The Exalted and Glorious One proclaims:
Those servants to whom I grant health and ease of life and who enjoy these for five whole years without once turning to Me in thankfulness are those who have rejected Me.
(Hadith 94 was collected by the sage Abu Bakr ibn Abi Shayba, and comes from the transmission of the noble companion Abu Sai'd al-Khudri, may Allah be pleased with him. It is also recorded in ibn Arabi's Mishkat al-Anwar)
