🔑8 keys to attaining barakah
1. Tilaawah of the Quran:
Allah has made the Quraan al Kareem a source of barakah, if we ponder over its meaning and we live our lives according to its teachings . And for this reason our beloved messenger ﷺ said about the home in which Quran is recited.The malaaikahs live in it, the shaithaans flee from it and it expands for the family and goodness increases in it.
2. Saying Bismillah and making the Zikr of Allah:
The messenger ﷺ said: if a man enters his home and he mentioned Allahs name upon his entrance and before he ate, Shaithaan says to his companions, there is no home nor food for you here.
From the means of attaining barakah in a home is to give sadaqah ……..especially secret sadaqah because it extinguishes the anger of Allah.
4. Maintaining family ties:
And indeed our messenger ﷺ has informed us that maintaining family ties, and observing good character…..increases our sustenance and our lives.
5. Waking up early:
It is mentioned in a HadithGive glad tidings to my ummah in the early parts of the day.
6. Establishing salaah on its fixed time:
And enjoin As-Salat (the prayer) on your family, and be patient in offering them[i.e. the Salat (prayers)].
7. Putting our trust in Allah as he should be trusted:
As is mentioned in a Hadith,If you trust Allah as he should be trusted , he will sustain you as he provides for the birds, they leave hungry in search for food and return full.
8. Seeking Repentance:
Making lots of Istighfaar.And Istighfaar on its own is a means of Increasing our sustenanceJust as Nabi ﷺ said:Whoever makes Istighfaar Allah will make a way out of every difficult situation for him,And he will ease his sorrow, and he will sustain him from where he perceives not.May Allah bless us with lots of barakah and contentment.
