Being grateful instead of complaining has mental and physical benefits
If you find yourself complaining often then you’re not alone. A study in the US found people complain 15 to 30 times a day on average. But focusing on gratitude and positive thinking has mental and physical health benefits.
Reframing negative thoughts and trying to come from a place of gratitude can not only help reduce stress, but it also has other benefits.
One main benefit of grateful people is that others are going to want to be around you more often.
Considered to be one of the highly esteemed virtues in Islam, gratitude is admired and praised in both the Holy Quran and Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
Muslims believe it to be recognition of God's blessings in any situation whether desirable or undesirable.
Gratitude is not only the heart and essence of Islam; it is also the key to attracting abundance, prosperity, peace, and success in one’s life.
Gratefulness, or Shukr in Arabic, is the path to loving Allah and the cure for sadness and materialism as well and is the motivation to do better tomorrow.
Allah commanded us to be grateful to him for all his blessings and to do Shukr all time for what he has provided us.
In chapter 2, verse 152 of the Holy Quran, Allah says: “Therefore remember me; I will remember you. And thank me, and never be ungrateful.”
