Seek children so that you may get good deeds even after you die

It has been made permissible for you the night preceding fasting to go to your wives [for sexual relations]. They are clothing for you and you are clothing for them. Allah knows that you used to deceive yourselves, so He accepted your repentance and forgave you. So now, have relations with them and seek that which Allah has decreed for you. And eat and drink until the white thread of dawn becomes distinct to you from the black thread [of night]. Then complete the fast until the sunset. And do not have relations with them as long as you are staying for worship in the mosques. These are the limits [set by] Allah , so do not approach them. Thus does Allah make clear His ordinances to the people that they may become righteous.

[Qur’aan 2:187]


Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:

The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) said, "When a man dies, his deeds come to an end, except for three: A continuous charity, knowledge by which people derive benefit, pious son who prays for him."

[Sahiih Muslim Hadiith No. 1631]

Seek what He has decreed for you means a child. This is the opinion of Abu Hurairah (may Allaah be pleased with him), Ibn Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him), 'Anas (may Allaah be pleased with him), shariih al-Qaadi, Mujaahid, al-Suddi, zaid bin 'aslam, al-hakam bin 'utbah, muqaatil bin hayyaan, 'ikramah, sa'iid bin jubair, 'Ataa, al-rabii' bin 'Anas, al-Hasan al-Basri, al-Dahhaak, and Qataadah.

You must enjoin good and forbid evil

O you who have believed, upon you is [responsibility for] yourselves. Those who have gone astray will not harm you when you have been guided. To Allah is you return all together; then He will inform you of what you used to do.

[Qur’aan 5:105]

 

It was narrated that Qais bin Abu Hazim said:

“Abu Bakr stood up and praised and glorified Allah, then he said: ‘O people, you recite this Verse – “O you who believe! Take care of your own selves. If you follow the (right) guidance no hurt can come to you from those who are in error.”[5:105] – and I heard the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) say: ‘If people see some evil but do not change it, soon Allah will send His punishment upon them all.’” (One of the narrators) Abu Usamah repeated: "Indeed I heard that Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) say."

[Sunan Ibn Maajah Hadith No. 4005]


The above Verse was understood incorrectly by certain people. Abu Bakr (may Allaah be pleased with them) clarified the Verse.

The Sunnah is the Tafsiir of the Qur'aan. We abandon our interpretations of a Qur'aanic Verse when it opposes the Sunnah.

This was the way of the Companions (may Allaah be pleased with them).

Who knows the Religion better than the Companions (may Allaah be pleased with them)?

Be moderate in seeking provision

Do they not see that Allah extends provision for whom He wills and restricts [it]? Indeed, in that are signs for a people who believe.

[Qur’aan 30:37]


It was narrated from Jabir bin 'Abdullah that the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) said:

"O people, fear Allah and be moderate in seeking a living, for no soul will die until it has received all its provision, even if it is slow in coming. So fear Allah and be moderate in seeking provision; take that which is permissible and leave that which is forbidden. "

[Sunan Ibn Maajah]

Sins darken your heart

No! Rather, the stain has covered their hearts of that which they were earning.

[Qur’aan 83:14]


The Messenger of Allaah (sallallahu alayi wa sallam) said:

Verily, when the slave (of Allaah) commits a sin, a black spot appears on his heart. When he refrains from it, seeks forgiveness, and repents, his heart is polished clean. But if he returns, it increases until it covers his entire heart.

[Jaami al-Tirmidhi]

Who will enter Paradise

Yes! whoever submits himself entirely to Allah and he is the doer of good (to others) he has his reward from his Lord, and there is no fear for him nor shall he grieve.

[Qur’aan 2:112]


ليس الأمر كما زعموا أنَّ الجنة تختص بطائفة دون غيرها، وإنما يدخل الجنَّة مَن أخلص لله وحده لا شريك له، وهو متبع للرسول محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم في كل أقواله وأعماله. فمن فعل ذلك فله ثواب عمله عند ربه في الآخرة، وهو دخول الجنة، وهم لا يخافون فيما يستقبلونه من أمر الآخرة، ولا هم يحزنون على ما فاتهم من حظوظ الدنيا.


The matter is not as they have thought (i.e. the Christians and the Jews) that Paradise is specific to only one group.

Only those who are sincere to Allaah alone without setting up any partners with Him and follow the Messenger, Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) in all of what he says and does will enter Paradise.

He who does the above will have the reward of his deeds in front of his Lord in the next world. He will enter Paradise.

They will not fear what they have to face of the affair of the next world. And they are the ones who are not sad for what they failed to achieve in this worldly life.
