Thank the Channel too....
Why is the word “Thank you” so difficult to utter? Some can spit it out, but can they say what it is supposed to mean: “I am grateful to you.” Some think that it is a formality not necessary to use in the immediate family, with one’s spouse, children, siblings, parents, etc; while, in fact, these are the relationships that require acknowledgement the most! If someone gets you a glass of water, or irons your clothes for you, or drives you somewhere, or cooks for you, or helps you with your homework… they deserve your gratitude!
If they did it for Allah’s pleasure, He will surely reward them; but that does not mean that the recipient of the favor should not express his/her gratitude. This is something that Rasul Allah (Sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) promotes in this hadith, that we thank Allah (Subhana wa ta’ala) and the channel through which He chose to do us the favor.
