Is it almost the end of the day? 24 hours, all day long, how many percent of today, have you used for the sake of The One Who Creates you?
Are your deeds better today then your yesterday’s?
What about tomorrow? Are you prepared? Lets us all look back on small things. To avoid doing all the bad ones, and look for Allah’s ‘redha’ in what ever that we do. =)

Our Prophet MUHAMMAD (S.A.W) said:
“If the people knew the reward for the ‘Zuhur’ prayer in its early time, they would race for it.
If they knew the reward for “Isha” and the ” Fajr” prayers in congregation, they would join them even if they had to crawl.
If they knew the reward for the first row, they would draw lots for it”. (Sahih AL-Bukkhari vol. 1: no.688)
The Holy Prophet (S.A.W), also said to communicate to others even if you
listen One Verse (Ayah) & this one verse will stand on the Day of Judgment for intercession.
READ THIS DUA’ FOR A BETTER LIFE, InsyaAllah.. =)
“Allahumma- inni- ala- Zik r-ika -wa Shuk-rika wa husni-ibad-atika.
Oh Allah! Help me in practicing zikr, gratefulness, and sincere servitude to you”
Every person must continuously keep practicing DUA’, and prayers at whatever spiritual state or level of awareness one is at, as Rasulullah s.a.w did. It will be known more clearly in the life beyond death that nothing would have brought better income than one’s DUA’ and prayers.
May ALLAH make us realize the importance of DUA’, appreciate it in our lifetimes as much as possible and therefore empower our “spirits” . And… May ALLAH make all these easy for us and always guide us to the right path! InsyaAllah..=)
