Al A’laa 87:9

Increase in the remembrance of Allah, praising Him, glorifying Him, declaring His Oneness and His Might and Majesty. Fast in these nine days and especially on the Day of Arafah. Pray on time. Increase in voluntary acts of worship, for servants draw near to Allah, through their voluntary deeds, until Allah becomes pleased with them. Increase in the recitation of the Quran, its reflection and its application. Give in charity. Join the ties of kinship. Spread goodness and be in the service of others. Repent, and seek the forgiveness of Allah. Supplicate plenty, for Allah is more plentiful (in responding).

So remind, in case the reminder benefits.

Surat al-A’laa (The Most High 87:9)

Indeed those who believe and do good…

be it male or female (4:124), Allah will guide them because of their faith (10:9), answer their prayers and increase for them from His bounty (42:26). Allah will certainly absolve them of their sins (29:7) and admit them among the righteous (29:9). They are the best of creation (98:7) and will have the highest of ranks (20:75). Allah will bestow for them affection (19:96) and admit them into His Mercy. For them is forgiveness, a generous provision and a great, never-ending reward (5:9; 22:50; 34:4; 3:57; 18:2; 35:7; 41:8, 95:6). Their efforts will not be denied nor discounted (21:94), and they will not fear injustice nor deprivation (20:112). That is the absolute triumph (45:30).

Joy awaits them and an excellent place of return (13:29). Paradise (7:42). Lofty dwellings with cool shade, flowing rivers, as entertainment and accommodation (4:57; 10:9; 18:107; 22:14; 22:56; 29:58; 31:8; 47:12). For them is whatever they wish for (42:22). They will have pure spouses, and be adorned with bracelets of gold and pearl, and their garments will be of silk (4:57; 22:23). They will abide therein, forever (2:25; 7:42; 2:82; 4:122). Indeed, all these, for those who have believed and done good.

Removed from their hearts is any bitterness or ill feeling, and they will say, “All praise and thanks be to Allah, who has guided us to this. Had Allah not guided us, we would never have found the way.” (7:43)

The Straight Path is Wide

Abu Hurayrah narrates that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: “The one who eats and is grateful has the same station as the one who fasts and is patient.” (at-Tirmidhi 2486)

Anas bin Malik narrated that: the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: “Whoever prays Fajr in congregation, then sits remembering Allah until the sun has risen, then he prays two Rak’ah, then for him is the reward like that of a Hajj and Umrah.” He said: “The Messenger of Allah said: ‘Complete, complete, complete.'” (at-Tirmidhi 586)

Abu Hurayrah reported: The poor came to the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) and said: “Oh, Messenger of Allah, the wealthy have gone with the highest ranks and lasting bliss. They pray like us and fast as we do. They have more money by which they perform the Hajj, and `Umra; fight and struggle in Allah’s Cause and give in charity.” The Messenger of Allah said, “Shall I not teach you something with which if you acted you would catch up with those who have surpassed you? Nobody would overtake you and you would be better than the people amongst whom you live except those who would do the same. Say Subhanal-lah (Allah is free from imperfection), Al hamdulil-lah (Praise be to Allah), and Allahu Akbar (Allah is Greatest) thirty-three times after every (obligatory) prayer.” (al-Bukhari 843)
