OBSERVING AITIKAF IN HOLY RAMADAN

Ramadan

Holy Ramadan is half way through and Muslims all around the world are excitedly observing fasts of Holy Ramadan and Muslims spend most of their time in praising and worshipping of ALLAH Almighty to gain maximum blessings in this Holy Ramadan. Pertaining to the days left in Holy Ramadan, the most renowned and most awaited are the last ten days, because last ten days of Holy Ramadan have great importance in religion Islam as they come with Aitikaf. According to the verse Observing Aitikaf is a means of earning and gaining excessive reward from ALLAH Almighty for the good deeds.

There are so many ways through which a Muslim can maximize the blessings of Aitikaf and its outcomes. The first and the important thing that can help a person in maximizing the rewards and effects of Aitikaf is the pure niyyat (intentions). Your intentions or niyyat concerning to Aitikaf must be full of passion, pure and religious zest. You must not observe Aitikaf for the worldly purpose or with the intention that people will call you pious and virtuous; rather your intentions must have to praise and worship ALLAH Almighty, seek His forgiveness and mercy and fulfil the Sunnah of Prophet (PBUH).

Therefore, the reward which a Muslim gets from Aitikaf depends completely upon the intentions. If the intentions are righteous and pure, the reward will be blessed and fruitful as well.

In order to get the most out of Aitikaf, you need to make a proper planning to utilize your each moment in acts of worship. Aitikaf is of last 10 days of Holy Quran, so you need to make a proper chart in which you distribute your goals of worship and the hour distribution to earn maximum blessings. When you do so, then there is a chance that not a single moment of your Aitikaf goes to waste and you utilize most of your time in worshiping ALLAH Almighty and by seeking forgiveness from Him. Another thing that a Muslim can do in order to maximize the reward of Aitikaf and to improve its effectiveness is done by putting high efforts in worshiping and praying and of ALLAH Almighty.

One of the most common acts of worship that Muslims undertake in Aitikaf is recitation of Holy Quran. A Muslim can utilize his time in Aitikaf by reciting more and more Holy Quran and this will help a Muslim to earn greater reward and blessings and this will also give Muslim a chance to increase and sharpens one’s Holy Quran recitation expertise.

In short, Holy Ramadan comes once in a year and brings lots of blessing and rewards for Muslim, now its up to us that ho much effort we put in order to earn maximum rewards and blessings .

GOOD DEEDS HAVE GREAT REWARDS

Good Deeds

Good deeds erase the bad deeds and it is very important in religion Islam. Islam is the only perfect religion. ALLAH Almighty created whole world, humans, the jinn, and the angels; the angels are free from all kind of sins and they make no mistakes and obey every command of ALLAH Almighty, but we, humans are not free from sins, we do make mistakes and commit bad acts and deeds; we repent with sincerity with a hope that ALLAH Almighty will forgive us through and making good deeds and repentance.

If a person unwillingly commits a sin or do bad deed and then realizes he has committed a sin, he got the opportunity to erase it by doing a good deed. It does not mean to go and intentionally committing sins and involving in bad deeds then doing some good deeds afterwards in the hope of erasing it. A person should have pure intentions and sincerity in his heart of not repeating the sin again.

Most people think that an act of charity is putting few coins in someone’s money box and he has made an act of charity. An act of charity is not just giving money to needy but it is helping an elderly person in crossing the road or helping anyone in their need. ALLAH Almighty has made it very easy for us in this life to increase our good deeds.

Doing Good deeds are very important in religion Islam. Helping other peoples and conveying the actual image of Islam as the most peaceful and beautiful religion is highly recommended. On the Day of Qayamat or Judgment, each and every person deeds will be weighed and if the good deeds outweigh the bad deeds, ALLAH Almighty has promised us Paradise (Jannat).

Sometimes we keep putting off good acts and Deeds, even knowing that they are very easy for us. We delay performing good deeds even though we can earn huge Rewards by doing them. We should move towards doing Good deeds. Nowadays we all have a busy life and we stuck in our own works but if we give just a few minutes to these kind and small deeds and do not miss these opportunities; we will be able to get huge reward.

Most of charity actions do not cost us anything and they will take much effort and not tire us. Good deeds never goes unnoticed and unrewarded True goodness and acts of charity always have a good return, so we all should involve ourselves in doing good acts and May we start finding these small and kind Deeds easy to perform and may these acts of charity become a means of forgiveness for us. Ameen.

FUNDAMENTAL PILLARS OF ISLAM

pillars1– FAITH (Imaan):
There is no god worthy of worship except ALLAH Almighty and

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is His messenger. This declaration of this faith is known as the Shahada, a simple way which all the faithful and believers pronounce. The importance of this declaration of Shahada is the belief that the only purpose of human life is to serve and obey ALLAH Almighty, and this is achieved through the practices and teachings of the Last Prophet, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

2- PRAYER (SALAH):
Namaz is the name of the obligatory prayers; namaz is performed five times everyday, and also it creates a direct link between the worshipper and ALLAH Almighty. Namaz are led by a person who knows the Holy Quran and also learned it, for congregation. These five times daily namaz contain verses from the Holy Quran, and are read in Arabic language, the actual language of the Revelation, but personal supplication (dua) can be done in one’s own language.
Prayers are performed at prescribed timings at dawn (fajr), noon (Zuhar), mid-afternoon (Asar), sunset (Maghrib) and nightfall (Isha). It is recommended to perform namaz together in a masjid with congregation, but a Muslim can perform namaz anywhere possible with neat and clean place and clothes, such as in fields, offices, universities, factories.

3- THE ZAKAT (Charity):
One of the most important laws of Islam is that all things belong to ALLAH Almighty. The term zakat means ‘purification’ and ‘growth’. Our wealth and money are purified by setting aside a particular proportion for those who are poor and in need, and, like for getting the beautiful plant, prune of plants is necessary; this cutting balances and encourages to new growth. A pious Muslim may also give as much as he or she pleases in charity as sadaqah, and keep it so preferably in secret. Although Zakat is obligatory charity whereas Sadaqah is voluntary charity, both have wider meaning. Each able Muslim calculates his or her zakat individually.
4- THE FAST (Roza):
Every year in the month of Holy Ramadan, all Muslims do fast from Fajr to maghrib and abstain him or herself from eating, drinking, and all prohibited activities. Children begin to fast (and to start performing the namaz) from puberty, although many Childs start earlier.
Although the fast is very beneficial to the human’s health, it is regarded as a method of soul and self purification. Through Fast a person cut off from all worldly comforts, even for a short period of time.
5- THE PILGRIMAGE (HAJJ):

Hajj is the annual obligatory pilgrimage to city Makkah, Performing Hajj is an obligation for those who are financially and physically able to perform it.
