Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

The main cause of one falling into the sin of ingratitude and being ungrateful to Allah Ta‘ala for His favours is that one forgets about all the favours Allah Ta‘ala is blessing him with and only thinks and grieves over what he does not have.

In other words, ingratitude is created in a person’s heart when he fails to look at the many favours of Allah Ta‘ala that he is enjoying, and instead only focuses on that which he does not possess. Conversely, if a person constantly keeps in mind the abundant favours and bounties of Allah Ta‘ala  that he enjoys, and is not concerned about that which he does not have, then naturally the feeling of gratitude will be created within his heart.

Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned the following:

One easy remedy to remove the malady of self-admiration is that when one experiences feelings and thoughts of self-admiration, then one should immediately think of his sins. On thinking of his sins, he should express gratitude to Allah Ta‘ala for concealing his sins from the people. He should think to himself that had Allah Ta‘ala not kept his sins concealed from the people, then the reality of the matter is that on account of the abundant sins and weaknesses which he has, the people who are showing him respect will not even wish to spit on him (let alone associate with him).

Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned the following:

In the Quraan Majeed, the example of those who spend in the path of Allah Ta‘ala is compared with the example of a person who sows a single seed from which seven hundred grains are harvested. Allah Ta‘ala mentions:

مَثَلُ الَّذِیۡنَ یُنۡفِقُوۡنَ اَمۡوَالَهمۡ فِیۡ سَبِیۡلِ اللّٰه کَمَثَلِ حَبَّةٍ اَنۡۢبَتَتۡ سَبۡعَ سَنَابِلَ فِیۡ کُلِّ سُنۡۢبُلَةٍ مِّائَةُ حَبَّةٍ ؕ وَاللّٰهُ یُضٰعِفُ لِمَنۡ یَّشَآءُ ؕ وَ اللّٰهُ وَاسِعٌ عَلِیۡمٌ

The example of those who spend their wealth in the path of Allah is like a seed (of grain which is sowed into the ground) which grows seven ears; in each ear is one hundred grains. And Allah multiplies (His reward) for whomsoever He wills. And Allah is all-Encompassing and all-Knowing. (Surah Baqarah v. 261)

Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

Ilaahi Bakhsh was an influential prominent person from Meerut who was blessed with wisdom. He once made a very beneficial statement. He said, “In order to alleviate financial difficulty, people make an effort to increase their income, whereas this is not generally within a person’s control. However, they do not consider or make an effort to decrease their expenditure – especially unessential expenditure which can be greatly decreased, whereas this is something within the control of every person.”

Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned the following:

It is extremely important for a person to regard himself unworthy at all times for the favours Allah Ta‘ala blesses him with. At no time should one feel within his heart that he is eligible for the favours of Allah Ta‘ala (on account of the good that he is doing). Nevertheless, together with having the conviction of not being worthy of any good, it is necessary for one to continue expressing gratitude to Allah Ta‘ala for His favours so that one does not fall into the sin of being ungrateful.
