Stick To The Good Things That Last.

Recommended Posts

As-Salaam alaikum,

 In Ayat 46 of Surat Kahfi of the Holy Qur'an (18:46), Allah Ta'ala says:--

 

      "WEALTH AND CHILDREN ARE THE EMBELLISHMENT OF WORLDLY LIFE, AND THE GOOD THINGS THAT

       LAST (al-baqiyat-as-salihat) ARE GREATER WITH YOUR LORD, AND GREATER IN EXPECTATION."

 

Material things are short-lived and temporary, but "the good things that last" will remain and endure for ever. That is, their reward will continue into the hereafter, and the hereafter is far better and everlasting. What are "the good things that last"?

 

The Noble Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, told us what they are in the Hadith, where one of his companions, Abu Sa'id al-Khudri, may Allah be pleased with him, narrated that the Prophet, alaihis-Salaat Was-Salaam, said:--

 

  "Make plenty of the 'good things that last (al-baqiyat salihat)'. it was said: And what are they

  O Messenger of Allah?"   He said: "TAKBIR (Saying: ALLAHU AKBAR), TAHLIL (Saying:

 LA-ILAHA ILLALLAH), TAHMID (Saying: ALHAMDU-LILLAH), and Saying: LA-HAWLA WALA

 QUWATA ILLA BILLAH." [Bukhari, Muslim].

 

 Also, the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said: "The most beloved words to Allah are 4:

SUBHANALLAH; ALHAMDULILLAH; LA-ILAHA ILLALLAH; ALLAHU AKBAR." [Sahih Muslim].

 

In view of this, we should include lots of recital of the baqiyat-salihat in our daily Zikr, when we come to remember Allah, Jallah Wa 'ala, in the mornings and evenings.

Best Regards.
