How to Thank Allah

So many people come to us asking why it seems that they seem to have more bad things happen to them than good things.  Well it boils down to one simple question…When was the last time you thanked Allah?

It may sound strange but the reality is that very few people actually take the time to thank Allah when something good happens to them. So often we tend to focuss in on the bad things in our lives and complain about how miserable we are. But if we were to take the time to think about the good things in our lives and then fall to our knees and thank Allah…we would see that the good always outweigh the bad.

The next time you get a bit of good news, try falling down to your knees and thanking Allah. I guarantee that Allah will in turn keep the good things coming to you:)

    oh MaashaAllah sis Laila what a beautiful; and informative video lecture.I do have one question I have a bad left knee and I am having to pray in a chair I truly want to prostrate and I miss it ,it’s as though my prayer is not truly complete for me because I have to pray in a chair.How is a person in this situation to do this? I really am learning alot from your classes and I pray you continue to be blessed and continue to be able to teach your classes ,maashaAllah ,ameen.
    Thankfulness to Allah we can talk to Him just like I am talking to you in this message, no particular dua just talk to Him ,correct?subahanAllah
    It is also so comforting for me to know I can pray to Allah without having to speak arabic maashAllah
    I allowed this to be a reason for not praying to Allah as much as I probably would have had I not thought I had to make my duas and thankful prayers to Allah in arabic.Islam is easy ,and we are supposed to take the middle course so I have been making it hard for myself,subahanAllah.
    I thank Allah He has sent me back to your school maashaAllah so I will be able to learn,,,I am learning more in last few days since returning than the entire time I was away wa’lhamdulillah.

    MaashaAllah what you said the Prophet said SAW that the servant will be deprived because of the open sins we commit ,such a strong saying it really touched me and maashaAllah I was can see clearly now how I need to approach Allah with thankfulness.JazakiAllahu khayron sis.
    Beautiful video lecture!

  2. Alhumduliallah I am glad you benefited from the video and are learning from the website. Duaa means “talk with Allah”; this is what duaa is. So yes you can talk to Allah as you are doing here and you should do this as much as possible because it will bring you closer to him.

    If you can not prostate due to physical reasons, then you can just bow in a chair. Not being able to prostrate will not take away from your prayer.

    May Allah continue to bless you with knowledge and understanding of this deen.

    Allamdulillah, Takbeer, You always have a way addressing the issues that I am going through. By the way, what is the proper way to call a female Shaykh? As always, may you be rewarded in this temporal world and the eternal Hereafter.

    Why does Allah sometimes Not Answer Our Dua?

    • femida said,

      He knows when and what to give you. Trust him put all your faith in Allah.

  5. Wa Alaikoum Salaam,

    There are many reasons as to why your duaa may not get answered from number one – not following the ettiquettes of making duaa as given in the lecture series – or perhaps you are engaing in major sin, or perhaps you are not practising your religion as you should – or perhaps you need to be more patient.

    Be sure to join the Tawheed classed held daily by me at 2pm EST which is 7pm United Kingdom time.

  6. imran said,

    Assalamu Alaikum. Thank you for your reply.

    I’ve heard Allah may not respond to a Dua in this life even if a person is very pious and very religious. Allah may respond to the Dua in the hereafter.

  7. This is true.

  8. Maj'ness said,

    I am a practicing muslim. i pray 5 times a day, fast the occasional monday, thursday and friday. i have friends who are lesbians and i hang out with them sometimes, is this wrong. please enlight me because i don’t want to be commiting a sin without knowing.

    • Wa Alaikoum Salaam,

      Yes it is haram to hang out with these people because the prophet said you are what you associate with. To associate with lesbians means there is something wrong with you so leave these people alone and find God fearing Muslims to be friends with

    • Wa Alaikoum Salaam,

      I pray that you are married to a Muslim because islam only allows women to marry Muslim men. If your husband is Muslim but doesnt practice I suggest you consult with your local Imam so he can help you and your husband

  20. waqas said,

    i hav just recieved brilliant exam results alhamdulillah and i was wondering if there are any extra duaas to read in nafal salaat or is there another particular type of salaat to thank allah? if there is what niyaah should be made

  21. The prophet (sa) said the best duaa is the one that comes from your heart. You do not need a specific duaa.. talk to allah yourself and thank him from your heart.

    • There are no specific duaa needed to thank Allah. You simply thank him for whatever the good is that happened and you do it as shown in the video by prostrating and simply saying “Thank you for whatever it is”

  30. Jibran said,
