Mentions From The Quran & Hadith

From the root k-r-m which has the following classical Arabic connotations: to be noble, grand, high minded. To be generous, giving, beneficent to be highly esteemed, honored, prized, valued to be excellent, precious, valuable, rare. To be productive, fruitful.

This is from the favor of my Lord to test me whether I will be grateful or ungrateful. And whoever is grateful – his gratitude is only for [the benefit of] himself. And whoever is ungrateful – then indeed, my Lord is Free of need and Generous.” (Quran 27:40)

O mankind, what has deceived you concerning your Lord, the Generous. (Quran 82:6)

Allah has written down the good deeds and the bad ones. Then He explained it [by saying that] he who has intended a good deed and has not done it, Allah writes it down with Himself as a full good deed, but if he has intended it and has done it, Allah writes it down with Himself as from ten good deeds to seven hundred times, or many times over. But if he has intended a bad deed and has not done it, Allah writes it down with Himself as a full good deed, but if he has intended it and has done it, Allah writes it down as one bad deed. It was related by al-Bukhari and Muslim. (Hadith Qudsi #16)
