What is "Strive to Bring Aive"

The purpose of this column is to motivate and encourage everyone to make an attempt to bring alive the very simple actions that will be presented every two weeks. Insha-Allah by making these very easy actions part of our daily lives, we will benefit from the blessings of practising on these a’amaal and they will also become a stepping stone towards doing greater actions.
As a means of encouragement to others, and also to spur us ahead, a vote counter has been attached. The idea is that for two weeks every person reading this column should make an effort to practice on the ‘amal (action) presented. At the end of the two weeks, those who have practiced upon it for at least one week or more should vote “YES.” This will Insha-Allah encourage others also to do the same.

1. One’s spouse.

2. Children: Either one’s own children or children in one’s care, such as one’s pupils etc.

3. Employees: Domestic servants etc.

In many cases married life has boiled down to moaning, groaning demanding and complaining. Let every wife ask this question to herself: “When last did I sincerely say a heartfelt “Jazakallah” to my husband? If one cannot recall when last one did this, the question is: “Why can’t you remember? Should this not have been a regular aspect?”

Unfortunately we have forgotten the lesson of gratitude to a very great extent. If he says or does just one thing against our temperament or desire, often our immediate response is: “You have never done anything for me”. Yet the husband may have done so much for us.

We have been created to remember our loving Allah Ta`ala. As a Muslim it is not possible for us to allow the day to go by without us taking the beautiful name of Allah Ta`ala. The name of our Allah Ta`ala is full of love, warmth, mercy, tranquility, and contentment. Sadness and depression, helplessness and hopelessness are definitely not for a muslim. With the Zikr of Allah Ta`ala a Muslim’s life is full of happiness, courage, steadfastness and hope. The Zikr of Allah Ta`ala is the live wire in a Muslim. Without the Zikr of Allah Ta`ala there will be a breakdown in our lives. The sweetness of a drink depends on the sugar added into the drink. The satisfaction of life depends on the Zikr established in our lives. Let us start by getting a Tasbeeh (a string of beads), and recite morning and evening:

- Istighfaar (Astaghfirullah) 

- Third Kalimah (Subhaanallahi walhamdulillaahi walaailaaha illallahu wallahu akbar) 

- Durood Shareef

Let us speak to Allah Ta`ala in Du'aa

In this era of advanced technology we easily communicate with the entire world. Yet, when last did we communicate with the creator of the world? We do speak to mankind about our problems. When will we speak to our All - Hearing Allah, the only Being who can resolve our problems?

If we ask mankind of our needs, we are humiliated and are regarded as beggars. However, if we ask Allah for our needs, then we are honoured and we become the beloved of Allah Ta`ala. Our duty is to turn to Allah Ta`ala in Du`aa (supplication) over and over again. Allah Ta`ala in his divine wisdom will definetly answer our Du`aas in unique ways. At times our minds are so anchored in wanting to see our Du`aas answered in a certain way, that we completely fail to see and appreciate that our Du`aas have been answered but in many other ways. Allah Ta`ala knows best when to give us, how to give us and how much to give us. All we need to do is to keep on asking Allah Ta`ala.
