Abu Hafsat

Ayat 46, Surat Kahfi Considered.

1 post in this topic

As-Salaam alaykum,

In Ayat 46 of Surat Kahfi of the Holy Qur'an, Allah Ta'ala says:--

  "Wealth and children are the embellishment of worldly life, and the good things that last

  (al-baqiyat-as-salihat) are greater with your Lord and greater in expectation."

  Material things are short-lived and temporary, but "the good things that last" will continue into the hereafter, and the hereafter is far better and everlasting. What are "the good things that last"?  The Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, told us what they are in a Hadith in which one of his companions, Abu Sa'id al-Khudri, may Allah be pleased with him, reported that the Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said:--

        "Make plenty of the 'good things that last (al-baqiyat-salihat)'. It was said: And what are

        they, O Messenger of Allah?"  He said: "TAKBIR (Saying: ALLAHU AKBAR); TAHLIL (Saying: LA-ILAHA ILLALLAH);

      TAHMID (Saying: ALHAMDULILLAH); and Saying: LA-HAWLA WALA QUWATA ILLA BILLAH."  [Bukhari, Muslim].

In view of this, we should include lots of reciting of the 'baqiyat salihat in our daily Zikr, when we come to remember Allah in the mornings and evenings.

Best Wishes.
