Do not forget to say Thank you! by Yoel Benhabib

“Truly, God is full of bounty to mankind, but most men thank not.”

Quran 2:243

If there is something that we can never forget is to be thankful. How many times have we seen people that, after obtaining what they wanted, they simply move away without even saying “Thank you” to those who did them well! This is simply a display of egotistical characteristics present in those who have no empathy neither care for his neighbor but only asks: What’s in it for me?

One of the major ingratitudes is to forget to thank God for the many miracles and gifts he gives us in our life. How certain are the words in the Holy Quran when it states that “most men thank not?” The Quran clearly identifies the problem as some kind of ingratitude inherent to men, something hidden within but that at times surfaces as one of the crudest realities in humankind.
