A good life – Hayaatan tayyibah

Allah the Most high, says,

“Whoever works righteousness, man or woman, and has Faith, verily, to him will We give a new Life, a life that is good and pure and We will bestow on such their reward according to the best of their actions.”

[Al Qur’an 16:97]

The believers have a very good life, don’t be fooled by what you see. For sometimes what you see is not what you get. Sometimes you can see a wealthy disbeliever who has the world in his hands, but you can’t see what is going on in the inside, and he doesn’t know what the believers are feeling because he has never felt it. He feels happy with what he has and doesn’t know that there is something much better than that.

Ibn Taymiyah (May Allah have mercy on him) said “If the kings knew the happiness and pleasure that we feel in our hearts, they would come and try to take it away from us with the tips of their swords.”

But whosoever turns away from My Message, verily for him is a very distressful life.” [Al Qur’an 20:124]

Be assured anyone not on the true path is having a life of misery even if you think otherwise. Whilst the believers who are apparently going through suffering, Allah is giving them a feeling in their heart that could not be bought with the wealth of this Dunya.

Because of the difficulty the believers go through and the patience they show Allah gives them something in their hearts that cannot be described with words.

Again, if you are not feeling this, then there is something wrong with the iman (faith).

No effort will be wasted

Allah the Most High says,

As to those who believe and work righteousness, verily We shall not suffer to perish the reward of any who do a (single) righteous deed.”

[Al Qur’an 18:30]

Sometimes you might feel that you are wasting your time. For instance you are giving Dawah (calling towards Islam), but nobody is listening, or you can’t see a change in the people. You should know that your reward is with Allah and none of your effort will be wasted, as success is not about numbers.

Rasullullah (saw) says that when I was taken to the heavens – “I saw a prophet with 10 followers, a prophet with 5 followers, a prophet with 2 followers, some with 1 follower and some with no followers.” However these Prophets did not fail, rather it was the people who refused to believe.

In fact Allah will pay you back with more than what you did

Fearing Allah

Fearing Allah

On the authority of Muadh ibn Jabal (may Allah be pleased with him) it is related that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said,

“Fear Allah wherever you are, and follow up a bad deed with a good one and it will wipe it out, and behave well towards people.”

[Tirmidhi]

Explanation

Fearing Allah does not mean that a person is always terrified and frightened of Allah. Rather the Fear of Allah constitutes the obedience of Allah, consciousness of Allah that Allah is present wherever we are, fulfillment of the rights of Allah and also the fulfillment of the rights of other Muslims, which would come under obedience of the commands of Allah. Moreover hope in Allah’s mercy, trusting in Allah, loving Allah and Rasullullah (saw), the religion of Allah and everything associated with it, all fall into the concept of Fearing Allah. May Allah make us all of those who truly fear Him (swt). Ameen
