Manifestation is Gratitude.

قال بعض السلف

مَن كتم النعمة : فقد كفَرها ، ومن أظهرها ونشرها : فقد شكرها

قال ابن القيم – تعليقاً على هذا – :
وهذا مأخوذ من قوله

إن الله إذا أنعم على عبد بنعمة : أحب أن يَرى أثر نعمته على عبده 

مدارج السالكين ”  2 / 246 

Some of the salaf said:

Whoever conceals a blessing has denied it, but whoever manifests it and spreads it has given thanks for it. 

Ibn al-Qayyim said, commenting on that: This is based on the words:

“When Allah bestows a blessing upon a person, He loves the effect of His blessing to be seen on His slave.”

Madarij al-Salikeen (2/246).

  1. Despite highlighting the source of the above excerpt it fails to show up in the post. Thus for the those interested the above text is from ibn al Qayyim’s ‘Madarij al Salikeen’.
