In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
The negligence and carelessness regarding the Aqaa’id (beliefs), Ibaadaat (acts of worship) and Mu’aamalaat (business transactions) of Muslims has reached its peak. If Muslims were recopised strictly according to the proper Islaamic definition of a Muslim, then only a small number from among the 1.2 billion Muslims of the world would be regarded as true Muslims. This will be even more evident when it concerns business deals and financial transactions they would not be regarded as true Muslims since most of their dealings and transactions are, today, very far from the noble standards of Islaam.

2. PRAYING


Akhlaq & Spirituality, Easy Good Deeds

Allah likes his bondsmen to pray to Him. If a man, however beneficent he may be, is again and again asked for anything, he sooner or later loses his patience and becomes angry. But Allah, on the contrary, is, pleased the more his bondsmen ask him.

Hadith tells as that Allah is displeased with one who does not ask him for anything in prayer.

1. GOOD INTENTION


Akhlaq & Spirituality, Easy Good Deeds

Intention is an alchemic prescription that can turn base dirt into noble gold. The hadith says “All actions depends upon intentions.” It is sometimes interpreted to mean that good intentions justify bad deeds too and turn sins meritorious. This is entirely wrong. Sin is always a sin no matter how noble the intention may be. For instance if someone breaks into a house to steal with the intention of giving away as alms whatever he would steal would be a thief deserving the prescribed punishment. His good intentions would not earn him any merit nor would his sin be pardoned.
