Hadith on Praise: Thanking Allah for blessings better than receiving

Anas ibn Malik reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Allah does not bestow His bounties upon a servant and he says, ‘All praise is due to Allah,’ but that what he has given for praise is better than what he has taken of bounties.”
