Faith and worshipping none but Allah), I will give you more (of My Blessings)
; but if you are thankless (ie disbelievers), verily My punishment is indeed severe.??

*Allah loves gratitude and the deeds of the grateful. He says what means in Surah 39. Az-Zumar ( The Groups)
??If you disbelieve, then Verily, Allah is not in need of you; He likes not disbelief for His slaves. And if you are grateful (by being believers), He is pleased there with for you??.
The grateful people mentioned in the verse are those who remain steadfast upon belief during trials and who do not treat or recant on their belief. Some people verbally thank Allah during times of ease, but during trials they give up their faith. The truly grateful are those who express the true condition of their hearts during trials by remaining steadfast and continuing to thank Allah by their tongues, hearts and limbs. Additionally, this verse clarifies that the pleasure of Allah is achieved by being grateful to Him.

*Allah did not make the reward for the grateful subjects to any condition, as He did for other acts of worship, which He conditioned to His will; rather, Allah immediately mentions their reward; He says what means in Surah 3 Al-Imran (The Family of Imran)
??... And Allah will reward those who are grateful.??
...And We shall reward the grateful.??

*Allah informs us that one of Satan?s primary objectives is to prevent humans from being grateful; He says what means in Surah 7 Al Araf (The Heights or The Wall with Elevations) ?? Then I will come to them from before them and from behind them and from their right and from their left, and You will not find most of them as thankful ones (ie. They will be dutiful to You)??.

*Allah describes His grateful slaves to be few in number; He says what means in Surah 34.13: ?? The reason being that many people enjoy blessings and bounties from Allah, but fail to practice gratitude to Allah.??
