Principally because He has, thus, guided us to meaning and purpose in life and brought us on the Straight Path. The way to honour and dignity in this-world has been opened for us. In the Qur'an, we can converse with Allah. Only by following the Qur'an in this-world can we attain forgiveness, Paradise and Allah's good pleasure in that-world.

Gratitude and joy lead to trust, hope and greater gifts. The One who has given us the Qur'an will surely help us in reading, understanding and following it. Thankfulness and joy generate an ever-fresh vigour which helps us to read the Qur'an always with a renewed zeal. The more we are grateful, the more Allah gives us of the riches that the Qur'an has to offer. Generosity evokes gratitude, gratitude makes one deserve more generosity an unending cycle. Such is Allah's promise: 'If you are grateful, I will surely give you more and more' (Ibrahim 14: 7).

Having the Qur'an and not feeling immensely grateful for it can only mean two things: either we are ignorant of the blessings that the Qur'an contains, or we do not attach any importance to them. In either case one should be seriously worried about the state of one's relationship with the Qur'an. The sentiment of gratitude that permeates every pore of the heart and mind, must also pour out in our words, which should be profuse and incessant.

Thank Allah at every step of your journey: for having had time for the Qur'an, for reading it correctly, for memorizing it, for every meaning you discover in it, for having been enabled to follow it.

Gratitude must also be transformed into deeds.

The CEO was scheduled to speak at an important convention, so he asked one of his employees, Jenkins, to write him a punchy 20-minute speech. When the CEO returned from the big event, he was furious. "What's the idea of writing me an hour-long speech?" he demanded. "Half the audience walked out before I finished."

Jenkins was baffled. "I wrote you a 20-minute speech," he replied. "I also gave you the two extra copies you asked for."
