IF ONE IS PUNCTUAL ON TWO THINGS ALONG WITH EARNING HALAAL WEALTH, ONE WILL GO TO JANNAH
Translation: It is reported from Hadhrat Abu Sa-eed رضي الله عنها that Nabi-e-Kareem صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّم said, “One who consumes Halaal and pure sustenance and acts upon the Sunnah while avoiding causing harm and difficulty to others, will enter into Jannah.”
BENEFIT: Consider, our Nabi صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّم has mentioned three actions of Jannah
1. Eating Halaal.
2. Acting upon the Sunnah.
3. Remaining safe from causing harm and difficulty to others.
These three are the mothers of all actions.
Halaal sustenance is that which has been earned in keeping with the Shariah, which has not been earned through Haraam and impermissible means. Acting upon the Sunnah means that one is vigilant in acting upon the Sunnah in all walks of life. Merely acting upon one or two Sunnahs is not what is meant. Thirdly, one’s dealing with other people is such that they have no reason to complain and experience difficulty. One does not cause difficulty to one’s neighbours, one’s workers or the poor and needy.
Ponder over these noble teachings of Nabi صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّم
The sequence in which he mentions these three things is full of wisdom. Nabi صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّم firstly mentions consuming Halaal, followed by acting upon the Sunnah. Consuming Halaal plays an intrinsic role in performing good deeds and leading one’s life in keeping with the Sunnah. By consuming Haraam and doubtful sustenance good deeds do no take place, instead, greater assistance to commit more evil is received. One who receives the Taufeeq to act upon the Sunnah will tolerate difficulties but will ensure that other people are safeguarded from them. It should be borne in mind that it is difficult for all three of these qualities to be gathered at the same time. These days, who lives according to the Sunnah when it comes to eating, drinking, marriage and all other social activities? The Sunnats of Salaah are easy but acting upon the Sunnah when it comes to one’s social environment, it is very difficult. In this day and age the Sunnahs with regard to eating and drinking, with regard to marriage and other occasions has been given up by all besides a few. The social fabric has been spoilt by all the different useless and ignorant customs prevalent in marriages. This is why, if one acts upon the Sunnah, one will go straight to Jannah. It is mentioned in Sharah Mirqaat:
Translation: “One who holds onto the Sunnah in every action, meant by this is acting upon every Sunnah and not just one among them, will most deservedly enter into Jannah.”
