Quran About Why Do You Need to Say Something After Farting in Islam
Some Quranic verses about why do you need to say something (thankfulness) after farting are as follows:
فَاذْكُرُوْنِيْٓ اَذْكُرْكُمْ وَاشْكُرُوْا لِيْ وَلَا تَكْفُرُوْنِ
So, remember Me; I will remember you. And be grateful to Me and do not deny Me. (Al-Baqarah ; 152).
بَلِ اللّٰهَ فَاعْبُدْ وَكُنْ مِّنَ الشّٰكِرِيْنَ
Rather, worship [only] Allah and be among the grateful. (Az-Zumar ; 66).
وَاِذْ تَاَذَّنَ رَبُّكُمْ لَىِٕنْ شَكَرْتُمْ لَاَزِيْدَنَّكُمْ وَلَىِٕنْ كَفَرْتُمْ اِنَّ عَذَابِيْ لَشَدِيْدٌ
And [remember] when your Lord proclaimed, “If you are grateful, I will surely increase you [in favor]; but if you deny, indeed, My punishment is severe.” (Ibrahim ; 7).
نِّعْمَةً مِّنْ عِنْدِنَاۗ كَذٰلِكَ نَجْزِيْ مَنْ شَكَرَ
As favor from us. Thus, do We reward he who is grateful. (Al-Qamar ; 35).
Hadith About Why Do You Need to Say Something After Farting in Islam
Some hadiths about why do you need to say something (thank you) after farting are as follows:
عَجَبًا لِأَمْرِ الْمُؤْمِنِ إِنَّ أَمْرَهُ كُلَّهُ خَيْرٌ ، وَلَيْسَ ذَاكَ لِأَحَدٍ إِلَّا لِلْمُؤْمِنِ ؛ إِنْ أَصَابَتْهُ سَرَّاءُ شَكَرَ فَكَانَ خَيْرًا لَهُ، وَإِنْ أَصَابَتْهُ ضَرَّاءُ صَبَرَ فَكَانَ خَيْرًا لَهُ
A believer is really amazing, because every thing is good. But that will not happen except for a true believer. If he finds pleasure, he is grateful, and that is good for him. If he is in trouble, he is patient, and that is good for him.
عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ رَضِىَ اللهُ عَنْهُمَا قَالَ : قَالَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : نِعْمَتَانِ مَغْبُوْنٌ فِيْهِمَا كَثِيْرٌ مِنَ النَّاسِ ، الصِّحَّةُ وَالْفَرَاغُ
From Ibn Abbas, he said that the Prophet (Muhammad) sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said: “Two pleasures, many people are deceived by them, namely health and free time (not busy).”
عَنْ جَابِرٍ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : قَالَ : مَنْ أُعْطِيَ عَطَاءً فَوَجَدَ فَلْيَجْزِ بِهِ وَمَنْ لَمْ يَجِدْ فَلْيُثْنِ فَإِنَّ مَنْ أَثْنَى فَقَدْ شَكَرَ وَمَنْ كَتَمَ فَقَدْ كَفَرَ وَمَنْ تَحَلَّى بِمَا لَمْ يُعْطَهُ كَانَ كَلاَبِسِ ثَوْبَىْ زُورٍ
From Jabir, that the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said: “Whoever is given a gift, then if he finds something let him reciprocate. If he has nothing, then let him mention some praise. For whoever has mentioned some praise, then he has expressed his gratitude. And whoever refrains (from doing so) then he has committed Kufr. And whoever pretends to be satisfied by that which he was not given, he is like the one who wears a garment of falsehood.”
عَنْ عِمْرَانَ بْنِ حُصَيْنٍ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ : إِنَّ اللهُ يُحِبُّ إِذَا أَنْعَمَ عَلَى عَبْدِهْ نِعْمَةً أَنْ يَرَى أَثَرَ نِعْمَتِهِ عَلَيْهِ . رَوَاهُ الْبَيْهَقِيُّ
From Imran bin Hashin radliyallahu anhu, that the Prophet (Muhammad) sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, “Verily Allah is pleased to see the effect of the favor that He has given to His servants.” The hadith was narrated by al-Baihaqi.
That’s a brief explanation of “why do you need to say something after farting in Islam?”. As Muslims, we must understand that.
