Consequences of Ingratitude

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

My Shaykh, Hazrat Maulana Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Saheb (Rahmatullahi ‘alayh)  mentioned that when people do not appreciate a ‘Ni’mat’ (bounty) of Allah Ta’ala, Allah Ta’ala sometimes snatches away that bounty, whether material or spiritual, and grants it to someone who would appreciate it.

The Kuffaar of Makkah Mukarramah did not appreciate and value the priceless treasure in the form of our Beloved Rasul, Sayyidina Muhammad (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam), so Allah Ta’ala took him away from them and blessed the land and people of Madina Munawwarah with his presence and residence.

They not only welcomed him, but opened their hearts and homes even to his companions, who had suffered severe persecution with him in Makkah Mukarramah.

We should therefore appreciate the gifts of Allah Ta’ala and make “Shukr ” before they are taken away.

[Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel Saheb (Rahmatullahi 'alayh)]
