Allah Most High said in the Qur’an, in Surah Ali-Imran (which means):
“And their Lord responded to them, ‘Never will I allow to be lost the deeds of [anyone] among you, whether male or female…” [Al-Quran, surah Ali-Imran, verse 195].
From the mercy of Allah Most High, is that He will never forget what we do. Whatever we do for His sake raises our station with Him and it pleases Allah Most High, and the best way to please Him is by doing good by His creation. Allah said at the end of Surah Al-‘Ankabut (which means):
“And those who strive for Us – We will surely guide them to Our ways. And indeed, Allah is with the doers of good. (muhsineen).” [Al-Quran, surah al-‘Ankabut, verse 69].
The doers of good are those who not only do good but also those who love, enjoy and perfect all that is good. We say to ourselves and to those whom we love, “keep doing good and enjoy it.” Gravitate from one good to the next. Whatever you do for the creation of Allah Most High, you are in actuality, doing it for Allah Most High, as He said in a Hadith Qudsi (which means):
I was sick, and you did not visit me, I was hungry and you do not feed me, and I was oppressed and you did not help Me. They will say: ‘How is that possible?’ So-and-so was sick and you did not visit them, so-and-so was hungry and you did not feed them, and so-and-so was oppressed and you did not help them!”
Thus, it is a great honor for us to do something for others, and this is how Allah Most High raises our station.
Allah Most High will never forget the good that you offered to someone, the anxiety of someone you helped to ease, the happiness you gave to someone who was broken and tearful, the smile you shone in someone’s face, and your accompaniment of someone lonely! But, when you feel you cannot help, tell them how much you wish you could help them, and remind them of the One who can help them and Who is always watching them!
Let us live this life by the principle of spreading goodness (ihsan). Even when we do not get goodness from people, let us still choose goodness, because Allah Most High loves the doers of good.
May your days and nights be those of goodness, and may Allah Most High facilitate for us His Divine Assistance to implement it in all that we do.
