Seven habits of a good believer……

  1. Faith and righteous deeds 

“Whoever works righteousness — whether male or female — while he (or she) is a true believer (of Islamic Monotheism) verily, to him We will give a good life (in this world with respect, contentment and lawful provision), and We shall pay them certainly a reward in proportion to the best of what they used to do (i.e. Paradise in the Hereafter).”
[al-Nahl 16:97]

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) expressed this in a saheeh hadeeth (authentic report) in which he said: “How wonderful is the situation of the believer, for all his affairs are good. If something good happens to him, he gives thanks for it and that is good for him; if something bad happens to him, he bears it with patience, and that is good for him. This does not apply to anyone but the believer.” (Narrated by Muslim, no. 2999).

2.Being kind to people in word and deed


“There is no good in most of their secret talks save (in) him who orders Sadaqah (charity in Allah’s Cause), or Ma‘roof (Islamic Monotheism and all the good and righteous deeds which Allah has ordained), or conciliation between mankind; and he who does this, seeking the good Pleasure of Allah, We shall give him a great reward.
[al-Nisa 4:114]

3.Being patience in tensions

And seek help through patience and prayer, and indeed, it is difficult except for the humbly submissive [to Allah ]

4.focusing all one’s thoughts on the present day

And not worrying about the future or grieving about the past. Hence the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) sought refuge with Allah from worry and regret, from regret for things in the past which cannot be put right or changed, and worry which may come because of fear for the future. So one should focus only on the present day, and focus one’s efforts on getting things right today. If a person is focused on the present, he will do things properly and forget about worry and regret.

5.Repentance and seeking forgivness for all the past sins and asking Allah to help to protect from evil thoughts

{But whosoever repents after his crime and does righteous good deeds (by obeying Allaah), then verily, Allaah will pardon him (accept his repentance). Verily, Allaah is Oft Forgiving, Most Merciful } [Al-Maa’idah:39 – interpretation of the meaning

“Truly, Allaah loves those who turn unto Him in repentance and loves those who purify themselves”[al-Baqarah 2:222]

6.Remember Allah 

 
One of the greatest means of feeling content and relaxed and of acquiring peace of mind is to remember Allah a great deal (dhikr). That has a great effect in bringing contentment and peace of mind, and relieving worry and distress. Allah says: “Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest”
[al-Ra’d 13:28]7.Look at the people who has less blessing than you

If a person experiences anxiety and distress because of a disaster, then one of the most effective means of relieving himself of that is to think of the worst scenario to which that may lead, and try to accept what is at present.

Ramadhan Mubarak

 

Wishes from Islam is the best (Islam is the way of life)……….. RAMADHAN MUBARAK
  • Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “Fasting is a shield (or a screen or a shelter). So, the person observing fasting should avoid sexual relation with his wife and should not behave foolishly and impudently, and if somebody fights with him or abuses him, he should tell him twice, ‘I am fasting.” The Prophet added, “By Him in Whose Hands my soul is, the smell coming out from the mouth of a fasting person is better in the sight of Allah than the smell of musk. (Allah says about the fasting person), ‘He has left his food, drink and desires for My sake. The fast is for Me. So I will reward (the fasting person) for it and the reward of good deeds is multiplied ten times.” (saheeh Bhukhari)

 

  • Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “When Ramadan begins, the gates of Paradise are opened.”

Some best ways to prepare for the month of Ramadaan …

1 –Sincere repentance

It is important to hasten to repent from all our sins which affected our eman or other humans. so that we can start our acts of worship with a clean heart and peaceful mind.

Allah says “And turn to Allah in repentance, all of you, O believers, that you might succeed.”[al-Noor 24:31]

Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “O people, repent to Allaah for I repent to him one hundred times each day.” Narrated by Muslim (2702).

2 –Du’aa’ (supplication)

The Muslim should ask his Lord to let him live until Ramadaan with a strong religious commitment and good physical health, and we should ask Allah to help us obey our lord during the month and make him of the guided people , and ask Him to accept our good deeds.And protect us from all the evils.

3-write down your Ramadhan time table

If you write down how your ibadah (acts of woprship)it would be be easy for you to attain the fruits of ramadhan .For example if you can read at least 4 pages of Quran after every prayer you could finish reciting the whole quran in the month of Ramadhan insha allah .So planning for Ramadhan will make us gain the maximum during the month.

4– Rejoicing at the approach of the blessed month

The arrival of Ramadaan is one of the great blessings that Allaah bestows upon His Muslim slave, because Ramadaan is one of the occasions of good in which the gates of Paradise are opened and the gates of Hell are closed. It is the month of the Qur’aan, with a blessed night of power.

Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“Say, “In the bounty of Allah and in His mercy – in that let them rejoice; it is better than what they accumulate.”[Yoonus 10:58]

5– Seeking knowledge in order to be able to follow the rulings on fasting and to understand the virtues of Ramadaan read about them in books or websites or learn them from a teacher or a preacher.

6 – Hastening to complete any tasks that may distract the Muslim from doing acts of worship.
such as building or making the damages in your house or cleaning all the stuffs and shopping for eid etc…

7– Sitting with one’s family members
wife and children – to tell them of the rulings on fasting and encourage the young ones to fast Give them small gift to encourage them fast on this month.

8– Reading Qur’aan

Abu Bakr al-Balkhi said: The month of Rajab is the month for planting, the month of Sha’baan is the month of irrigating the crops, and the month of Ramadaan is the month of harvesting the crops. Make sure you read quran and train your kids too

And Allaah is the Source of strength
