Why do we forget Shukr?

1. True worship and being on the side of Allah:
“If you disbelieve, then verily, Allah is not in need of you, He likes not disbelief for His slaves. And if you are grateful (by being believers), He is pleased therewith for you. (39:7)
2. True worship means sincere thankfulness to Allah:
“…And be grateful to Allah if it is [indeed] Him that you worship.” (2:172)
3. Gratitude is one of the purposes of our creation:
“And Allah has extracted you from the wombs of your mothers not knowing a thing, and He made for you hearing and vision and intellect that perhaps you would be grateful.” (16:78)
4. Shukr leads to abundance in Allah’s favors:
“If you are grateful, I will surely give you more and more” (Ibrahim 14:7).
5. The opposite of Shukr (gratitude) is Kufr (disbelief):
“So remember Me; I will remember you. And be grateful to Me and do not deny Me. (2:152)
6. The blessing of Imaan:
“Had it not been for the Grace and Mercy of Allah upon you, indeed you would have been among the losers.”
7. Allah’s Mercy is for all, but most people will remain ungrateful:
“Have you not considered those who left their homes in many thousands, fearing death? Allah said to them, “Die”; then He restored them to life. And Allah is full of bounty to the people, but most of the people do not show gratitude.” (2:243)
