Hastening to do Good Deeds: A Collection from: Riyâd-us-Sâliheen, Selected and Collected by: Sheikh Safi-ur-Rahman Mubarakpuri

For every nation there is a direction to which they face (in their prayers). So hasten towards all that is good. Wheresoever you may be, Allâh will bring you together (on the Day of Resurrection). Truly, Allâh is Able to do all things.” [Holy Qur’an 2:148]
And march forth in the way (which leads to) forgiveness from your Lord, and for Paradise as wide as are the heavens and the earth, prepared for Al-Muttaqûn (the pious).” [Holy Qur’an 3:133]

A Collection from: Riyâd-us-Sâliheen, Selected and Collected by: Sheikh Safi-ur-Rahman Mubarakpuri:

Chapter 9 (10), page 96-98

Abû Hurairah (Radhi-yallaahu ‘anhu) reported: Messenger of Allâh (Sal-Allaahu ‘alayhe wa sallam) said, “Be prompt in doing good deeds (before you are overtaken) by tubulence which would be like a part of the dark night.  A man would be a believer in the morning and turn to disbelief in the evening, or he would be a believer in the evening and turn disbeliever in the morning and would sell his Faith for worldy goods. [Muslim]

‘Uqbah bin Al-Hârith (Radhi-yallaahu ‘anhu) said: Once I preformed the ‘Asr prayer in Al-Madinah behind the Prophet (Sal-Allaahu ‘alayhe wa sallam). He got up quickly after finishing the prayer wih Taslîm, and stepping over the people went to one of the rooms of his wives. The people were startled at his haste, and when he came out and saw their astonishment at his urgency he said, “I recalled that there was left with me some gold which was meant for charity; I did not like to keep it any longer, so I gave orders that it should be distributed.” [Al-Bukhârî]

In another narration, Messenger of Allâh (Sal-Allaahu ‘alayhe wa sallam) said, “I had left some god for Sadaqah (charity) in the house, and did not wish to keep it overnight.”

Abû Hurairah (Radhi-yallaahu ‘anhu) said: There came a man to the Prophet (Sal-Allaahu ‘alayhe wa sallam) and said, “O Messenger of Allâh, which charity is the most rewardable?” The Prophet (Sal-Allaahu ‘alayhe wa sallam) said, “That you should give charity (in a state when you are) healthy and stingy and fear poverty, hoping to become rich (charity in such a state of health and mind is the best). And you must not defer (charity to such a length) that you are about to die and would be saying: “This is for so-and-so, and this is for so-and-so. ‘Lo! It has already come into (the possession of) so-and-so.” [Al-Bukhârî and Muslim]

  1. Many large departmental stores and small shops have availed these
    services by installing high quslity devices like Closed Circuit Television (CCTV), alarm systems and surveillance cameras in order to monitor the activities of their
    customers and othner visitors. Therefore, yyou need ensure that the lockskith you
    are planning to hire iis not only licensed, but also bonded and insured, if tthe locksmith is pazrt of an agency.
    You can look at the specifications and prices of the security devices you want to purchase when you search online.
