The way prophets thanked God


SHAFAQNA – It is narrated in the Divine Narration that Allah (SWT) revealed to Prophet Dawood (AS): O’ Dawood, thank your God; Dawood (AS) asked: How do I thank God, whilst thanking God deserves another thanking in itself? Allah (SWT) replied: O’ Dawood, I accept this confession of yours instead of thanking, and have become satisfied by that [1].

In another Divine Narration, Imam Sadeq (AS) narrated: Allah (SWT) revealed to Prophet Moses (AS): O’ Moses (Musa), Thank me in the appropriate way. Moses (AS) asked: O’ my God, how can I thank Allah (SWT) the appropriate way whilst any expression of gratitude towards God, is a blessing that has been granted to me by the Almighty? Allah (SWT) replied: O’ Moses, now that you realized even your thanksgiving is from God, you have fulfilled your gratitude towards God, the way that is appropriate to the Almighty [2].
