⚡️How A Small Good Connecting Back To The Highest Branch Of Faith ‘La Ilaha Illallah’‼️
Your life looks like through the concept of purpose knowing why you are here and in the process the how and the what becomes easy!!
when the prophet (saw) talks about the branches of Iman, the branches of faith and he (saw) says that Iman has 70 something branches and he said (saw) that the highest of them is la ilaha illallah then all the rest of them come out, that first branch of there is no god but Allah, there is no creator but Allah. There is no sustainer but Allah there is no one worth living for but Allah. There is no one worth unconditional obedience except Allah and he (saw) said the lowest one is that you remove something harmful from the road. So the prophet (saw) is connecting that faith to a very small thing that you would do in your life to remove something harmful from the road. Most people would not connect that to that La Ilaha Ilallah.
The prophet (saw) then says that there was a man that he saw strolling in Jannah because the only thing that he did was he saw something harmful in the road and he picked it up and he removed it. So that the path could be Ease for people and Allah (swt) eased the path of Jannah for him. It is not just that this person was walking on the side of the road or what and saw something harmful and removed it, it’s that that person connected it back to Allah subhana WA Ta’ala, he was intentional about what he was doing. He was purposeful about what he was doing. He made a mental and emotional, a spiritual connection to that act and that’s something special. That what takes a small deed and makes it a mountain in the sight of Allah subhana wa ta’ala because it’s not the size of the good deed that makes it accepted to Allah subhana wa ta’ala. It’s the heart that’s performing the good deed and making that connection to Allah (swt).
You have purpose; you do not belittle any of your good deeds because you realize that the one you’re doing those good deeds for is Allah. You’re connecting it to the creator.
Think about small good habits, a small good deed that is between you and Allah that people don’t expect of you but through it you seek Allah’s mercy and you make particularly a connection between that small good deed and your smallness in this world, your own vulnerability in this world and keep it up on a daily basis, as you don’t know which one of those that Allah (swt) is going to accept. Purpose is what takes the deeds that we do on a daily basis that are neutral in their nature and connect them to the Creator and that which is around us and enters us into Jannah- Sheikh Omar Suleiman
