Bismillah – In the name of ALLAH
A Muslim whenever s/he intends to do a task, s/he begins it with a Dua. The best way for a Muslim is to begin everything with Bismillah, i.e. in the name of ALLAH. If s/he intends to do something, s/he should say “In sha ALLAH” meaning “ALLAH willing”. My Mom always says – “Bismillah ki barkat, kabhi na hogi harkat” meaning “If you start doing something with Bismillah, you will never face any problem!”
Always do only good things and Dua
Obviously I am only meaning good things. Everyone should always strive to do only good things in life. One should not even think about bad things or doing them. But this is easier said than done. For Satan always strives to deviate us from the path of good and doing it. But if one strives hard enough, s/he can easily defeat Satan.
A Dua for nearly everything!
In Islam, there are numerous Duas. There is probably a Dua for nearly every task. And what better way to remember ALLAH. This beautiful verse sums it all, “Who remember Allah while standing or sitting or [lying] on their sides and give thought to the creation of the heavens and the earth, [saying], “Our Lord, You did not create this aimlessly; exalted are You [above such a thing]; then protect us from the punishment of the Fire.”
Let us strive to please the creator, not the creation/s!
We always think of pleasing people. And fall in the trap of Satan. For one can never please everyone. But on the other hand, if one strives to please ALLAH, one never fails. I ask ALLAH to guide me and everyone else out there to keep me steadfast on the path of Siratul Mustaqeem (the straight path to success). Ameen. Summa ameen. Please pray for me and my family. Your Duas are badly needed!
Some more Duas
I can post more Duas. Instead, I am posting links to few websites where you will find the best Duas. Hope you practice and learn them. In sha ALLAH.
