Readings from the
Interfaith Thanksgiving Celebration
2. It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto Thy name,
Surah Al-Ankabut 29:17
You worship only [lifeless] idols instead of God, and [thus] you give visible shape to a lie! 13 Behold, those [things and beings] that you worship instead of God have it not in their power to provide sustenance for you: seek, then, all [your] sustenance from God, and worship Him [alone] and be grateful to Him: [for] unto Him you shall be brought back!
Surah Az-Zumar, 39:7
If you are ingrate 11 – behold, God has no need of you; none the less, He does not approve of ingratitude in His servants: whereas, if you show gratitude, He approves it in you. And no bearer of burdens shall be made to bear another’s hurden. 12 In time, unto your Sustainer you all must return, and then He will make you [truly] understand all that you were doing [in life]: for, verily, He has full knowledge of what is in the hearts [of men].
Surah An-Naml 27:19
Thereupon [Solomon] smiled joyously at her words, and said: “O my Sustainer! Inspire me so that I may forever be grateful for those blessings of Thine with which Thou hast graced me and my parentS, 17 and that I may do what is right [in a manner] that will please Thee; and include me, by Thy grace, among Thy righteous servants!”
1 Thessalonians 5:13-24
13 … Live in peace with each other. 14 And we urge you, brothers, warn those who are idle, encourage the timid, help the weak, be patient with everyone. 15 Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always try to be kind to each other and to everyone else. 16 Be joyful always; 17 pray continually; 18 give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 19 Do not put out the Spirit’s fire; 20 do not treat prophecies with contempt. 21 Test everything. Hold on to the good. 22 Avoid every kind of evil.
