Sawab al-A`amal, Page 234

أَحْسِنُوا جِوَارَ نِعَمِ اللَّهِ لا تَنْفِرُوها؛ فَقَلَّمَا زَالَتْ عَنْ قَوْمٍ فَعَادَتْ اِلَيْهِم.

Appreciate God’s blessings given to you, and let them not vanish, for a lost blessing will hardly be regained.
Holy Prophet Muhammad al Mustafā (s.a.w.w.)
Nahj al Fasahah; Tradition No. 227; Page No. 37&38

مَنْ أنْعَمَ عَلى عَبْدٍ نِعْمَةً فَلَمْ يَشْكُرْهَا فَدَعَا عَلَيْهِ اسْتُجِيْبَ لَهُ.

Cursing the one who remains thankless to the blessing bestowed on him will be effective.
Holy Prophet Muhammad al Mustafā (s.a.w.w.)

عَجِبْتُ لِلْمُسْلِم اِذا أصَابَتْهُ مُصِيْبَةٌ اِحْتَسَبَ وَصَبَرَ وَاِذا أصَابَهُ خَيْرٌ حَمِدَ اللَّهَ وَشَكَرَ

Masma bin Abdul Malik relates that Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (a.s.) was at Mina (in Makkah) when a beggar approached him. Imam (a.s.) ordered that a bunch of grapes be given to him. The beggar said, “I do not need these, if possible give me money.” Imam (a.s.) did not give him anything but said, “May Allah make you self-sufficient.” After this another beggar approached. Imam (a.s.) picked up three grapes from the bunch and offered them to him. The beggar picked them up and said, “All Praise is for Allah (only) who has given me sustenance.” Imam (a.s.) said, “Wait”, and he placed as many grapes as his hands could hold. Twice again he gave him the same quantity. The beggar thanked Allah again. Imam (a.s.) again stopped him and asked his slave how much money he had. The slave replied, “Twenty dirhams.” Imam (a.s.) ordered him to give these to the beggar. The beggar took the money and said, “All praise is for Allah alone. O Allah You are the sustainer, You are One, there is no partner for You. Imam (a.s.) again stopped him. Then the Imam (a.s.) removed his shirt and gave it to the beggar and said, “Wear it.” The beggar put the shirt on and thanked Allah who had bestowed him with the dress and made him happy. At this stage the beggar turned towards Imam (a.s.) and said, “O slave of Allah may Allah reward you for this.” After this he went his way. The narrator says that if the beggar had not addressed the Imam (a.s.) as such, Imam (a.s.) would have continued to give him gifts for his thankfulness to Allah.

عن النوفلي بإسناده قال: قال رسول الله : الطاعم الشاكر له من الأجر كأجر الصائم المحتسب، والمعافي الشاكر له من الأجر كأجر المبتلي الصابر، والمعطي الشاكر له من الأجر كأجر المحروم القانع.

Al-Nufli narrated that Allah's Prophet (a.s) said: “The one who eats and gives thanks has the same reward as the one who fasts (who will be rewarded in the Hereafter). The reward of one who is healthy and gives thanks is the same as the one who is suffering and is patient. The reward of one who gives charity and is thankful is the same as the one who is deprived but content.”

Sae'dan ibn Yazeed said: “I told Imam Sadiq (a.s) that I saw some one having hard times in life while I had a good life. Whatever I reach out for, I find in it what I like. Sometimes I see other people who are superior to me but they do not have these blessings. I am afraid this might be a sort of divine test for me”.

Your Lord sends His greetings and says: “I have never hurt your feelings concerning anyone of your nation who loves you. I have not done anything for a believer to please him or hurt him unless it was good for him.”“ The Prophet (a.s) added: “At that time I had no property to give away in charity, and no slave to free, so I fell prostrate in worship and thanked Allah and praised Him for this.”

عن معمّر بن خلاد: قال الرضا : اتّقوا الله وعليكم بالتواضع والشكر والحمد، إنّه كان في بني إسرائيل رجلٌ فأتاه في منامه مَن قال له: إنّ لك نصف عمرك سعةً فاختر أيّ النصفين شئتَ؟ فقال: إنّ لي شريكا، فلمّا أصبح الرجل قال لزوجته: قد أتاني في هذه الليلة رجلٌ فأخبرني أنّ نصف عمري لي سعةً فاختر أيّ النصفين شئتَ، فقالت له زوجته: اختر النصف الأوّل، فقال: لكِ ذاك، فأقبلت عليه الدنيا، فكان كلّما كانت نعمةً قالت زوجته: جارك فلانٌ محتاجٌ فصِله، وتقول: قرابتك فلانٌ فتعطيه. وكانوا كذلك كلّما جاءتهم نعمةٌ أعطوا وتصدّقوا وشكروا، فلّما كان ليلةً من الليالي أتاه رجلٌ فقال: يا هذا، إنّ النصف قد انقضى فما رأيك؟ قال لي شريكٌ، فلّما أصبح الصبح قال لزوجته: أتاني الرجل فأعلمني أنّ النصف قد انقضى، فقالت له زوجته: قد أنعم الله علينا فشكرنا والله أولى بالوفاء، قال: فإنّ لك تمام عمرك.

Mu'amir ibn Khal'lad narrate “Fear Allah, and be humble; grateful and give thanks to Him. There was a man among the Israelite tribe who had a dream one night. In his dream a man told him that he would only live half of his life in comfort, and asked him which half he preferred. He told the man that he had a partner. When he woke up the next morning, he told his wife about his dream. She told him to choose the first half, and he accepted. Then they got wealthy receiving constant blessings. His wife kept informing him about needy neighbors and relatives, and he would help them. They continued donating whatever they received, and giving thanks to Allah. One night the man had another dream and saw the same man. He told him that half of his life was now over, and asked his opinion. Again he told the man that he had a partner. When he woke up the next morning he told everything he saw in his dream to his wife. She said: “Allah gave us blessings, and we gave thanks, and Allah is most faithful.” Then that man appeared in his dream again and said: “Now you will live in comfort all your life.”

Allah the Almighty told Moses the son of Imran: “O' Moses! Give thanks that are due to being thankful to Me.' Moses asked “How can I give thanks that are due to being thankful to You when the blessings are yours, and being thankful for them is another blessing from You, too.” Allah the Almighty said: “Just realizing that being thankful for My blessings is in itself a blessing, is the right of being thankful to Me.”

عن أبي عبد الله قال: أيمّا عبدٍ أنعم الله عليه بنعمةٍ فعرفها بقلبه وحمد الله عليها بلسانه لم ينفذ كلامه حتّى يأمر الله له بالزيادة، وذلك قول الله (لَئِنْ شَكَرْتُمْ لأَزِيدَنَّكُمْ.)

[The Holy Quran: Ibrahim 148:7] “Whoever is granted blessings by Allah and feels this by his heart and gives thanks for it, then Allah will order an increase in his blessings before he finishes his words. This is what is meant by Allah the Almighty's statement: “If ye are grateful, I will add more (favors) unto you.”

ومن كتاب روضة الواعظين: قال الصادق مرّ رسول الله بقومٍ يرفعون حجرا فقال: ما هذا؟ قالوا: نعرف بذلك أشدّنا وأقوانا، فقال : ألا أخبركم بأشدّكم وأقواكم؟ قالوا: بلى يا رسول الله، قال: أشدّكم وأقواكم الّذي إذا رضي لم يُدخله رضاه في إثمٍ ولا باطلٍ، وإذا سخط لم يُخرجه سخطه من قول الحقّ، وإذا قدر لم يتعاط ما ليس بحقّ.

In Rauzat al-Vaezeen it is narrated once when the Prophet (a.s) was passing by a group of people who were trying to lift a rock he asked them why they were doing so? They said that they were trying to find out who was the strongest. The Prophet (a.s) told them that he could tell them whom the strongest man was if they wished him to do so. When they said they wished to hear what the Prophet (a.s) had to say, he said the one who is the strongest is the one who does not engage in sin or do wrong deeds whenever he is satisfied; one who does not utter but what is right when he is angry; and one who does not do what is unjust when he is powerful.
