A journey called life

Hadith no: 40

Narrated / Authority Of: Abdullah bin Umar who said: The messenger of Allah took me by the shoulder and said: "Be in the world as though you were a stranger or a wayfarer." The son of Omar used to say: "At evening do not expect [to live till] morning, and at morning do not expect [to live till] evening. Take from your health for your illness and from your life for your death." (related by Bukhari)

If you are beginning your journey for Life Success – your work, studies, marriage, dream job, or working on any of your dream you have in your life – begin that journey by making “Perfecting Salah” – one of your main life goals, and revolve your life around “Salah”.

Indeed this is the path to true Life Success and within days, you will begin to make a difference – in your life and the life of those around you.


Successful indeed are the believers.


Those who offer their Salat (prayers) with all solemnity and full submissiveness.


And those who turn away from Al-Laghw (dirty, false, evil vain talk, falsehood, and all that Allah has forbidden).


And those who pay the Zakat.


And those who guard their chastity


Except from their wives or (the captives and slaves) that their right hands possess, for then, they are free from blame;


But whoever seeks beyond that, then those are the transgressors;


Those who are faithfully true to their Amanat (all the duties which Allah has ordained, honesty, moral responsibility and trusts etc.) and to their covenants;


And those who strictly guard their (five compulsory congregational) Salawat (prayers) (at their fixed stated hours).


These are indeed the inheritors.


Who shall inherit the Firdaus (Paradise). They shall dwell therein forever.

(The Believers: verse 1-11)

Allahu a'lam
