Shaykh As-Sa’dee, rahimaullah, said in his book “Explanation to the Beautiful and Perfect Names of Allah”:
Ash-Shaakir (The Recogniser and Rewarder of good), Ash-Shakoor (The Appreciative)
The One Who recognises and rewards the small quantity of action, Who forgives the large quantity of sins. He is the One Who multiplies the rewards of His sincere servants manifold without any measure. He is the One Who recognises and rewards those who give thanks to Him and remembers the one who remembers Him. Whosoever seeks to get close to Him by doing any righteous action, Allaah draws close to Him by a greater degree.
“Indeed Safa and Marwa are two of the symbols of Allaah. So it is not a sin on him who performs Hajj or Umrah to perform the going between them. And whoever does good voluntarily, then Allaah is Ash-Shaakir, the All-Knowing.” (2:158)
“Indeed those who recite the Book of Allaah, and establish the prayers and spend out of that which we have provided them, secretly and openly, hope for a sure trade-gain that will never perish. That He may pay them in full and give them even more out of His Grace. He is the Oft-Forgiving, Ash-Shakoor.” (35:29-30)
