Maximising On Our Deeds

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem


THE MASHAA`IKH AND AULIYA ALLAH have the same number of hours in a day as we have; they have the same kind of physical bodies as we do; yet their capacity of earning the pleasure of Allah Jalla Jalaaluhu and maximising on their actions surpasses us.

How do they surpass us?
What is the secret behind their success?

When a person becomes a success story; when he climbs the ladder of material and worldly success, then people are ever eager to know how he got to the top. …If, in a short period of time, a person ‘upgrades’ in life –  ‘from rags to riches’ – people want to know the secret behind his fortune. They want the guidelines and the tips that will open the doors of material riches for themselves.

On the other hand, the Muslim, who has his sight on the Aakhirah (Hereafter) and has enthusiasm for the Aakhirah, has ‘greed’ for doing good deeds and ‘greed’ for Thawaab (rewards). He is not content and not happy to remain spiritually poor. He wants to climb the ladder of spiritual success. He is constantly working to upgrade his Aakhirah, upgrade his Jannah and more importantly, upgrade his relationship with his Beloved Allah Ta’ala.

So we should be more interested and eager to know how the Auliya Allah build their spiritual fortunes. What is their secret?
