The Manners of Thanks Giving

We have mentioned before that the reward of good is good and that the repaying of beauty is beauty or what is better than that, therefore, it is not good for me to repay good with showing no concern or even evil. Thus, thanksgiving has its own manners, among them are:

A- Do not be slow in thanking those who did good to you.

B- While thanking the one who did good to you, you should hope to repay the service(s) rendered to you in the future. This is a practical thanks giving which deepens friendly relations and encourages towards doing more good.

C- Thanks giving is not only meant for a particular group of people, rather it is meant for every doer of good, no matter what the rate of good he did. As it is meant for father, mother, brother, sister, friend, teacher and director, it is also meant for postmaster, metropolitan worker, waiter, door keeper, shoe shiner and others.
