Kindly mention the full Hadith you have answered regarding ‘Unity is a mercy and division is a punishment‘ and ‘Showing gratitude for little things

 

Answer

The full Hadith is as follows:

Sayyiduna Nu’man ibn Bashir (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reported, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said upon the mimbar: “Whoever is not grateful for small things will not be grateful for large things. Whoever is not grateful to people is not thankful to Allah. Mentioning the blessing of Allah is gratitude and not doing so is ingratitude. Unity is a mercy and division [of hearts] is a punishment”

(Musnad Ahmad; Zawaid ‘Abdullah ibn Imam Ahmad, vol. 4 pg. 278 and vol. 4 pg. 375)
