The BEST in Life – Collection of aHadith…

The BEST in life!!!!!

dream_a_z

I don’t know about you, but I want to be the best! I want the best education, I want the best car, I want to go on the best holidays, I want the best looking children, I want the best house, the best job. My aim is to simply be the BEST in life!!

Nowadays most people aim for most if not all the things above and often even more. No matter where we turn we see people seeking wealth and striving to attain rank and position in relation to worldly things to such an extent that the people’s visions have become blurred and priorities mixed up. We live in a time where we are under enormous pressure to do well in all aspects of our lives. It begins from childhood, where children are pressured to do well academically, to compete and get top marks to become professionals, doctors, lawyers, etc and then to get the best jobs and are further encouraged to live luxurious lifestyles. This is all ok and great for the life of this world but what about preparation for the hereafter? Did our beloved Prophet (PBUH) not say, “He who loves his worldly life will harm his hereafter, and he who loves his hereafter will harm his worldly life. Give preference to that which is eternal over that which is temporary”. Hadith of Ahmed Ibn Hambal on the authority of Abu Musa Al Ash’Ari.

So whilst we should aim for success in this life we should also think about what can we do to please our Magnificent Creator. How can we be the BEST in the eyes of Almighty Allah? What can we do to gain a high rank in Paradise where there will be everlasting bliss? Our beloved Prophet’s (may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) teachings constitute the most comprehensive, practical, sensible and truthful guidance to all people in all walks of life and in all conditions of human endeavour. The narrations (Hadith) of our Prophet (PBUH) combined with the Laws of Allah SWT give proper guidance to mans physical, economic, political, socio-cultural, educational, moral and spiritual being. Below are only 50 of hundreds of authentic ahadith by the very best of Allah’s creation, Prophet Muhammad (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), which if followed will help us work towards being the BEST in both this life and the hereafter.

So go on, be remarkable, be extraordinary, be phenomenal, be the BEST!!!!
