Whoever observes fast for a day in the way of Allah

fasting a day - 70 years from Hellfire

Abu Sa’eed al Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) reported Allah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه و سلم) as saying:

Every servant of Allah who observes fast for a day in the way of Allah, Allah would remove, because of this day, his face farther from the Fire (of Hell) to the extent of seventy years’ distance.

[Saheeh Muslim]

Indeed the continuous charity can possibly discontinue ,the righteous son may pass away but ..

“If the son of Adam dies, his actions cease except 3: A continuous charity, or knowledge which people benefit from, or a righteous son who supplicates for him” (Saheeh Muslim) Sheikh Saleh bin Al Fowzan commented: I heard Sheikh Muhammad bin Ibraheem رحمه الله mention during a lecture that he delivered in the College of Shari’ah (in Riyadh): Indeed the continuous charity can possibly discontinue (due to funds depleting, etc.), and the righteous son may pass away. As for beneficial knowledge, its benefit will continue and not cease, and the person will continue to gain reward (after his death). This is certainly one of the reasons why knowledge is more superior to other righteous deeds.

Great Reward of having many Good Intentions while performing a Good Deed

From Ameer-ul-Mu’mineen Abu Hafs Umar bin Al-Khattab, who said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- say:

” إنَّمَا الْأَعْمَالُ بِالنِّيَّاتِ، وَإِنَّمَا لِكُلِّ امْرِئٍ مَا نَوَى”.
‘Indeed actions are but by intentions and every man shall have that which he intended.’
[Collected by Bukhari and Muslim]

Having a great regard for intentions was the transactions of the hearts of the Companions Radhi Allaahu anhum and those who about Allaah and the scholars who raise the people. Indeed they would perform one action and they would have many intentions for that action, so that they could gain great rewards for themselves with every intention.

Each of these three has a guarantee with Allâh

Abu Umaamah (radiya Allaahu ‘anh) related that the Prophet (sall Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said : “Each of [the following] three has a guarantee with Allâh – that if he lives, he is taken care of , and if he dies, he will enter Paradise:  One who enters his house with ‘Salaam’ has a guarantee with Allâh ‘Azza Wa-Jall (The Most Mighty and Exalted); One who goes out to the Masjid has a guarantee with Allâh; and One who geos out in the way of Allâh has a guarantee with Allâh.”   [4] Al-Adab Al-Mufrad (1094). Al-Albaanee said, “Saheeh.”

Your position in Paradise is determined by the amount of Qur'aan you memorize

‘Abdullaah ibn ‘Amr ibn Al-‘Aas heard the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhe wa sallam) saying:

“It will be said to the companion of the Qur’aan: Read and elevate(up through the levels of the Paradise) and beautify your voice as you used to do when you were in the dunyaa! For verily, your position in the Paradise will be at the last verse you recite!”

# Merits of Waiting for Salah (Prayer) in the Masjid

Merits of Waiting for Salah (Prayer) in the Masjid

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said, “Everyone among you will be deemed to be occupied in Salat (prayer) constantly so long as Salat (the prayer) detains him (from worldly concerns), and nothing prevents him from returning to his family but Salat.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Commentary: This Hadith tells us the merits of waiting for Salat. As long as a person sits in mosque waiting for Salat, all his time is reckoned as being in the state of Salat and so eligible for the same reward.

Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Once the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) delayed the night prayer (`Isha’) till midnight. He (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) turned to us after Salat (prayer) and said, “The people slept after performing their Salat, but you who waited, will be accounted as engaged in Salat throughout the period of your waiting.”
[Al-Bukhari].
