Enormities: Ingratitude To Someone Who Does One A Kindness

This is another article in the chapter Enormities from the classical manual on Sharia called Reliance of the Traveller. The articles are posted one by one in the order they are given in the book.

p68.0 INGRATITUDE TO SOMEONE WHO DOES ONE A KINDNESS
p68.1 Allah Most High says:
“… to show thanks to Me, and to your parents … ” (Koran 31:14).
p68.2 The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said,
“He who does not thank people is unthankful to Allah.”
p68.3 One of the early Muslims said: “Ingratitude for a kindness is one of the enormities.
Gratitude consists of reciprocating it or supplicating for the person.”
