So what's the answer? Why should we be thankful and why are we blessed?
You awoke up and you are alive and well this morning, right? Then you are blessed; think of countless others who didn't live to see this day....But you did, then be thankful and give God praise
So if we are blessed to wake up alive, does that mean that those who didn't wake up aren't blessed?
Why give praise to God? Where is the evidence that God had anything to do with us waking up alive?
You asked some of the most vacuous questions. If I'm not mistaken your quran mention, maybe not in the exact words, "God gave the submitters a chance to glorify and praise Him day and night and promised to reward them for remembering to do so". It also states something about not recognizing God blessing can prevent one from gaining His pleasure.
1 Samuel 2:6 " The Lord killeth, and maketh alive: he bringeth down to the grave, and bringeth up"
God, the giver of life (Genesis 2:7), has the right to end any life if and when He chooses (Job 1:21)
