Are you planning to buy online Alhamdulillah art? Thinking of decorating the walls of your homes or offices with Alhamdulillah art? Let us first understand the essence of ‘Alhamdulillah’ which in English translates into ‘All Praise is for Allah’ or ‘Praise be to Allah’. It is a zikr which a Muslim must recite everyday – for all the blessings that Allah has bestowed upon him/her – from everyday neyamats like breathing, eating and living a healthy life to special blessings like winning accolades, and earning a lot of wealth and fame.  A believer should always express gratitude to Allah for all His favours, whether they are (seemingly) ordinary or extraordinary, tangible or intangible. Without Allah’s Mercy and Grace, we would not have existed, let alone living, growing and experiencing life.

The opening chapter of the Holy Quran, Surah Al Fatiha, begins with ‘Alhamdulillah’. The first verse of the surah is ‘Alhamdulillah-ir-RabbilAalameen’ which in English translates into ‘Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds’

In Chapter 14, Verse 7 of the Holy Quran, Allah Almighty says, “And remember when your Lord proclaimed, ‘If you are grateful, I will surely increase you in favour. But if you deny indeed, my punishment is severe.’”

Suhaib reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said:“Strange are the ways of a believer for there is good in every affair of his and this is not the case with anyone else except in the case of a believer for if he has an occasion to feel delight, he thanks Allah, thus there is a good for him in it, and if he gets into trouble and shows resignation (endures into patiently), there is good for him in it.” [Sahih Muslim]

It is important to know that Allah is in no need of gratitude from his slaves. Nor does He need any of our acts of worship. Instead, it is we who need to expressour gratitude to Allah because it benefits us. Frequent praising of Allah helps us feel positive and humble. In times of joy or success, it makes us feel humble. In times of hardship or sadness, it makes us feel positive and hopeful. In whatever condition we may – happy, sad, or neutral, we should still make it a habit to say ‘Alhamdulillah’ since, without us even realising it, we are in a constant state of blessing. For example, after we breath, we see, we eat, we sleep, we wake up in the morning – these are all blessings of Allah. These are so-called “routine”aspects of life, but just think, would can we live without breathing or eating?

Eating a fruit? Say ‘Alhamdulillah’. Finished your project? Say ‘Alhamdulillah’. Just got married? Say ‘Alhamdulillah’.  Sneezed? Always, always say ‘Alhamdulillah’.

As a frequent spiritual reminder, you can decorate the walls of your homes or offices with Alhamdulillah art. You can buy online Alhamdulillah art on different ecommerce platforms  such as Amazon, Etsy, Ebay and even specialist, boutique Islamic calligraphy art for home décor stores.
