Be the one Who Shows Gratitude

The feeling of gratitude is so important that a non believer is called 'kafir', which means 'one who denies a truth' and also 'one who is ungrateful'. The Qur'an says that vanity is the main motive for man's denying the existence of God. Such a person is too vain to accept that he was created and is governed by a being whom he must thus acknowledge to be greater than himself and to whom he must be grateful.
A believer loves, and is grateful to, God for bounties He bestows upon him, but being aware of the facts that his good deeds, whether mental or physical, are far from being commensurate with divine favours, he is always anxious lest God should punish him, here or in the hereafter. He therefore love Him with great humility. One cannot be in such a mental state, without being almost all the time mindful of God. Remembering God is thus the life-force of faith, without which it fades and withers away. In the Qur'an, several examples depict the psychological state of people who are ungrateful to God:

"It is He who conveys you on both land and sea so that when some of you are on a boat, running before a fair wind, rejoicing at it, and then a violent squall comes upon them and the waves come at them from every side and they realize there is no way of escape, they call on Allah, making their religion sincerely His: "If You rescue us from this, we will truly be among the thankful." But then, when He does rescue them, they become rebellious in the earth without any right to do so. Mankind, your rebelliousness is only against yourselves. There is the enjoyment of the life of the world and then you will return to Us and We will inform you about what you did. " (Surah Yunus: 22-23)

"When harm occurs to you at sea, those you call on vanish - except for Him alone! But when He delivers you to dry land, you turn away. Man truly is ungrateful. Do you feel secure against Him causing the shore to swallow you up or sending against you a sudden squall of stones? Then you will find no one to be your guardian." (Surat al-Isra: 67-68 )
