RAMADHAN DHIKR COURSE: DAY 9
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته
ربي اشرح لي صدري و يسر لي أمر
One day left to complete the first 10 days of Ramadhan.
Subhaana Allah. Our times lack barakah in them.
Dhikr of the Day
لا إله إلا الله وحده لا شريك له له الملك وله الحمد وهو على كل شيء قدير.
La ilaha illa Allah wahdahu laa sharika lahu lahul mulk walahul hamd wahuwa 3ala kulli shay’in Qadeer.
Action of the Day
Excited to know, right?
For today, we will try to spread a piece of knowledge that we have acquired.
When we look at the Hadeeth about the three things that benefit the deceased even after his/her departure from this World, of them is: “……beneficial knowledge (which he has left behind), or a righteous child who will pray for him.” (Reported by al-Tirmidhi, no 1376)
We all are students of knowledge; and by that, I don’t mean only those attending certain classes. In today’s world you can seek knowledge from authentic websites, but what do we do after knowing the ruling of such-and-such an act?
We abstain from it ourselves; but what about your fellow Muslims? Love for others what you love for yourself.
Take a moment to think of this situation: What would have happened to us if all the great scholars didn’t share their knowledge with the ummah?
Ponder over it…
Sharing knowledge doesn’t mean wasting your time talking and explaining to people. It’s actually building your future life in the Akhirah. While you’ll be resting in the Barzakh you will be earning rewards without doing anything, just because you you shared a piece of knowledge to so-and-so and she/he benefited from it and acted upon it.
It’s modern times now, and with all the advanced technology, doing da’wah is easier. It’s very easy to share knowledge through the apps you use and the social media that surrounds your life! It’s a big opportunity to share authentic ilm that you have and have proof for. Subhaana Allah! Allah has made things very easy for us. Look at how the Sahabah suffered, but they travelled to far places to earn and spread ilm.
You and I would have never dared to go. It was the spirit of benefiting the ummah that was in them; the spirit of da’wah! Sharing knowledge is a form of da’wah. Take advantage of it.
What we will do today is :
Have your niyyah intact. Find any topic that you have authentic knowledge of. Spread it to your family first. Try your best to encourage yourself and then them to do it or abstain from it, and then finally spread it to the world, having hope that one or two may benefit from it and may start doing it and thus you seek reward from Allah.
If you have phobia in speaking, then do the act. As they say: “Actions speak louder than words.” People may benefit from it, too.
Finally, don’t forget to pray for your parents if they are no longer with you in this world. They really need your prayers.
Share it! Don’t get afraid to do it! Our lifespan is very short! Make use of your health before you fall sick. Build up you life in the Akhirah by sharing ilm.
Smile; it’s Sunnah!
Have a blessed day.
بارك الله فيكم
وجزاكم الله خيرا
سبحانك اللهم وبحمدك أشهد أن لا اله إلا أنت استغفرك و أتوب إليك.
