If you want to succeed by Allah you need to add two things (niyyah and ikhlaas) to any deed you are doing: An intention to do it for the sake of Allah, not for being a great "scientist", not to be called a good guy, not to be a doctor and being called as a "saver", not for money or reputation or acceptance by people, only for the sake of Allah and maybe in ...

God is righteous and it's indeed one of His names. So people are asked about what they have done due to their abilities. Less ability means less duty which is always a good thing. That's why a blind person will not be asked about what sins he/she has done with his/her eyes. God says in Quran (Al-kahf, verse 49): [...] And not one will thy Lord treat ...

(I am not sure why the question got so down-voted, I'll try my best at least to answer.) It was narrated that 'Umar bin Khattab said: "I heard the Messenger of Allah say: 'Whoever builds a mosque in which the Name of Allah is mentioned, Allah will build a house for him in Paradise.'" -- Sunan Ibn Majah 735 [grade: sahih] (sunnah.com) The apparent meaning ...

Yes, indeed the reward is much higher; not only higher than people living in another place at the same time, but even higher than the companions doing a similar deed. The Prophet ﷺ told us that the time will come when we feel estranged wherever we live, and that holding on to our identity and teachings of Islam will be as tough as someone grabbing (yes, ...

Yes why not, Doesn't your dua's for their well being or asking Allah for sending them to jannah will not be listen. Or you need any reference for that. Okay here are few references for your question. The Holy Qur'an has stressed upon Muslims to pray for the welfare of other Muslims as brothers and well wishers in the Islamic fraternity; funeral prayer of ...

As Allah says in Surah Baqarah: Allah does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity. (Surah Baqarah, verse 286) That means that you have the ability to cope with your disability. Also, our beloved prophet (peace and salawaat upon him) said: The pen has been lifted from three: From the sleeper until he wakes up, from the minor until ...

First of all, your definition of kuffar is inaccurate. You can search this site or ask question to know the difference between a kafir and non-muslim. There are numerous verses in Quran that tells us to do good deeds towards every human being as well as other creatures. This opinion is also strengthened by the actions of our prophet (PBUH), who is the best ...

...While I am in the world, I am the Light of the world." 6When He had said this, He spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and applied the clay to his eyes, 7and said to him, "Go, wash in the pool of Siloam " (which is translated, Sent). So he went away and washed, and came back seeing... (John 9:6) The above thing is talking about Prophet Jesus ...

For sure, 'Jihad' literally means an 'intensive struggle,' or 'employing oneself vigorously'. It can be done through any Islamic means and not restricted to fighting. The Quran speaks about Jihad in general sense and never solely relates it to warfare. وَالَّذِينَ جَاهَدُوا فِينَا لَنَهْدِيَنَّهُمْ سُبُلَنَا ۚ وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ لَمَعَ الْمُحْسِنِينَ And ...

You're asking a much more generic question that is: Is the reward/punish of people with different circumstances the same or not? Obviously it's not the same. The person who is observing hijab in Australia is more rewarded. Each person is rewarded/punished according the circumstances of that action. Some Quranic verses: Talaq 7 Let a man of wealth ...

There's no such thing like we can build on rewards of good deeds of an ordered worship to leave this worship. Being inspired to do good deeds should in contrary be a reason to go ahead doing them. Also we don't know whether Allah has accepted our worship at all! Read for example this sahih hadith: Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) as saying: ...

First of all, it is not prohibited for a “common Muslim” to try to understand the Quran while reading it; trying to understand it is the whole point of reading it. Tafseer is, of course, interpretation, but you should read the Quran, even though in translation, the way you would read any book you wish to understand: by studying it. Far better than to have ...

Not necessarily the same reward as your son but you will have a part in it, insha Allah: Whoever intercedes for a good cause will have a reward therefrom; and whoever intercedes for an evil cause will have a burden therefrom. And ever is Allah , over all things, a Keeper. Surah Nisa':85 And Allah knows best

From the wording of the hadith: "Prayer in congregation is better than the prayer of a man by himself by twenty-seven degrees." (Al-Muwatta') or Prayer said in a congregation is twenty-five degrees more excellent than prayer said by a single person. (Sahih Muslim) One could conclude that this applies for any prayer. But when we check more ...

Answer: certainly not. When some act is sinful then Allah the Almighty in His deep knowledge and wisdom has declared anything related to it as sinful. The best example actually is Zina where even coming close to it is blamed. As for alcohol or riba a whole lot of people who are directly involved with it are blamed and also some people who are indirectly ...

Yes. As much as I know/researched, it is acceptable to do your deeds in order to (only) receive thawab (Islamic reward); although it will be so better--or complete-- to do that in order to get Allah's satisfaction, as well. On the other hand, it is also said that: the one who endeavors to go to heaven (and not to go to hell), in truth he/she believes in ...

Yes, indeed. You do get rewarded for learning Islam. How else can a person be a Muslim if they don't even seek knowledge about their religion? Read! in the Name of your Lord Who has created [all that exists]. He has created man from a clot [a piece of thick coagulated blood]. Read! And your Lord is the Most Bountiful, Who has taught [writing] by the pen. He ...

Yes, there is. Because you're doing something Good. Like you aren't harming anyone, you aren't doing anything sinful. So whatever you will do which does not cause anyone or yourself any harm, it will give you a reward.

Hoor al-'een are just one example of a reward, not the only reward in paradise. In general the ayat about reward\honour in paradise are generic, equally applicable to men and women as well. Some ayat that mention women explicitly: And their Lord responded to them, "Never will I allow to be lost the work of [any] worker among you, whether male or female; ...

It depends on your case (financial situation) and the dead line for your debt to be paid. Being in debt doesn't necessary mean one is not allowed to do charity (sadaqah), but if one has a debt or loan and is in (good) hope to be able to pay it until the deadline there's no harm in doing charity. But if not then one shouldn't do sadaqah as in the sunnah: ...

I think that it depends on the content. If it's correct, then the output will be positive. But, if it's the opposite then you will regret this step. My advice is: Think several times before posting anything, and be sure about it authenticity form several sources. Always cite references, to give the readers the opportunity to verify. Get your posts examined ...

The major points here are: your intention your sincerity and whether what you actually teach is halal or haram I've addressed the two first points to some extent in my answer on Will I get rewarded if I study worldly sciences with intention to do good in future? Now you should know that teaching might even be an ongoing charity (sadaqah jaariyah) صدقة ...

In Ayah 17 of Surat Assajdah, we read: فَلَا تَعْلَمُ نَفْسٌ مَّا أُخْفِيَ لَهُم مِّن قُرَّةِ أَعْيُنٍ جَزَاءً بِمَا كَانُوا يَعْمَلُونَ Fala taAAlamu nafsun ma okhfiya lahum min qurrati aAAyunin jazaan bima kanoo yaAAmaloon No soul knoweth what is kept hid for them of joy, as a reward for what they used to do.

Yes Dawa is a type of Jihad. Although it is not a replacement of Jihad in which one fights with his life and takes life for the sake of Allah.

All Praise to Allah Subhanahu wa Taala and blessings on Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him His family and companions Yeah dead ones would be rewarded from Allah Swt by His will but as mentioned by others paying the reciters is not fine.Read these to clarify it more قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ـ صلى الله عليه وسلم ـ ‏ "‏ اقْرَءُوهَا عِنْدَ مَوْتَاكُمْ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ ...

As far as I know, there mustn't be any problem if you do it by a valuable and Islamic organizations. So, as a rule (of Allah) your act will be accepted if you do it with a good intention and also if you searched to find a valuable Islamic organization (even though they do not do it ...) But the significant point is that you should search regarding the ...

Regarding the hadith you provided, this is an English translation, and in Arabic in place of pray are the words yad3oo lah which is a verb form of making a dua or any sort of remembrance of Allah it is not limited to praying. يقول: عن أبي هريرة -رضي الله عنه- أن رسول الله -صلى الله عليه وسلم- قال: إذا مات ابن آدم انقطع عمله إلا من ثلاث: صدقة جارية، أو ...
