Understand, Live by, Inspire

Are We among the Top Ten Performers?

It doesn’t matter whether you are a man or a woman. You are equally rewarded. No disparity, no gender bias. The only concern must be whether one has these qualities or not.

May Allah help us to take sincere efforts to adopt these qualities in us. Aameen.

Allah says in the glorious Qur’an:

إِنَّ الْمُسْلِمِينَ وَالْمُسْلِمَاتِ وَالْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَالْمُؤْمِنَاتِ وَالْقَانِتِينَ وَالْقَانِتَاتِ وَالصَّادِقِينَ وَالصَّادِقَاتِ وَالصَّابِرِينَ وَالصَّابِرَاتِ وَالْخَاشِعِينَ وَالْخَاشِعَاتِ وَالْمُتَصَدِّقِينَ وَالْمُتَصَدِّقَاتِ وَالصَّائِمِينَ وَالصَّائِمَاتِ وَالْحَافِظِينَ فُرُوجَهُمْ وَالْحَافِظَاتِ وَالذَّاكِرِينَ اللَّـهَ كَثِيرًا وَالذَّاكِرَاتِ أَعَدَّ اللَّـهُ لَهُم مَّغْفِرَةً وَأَجْرًا عَظِيمًا ﴿٣٥

“Indeed, the Muslim men and Muslim women, the believing men and believing women, the obedient men and obedient women, the truthful men and truthful women, the patient men and patient women, the humble men and humble women, the charitable men and charitable women, the fasting men and fasting women, the men who guard their private parts and the women who do so, and the men who remember Allah often and the women who do so – for them Allah has prepared forgiveness and a great reward.” Surah al Ahzaab 33: 35

1. Submit and Surrender:

الْمُسْلِمِينَ وَالْمُسْلِمَاتِ – the men who submit and surrender to Allah and His Messenger and the women who submit and surrender to Allah and His Messenger

2. Believe and Profess Faith:

وَالْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَالْمُؤْمِنَاتِ – the believing men and the believing women: those who practically embrace Islam in their hearts by submitting to Allah and His commands through their deeds and words

وَالْقَانِتِينَ وَالْقَانِتَاتِ – the men who are devout and obedient and the women who are devout and obedient

4. Truthful to the Core:

وَالصَّادِقِينَ وَالصَّادِقَاتِ the truthful men and the truthful women

5. Enduring and Steadfast:

وَالصَّابِرِينَ وَالصَّابِرَاتِ the patient men and the patient women

6. Humble and Allah-conscious:

وَالْخَاشِعِينَ وَالْخَاشِعَاتِ – the humble men and the humble women

7. Givers of Charity and Testifiers of Truth:

وَالْمُتَصَدِّقِينَ وَالْمُتَصَدِّقَاتِ – the charitable men and the charitable women

8. Observers of Fast:

وَالصَّائِمِينَ وَالصَّائِمَاتِ – the fasting men and the fasting women

9. Modest and Protectors of Chastity:

وَالْحَافِظِينَ فُرُوجَهُمْ وَالْحَافِظَاتِ – the men who guard their private parts and the women who guard their private parts

10. Constantly Remembering Allah:

وَالذَّاكِرِينَ اللَّـهَ كَثِيرًا وَالذَّاكِرَاتِ – the men who remember Allah often and the women who remember Allah often

If we are among these Top Ten, then we must rejoice. For Allah has prepared forgiveness and a great reward!

  3. Its high time we, who call ourselves Muslims, ponder on these inspiring ayats of the Holy Quran. Do we possess these qualities or at least try to mold our lives according to them? Even if we do not attain perfection, Allah knows what we carry in our hearts. Jazakallah for the moving reminder.
