Allah SWT praised the first prophet sent to man on earth, Prophet Nooh (SAS) due to him being grateful. Allah says (what means) in Surah Al Isra 17:3: ??Off spring of those whom we carried with (Nuh)! Verily he was a grateful servant.??

Gratitude is the first instruction given to man as soon as he begings to comprehend.

*Allah says (what means) in Surah Luqman 31:14 ?? And we have enjoined on man (to be dutiful and good) to his parents. His mother bore him in weakness and hardship upon weakness and hardship and his weaning is in two years ? give thanks to Me and to your parents. Unto Me is the final destination??.

Allah SWT specified it as one of the main qualities of a person who sets himself as a good example for others to follow. He says regarding Prophet Ibraaheem (SAS):

Surah 16 An-Nahl

?? Verily, Ibrahim was an Ummah (a leader having all the good righteous qualities), or a nation, obedient to Allah, Hanif (ie to worship none but Allah) and he was not one of those who were Al-Mushrikum (polytheists, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah, and those who joined partners with Allah)??

??( He was) thankful for His (Allah?s) Favours. He (Allah) chose him ( as an intimate friend) and guided him to a Straight Path (Islamic Monotheism ? neither Judaism nor Christianity).

Therefore, Gratitude is one the objectives that man is commanded to accomplish.

Gratitude is one of the ranks of belief, which can be extracted from the fifth verse of Surah Al Faatihah, what means: ?? It is You we worship and You we ask for help??.

Allah SWT makes gratitude a reason for attaining more of His bounties.

#It is a means to preserve the favours of Allah SWT upon a person

#It is extracted from Ash-Shakoor, which is one of the Names of Allah, and which implies gratitude.

#Those who are grateful are very few in number.

Gratitude results in more favours from Allah SWT. Gratitude is having one?s heart devoted to loving the One bestowing the favours, having the limbs obedient to Him and having the tongue repeatedly mentioning Him, praising Him and glorifying Him.
