‘Alhamdulillah’ is an expression that pervades a Muslim’s life. Arabic for “All Praise is for Allah’ or ‘Praise be to Allah’, ‘Alhamdulillah’ must be said, indeed felt, for all the blessings in life – be it breathing, sleeping, eating, walking, education, talent, opportunity, big achievements and or accumulation of wealth. For every blessing, basic and special, regular and rare, visible and intangible, big and small, the faithful must always feel and express gratitude to Allah for His Mercy and Grace. Because were it not for Allah’s Mercy or Grace, we would not have even existed, forget living and growing. It is therefore no wonder that many Muslim homes have Alhamdulillah wall art in their homes, where ‘Alhamdulillah’ is written in a calligraphic font. People look for ‘best Alhamudillah art’ online in order to display in their homes or gift their loved ones this important spiritual reminder.
The opening chapter of the Holy Quran, Surah Al Fatiha, starts with ‘Alhamdulillah’. The first ayat of the surah is ‘Alhamdulillah-ir-Rabbil Aalameen’ which in English means ‘Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds’
In Surah Ibrahim, Verse 7 of the Holy Quran, it is written: “And remember when your Lord proclaimed, “If you are grateful, I will surely increase you in favour. But if you deny indeed, my punishment is severe.”
Suhaib reported that the Prophet (SAW) said: “Strange are the ways of a believer for there is good in every affair of his and this is not the case with anyone else except in the case of a believer for if he has an occasion to feel delight, he thanks Allah, thus there is a good for him in it, and if he gets into trouble and shows resignation (endures into patiently), there is good for him in it.” [Sahih Muslim]
It’s important to understand that Allah does not need gratitude from us. Or for that matter, any of our acts of worship. Expressing our gratitude to Allah is good for us only. Frequent utterance of ‘Alhamdulillah’ helps us stay positive and humble. It infuses in us humility in times of happiness, and positivity in times of distress. When we are in a neutral state, we should still be habituated to say ‘Alhamdulillah’. That’s because many of the blessings are taken for granted by us. For instance, when we wake up in the morning or finish a meal, we should say ‘Alhamdulillah’. Even though these are everyday, routine tasks, we actually cannot do without them.
You’ve got a simple warm meal on your dining table? Say ‘Alhamdulillah’. Spoke to you mon on the phone? Say ‘Alhamdulillah’. Got a good salary hike? Say ‘Alhamdulillah’. Had a good night’s sleep? Say ‘Alhamdulillah’. Have a roof over your head and water in your fridge? Always, always, say and feel ‘Alhamdulillah’.
We suggest to even display in your homes Alhmadulillah wall art.
