Good Deeds

By: Syed Abid Ali

A good deed is any act that will please Allah (Sub'hanahu wa Ta'ala) and his Messenger Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu 'alayhi wa Salaam). These are some of the good deeds.

A good deed is to learn or teach people how to read the Quran. This deed will make Allah (Sub'hanahu wa Ta'ala) really happy. Also if you teach someone about it, it is a good deed too. Going to Madrasa and learning more about Islam is really good. By doing all this you are not only helping others, you are helping yourself by doing a good deed that makes Allah (Sub'hanahu wa Ta'ala) happy and if you make Allah (Sub'hanahu wa Ta'ala) happy that is a great reward.

Helping your parents is a good deed. You can help your parents by cleaning the house, don't watch too much T.V, study well in school, wash the dishes or anything that will make them happy and not mad.

Being kind to your servants is a good deed. If anyone is dying for water even if it is an animal you should give water. Giving money or anything that can help the poor is a good deed. If you do any of these deeds you will get a reward and dua from whoever you helped.

If you avoid evil thoughts and evil deeds then you will start doing good deeds by doing this. If you think of good thoughts then you'll do good deeds. This will make you a clean Muslim that avoids evil stuff.

Praying Salah five times a day is a good deed. If you do zikr, dua or become familiar to these it is a good deed too. These good deeds will help you be a better Muslim.

Another good deed is to respect your elders. You could do that by speaking to them in a low voice, listen to them and help them out in any way you can. If they tell you to do something, do it. When you help your elders they will reward you by making dua for you. So be good to your elders.

If you're good to your teachers it is also a good deed. You can be good to them by not talking in class, help them by cooperating in class, studying hard or anything that will make them happy. Be good to your friends and help them out with their problems. Another good deed is to help your neighbours in their problems or difficulties so Allah will save you from your problems and difficulties.

If you do good deeds it will make your heart bigger, cleaner and filled with Noor. If your heart is filled with Noor you'll be a Mu'min and Inshallah you will enter Paradise.
