The Benefits of Constant Ibadaah

Time is running fast, breath is losing time a just little deed is left at hand while the UNLIT DOOM is knocking at the door.

Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said:

“Do good deeds properly, sincerely an moderately and how that your deeds will not make you enter paradise and that the most beloved deed to Allah is the most regular and constant even if it were little”.

Once a deed is beloved to Allah, exalted then it is weighed on the scale.
Do you have any good deeds (voluntary) that you are consistent with every day?
Know! The messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:

“Your Lord is merciful. Whoever intended to do good but did not do it, one good deed was recorded for him, and he who intended to do good and also did it (between) ten to seven hundred good deeds were recorded for him and whoever intended evil against him. And whoever intended evil, but did not commit it, one good deed recorded it against him, but if he committed that, it was recorded as one against him or Allah blots it, whoever is destroyed (afterwards by Allah) is perished. (Bukhari and Muslim).

Or do you know how excellence glorification and remembrance of Allah is to you?
“Verily in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest” the glorious Qur’an says:
Profusely remembering Allah, saying SubhanaAllah, Alhamdulillah, La’ilahaa-illah, Astagfirullah makes a servant beloved and draws him closer to Allah, and who ever love Allah he increases in his remembrance.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said:

“shouldn’t I inform you of the best of your deeds and the purest with your owner, the one that raises your status the most and which is better for you than spending gold and silver (in charity), better for you that you meet your enemies and strike their neck and they strike yours”. The (the companions) said “yes”. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “remembrance of Allah.” (Ahmad)

When the scale is heavy with righteous deeds, the slave prospers and succeeds. As the Prophet said:

“Cleanliness is half of faith and Alhamdulillah (praise be to Allah) fills the scale, and subhanallah (glory be to Allah) and Alhamdulillah (praise be to Allah) fill up what is between the heavens and the earth’s”. (Muslim)

From a story of a man who is constantly indulge on a certain ibadah (Dhikir).
“From the life of Imam Ahmad Ibn Hambal”

During his old age (Imam Ahmad) while he was traveling, he stopped by a town to have rest and passed his night. After salatul isha’I, owing to his humility (Imam Ahmad) wanted to stay for the night in the masjid (mosque), not introducing himself to anyone, to his humility not be welcomed by many people.

Unrecognizing Imam Ahmad, the caretaker of the majid sens him out of the masjid and even dragged him out of the masjid’s yard. On seeing the baker from a nearby place opposite of the masjid felt pity for him and offered to host him for the night.

During his stay with the baker, Imam Hambal observed that the baker would constantly recite istighfar (seeking Allah’s forgiveness) then Imam Hamad ask the baker if the constant practice of this Ibadaah (dhikr Istigfar) had any effect for him. The baker responded by saying “for there is supplication I do to Allah but is accepted except one.”

Then Imam Hamad asked him what dua was it hadn’t been accepted? The baker replied I have been asking Allah to provide with the privilege to meet the famous scholar Iman Hamad bin Ambal.

On this Imam Hammad said: “Allah had not listened to your dua only but He accepted it and drag Ahmad bin Hambal to your doorstep. I am Ahmad bin Hambal”. The old famous theologian said.

This is the significant and the perfection of constant ibadah.
