Surah Tawbah: (continued)
- If we are asked to go for a noble cause, check before making an excuse to stay behind. Is the excuse to stay behind acceptable to Allah (swt)? Is it an honest and genuine excuse?
- Ignorance can lead to hypocrisy
- Sadaqah is a way to be closer to Allah (swt). Expecting return from Allah (swt), will draw you closer to Allah (swt).
- Stay in state of Wudu. Those who sleep in wudu, an angel is with them through out the night. And if they happen to wake up in the middle of the night, the Angel asks Allah (swt) to forgive this person, because he/she is in the state of wudu.
- Prophet Muhammad (saw) was asked: who is the best among all men? Who is the best? Which person is the best? Prophet Muhammad (saw) answered: the person who struggles in the way of Allah (swt). The one who struggles in the way of the Allah (swt). The one who gives his wealth, struggling in the way of Allah (swt). The who is dedicated to Allah (swt), living for the cause of Allah (swt).
- Allah (swt) has purchased from believers their lives, properties etc. And in exchange for that they will have Paradise.
- Life and wealth are very precious people, and if these precious things are spent in the way of Allah (swt), Allah (swt) promises them Jannah. For those who did Hijrah.
- Prophet Muhammad (saw) said: The muhajirun will come to the gates of Jannah early. Before the accounting has been done. They are the one who gave their lives in the way and cause of Allah (swt). They will be allowed to enter the gates, and allowed to sleep and rest for 40 years.
- Salat is not supposed to be a burden, it is actually a means of getting rid of our burdens.
- Prophet Muhammad (saw) said the person who goes to the masjid with the intention of learning something good or teaching it, will have the reward of Hajj.
- Everything is this world is temporary, imperfect and will come to an end.
- Unfortunately, majority of the people don’t live this life to secure a place in the HereAfter, the Akhirah.
- This world is like a prison for the believer, because he/she restricts him/her self here to get a place in the Akirah, in the HereAfter.
- Difficulties humble us. Bring us closer to Allah (swt). They make us repent.
- Prophet Muhammad (saw) said that when Allah (swt) intends good for a person, He hastens some of kind punishment in this world for them, some difficulties in that person’s life. Making it pass quickly.
- This life is very short. Its temporary. We are all travelers here. This is not our home.
- Reciting the Quran is a means of cure. It’s a cure for all and everything. It makes the person reflect. It is a mean of obtaining Allah (swt)’s mercy.
- Always remember: Allah (swt) is watching you.
- Iman is a blessing
- Any hardship, turn and trust Allah (swt)
- When you have the chance to work on a project to spread the message of Islam. Be eager to help out. Don’t be like the hypocrites of Madinah, backing out and making lousy excuses.
- Race to good deeds, don’t be lazy.
- Punishment in the HereAfter is even worse
- Dua: HabiyAllahi La ilaaha illaa huwa ‘Alayhi tawakkaltu wa huwa Rabbul ‘Arshil ‘Adheem. (seven times in the morning and the evening. everyday. And Allah (swt) shall grant you whatever you desire from this world and the next. InshaAllah)
- We cannot just live heedlessly. Ask Allah (swt) to give you awareness of your role here on earth.
- Don’t get too comfortable here, its temporary.
