#Blessed is a social media hashtag, sometimes used earnestly to express gratitude for good fortune in everyday life, but often used ironically by people who find hashtagging one’s blessings to be a form of "humble-bragging."

The small text comes from the Quran – "Proclaim the blessing Allah has bestowed upon you."
