Cultivate Qana’ah in the self, say Imams

Azlan Othman

Islam urges Muslims to emulate Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) by being generous, living modestly, and cultivating a sense of gratitude (qana’ah) for all the blessings from Allah the Almighty.

Imams in yesterday’s sermon called on Muslims to practice qana’ah in their daily lives.

Characteristics of qana’ah are exemplified by always showing gratitude to Allah the Almighty, being generous and committing to righteous causes and living moderately.

Additionally, one must constantly seek ways to overcome difficulties through effort and faith rather than being hopeless and giving up.

“There are many benefits of qana’ah, such as deepening our faith, obtaining serenity in this world and in the hereafter, protecting us from committing sinful acts, avoiding jealousy, envy and greed, feeling a sense of ease, and acquiring spiritual wealth,” Imams said.

Imams urged Muslims to reflect on themselves and feel grateful to instil qana’ah characteristics.

“Let us pray for Allah the Almighty to guide us in this world and in the days of hereafter, as well as to protect us and shower us with happiness,” they said.
