Shahroz Sabzwari and his wife Sadaf Kanwal recently made an appearance on a talk show where they talked about numerous things including a pressing topic that’s on everyone’s mind whether they’d like it or not – inflation. And Shahroz’s views on the matter have left a lot of viewers and netizens kind of upset.
According to Shahroz, one should be grateful for everything they have regardless of there being inflation and if one adopts this mentality, inflation won’t feel as hard-hitting as it does. “If inflation is on the rise, if we’re just grateful for everything that we have, then inflation won’t feel like inflation. You might also think I’m just saying that because I’m this big celebrity and don’t know the impact of inflation. But you have the power to be grateful under any circumstances,” he shared.
He also shared how he and his wife make sure they’re grateful for everything they have and realise that it’s all God-given. “Like for example, one thing is very clear in my house that my wife and I, whatever we get is because of the mercy of God and the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) so whatever we get we’re grateful for that. Whether there’s inflation or not,” he added.

After the clip started making rounds on Twitter, Shahroz’s opinion is being considered tone-deaf and exuding lack of empathy, as inflation has made it extremely hard for people to make ends meet. Check out some of the reactions below.
at this point, i’m begging Shahroz Sabzwari to give ONE sane statement. https://t.co/RnmvuFM8X1

Tell this to the person whose life is hanging by a thread finding it hard to make ends meet and feed his children. The Elite in this country is so oblivious of the lives of ordinary people and their audacity to gaslight the poor. Moron! https://t.co/SgqK8qPzVS

I made my deaf cousin listen to this, but to my surprise, she stood up and went into sajda, expressing gratitude to God for her deafness.” https://t.co/XxnyuW1aSe

Send this Sabzwari family to Lalu Khait. Make them stay there for a month without electricity and water and give em only 20k to run their home. Sab Allah ka shukar 10 din mein nikal jaye ga. Jahil Log. https://t.co/iUWtIO8SUp

Shukar does increase your blessings as per Quran. One of the ways to show to gratitude to God is to share the gifts he has given you with others. I hope rich people like Sheroz do share their blessings with those who are hit badly by inflation. https://t.co/wilkpOzk5f

A bunch of people also agreed with his opinion and believed that God bestows His blessings on all those who are grateful.
Im not sure why people are critical of what he has said coz Allah has clearly said be grateful & i will give you more & i will give you the patience to accept what you do have, how little it is https://t.co/LG6T6wxDDJ

A very unpopular opinion, people who Thank Allah in any situation, either good or bad, are so content with whatever they are given in this Dunia. Banda ye nihayat he farig hai per iss baat ka mazak urana banta nae, even Allah says, “If you will be grateful, I will give you more”. https://t.co/HxPLO2vN6H
