For a Believer, the most coveted goal in life is to seek the good pleasure of Allah Almighty and Paradise. In order to accomplish this we must follow the Straight Path. Allah (SWT) clearly Guides us regarding this in the Holy Quran…….
"Say (O Muhammad): Come [and] I will recite what your Lord has prohibited you from: Join not anything in worship with Him; be good and dutiful to your parents; kill not your children because of poverty for I provide sustenance for you and for them; come not near to shameful acts whether committed openly or secretly, and kill not anyone whom Allah has forbidden, except for a just cause (according to Islamic law). This He has commanded you that you may understand. And come not near to the orphan's property, except to improve it, until he (or she) attains the age of full strength; and give full measure and full weight with justice. We burden not any person, but that which he can bear. And whenever you give your word (i.e. judge between men or give evidence, etc.), say the truth even if a near relative is concerned, and fulfill the Covenant of Allah. This He commands you, that you may remember. And verily, this is My Straight Path, so follow it, and follow not (other) paths, for they will separate you away from His Path. This He has ordained for you that you may become Al-Muttaqun (the pious)." (The Holy Quran, Al-An'aam 6: 151-153)
These three verses teach us many things.....We should keep reminding ourselves and others about these things and not forget to implement them in our lives.
