‎25 Ways to Enter Jannah (Paradise)


‎25 Ways to Enter Jannah (Paradise)

“We all want to enter Jannah but are we sincerely striving for it? There are multiple ways to attain the pleasure of Allah SWT and enter His Jannah. Allah SWT has made it easy for us to enter His Jannah but some of us forget this due to an ‘attachment’ to this temporary worldly life!

Following are some hadiths which will show us 25 ways or good deeds to enter the Jannah. Remember, these are not the ‘only’ 25 ways and there should be ‘sincerity’ and ‘consistency’ in these acts to get Jannat-ul-Firdause InshaAllah :)

Wednesday Circle | 15 Second Reminders | 03: The Qualities of the Hypocrites


Wednesday Circle | 15 Second Reminders | 03: The Qualities of the Hypocrites

Yesterday at the Circle we concluded the brief explanation of verses 1-20 of Surah Al-Baqarah.

The first 5 verses of Surah Al Baqarah deal with the Believers (Muttaqun), the next 2 verses deal with the Disbelievers (Kafiroun), and the next 13 verses deal with the Hypocrites (Munafiqun) and these are the worst of people.

Wednesday Circle – New Years Action Plan


Wednesday Circle – New Years Action Plan:

Yesterday at the Wednesday Circle we discussed our collective plans for 2015 and came up with the action points below.

We shall be monitoring ourselves against the targets below on a monthly basis to check how we are progressing. May Allah give us the Tawfiq.

Action Plan:

  1. Regularly attend the Wednesday Circle 

The Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) said: “There are no people who remember Allah without the angels surrounding them, mercy covering them, tranquillity descending on them, and Allah mentioning them to those who are with Him.” [Muslim, at-Tirmidhi] 

  1. Read at least 12 books (of all genres) in the year

Read: In the name of thy Lord Who createth, Createth man from a clot. Read: And thy Lord is the Most Bounteous, Who teacheth by the pen, Teacheth man that which he knew not.

[Qur’an 96: 1-5]

  1. Pray the 5 daily prayers and make up later in the day any that are missed due to School or other reasons.

The Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) said to Abu Dharr (RA): “Observe prayer at its prescribed time, then go (to meet) your needs, and if the Iqama is pronounced, and you are present in the mosque, then observe prayer (along with the congregation).” [Sahih Muslim]

  1. Complete the Recitation of the Qur’an at least once in 2015

Abu Umamah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace)saying, “Read the Qur’an, for it will come as an intercessor for its reciters on the Day of Resurrection.” [Muslim].

  1. Attend the Masjid regularly

The Messenger of Allah (May Allah bless him and grant him peace) said: “Prayer in a group is twenty-seven times better than the prayer of a man by himself.” [Muwatta of Imam Malik]

  1. Give Da’wah to others

The Messenger of God (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “Indeed, Allah, the angels, the denizens of the heavens and the earth, the ants in their burrows, and the fish in the sea pray for blessings to come upon those who teach good to people.” [At-Tirmidhi]

  1. Complete an act of Sadaqa Jaariyah (an action that has ongoing benefits to others, such as teaching someone to recite Al-Fatiha or teaching someone a skill that you have like riding a bike, tying shoe laces etc)

The Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) said: “Every right thing is Sadaqa (charity).” [Sahih Al-Bukhari]

The youngsters also added their own individual targets to the list, such as getting good exam results, doing better at School etc

What are your aspirations for the coming year  – share below.
