31 Positive Outcomes of Coronavirus

This is a gratitude list that might help those feeling anxious and worry in troubling times of this global pandemic. The gratitude list is to count our blessings during this period.

What does God say about gratitude?

When we count our blessings, we are able to realize how abundant they. This helps us to be grateful to Allah s.w.t, and that Allah s.w.t. has promised to increase His blessings upon those who are grateful to Him.

And ˹remember˺ when your Lord proclaimed, ‘If you are grateful, I will certainly give you more. But if you are ungrateful, surely My punishment is severe.’ (Quran, surah Ibrahim, 14:7)
