..:: Life Long Servitude! ::.. [Written by: Qalamuddin]

It is amazing how Allah treats a Muslim
A Muslim’s life should be a dream
The little servitude to show our gratitude
Is rewarded by Allah in countless magnitude

Imagine praying through the whole night
But not doing all your might
With just a short congregational Fajr prayer
You are considered to have done a night endeavor *

In fasting the same principle sticks
A month of Ramadan plus another six
The reward is just like fasting a whole year**
Doesn’t this make you happy to hear?

Now what will you say
No amount of money can pay
When the whole night and year
You are in life long servitude and that’s clear

Small deeds big rewards
Not just mere worldly awards
It is Allah’s ways –
So Muslims do not sway.

But do Muslims take our chances
The many opportunity opens without punches
Allah has given a place in heaven
For Muslims – that’s the best of tavern

In the little deeds we do
And the servitude too
Open doors to our salvation
Just to it! Without reservation

Such a beauty of Islam
The matter others slammed
Coz they do not understand
In Islam small matter is grand

Just a smile is considered a charity***
Where can you get such clarity?
Only in Islam with certainty
Start small with dignity

Now the information has been passed
Don’t wait act fast ****
It won’t take much of your time
Given the rewards all should be fine

* Uthman bin `Affan (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) saying: "One who performs `Isha' prayer in congregation, is as if he has performed Salat for half of the night. And one who performs the Fajr prayer in congregation, is as if he has performed Salat the whole night.'' [Muslim]

** The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) is reported to have said, “Whoever fasts the month of Ramadan, and then follows it up by (fasting) six days of Shawwal, it is as though he has fasted the whole year.” (Reported by Muslim)

*** The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: "Charity is prescribed for each descendant of Adam every day the sun rises." He was then asked: "From what do we give charity every day?" The Prophet answered: "The doors of goodness are many...enjoining good, forbidding evil, removing harm from the road, listening to the deaf, leading the blind, guiding one to the object of his need, hurrying with the strength of one's legs to one in sorrow who is asking for help, and supporting the feeble with the strength of one's arms--all of these are charity prescribed for you." He also said: "Your smile for your brother is charity." - Fiqh-us-Sunnah, Volume 3, Number 98

****The Prophet also said: "Give charity without delay, for it stands in the way of calamity." - Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 589

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: "The believer's shade on the Day of Resurrection will be his charity." - Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 604

The Prophet also said: "Every act of goodness is charity." - Sahih Muslim, Hadith 496
