Happy Thanksgiving

American tradition of thanksgiving is here!
wish you all a very happy thanksgiving!

may you all have a wonderful and blessed time with your family, loved and near ones.

He is your field which you sow with love,
and reap with thanksgiving. - Khalil Gibran

The Holy Prophet Muhammad is reported to have said: "'Praise be to God (alhamdu lillah)' is the beginning of thanksgiving, for the man who does not praise God has not thanked Him". Alhamdu lillah is same in meaning and spirit as Hallelujah or Alleluia, which is: Praise ye Jehova or Praise be to God.

If the only prayer you say in your whole life is "thank you", that would suffice. - Meister Eckhart, the 14th-century mystic.

on this occasion of thanksgiving may we all remember to give thanks to the One Who deserves thanks the best. may we offer thanks from our inner heart to the Sustainer of all that is, Who is the Source of Nourishment for all. "Thank You for everything that you have given to us and thank You for everything that You kept away from us. indeed all are source of unending blessings from You."
