What if we could do quick, easy and simple things to get huge reward in the sight of Allah when you can? Let's find out how

00:00:25--> 00:01:13

Assalamu alaikum I'm your brother, I'm speaking to you from the blessed city of Mecca. Maybe you're feeling down, because you're so busy with work or studies, or looking after the kids that you feel you don't have enough time to focus on your relationship with Allah, maybe you're looking for some quick, easy and simple deeds that can still earn you mountains of reward in sha Allah. If so, then you want to pay attention to the end of this video. Let's see what we can do. That is easy, simple, and doesn't take up much time. Number one, purify your intention. Yep, this is a big one. Yet most of us probably don't focus on this as much as we should simply make a sincere intention and firm

00:01:13--> 00:02:03

resolution to perform as many good deeds as possible for the sake of Allah. This can go a very long way. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam quoted Allah, in a hadith bootsy, saying, Allah has written down the good deeds and the bad ones. Then he explained it by saying, He who intended to do a good deed, but didn't do it. Allah writes it down with himself as a full good deed. But if the person intended to do that deed, and then did do it, then Allah writes it down with himself as anything from 10 good deeds, all the way up to 700 times, or many times over. But the Prophet seisen continues, quoting from Allah, but if he intended to do a baddie, yet did not do it. Allah writes in

00:02:03--> 00:02:52

town with himself as a full good deed. Yes, a good deed. But the prophecy Some said from Allah, if he intended to do that bad deed, and then did it, Allah writes it down as just one bad deed and this hadith is reported by Bukhari and Muslim with all the deeds you perform, try to have the intention that they are only for Allah and beg Allah that He multiplies your deeds. Also try to make even your seemingly mundane deeds into acts of worship. How can you do this? Well, let's take an example. If you make a sincere intention that you're working many hours each day in a halal way to provide for your family, then you will actually be rewarded for that Islamic obligation, even though you're

00:02:52--> 00:03:40

simply working, earning money for your family. Number two, praise Allah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the morning, every single joint of yours must pay a southern or charity every Suppan Allah is a sadhaka. Every Alhamdulillah is a sought after every La Ilaha. Illallah is a sort of every Allahu Akbar is a sort of every time you come on the good, it is a startup and every time you forbid, evil, it is a sought after. And all this is accomplished through two lockers that one can pray in Doha, and this hadith is mentioned in Sahih Muslim. Now solatube Doha is a prayer prayed anytime after about 10 to 15 minutes after sunrise until before the sun has reached its peak

00:03:40--> 00:04:23

or it's zeniff. In other words, before the time of God, and these two rockers should not take you more than just a few minutes. But doing this gives you the reward of all of the things that I just mentioned. in that study. The minimum number of records is two. So when you wake up in the morning, try to pray at least two rockers with this intention. In another Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said and listen carefully to this amazing study. Whoever prays the fudger prayer then sits in his place of prayer, remembering Allah until sunrise, then Praise to Allah cows. And of course this is referring to salatu wa, and then praise to rock as shall be rewarded as if he had performed Hajj

00:04:23--> 00:04:59

and Umrah with a reward that is complete, complete, complete, wow, Allahu Akbar, sitting in your place after fudger until about 15 minutes of the sunrise making dhikr of Allah and then praying only to rock as of Baja prayer can give such a huge reward. Now bear in mind for those of you who want a shortcut, while you do get the reward of the Hajj and Umrah It doesn't mean that the obligation of actually doing hedge is dropped. You still have to do that if you're able to do so number three. So the third thing that we can do simple easy

00:05:00--> 00:05:41

Vicker remembering Allah is something that can be done anywhere, any time even when you're performing other tasks. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, should I not inform you of the best of your deeds, the purest of them with your master, and the highest of them in your rank, something that is better for you than spending gold and silver and better for you than meeting your enemy and striking their necks and they strike your next they said, of course, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the remembrance of Allah and this is in German autonomy. Let's take a look at some quick and easy words of Vicar or remembrance of Allah, which have huge reward in

00:05:41--> 00:06:26

the sight of Allah. Firstly, La ilaha illallah wa de la sharika lah homolka Allah will handle what what Allah Cooley say in Kadena This means none has the right to be worshipped but Allah alone, who has no partner, His is the dominion, and his is the praise and he's able to do all things. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, If anyone says in the morning, and then he mentioned this Vicar, he will have the reward equivalent to setting free a slave from among the descendants of his smile or a Salah. He will have 10 good deeds recorded for him, and 10 evil deeds deducted from him. And he will be raised in rank by 10 degrees. And he will be guarded against the shaitan until the

00:06:26--> 00:07:09

evening. And if he says these words in the evening, you will have a similar outcome until the morning and this was reported by Abu Dhabi and we know that Islam attaches huge reward to freeing slaves. And while we can't free slaves and get that reward, we can still get that huge reward. By doing this Vic, another highly rewarding Vicar is to say Subhana Allah He will be handy he sapan Allahu Alem prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in a famous Hadith there are two statements that are light on the tongue, heavy on the scales and beloved to a rough man, the Merciful Subhana Allah He will be handy he Subhana Allah Allah or the witch which means Glory be to

00:07:09--> 00:07:57

Allah and His is all praise. And Allah the greatest is free from imperfection. And this hadith is reported by the party and Muslim. Number four. The fourth thing that is easy for us to do with a lot of reward is reciting the Quran. If you don't have time to read lots of Quran, Allah through his infinite mercy has made the reward of reciting some parts of the Quran more than others. For example, reciting surah to airfloss, who Allahu Ahad Allah format, let me lead welcome unit. While I'm yaku, Khufu and ahead gets you the reward equal to reciting one third of the Quran. Our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said about this surah by him in whose hand is my soul, it is

00:07:57--> 00:08:44

equal to one third of the Quran. This Hadith is reported by pocari. Another example of this is reciting ayatul kursi, which is iron number 255. From sudo to bacara, which is the chapter number two of the Quran. It was narrated that Abu Omar Amma rob the Allahu anhu said, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever recites out of courtesy immediately after each obligatory prayer, there will be nothing standing between him and paradise except for death of love. And this is reported by NSA and with an advance so try to really concentrate and contemplate on Allah's majesty. When you are reciting these if you can see, they only take a short amount of time,

00:08:45--> 00:09:00

but yet the reward is immense. Number five, seeking forgiveness, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said the best supplication for seeking forgiveness is to say Allahumma Antara de la ilaha illa and kolokotronis

00:09:01--> 00:09:04

wanna Allah, wa It can

00:09:05--> 00:09:53

also be coming shortly ma Sana to Abu laka, the neomatik la Abu be done be thoroughly for in July of Uber in the end. And this means a lot You are my Lord, there is no true God except you. You have created me and I am your slave and I hold to your covenant as far as I can I seek refuge in You from the evil of what I have done. I acknowledge the favors that you have bestowed upon me, and I confess my sins, pardon me, but none but you has the power to pardon he who supplicates in these terms during the day with firm belief in it and dies on the same day. In other words before the evening, he will be a person of Florida. And if anyone supplicates in these words during the night with firm

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

belief in it and dies before the morning, he will be a person of paradise. So Panama beach

00:10:00--> 00:10:43

The words of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam this beautiful Hadith. Now another thing to bear in mind is don't just seek forgiveness for yourself. But ask Allah to forgive all the Muslims. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever seeks forgiveness for the believing men and believing women, Allah will give him for every believing man and every believing woman, one good deed so pan Allah, that's potentially billions of deeds, for simply asking forgiveness for your fellow Muslims, especially when you consider all those who are alive now and those who have passed away throughout time so you can say, Allah homophily Muslim Mina well Muslim as well with me Nina will move minute,

00:10:43--> 00:11:30

Allah here remain humble and what be rough matica or hamara me, Oh ALLAH forgive the Muslims, male and female, forgive the believers, male and female, those who are alive and those who have passed away with your mercy of you who have mercy. Number six, recite guru sending Salam or Salam upon the prophets of Allah. Allah is among the most virtuous acts of worship. The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever sends Salah upon me once, Allah will send Salah upon him 10 times, and will erase 10 sins from him and will raise him 10 degrees in rank. And this hadith is narrated by an essay, all you have to do to get this reward is to simply say Allahumma salli, ala

00:11:30--> 00:12:18

Muhammad, Oh ALLAH says Allah upon Mohammed, which means that you're asking Allah to bestow His blessings upon Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, or something of that nature. Number seven, give charity. There are so many virtues of giving charity, but we don't have time to go into all of that detail right now. But just reflect on this verse from the Quran. Allah says, the likeness of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is the likeness of a grain meaning a grain of corn, it grows seven is and each has 100 grains. Allah gives many fold increase to whomsoever He wills and allies or sufficient for his creatures needs. All knowing, even giving one pound or dollar with the right

00:12:18--> 00:12:43

intention will inshallah be rewarded multiple times over. So brothers and sisters, let's try our best to do all these things if we can, or at least most of them as they are easy deeds to do with huge reward on our scales on the Day of Judgment, and we need this reward on that terrifying day. I'm your brother abdus salam Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
