Prophet Sulaiman on being grateful to Allah – Surah Naml Verse 40 Quran

Brief Verse Interpretation / Tafsir

In this verse, Allah reminds us of the special powers that Allah bestowed upon Prophet Solomon (Sulaiman). By witnessing those powers, prophet Sulaiman thanked Allah for His blessings on him and said that Allah brought favors upon him to test him. He also said that people who are thankful and grateful, they benefit themselves by having such an attitude. And those who are ungrateful, they don’t hurt Allah one bit.
