Believe and do good deeds only to Please Allaah and even the creation will love you

Indeed, those who have believed and done righteous deeds – the Most Merciful will appoint for them affection.

[Qur’aan 19:96]


Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah's Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) said, "If Allah loves a person, He calls Gabriel, saying, 'Allah loves so and so, O Gabriel love him' So Gabriel would love him and then would make an announcement in the Heavens: 'Allah has loved so and-so therefore you should love him also.' So all the dwellers of the Heavens would love him, and then he is granted the pleasure of the people on the earth."

[Sahih al-Bukhaari Hadiith No. 7485]

Do not do deeds for anyone but Allaah

And most of them believe not in Allah except while they associate others with Him.

[Qur’aan 12: 106]


Abu Hurairah (may Allaah be pleased with him) said:

The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) said, "Almighty Allah says, 'I am the One Who is most free from want of partners. He who does a thing for the sake of someone else beside Me, I discard him and his polytheism."

[Sahih Muslim]

 

Ibn Abbaas said (regarding the above mentioned Verse): It was their Imaan that when they were asked: Who created the Heavens and Who created the Earth and Who created the mountains, they would reply: Allaah while they were polytheists.


Mujaahid said: Their Imaan was their saying that Allaah created us, feeds us, and causes us to die.

Call adopted children by their real father’s names

Call them by [the names of] their fathers; it is more just in the sight of Allah. But if you do not know their fathers – then they are [still] your brothers in religion and those entrusted to you. And there is no blame upon you for that in which you have erred but [only for] what your hearts intended. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.

[Qur’aan 33:5]

 

Narrated `Abdullah bin `Umar:

We used not to call Zaid bin Haritha the freed slave of Allah's Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) except Zaid bin Muhammad till the Qu'anic Verse was revealed: "Call them (adopted sons) by (the names of) their fathers. That is more than just in the Sight of Allah." [Qur’aan 33.5]

[Sahiih al-Bukhaari Hadiith No. 4782]

 

Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) said, "Do not deny your fathers (i.e. claim to be the sons of persons other than your fathers), and whoever denies his father, is charged with disbelief."

[Sahiih al-Bukhaari Hadiith No. 6768]

Be careful of what you utter

Not a word does he (or she) utter, but there is a watcher by him ready (to record it).

[Qur’aan 50:18]


Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) said, "A slave (of Allah) may utter a word which pleases Allah without giving it much importance, and because of that Allah will raise him to degrees (of reward): a slave (of Allah) may utter a word (carelessly) which displeases Allah without thinking of its gravity and because of that he will be thrown into the Hell-Fire."

[Sahiih al-Bukhaari Hadiith No. 6478]


Ibn al-Qayyim said:

Indeed, the slave (of Allaah) will come on the Day of Judgment with good deeds the like (in magnitude) of a mountain. He will find that his tongue has destroyed them all.

And he will come with bad deeds the like (in magnitude) of a mountain. He will find that his tongue has destroyed them all because of the abundance of dhikr of Allaah (which he used to make).

[al-Jawaab al-kaafii]

Only Allaah knows what is best for you

Do Istikhaara for your affairs because only Allaah knows what is best for you

 

Fighting has been enjoined upon you while it is hateful to you. But perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not.

[Qur’aan 2:216]

O you who have believed, it is not lawful for you to inherit women by compulsion. And do not make difficulties for them in order to take [back] part of what you gave them unless they commit a clear immorality. And live with them in kindness. For if you dislike them – perhaps you dislike a thing and Allah makes therein much good.

[Qur’aan 4:19]

 

Jaabir (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:

Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) used to teach us the Istikharah (seeking guidance from Allah) in all matters as he would teach us a Surah of the Qur'an. He used to say: "When one of you contemplates entering upon an enterprise, let him perform two Rak'ah of optional prayer other than obligatory prayers and then supplicate:

"Allahumma inni astakhiruka bi 'ilmika, wa astaqdiruka bi qudratika, wa as-'aluka min fadlikal-'azim. Fainnaka taqdiru wa la aqdiru, wa ta'lamu wa la a'lamu, wa Anta 'allamul- ghuyub. Allahumma in kunta ta'lamu anna hadhal-'amra (and name what you want to do) khairun li fi dini wa ma'ashi wa 'aqibati amri, (or he said) 'ajili amri ajilihi, faqdurhu li wa yassirhu li, thumma barik li fihi. Wa in kunta ta'lamu anna hadhal 'amra (and name what you want to do) sharrun li fi dini wa ma'ashi wa 'aqibati amri, (or he said) wa 'ajili amri wa ajilihi, fasrifhu 'anni, wasrifni 'anhu, waqdur liyal- khaira haithu kana, thumma ardini bihi."

(O Allah, I consult You through Your Knowledge, and I seek strength through Your Power, and ask of Your Great Bounty; for You are Capable whereas I am not and, You know and I do not, and You are the Knower of hidden things. O Allah, if You know that this matter (and name it) is good for me in respect of my Deen, my livelihood and the consequences of my affairs, (or he said), the sooner or the later of my affairs then ordain it for me, make it easy for me, and bless it for me. But if You know this matter (and name it) to be bad for my Deen, my livelihood or the consequences of my affairs, (or he said) the sooner or the later of my affairs then turn it away from me, and turn me away from it, and grant me power to do good whatever it may be, and cause me to be contented with it). And let the supplicant specify the object."

[Sahiih all-Bukhari]

 

Only Allaah knows what is best for you. This is a fact.

You do not have knowledge of the unseen. He does. He knows you better than you know yourself.

When you keep these facts in mind, you will realize that you can never know what is good for you.

Hence, before you embark on an endeavor, always do an Istikhaara.

If what you are about to do is good for you, Allaah will bless it for you and make it easy for you.

If it is bad for you, He will take you away from it and you away from it. Then, He will choose for you what is good for you and make you content with it.
