Today's reminder is
an important one for every Muslim.
Because it's about an essential part of our Deen, which our last pantalla encourages us to do when indeed the prophets lie Selim does, which is knowing and understanding that there are many avenues for doing good. many avenues for doing good
flow of the time, some people think that certain,
you know, they limit themselves or restrict themselves to certain aspects of goodness, yes, we know that later to other is a great night, and indeed is a very virtuous night. Hi, Roman elfish. Some people try to focus only on it.
And some people focus maybe just on the last 10 or 10 nights from throughout the year. But the reality is that there are so many avenues for good and reaping such great reward as well.
If a person were to comprehend and practice them.
And that's why it's important, first of all, to stand there, secondly, to learn that avenues of goodness because there's so many avenues that you can do, and a lot of the time, they don't cost too much either. And yet, you can get so much reward from Allah subhanho wa Taala
group of people, a group of poor people from the Mahajan, they came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, complaining that those who have lots of money that have absolutely who will do those who have lots of money, they have taken all the rewards. Why? Well, because they fast like we fast, they pray, like we pray, but they, because they have money, they are able to give charity in the material charity. So the Prophet slicin lamb,
immediately informed me says Shall I not tell you of avenues which Allah has given you in which you can also give charity inadequately to me that in South Africa say hamdulillah this charity, we call it as B hat in South Africa as a panelized charity. You say Allah was a charity is a little less charity. Removing the harm from the path is it's a form of charity as I saw the power
enjoining good is a charity forbidding evil as a charity. So the prophets I send them went on to list for them different avenues of how they can attain a reward.
But notice, the wideness ranging from using your tongue choosing your hands to
to your heart all aspects. In another Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
the best thing for a believer to do
is to give a charity so a man said to the prophet SAW Selim
alright lm agent, where if I don't have a can't find anything to charity, so prophesizing himself Tamil via dache.
But then fair enough sec.
Go on work, go and work. By working you will earn money, which you can benefit yourself. And then you can also give charity.
Alright, fine. What if I don't do that?
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said
to me, what will be tomorrow models for in
their cars are enjoying good, tell people about good, you know, spread goodness, enjoying good, that is also a form of charity. You said I tell him if I don't do that. Also.
Then the processor said for koufonisia Alpha in casada. Then just keep away from the badness. Keep away from evil, don't do any bad. That is also a form of charity. So you can't get any better than this. Even not doing anything you will get a charity certified if you have the right intention and so on. So, there are avenues as we can, as we've said the prophesized lamb also informed us about stories of people who helped animals
And allows Pat as a reward rewarded them. The man, the woman who helped the dog, the thirsty dog, they were rewarded by forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala just giving a dog some water.
person who removed the harm from the past there was a big tree trunk blocking everybody's way he removed the tree trunk. Allah granted him Jen net for that.
And so on so forth. Sometimes just a good word you say will be important and give you a great
reward. Sometimes not even opening your mouth, just smiling is a great reward. That's why the prophet SAW ally and SLM said
like Khurana had to come in ellmau fishy and Willow Angelica Javi YG hin buddy, no one should despise or belittle any of the good things even if he's just to meet his brother with a bright or smiling or open face and hear something where he is happy receiving.
And he said that Khurana Jara Jara Taha
while I will be forced any chat, let's enable a female neighbor not hurt let her not belittle her neighbor, even if it's worse to give her.
The sheep's Trotter
the end of the cheek, which doesn't have any meat on it, but it is good for flavor, even if it's to give that to your neighbor, you know, so don't despise any of the good deeds. And always understand that there are avenues for you to do good in all aspects of your life. With the right intention, your sleep will be rewarded with right intention, your
food will be rewarded. When you eat with the right intention, your drink
will be rewarded with the right intention your playing will be rewarded. So all of that will be one more last pan of water Island.
planting a tree is rewardable bylaws.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, you know a Muslim, does not plant a tree or plant a plant or a tree. And then an animal benefits from this or a bird or a human except you will have some reward.

There are different aspects in terms of a Bader, which if you were to think about them and do them, you get so much reward. We know that freeing a slave is very highly rewarded in Islam.
