Subhanna Allah, if this is not the best deal, I don’t know what is! If you spend in charity for the sake of Allah then Allah in return will spend on you..
Yes, I said *ALLAH* will spend on you..
Will you accept the deal?
The Sahabah told the Prophet (salah allahu ‘alayhi wa salam) in the battle of Uhud: “Call down a curse upon them O Messenger of Allah!” whereupon he said: “I have not been sent to curse. I have been sent as compassion.”
The *mercy* our Prophet displayed in comparison to the savagery of our enemies today!
Have you ever greeted someone with this intention?
Try to always carry a clean heart towards people and let not anyone ruin it for you nor should you ruin it for others:
The Messenger (salah allahu ‘alayhi wa salam) said, “None of my Companions should convey to me anything regarding another because I desire to meet everyone of you with a clean heart.”
[Abu Dawud and Tirmidhi]
In Sunan Abi Dawood:
Sa’ad bin Ubadah said, “O Messenger of Allah, Um Sa’ad (his mother) has died, so what is the best charity?”
He said, “Water.”
Sa’ad dug a well and said, “This is for Umm Sa’ad.”
Not only is building a well a way of gaining ongoing charity (sadaqah jariya) after you die, but it’s is one of the best forms of charity in Islam. Spare some change and whether by yourself or collectively with your family, donate to build a well somewhere in the poverty-stricken nations. Do it for the sake of Allah and seek the reward for it.
Do you know what was more dear to the Prophet (saw) than the entire world in which the sun set upon? No, it wasn’t money nor position, wife nor children, car nor house..
So, why don’t we make it the most endeared thing to our hearts us as well?!
Since we all commit sin, let’s picture it being like a wild fire buring our house. What would you do to put out the fire? Most likely, you’ll try to put it out with water, right? This is the example of charity to our sins. Even worse, our sins are burning our houses in the akhirah, so it’s time to put it out with charity.
The Prophet (salah allahu ‘alayhi wa salam) also said: “The believer’s shade on the Day of Resurrection will be his Sadaqah (charity).” [Ahmad]
It’s common nowadays for married couples to go out into society and speak about their spouse, their detailed relationship, discosling private affairs, and revealing intimate secrets. These gatherings, social events, and close circle’s tend to breed lots of distrust. One minute they share a home, a bed, and the next they speak about it. This is why Islam promotes purity and honesty. It has come to protect our household from disfractions. It develops a family value that is binded by love, respect, and the pursuit of Allah’s pleasure. Therefore, if we know that we have this distasteful habit of revealing our spouse’s secrets or complaing perpetually about them in public or to our relatives, we have to refrain from it immediately. Allah has given a severe warning for such people and most importantly, its negative effects could appear sooner than later. It could ruin the marriage and plant distrust between the couple. Thus, we should realize that marriage behaviors are a reflection of our iman and it is a perfect combination of trust, obedience, mutual respect. It’s a covenant of truthfulness and secrecy, in attempt to work things out together just like a team coming together with a game plan.
In another hadith, the Prophet (salah allahu ‘alayhi wa salam) said, “One of the greatest trusts before Allaah on the Day of Resurrection will be a man who was intimate with his wife and she with him, then he spread her secret.” [Muslim]
A reminder for our blessed Muslim sisters, may Allah preserve them all and keep them steadfast. Indeed, acquiring a happy marriage through the teachings of our beloved Prophet (salah allahu ‘alayhi wa salam) is the way to eternal comfort, happiness, and a blessed home, bithinillah ta’ala.
