A First-Class Muslimah

Bismillahir rahmaanir rahiim...

I am a muslimah. But I don't want to be just an ordinary muslimah. I wish to be a First-Class Muslimah. Are you with me? Let us screen the tips (below) together:


1) Never left solah
From Abu Hurairah ra, the Prophet saw says: “Verily, the first practice of a man brought to account on the Judgement Day is his prayer (solah).” (Narrated by Abu Daud and al-Thirmidzi) and
“Successful indeed are the believers, who are humble in their prayers.” (Surah Al-Mu’minun:1-2)

2) Recite the Quran (daily)
Prophet Muhammad pbuh says: “Educate your children with three things: to love your Prophet; loving the ahlul bait; and read the Koran because those who preserve the Koran is in Allah’s protection on the day when there is no protection other than His protection, they are with His prophets and holy people." (Narrated by at-Thabrani).

3) Cover the aurah
“And say to the faithful women to lower their gazes, and to guard their private parts, and not to display their adornment except what is apparent of it, and to extend their headcoverings (khimars) to cover their bosoms (jaybs), and not to display their adornment except to their husbands, or their fathers, or their husband's fathers, or their sons, or their husband's sons, or their brothers, or their brothers' sons, or their sisters' sons, or their womenfolk, or what their right hands rule (slaves), or the followers from the men who do not feel sexual desire, or the small children to whom the nakedness of women is not apparent, and not to strike their feet (on the ground) so as to make known what they hide of their adornments. And turn in repentance to Allah together, O you the faithful, in order that you are successful." (Surah An-Nur:31)

4) Be Patient
Allah Almighty says, “But none is granted it except those who are patient, and none is granted it except one having a great portion [of good]." (Surah Fussilat: 35)

5) High Morals (well-mannered)
The Prophet saw says: “Should you improve morals and to be more in silent, by myself and Him, may all creatures emulate what both.” (Narrated by Abu Ya'ala)

6) Respect the elders
“And your Lord has decreed that you not worship except Him, and to parents, good treatment. Whether one or both of them reach old age [while] with you, say not to them [so much as], "uff," and do not repel them but speak to them a noble word. And lower to them the wing of humility out of mercy and say, `My Lord, have mercy upon them as they brought me up [when I was] small.’" (Surah al-Israa’:23 and 24)

7) Have strong identity
“Do not be a ' yes man’ who often said: “If good people are around me, so I would be good, but if they do wrong, I am all be wrong.” Should you set the soul and your stand point so if a good man, you are good with them, but if they are bad, then you will not be bad and wrong (as them).”(Narrated by Tirmidzi)

8) Generous
“….And whoever is protected from the stinginess of his soul - it is those who will be the successful.” (Surah al-Hashr:9)

9) Remain on a right course (Istiqamah)
“Indeed, those who have said, "Our Lord is Allah " and then remained on a right course - the angels will descend upon them, [saying], "Do not fear and do not grieve but receive good tidings of Paradise, which you were promised.” (Surah Fussilat:30)

10) Aware of being drifted away by non useful things
“Indeed, those who go astray from the way of Allah will have a severe punishment for having forgotten the Day of Account.” (Surah Sad:26)
