and hire what is good, if Allah will hire, do what is good, any kind of goodness, any kind of kindness, any kind of service that you offer people, or you offer to people like them to flee home in order to be successful.

offer more or most benefit to others, those who are more beneficial to others. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam in one Hadith commanded the following, and the hadith is collected by Buhari a Muslim, it's a sound Hadith, he said, Men can be hydrati or he can allow if you had your day, whatever is helping one of his brothers, Allah will be in his help.

But you have the means you have connections, you have an access, so you decided to help this person. Maybe you don't even know him. But you know that this person is weak, this person is oppressed. So you go in order to support him and get back his life for him. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam said if you do so, Allah Almighty will keep firm your feet, on the Surat on the path, which you all know that all of us have to cross over hellfire. So some people will cross with the speed of the light, some people will cross running
some people of course walking and some people will be shackled down and fall in hell May Allah protect us again is that the Serato to invoke Allah Almighty to guide us for the straight path so that we will be able to access it easily on the Day of Judgment.

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, If you help somebody who's been oppressed, until you get back his light for him, Allah the Almighty will keep firm your feet on the path. On the day of judgment, He will deliver you out of this hardship. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam commanded his companions with seven commands a year

knew that somebody was in dire need for financial help Suraj to help him, he gave him a loan, Allah Almighty will deliver you out of your hardship in the dunya and in the hereafter. Now it was time to pay and he's not able to pay, you give him a respite, that makes it more worthy for you to be delivered out of the hardship on the day of judgment. And the Prophet sallallahu selama said, If you give somebody a loan, and he pays it off, back, then he's asking you for another loan, and you give it to him again, that is equivalent to giving the same amount in a charity, even though you will collect your money back.
