Mocking at people

Allaah says in the Qur’aan, O you who have Imaan! Men should not mock other men for perchance they (those mocked) may be better than them (those who mock). Neither should any women mock other women, perchance they (the mocked ones) may be better than them (those who mock)[Surah Hujuraat, verse 11]

Arouse the thought of accountability in afterlife regularly

Not a day should pass by without the remembrance of the accountability in afterlife. Indeed, the five times a day we pray (Salat) is the easiest occasion to prompt this thought. When there will be sincere reflection of accountability, our works will automatically be directed toward the good deeds. Hence, our intentions and motives, our planning and tasks will shape up for positive changes. A single good step would take us toward several good steps; Tawba, corrective actions, progress on the path of Allah سبحانه و تعالى becomes quite easy thereafter. This is the blessing of Allah سبحانه و تعالى; we should highly appreciate it.

Maintain pious friends

At this age of trials and tribulations we should take extra care to maintain pious friends. Our friends always influence us. The positive influences are beneficial in all regards and the negative influences highly threat detrimental consequences. Quite often it is not easy to judge a person even for years and decades! Simplest yardstick to gauge a person is piety – how much one fears Allah سبحانه و تعالى. Anyone can deceit you, betray you and harm you, but the one whose heart has the slightest connection with Allah سبحانه و تعالى will at least not do so. We make the mistake in selecting friends. We choose the one who is wealthy or we choose the one as a friend who is (apparently) influential in regards to the world. Sometimes we just think that someone is so gentle or humble in character; we make deep friendship with him in a little while. Often we positively conclude when someone’s good number of attitudes match with us. These are all wrong means and criteria to make friendship. Best is to “try to be pious and stick to the pious”. We wrongly think that pious people are boring and they talk only about afterlife. The genuine pious friends are useful in all regards; they possess the quality of selflessness. Their generosity and support is sincere. Their suggestions and advice will be guidance for this world and afterlife. Mixing with them will make peace prevail in our heart.

Do not forsake the reality

Forsaking the reality and embracing the triviality is a fool’s job. However, it is true that we are frequently forsaking several realities. We enjoy illusions and dreams. We like to live in a fantasy kingdom. When we plan, we plan exclusively for the worldly-life, when we become carefree regarding the haraam dealings, we directly forgo the clear commands of Allah سبحانه و تعالى and undertake the worldly-business and affairs. If a fair cost-benefit analysis of our activities is undertaken, what results would come out?! At what cost do we gain the temporary and trivial benefits of this world? If the cost of our worldly-benefits is “sacrificing the whole afterlife”, how much fair would it be to call our achievements “benefits”? Let not, at any cost, be so foolish. Let not exhaust this precious life be wasted hankering after uncertainties and losing concerns. Allah سبحانه و تعالى has guided us through the path of eternal success. Ignoring this path and taking up any other way will lead to complete failure and extreme woe.

Think before stepping forward

Reacting through uttering some words is easy. However, the rule “think before you speak” is bit difficult to act upon and therein lies the success. You will notice that how many of our utterances had already gone against us! On the other hand, when we had thought and spoke up, we delivered well; things did not turn up against us. Thoughts guide us to rightly communicate. Often the conclusion of a rational thought addresses us to keep quiet. Indeed in many situations, when we just keep quiet – things are much better and under our control.

Remembrance of Allah سبحانه و تعالى

Remembrance of Allah سبحانه و تعالى (Zikr) is very easy. Its benefits are also innumerable. A Muslim finds unprecedented peace every time in Allah سبحانه و تعالى’s Remembrance. There is absolutely no stipulation that can restrict this marvelous gift! In every state it is possible to be in the remembrance of Allah سبحانه و تعالى. This is a great favor from Allah سبحانه و تعالى that, the acts which refrains the tongue to take the name of Allah سبحانه و تعالى, are also not disregarded! Whenever an action is accomplished in the Sunnah way, it is regarded as Allahسبحانه و تعالى ‘s Zikr. Reciting the Duas related to various actions results in the Zikr or Remembrance of Allah سبحانه و تعالى. Therefore, if we exert little effort, it is possible for us to take Allah سبحانه و تعالى’s name the whole day, which fills our life with great blessings.

Contemplate the consequences

Most of the time we err because we do not think before we initiate an action. Every task we accomplish results in either good or bad. A Mu’min does not (and should not) make haste to embark on worldly affairs. He contemplates the consequences in respect of Allah’s command. If Allah’s command permits, he steps forward. If Allah’s command does not permit, he holds back. This brings peace in a believer’s mind and removes any apprehension or restlessness.

Seek divine help in all regards

If there is one task you are about to accomplish or one target you have aimed to achieve, how much efforts or how many means of efforts do you take up? As a Muslim, of course, you believe that without the command of Allah, nothing materializes. Therefore, without His guidance, we cannot pursue and achieve any single success. Hence, let us take utmost care to begin every endeavor seeking Allah’s help. Let us supplicate (do Dua) to Him to seek His guidance. This is an act which is very easy, yet neglected a lot.

Undertake some hardship for the afterlife

To build up a good habit requires some efforts. We break down very easily. Had we not given up the efforts, we could have risen up early, control our tongue, regularly recite Holy Qur’an and act upon many such good deeds. There is no magic, but “mujahada” required, i.e., hardship on the path of Allah. Hardship for a little while bring in great return to our life. People undergo a lot of hardship to gain in this world; can we not accept any hardship for a peaceful afterlife that will be eternal?

Incline toward Allah

In every situation of life, a Muslim’s inclination should be toward Allah Taala, his Lord and Master. Our pious predecessors’ state was such. However, at present, the Ummah has changed at large. Most of us incline toward Allah Taala during calamities and in distress. We become almost oblivion of Allah’s bounties and favors during peace and prosperity. Allah’s mercy and benevolence upon us is innumerable! Let us become Shakir – i.e. thankful and grateful to Allah Taala (for all His blessings and givings). This is a great yet very easy means to attain the proximity and love of Allah.

Relish the flavour of Imaan
