Accepted Actions Friday, September 6, 2013

“In order for any action to be accepted by Allāh ta’ala it must fulfil two conditions:

1.The action must be in accordance with the teachings of the Prophet sallalahu alayhi wasallam.

2.There must be sincerity in the action, i.e. it must be done for the pleasure of Allāh ta’ala.

It is imperative that these two conditions are fulfilled, otherwise the action will not be accepted in the Court of Allāh ta’ala. Often, enough emphasis is not given to the first point: if an action, no matter how sincere it is, does not conform to the teachings of the Prophet sallalahu alayhi wasallam, it will not be accepted.

This concept can be further understood through the example of a passport and visa. At immigration control the first thing that is checked is the validity of the passport. If the officer does not accept its authenticity then no matter how valid the visa is, the passport holder will not be able to progress.

Similarly, when it comes to our actions in the Court of Allāh ta’ala they must first be in accordance to the teachings of the Prophet sallalahu alayhi wasallam. Only then will their sincerity be checked. If both pass the test then the action will be accepted by Allāh ta’ala.”

Aww, alhamdulillaah a very encompassing advice from our respected SHAYKH Hafizahullaah with regards to actions. May Allaah Ta’aalaa grant us the ability to keep these two conditions in our minds and hearts before carrying out any action.
