3 main reasons that thanking God keeps us in peace and at the highest level of performance

فَٱذْكُرُونِىٓ أَذْكُرْكُمْ وَٱشْكُرُوا۟ لِى وَلَا تَكْفُرُونِ

remember Me; I will remember you. And thank Me, and never be ungrateful. 2:152

وَإِذْ تَأَذَّنَ رَبُّكُمْ لَئِن شَكَرْتُمْ لَأَزِيدَنَّكُمْ ۖ وَلَئِن كَفَرْتُمْ إِنَّ عَذَابِى لَشَدِيدٌۭ

And ˹remember˺ when your Lord proclaimed, ‘If you are grateful, I will certainly give you more. But if you are ungrateful, surely My punishment is severe.’”  14:7



فَكُلُوا۟ مِمَّا رَزَقَكُمُ ٱللَّهُ حَلَـٰلًۭا طَيِّبًۭا وَٱشْكُرُوا۟ نِعْمَتَ ٱللَّهِ إِن كُنتُمْ إِيَّاهُ تَعْبُدُونَ


So eat from the good, lawful things which Allah has provided for you, and be grateful for Allah’s favours, if you ˹truly˺ worship Him ˹alone˺. 16:114



وَمِن رَّحْمَتِهِۦ جَعَلَ لَكُمُ ٱلَّيْلَ وَٱلنَّهَارَ لِتَسْكُنُوا۟ فِيهِ وَلِتَبْتَغُوا۟ مِن فَضْلِهِۦ وَلَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُونَ


It is out of His mercy that He has made for you the day and night so that you may rest ˹in the latter˺ and seek His bounty ˹in the former˺, and perhaps you will be grateful. 28:73



نِّعْمَةًۭ مِّنْ عِندِنَا ۚ كَذَٰلِكَ نَجْزِى مَن شَكَرَ


as a blessing from Us. This is how We reward whoever gives thanks. 54:35

A commitment to gratitude gives you an opportunity for constant movement, and you will be able to keep your faith in God along the way. You should accept all the conditions of your life as they are, and in the best possible feeling, the feeling of gratitude, make a great effort to improve and grow in your life.

  1. Giving thanks increases more productivity in the present time: according to God’s words in the Holy Quran, the child inside man is naturally ungrateful and hopeless. If we do not consciously change the way we look at the moments of life, he will always be full of hopelessness in our minds. And ingratitude comes and shows us the conditions in such a way that we do our work hopelessly. This causes our productivity to decrease drastically over time.

When you make the commitment to see the situation in such a way that the feeling of gratitude is formed in you, this commitment causes you to move towards improving the situation and increasing this wonderful feeling in every moment. This move will make you do more things and finally get closer and closer to your highest level of productivity.


3 .The feeling of gratitude causes our dependencies to decrease and eventually reach zero: When you try to keep the feeling of gratitude awake in every moment of your life and in any situation, over time you will realize that: You are the one who gives energy to yourself by thanking God and you don’t need a foreign substance or a foreign person to be good at the moment. This shows that only by committing to thanking God in any situation, you can turn on the strong engine of your inner energy and remain in your best state and with the highest level of performance without the need of anything external.


In general, when you wake up in the morning, in any situation you are in, turn on your inner energy engine and look at your life through the filter of being grateful to God in any situation: by increasing productivity and moving towards permanent growth. And not depending on any external person or substance to be perfect, you will get closer and closer to your best self in all dimensions. You will make the best use of every moment of your life.
