Assalaamu alaykum! If one could go to a store and purchase 2 items besides the Qur'an and Sunnah that would help you to reach Jannah, what would you pick? :)

Perhaps we'll just stick to just one question for today:
If one could go to a store and purchase 2 items besides the Qur'an and Sunnah that would help you to reach Jannah, what would you pick?

P.S. By the word "items", you can pick things like qualities and attributes that would help you on your journey towards Jannah. Here are a few examples: Wisdom, Patience, Love, Prudence........well, you get the idea?

Well, Allah repeatedly say in the Qur'an: "make sabr (patience) and shalah as your helper"

So, I will pick patience aside from Qur'an and Sunnah.

But actually, when we implement Qur'an and sunnah in our lives, that would make us already complete (with patience).
So if we can live our lives according to Qur'an and sunnah and hold on to the rope of Allah, we do not need anything else.

I'm afraid the Qur'an and Sunnah will not suffice if we do not have certain qualities within us. Absence of those qualities would actually cause our ruin and lead us straight to Hell.

The question is what are two things we would need that would help us implement the Qur'an and Sunnah. You picked Patience. Could you pick out one more? Jazakallah khairan.

Eeman.

without it, you cannot implement Qur'an and sunnah.

You're so right! In that case, what quality helps us to acquire eeman? That would be the quality that you would pick from the store. Well, actually, two qualities. If you have these two qualities, then all the treasures of goodness ie Jannah would be in your hands, including Patience, Wisdom, Faith (Eeman).

Asalaamu alaikum, The answer to your question is in Surah Al Asr. Firstly one has to believe so iman is the pre-requisite before anything else. Then Allah tells us the two qualities that we need to succeed and all those who do not have these qualities is at a great loss. They are:

1. Uphold the truth. To do righteous deeds and to enjoin what is good and to refrain from that which is evil and forbid evil.

2. To be patient. Through trials, hardships, adversity and to rely upon Allah accepting his decree in all matters and striving to be closer to him no matter what we are going tgrough in life and knowing that at the end of it all if we remain patient then we will gain eternity of bliss and will be victorius.

It is said that if this was the only Surah in the Quran then it will suffice mankind in order to be able to gain closeness to Allah and eternal success.

And Allah knowd best in all matters

Walaykum salam, respected brother. Jazakallahu khair for your answer. Alhamdulillah. So I perceive the two things you would take would be 1. Truth and 2. Patience. Right?

Eeman has the supermacy. If you have perfect Eeman, you will be in Jannah insha Allah. And what is meant by Eeman? Eeman is the Love of Allah & His beloved Messenger (may Allah exalt his mention).

The Prophet, may peace & blessings of Allah be upon him, said, "None of you have iman until I am more beloved to him than his children, his parents and mankind altogether." In another version there is, "...than his family, his property and mankind altogether."

[Sahih Bukhari & Sahih Muslim]

So you better know where you stand,,,,Allah bless you.

I totally agree brother. But the question is what qualities would help us acquire this eeman. Love of Allah and His Messenger is certainly the highest of eeman, I think. But what I'm interested in is what will help us get to that level. I think it's pretty clear that eeman has to do with one's actions, so that actions reflect the faith that is in one's heart. Not acting upon knowledge is a sign of weak eeman.

(31:12) the first
and the second
(31:17) Son, establish Prayer, enjoin all that is good and forbid all that is evil, and endure with patience whatever affliction befalls you. Surely these have been emphatically enjoined.

this is the second:
patience.

let us now go back to 'shukr' shall we say if any just say AlhamduLiLaah.....of course yes Alahmd Lilaah but I think(and the best knowledge is with Allah)
that.....You give as a charity {to that extra you have} according to the teachings Wa bilwadien ihsaana, wa bi dhi kurba wa l yatama wa etc....
that is really Thanking Allah by deeds, and there then ...comes that first choice ....Faidha shakartani sa azidanakum.
how many do stereotype say AlhamduLillah but ............?

Ilm yakiin indu Llah wa alayhi Tawakalna wa ilayhi anabna wa ilayhi masiiir.
