What is "Strive to Bring Alive"

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.

A Real Investment

Encourage one’s children, grandchildren and other youngsters in the family to become a Hafiz of the Quraan Majeed. Imagine if through our encouragement someone becomes a Hafiz! We will continue to have a share in that person’s recitation of the Quraan. Furthermore, once they have completed Hifz, encourage them to become Ulama, and we will secure our share in the lessons they teach, the talks they deliver and the services they offer. Unfortunately almost everyone is chasing after the degrees of the world while very few are acquiring the knowledge of Deen. Perhaps less than one percent dedicate themselves to Deen. Therefore the virtue and the value of the knowledge of Deen must be impressed on the young impressionable minds. While acquiring some degree within the limits of Shariah is permissible, this is not something to be highly impressed with and to be thrilled over. The real investment is to make one’s child a Hafiz and Aalim. This will help us in this world, the grave and the Hereafter.
