Performing Salah, understanding ‘La illaha Illallah’, protecting our Iman, while enriching our way of living by following Sunnah, can lead us towards the road that leads to Paradise.
We should keep our eyes and ears open for signs of depression or anxiety in our circle of family and friends. We know that some people might be going through horrible situations in their life and are scared to share with others for their safety. Being of help to those in need will heal this world of the sorrows and darkness, turning it into a place of peace and harmony. Playing our role as a sensible fellow citizen might help in bringing positive impact to our communities.
In Muslims, we witness that people belonging to a certain sect would consider in their hearts that the other person, of a different sect is not going to please Allah with any of his/her deeds. At extremes, even considering someone a non-believer, God forbid. We are all Muslims, and in no way can we put a stamp of a believer / non-believer as a result of the sect one belongs to.
Rising above our weaknesses, aiming to achieve humility, simplicity, piety, righteousness, and sense of non-attachment with the worldly affairs, can aid us in climbing the tallest of mountains. Pleasing our supreme King with our weak attempts can help us in making this earth a blessing for all. Let us strive to feel the pain of our near and dear ones, being of assistance to those in need, lending a helping hand even when we ourselves are falling short, only for gaining Allah’s pleasure.
Modesty is a quality every Muslim should possess, our behavior with family, relatives, friends should be enveloped in a seal of haya, signaling to others that indeed indecency isn’t part of our iman. Saving our eyes, and ears from watching vulgar content, which is available so easily today, is a tough call that we need to take immediately. At a time so critical, our kids need guidance in how to act responsibly in behavior, appearance and thinking.
No one is advised by Allah to just sit down and wait for fate to take its course. Allah says to us to have faith in His choices for us, to make effort and after a reasonable effort, lie down and reap what we have sown. In this life, there would be trials, blocking our vision, our faith, making us think how we would survive and from where sustenance would reach, assuming that we are ‘done’. But, behold oh forgetful creation of Almighty Allah, He says to us to have faith in Him, trust Him, and He will open doors for us which weren’t even there in the first place.
