Little Steps To Jannah – Part 1

Asalamun alaykum warahmatullahi 😊😊 

I’ve suddenly found interest in Photography πŸ“· & I met a 15 years old niqabi today . 

Anyway, back to business πŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒ
Enjoy 😊😊

**************************************************

Who doesn’t want Jannah ? πŸ‘€

We all want it but are we sincerely striving for it ❓❓

There are multiple ways to attain the pleasure of Allah & enter Jannah .

Allah has made it easy but we forget this due to our attachment to this dunya😐

It should be the ultimate dream, ambition and the aim of every Muslim to strive and do everything possible in this life in order to please Allah so that we may gain top ranks in Jannah πŸ’―πŸ’•

So how can we gain eternal bliss ? How cam we make the best of every second we have to ensure that we get Jannah ? πŸ’­πŸ’­πŸ’­

πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡

1. Fulfilling Our Obligatory Duties To Allah .

There is no doubt that we must fulfill our obligations to Allah before anything else πŸ”¨
We can not expect to get closer to Allah without fulfilling our obligations to Him.
Obligatory duties such as the 5 daily prayers, zakat , hajj ,fasting & being good to our parents .
All these draw us near to Allah , the Glorified, the Exalted πŸ’ž

2. Doing Everything To Please Allah .

We must do everything in our daily life which pleases Allah & stay away from anything which angers or displeases Him 😐
Abu Hurayrah (RA) reported the Prophet (SAW) saying : ‘If I forbid you to do something, then keep away from it . And If I order you to do something then do as much as you can “. Al Bukhari

3. Maintaining Iman (faith)

“Faith wears out in the heart of anyone just as clothes wear out, so ask Allah to renew the faith in your hearts” Reported by Al-Haakim, Al-Tabaraani

If we want to gain high ranks in Jannah, we need to keep our Iman topped up .
This is because Iman fluctuates and needs to be maintained, otherwise it may fall dangerously low resulting in us losing our way and opening a path for Shaytan to misguide us .
May Allah save us from thisπŸ˜”
Iman can only constantly be high if we maintain it by doing good actions and everything which pleases Allah 😊

Without making efforts , our Iman will fall low & we will be vulnerable to attacks 😒😒

4. Reading & implementing Quran in our daily life .

Ibn Kathir says regarding the tafsir of Surah Al-Araf vs 179 :” The similitude of the one who memorizes the Quran but does not act in accordance to it , is like a donkey ,which carries a load of books , but does not understand πŸ˜“πŸ˜³

Therefore, we must not be of those who read Quran but do not come to understand it .
We should read and study the deeper meanings of the Quran & act upon everything we read .

5. Memorizing the Quran .

Ibn Amr reported that the Prophet(SAW) said: “it will be said to the companion of the Quran after he has entered paradise ,’ Recite and rise ! ” for every verse he recites, he will rise one level (in Paradise) until he recites the last verse with him (ie in his memory) ” Aboo Dawud

We should all strive to memorize as much of the Quran as possible in order to elevate our position in the Hereafter πŸ’―πŸ‘Œ

… To be continued 😊
