DIY – Make Your Own ‘Box of Good Deeds’


box-of-deeds-2Here is something good to kick off the new year and to give you a host of new deeds to complete every day for as long as you wish.

Make your very own ‘Box of Good Deeds’ for the home, workplace, school, prayer room, masjid or any other space that you like.

Follow the simple steps below to get going:

  1. Buy a medium sized gift / storage box (or for the more creative amongst us, make your own using an old card board box). Label it ‘The Box of Good Deeds’. You may also use a jar, a pot or anything else that you can get your hands into.
  2. Print out the following document – box-of-good-deeds
  3. Cut out the squares with the good deeds noted within.
  4. Fold up each square and place it in your ‘Box of Good Deeds’
  5. Place the ‘Box of Good Deeds’ in an accessible location in your chosen space.
  6. Use it everyday to take out a square, read and note the deed, carry out the deed, and repeat the same steps the following day, taking out a different random square each day.

Also share with us photos of your ‘Box of Good Deeds’ via social media tagging them with the hashtag #boxofgooddeeds and #islamopedia. You can also tag us by using our tag @islamopedia on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

You may also email us your photos on mail@islamopedia.co.uk.  (Depending on the number of entries, there may be a prize on offer for the most creative entry)

Remember, anyone who completes a good deed due to you sharing this with them, you will also get a reward equivalent to the reward that they get.

box-of-deedsThe Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) said:

“He who inaugurates a good sunna in Islam earns the reward of it and of all who perform it after him without diminishing their own rewards in the slightest. And he who introduces a bad sunna is guilty of the sin of it and of all who perform it after him without diminishing their own sins in the slightest.”

[Sahih Muslim]

Get creating, get doing and get sharing. Let’s make this go viral for the sake of Allah, seeking by it only His Pleasure and His Reward.

Do Good Box – Help


HELP – ACTION ALERT

Having been inspired by the ‘Do Good Box’ in the picture below, I would like to set up my own ‘Do Good Box’ for the home, my local masjid and the Wednesday Circle. I would like to have within it 365 good deeds that people can pick up everyday and try to complete it within the day.

In order to do this I need to collate 365 good deeds that we can do as Muslims, based on a specific Ayah of the Qur’an or a Hadith of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him).

This is where I need your HELP. Please can you share in the comments box on our Facebook Page  any small actions from the Qur’an and Sunnah that I can include in my ‘Do Good Box’.

I will of course share the end results with you all.

Thanking you in advance.

JazakAllahu Khayr wa Assalamu ‘Alaykum

PS: Please share this post with others that might be able to help collate the list of deeds.
