Effortless Acts with Great Rewards During Ramadan?

Allah Almighty has facilitated for us His remembrance and the communication with Him and the means to earn rewards.

So, for some recommendations, the below acts are almost effortless, but they have enormous reward, Insha’Allah, if done with the right intention.

For example, while taking a break from work, waiting in the elevator, commuting, walking to your destination, cooking … etc., you could earn numerous rewards by doing the following:

1- RECITE SURAT AL-FATIHA & LAST VERSES OF SURAT AL BAQARAH

First of all, remember Al-Fatiha and the last verses of Chapter 2.

Ibn ‘Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) reported:

While Jibril (Gabriel) was sitting with the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him), he heard a sound above him. He lifted his head and said: “This is a gate which has been opened in heaven today. It was never opened before.” Then an angel descended through it, he said: “This is an angel who has come down to earth. He never came down before.” He sent greetings and said: “Rejoice with two lights given to you. Such lights were not given to any Prophet before you. These (lights) are: Fatihah-til-Kitab (Surat Al-Fatihah), and the concluding Ayat of Surat Al-Baqarah. You will never recite a word from them without being given the blessings it contains.” (Muslim).

2- RECITE SURAT AL-IKHLAS

Also Chapter 112 of the Quran:

The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:

Allah divided the Quran into three parts, and He made: “Say: He, Allah is One” [Surah al-Ikhlas] one part out of the (three) parts of the Quran. (Sahih Muslim).

3- RECITE AL MU’AWWADHATAIN (SURAT AL-FALAQ AND SURAT AN-NAS)

Abdullah bin Khubaib (may Allah be pleased with him) reported:

The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said to me, “Recite Surat Al-Ikhlas and Al- Mu’awwidhatain (Surat Al-Falaq and Surat An-Nas) three times at dawn and dusk. It will suffice you in all respects”. (Abu Dawud and At-Tirmidhi).

4- RECITE AYATUL KURSI

Narrated ‘Abdullah bin Mas’ud: “Allah has not created in the heavens nor in the earth what is more magnificent than Ayat Al-Kursi.” Sufyan said: “Because Ayat Al-Kursi is the Speech of Allah, and Allah’s Speech is greater than Allah’s creation of the heavens and the earth.” (At-Tirmidhi)

5- SAY THE RECOMMENDED DHIKR

“Allah is free from imperfection and I begin with His praise, as many times as the number of His creatures, in accordance with His Good Pleasure, equal to the weight of His Throne and equal to the ink that may be used in recording the words for His Praise”.

Juwairiyah bint Al-Harith (may Allah be pleased with her), the Mother of the Believers, reported:

The Prophet (peace be upon him) came out from my apartment in the morning as I was busy in performing the dawn prayer. He came back in the forenoon and found me sitting there.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, ‘Are you still in the same position as I left you.’ I replied in the affirmative. Thereupon the Prophet said, ‘I recited four words three times after I had left you. If these are to be weighed against all you have recited since morning, these will be heavier. These are:

Subhan-Allahi wa bihamdihi, `adada khalqihi, wa rida nafsihi, wa zinatah `arshihi, wa midada kalimatihi [Allah is free from imperfection and I begin with His praise, as many times as the number of His creatures, in accordance with His Good Pleasure, equal to the weight of His Throne and equal to the ink that may be used in recording the words for His Praise]’. (Muslim)

6- CALL YOUR PARENTS, CHECK ON THEM AND/OR CHEER THEM UP

7- CALL A RELATIVE TO CHECK ON HIM/HER AND INCREASE THE TIES OF KINSHIP

MORE GOOD DEEDS

– Say: -“Astaghfer Allah.”

– “Our Lord, forgive me and my parents and the believers the Day the account is established.” (Quran 14:41)

– “Ask forgiveness of your Lord. Indeed, He is ever a Perpetual Forgiver.” (Quran 71:11)

– Make duaa, asking for whatever you want from Allah.

– Make duaa for parents and people you love.

– Send charity donation online or via sms (there are plenty of trustworthy organizations that accept donations in this manners for significant causes.)

– Send peace and blessings upon the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings upon him).

Abdullah bin ‘Amr bin Al-‘As (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) saying:

“Whoever supplicates Allah to exalt my mention, Allah will exalt his mention ten times.” (Muslim)

– Praise and give thanks to Allah sincerely

The Prophet said:

The uttering of the words: “Subhan-Allah (Allah is free from imperfection), Al-hamdu lillah (all praise is due to Allah), La ilaha illallah (there is no true god except Allah) and Allahu Akbar (Allah is the Greatest)’ is dearer to me than anything over which the sun rises. (Muslim)

So, while working throughout the day, we can remember Allah to have balance in our lives and so that life won’t absorb us or take us away from the path of Allah that has been facilitated for us.

SEX BEFORE MARRIAGE AND ITS CONSEQUENCES.

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so

MUSLIMS MOURN ALI BANAT - THE MAN ‘GIFTED WITH CANCER’

It’s a sad day for all those who knew Ali Banat, the young man gifted with cancer.

One of his biggest achievements is MATW project, (Muslims Around The World) launched in October 2015 to assist those less fortunate in the poverty-stricken areas of Togo, Africa. He was an inspiration to Muslim youth, dedicating his big fortune to charity work. His organization built mosques and schools for the less fortunate in Africa. May Allah accept it from him!

THE MAN WHO INSPIRE MILLIONS OF MUSLIMS EVEN WHEN HE IS PASSED AWAY (ALI BANAT)

Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
