10 easy ways to earn

sawab in a minute
Ever thought about what you can
achieve in a minute?
Sometimes it all boils down to the minutes of
the day.
The minute you zone out during a class
lecture, the minute it takes for you to walk
from your office cubicle to your car, the minute
it takes for you to wait for that 10:00 AM
meeting when its only 9:55 AM, the minute
you waste looking at walls and procrastinating
when theres work to be done.
And yet, you find yourself having no time for
the remembrance of Allah throughout the day
because of your busy schedules and house
chores.
So what if one utilizes the minutes that go by
without us ever noticing and put them to
good use?
Heres a list of little things you can do in under
a minute to add to your book of good deeds
and make those minutes count in not only this
world but in your hereafter as well.
1. Take a minute and praise the Almighty for all
His glory and magnificence, say
Subhaan Allahi wa bi hamdihi
(Glory and praise be to Allah (SWT))
a hundred times over in under a minute.
It is believed that those who recite it enough
times every day, their sins will be washed
away like the foam of the sea.
2. You can recite
Surah Fatihah thrice in a minute.
By reciting Surah Fatihah,
one gains more than 600 hasanat (blessings),
hence, by reciting it thrice, one will achieve
three times the amount of blessings-
inshaAllah.
3. It is never too late to seek forgiveness from
Allah (SWT) for the wrongs in our life, for Allah
(SWT) blesses us with endless opportunities to
seek His mercy and good favor.
So say Astaghfir-Allah
(I seek the forgiveness of Allah (SWT))
as many times as you can in a minute and seek
Allahs (SWT) mercy and forgiveness.
If said with sincerity, it incurs goodness and
blessings in this life and the hereafter.
4. In a minute, you can recite
Surah Ikhlaas around twenty times.
Reciting Surah Ikhlaas once is equal to the
reward of reciting 1/3rd of the Holy Quran.
And if recited twenty times, it will equal the
reward of reciting the Quran seven times.
5. Remember our beloved Prophet (PBUH) in
that one minute and send blessings on him by
saying the following,
Sal-Allahu alayhi wa Salam
(May Allah (SWT) bless him and grant him
peace).
Allah (SWT) will, in turn, shower you with
double the blessings to the number of times
you recite it.
6. If you find yourself in need of strength and
patience to deal with daily afflictions, recite
Laa hawla wa laa quwwata illa Billaah
(there is no strength and no power except
with Allah (SWT)) more than forty times, be it
in a minute or spread over a day.
This verse is considered to be one of the
jewels of Jannah.
It serves as a means of overcoming lifes
obstacles and achieving success.
7. If you are walking and you see something
harmful in your path, take a minute and
remove it, so it can no longer be a source of
harm or inconvenience to someone else.
It is considered a form of charity in Islam and a
Sunnah.
The Prophet (PBUH) said: Remove harmful
things from the roads of the Muslims. (Sahih
Muslim, 2618)
8. Take a minute, ponder upon the blessings Allah
(SWT) has bestowed on you, and sincerely thank
Him for His kindness and generosity.
Take that moment and let yourself feel that
gratitude with every bone in your body, for
nothing in your life could have been possible
without Him.
And as humans, we tend to take His blessings for
granted. So consciously, make an effort to
recollect and thank Allah (SWT) for all that is
good in your life.
9. If you see someone in distress or in need of
help, do not hesitate, for it can take only a
minute.
Do whatever you can to alleviate someones
pain and be a source of comfort to your fellow
brothers and sisters, for Allah (SWT) adores
those who take care of those around him/her.
According to the Prophet (PBUH):
"A Muslim is a brother of another Muslim, so he should not
oppress him, nor should he hand him over to an oppressor.
Whoever fulfilled the needs of his brother, Allah will fulfill his
needs; whoever brought his (Muslim) brother out of a discomfort,
Allah will bring him out of the discomforts of the Day of
Resurrection, and whoever screened a Muslim, Allah will screen
him on the Day of Resurrection." (Sahih Bukhari, Book 43, Number
622).
10. Lastly, one of the most beautiful ways of
earning glad tidings in under a minute is by
reciting
Laa ilaha ill-Allah
(there is no deity worthy of worship except
Allah (SWT)) fifty times or more.
These words, in essence, are the basis of a
Muslims faith; it is Tawhid, a testament to the
oneness of Allah (SWT).
If the last words that fall from a persons lips
are Laa ilaha ill-Allah, he/she will surely
enter Jannah.
So make use of those unnoticed
moments of your day that silently
pass you by, and make an effort to
earn Allahs (SWT) pleasure and
boundless blessings.
