Increasing Blessings

ان النعمة موصولة بالشكر و الشكر يتعلق بالمذيد و هما مقرونان فيقرن فلن ينقطع المزيد من الله حتى ينقطع الشكر من العبد

Indeed blessings are attained through gratitude and gratitude is related to increase and these two are linked so that increase from Allah does not diminish until gratitude from the servant diminishes.

—Ali [d.40AH/661CE]
