Preserving the Jewels of Islaamic Knowledge

Excerpt from “The Best Plan for Our Life”

Posted by tayybahppn on April 8, 2009


“Most of our programs today are based on “may Allah forgive us.” Which means, Allahu Ghafoorun Raheem [Allah is oft-forgiving, most- merciful]. “Whatever I do, Allahu Ghafoorun Raheem. I cannot do better than that.” Why?!


Why would you be so satisfied with this low standard when it comes to dealing with Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala? When it comes to dealing with your customers, you’re always looking for the best performance. By what? Looking for the best programs available in the market. Software, upgrade your systems. Hardware, you buy a new system. All of this to help you manage your time and manage your business.


Have you ever tried to program and upgrade your spiritual software? The hardware is one. That’s you. But your software, your understanding – the system by which you work in this life – have you ever tried that?


You probably need some extra help: manuals, books, [soft]ware to add to your life – to read and learn and exercise.


Well, here is the solution I have – a software that will help you in sha’ Allah ta’ala in this life, and hopefully in the aakhirah. This software is divine, and it’s very, very simple. I call this “The Best Roadmap – or Blueprint – for a Successful Career and Successful Life in this Dunya.” This is a good plan. You start with this, and that’s the best program you would ever have in your life in sha’ Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala.


What is it? Here is the plan:



عن أبي ذر الغفاري رضي الله عنه، و معاذ ابن جبل، رضي الله عنهم جميعا،
قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم: ” اتق الله حيثما كنت، و أتبع السيئة
الحسنة تمحها، و خالق الناس بخلق حسن.”


The Prophet  said in this hadith:

اتق الله
– fear Allah

حيثما كنت – wherever you are

و أتبع السيئة الحسنة تمحها
– and follow every bad deed that you make
in life with another one that is better (hasana/حسنة), it will erase

و خالق الناس بخلق حسن
– treat people with good manners
