Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever. (1 Chronicles 16:34)

Now, our God, we give You thanks, and praise Your glorious name. (1 Chronicles 29:13)

I will give thanks to You, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all Your wonderful deeds. (Psalm 9:1)

I will praise God’s name in song and glorify Him with thanksgiving. (Psalm 69:30)

Let us come before Him with thanksgiving and extol Him with music and song. (Psalm 95:2)

Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke them. Then he gave them to the disciples to distribute to the people. (Luke 9:16)

For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving. (1 Timothy 4:4)

Know that the Lord is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving

Quran

[3:123] …. you shall observe GOD, to show your appreciation.

[14:7] Your Lord has decreed: "The more you thank Me, the more I give you." But if you turn unappreciative, then My retribution is severe.

[31:12] We have endowed Luqmãn with wisdom: "You shall be appreciative of GOD." Whoever is appreciative is appreciative for his own good. As for those who turn unappreciative, GOD is in no need, Praiseworthy.

[39:66] Therefore, you shall worship GOD alone, and be appreciative.

[46:15] … "My Lord, direct me to appreciate the blessings You have bestowed upon me and upon my parents, and to do the righteous works that please You. ..."

[2:198] … You shall commemorate Him for guiding you; before this, you had gone astray.

[76:3] We showed him the two paths, then, he is either appreciative, or unappreciative.

[16:10-14] He sends down from the sky water for your drink, and to grow trees for your benefit.  With it, He grows for you crops, olives, date palms, grapes, and all kinds of fruits.

This is (sufficient) proof for people who think.  And He commits, in your service, the night and the day, as well as the sun and the moon. Also, the stars are committed by His command. These are (sufficient) proofs for people who understand. And (He created) for you on earth things of various colors. This is a (sufficient) proof for people who take heed. And He committed the sea to serve you; you eat from it tender meat, and extract jewelry which you wear. And you see the ships roaming it for your commercial benefits, as you seek His bounties, that you may be appreciative.

[16:18] If you count GOD's blessings, you cannot possibly encompass them. GOD is Forgiver, Most Merciful.

[16:78] GOD brought you out of your mothers' bellies knowing nothing, and He gave you the hearing, the eyesight, and the brains, that you may be appreciative.

As we enjoy Thanksgiving feasts, or our daily meals, let us remember to be thankful to God.

[16:114] Therefore, you shall eat from GOD's provisions everything that is lawful and good, and be appreciative of GOD's blessings, if you do worship Him alone.

[69:24] Eat and drink happily in return for your works in days past.

With God's help, we remember to eat and drink moderately (7:31) and not to waste anything (6:141).
