My Dear Respected Brothers and Elders If a person want to succeed in both worlds and want to secure success there are 3 very important steps.
The first known as achieving/attaining knowledge-the ilm. Whatever we do it should be based on sound knowledge. And I’m referring to sound knowledge or divine knowledge. Qur’anic Verse:
Q.S 39 AZZUMAR 9 ۗ قُلْ هَلْ يَسْتَوِي الَّذِينَ يَعْلَمُونَ وَالَّذِينَ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ ۗ إِنَّمَا يَتَذَكَّرُ أُولُو الْأَلْبَابِ
different between them. One equipped with light,guidance, direction, the other has no direction.
Prophet SAW said TOLABUL ILMI FARIDOTUN ALA KULLI MUSLIMIN WA MUSLIMATIN Attaining knowledge is compulsory upon male and female.
The second, after ilmu we should practice what we know. And we should ask Allah in abundance, O Allah grant us with the secure knowledge and give us the ability and inner strength to establish your laws in our daily life. That’s why When we studied the glorious Qur’an Allah has attach Success with 2 important ingredients: Q.S 18: AL Kahfi 107 إِنَّ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ كَانَتْ لَهُمْ جَنَّاتُ الْفِرْدَوْسِ نُزُلً
iman: the first, conviction and belief and virtuous deeds, the second, the practice of the ilm. If the ilm only the things that guaranteed success, syaithon will be guaranteed successful. He was alim but not with amal. No practice of amal. This person is ‘alim has studied /spent 9 years of learning and his accountability will be so hard before Allah. It is a fair thing but it doesn’t means that his accountability will not be questioned for his action. He should practice five daily prayers. We know that backbiting is haram, lying is haram, forsaken/ignoring the commandment is haram.turning back to qur’an is haram. Forsaken the sunnah is haram. Urdu: USKA AMALI JAMAL PEHLAAAT Hadrat Abu Bakar Assidiq learn suratul baqoroh in2 years. He’s a selected people by Allah .he has great capacity and potential. Compared with a children from ajam/non-arab sit in madrasah memorize Entire Qur’an in in 2 years and sometimes less than two years. Why? Because when Hadrat Abu Bakar complete suratul baqoroh, he has practice all verse of in suratil baqaroh. So make do’a O Allah please improve my iman.
Third steps, and very important. If we want to maximize our amal we should do this one. If the person doesn’t have this he will be deprived in the day of judgement. That is ikhlas or sincerity. The opposite riya-to do the act for name, fame or shown.it can beautify and strengthen our amal. In hadits bukhari /part of hadits; Innamal a’malu binniyat. All action based upon the intention. Some people said my intention is pure, I love the religion but I don’t practice. The intention should be conform with iman and amal. If only ikhlas no ilm or no amal the person will not get benefit from amal. Your amal will be rewarded based of your intention. Study the struggle of prophet. He is prosecuted because of Dakwah. People who previously labeled him al-amin/the trustworthy leaved, prosecuted and tortured him. Qur’anic ayat: said many times /repeated over and over again by
Hadrat Nuh A.S, Sholih A.S, Syuaib,Luth A.S, Hud A.S
QS 26.ASYUARO 145 وَمَا أَسْأَلُكُمْ عَلَيْهِ مِنْ أَجْرٍ ۖ إِنْ أَجْرِيَ إِلَّا عَلَىٰ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ
. I come and invite to the right path is not to get reward from you. You behave manly or like animal. You support or rejected. I don’t want reward from you. My reward is not from you. It is not my intention, the rewards is from Allah. If the intention doesn’t contaminated with other issues, it will be easy for us to keep our sincerity. If we help people we should put the intention of pleasing Allah, not to be appreciated by other people. We should correct our intention. Even it is normal to expect others to appreciate us but don’t be so upset and overwhelming in sadness of seeing others don’t appreciate our kindness.
