One of the Islamic principles that we should understand is that any legitimate worldly affair turns to be an act of obedience to Allah, may He be glorified and exalted, and a reason for His reward if one did it sincerely for the sake of Allah out of seeking his reward even if this deed is related to the worldly life like eating or drinking or having sexual relationship with one`s wife.

When the slave reaches the complete faith, he will not fear anyone except Allah, he submits only to the truth legislated by the Creator, he does not refrain from supporting the truth with the sword or the tongue. He firmly believes in the saying of the Messenger of Allah ( may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him ) “And remember that if all the people gather to benefit you, they will not be able to benefit you except that which Allah had foreordained (for you); and if all of them gather to do harm to you, they will not be able to afflict you with anything other than that which Allah had pre-destined against you”. [At- Tirmidhi].
Our children are the comfort of our eyes, perhaps they will be our intermediaries before Allah on the Day of Judgment, they are an extension of our good deeds after death. They are to complete what we started in our lives. Therefore, we have to raise them up properly so that we care about their physical, spiritual and mental education, and instill in them the love of Allah and His Messenger. The Prophet ( may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) commanded us to do so in many hadiths.

The migration from Mecca to Madina was obligatory upon every Muslim capable of its expenses and consequences. Allah opened its door after the second pledge of alligiance of the Ansar, this was about thirteen years after the mission of the Prophet Muhammad may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him. The Muslims were commanded to migrate to Madina until after the conquest of Mecca when the Messenger of Allah, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said: “There is no emigration (after the conquest of Makkah), but only Jihad (striving in the path of Allah) and some intention. So when you are summoned to go forth (for Jihad), go forth.”
Abu Dhar al-Ghaffari ( may Allah be pleased with him ) asked the Prophet ( may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him ) a lot about the best of the deeds in the sight of Allah and the deeds to be given priority in case the deeds are equal. The Prophet ( may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him ) responded to him with all pleasure, because he loved him very much since he strived to do all the good deeds. The Prophet ( may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him ) was the best role model and the best companion in the residence and traveling to his companions.

The Prophet ( may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him ) taught his companions how to take advantage of their share from the worldly life without extravagance, to enjoy the good things in a way that does not go beyond the level of moderation.

The Prophet ( may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him ) was keen on contradicting the Jews, the Christians and other people of infidelity and misguidance in their worship and customs, especially those to which they give a religious dye. He used to warn strongly his companions and those who come after them, from entertaining themselves with the games, kinds of amusement and the rituals in which they show their love and glorification to their prophets, and the righteous people during the festivals in partiqular.
The companions of the Prophet ( may Allah be pleased with them ) consulted him in all their affairs if they did not find a text from the Book of Allah or a clear Hadith on his tongue – may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him – so that he shows them the right thing to do. For example one may consult the Messenger of Allah concerning travelling or marriage so that he advises him.
The love for the sake of Allah the Almighty is not attained except to those whose hearts are pure, those who are praised by people, those who are keen to learn the rules of Islam, and those whose natural inclination is free from the suspecions.

The believer is the one who knows the truth and knows its people.

The people of falsehood will not overpower those who follow the truth; the people of truth are supported by Allah in every place and time, even if they are hindered by some obstacles in their way to realize the victory.
