Everything will be cut off! Except…

Abu Qataadah rahimahullaah reported that Allaah’s Messenger sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said:

“Among the good deeds that continue to benefit a believer after death are: a knowledge that he taught and disseminated, a righteous child who lived after him, a Qur’aan book that he left as inheritance a masjid that he built, a house that he built for the two wayfarers, a stream that he ran, or a charity that he gave from his wealth during his healthy lifetime so that it would reach him (in rewards) after death.”

[Ibn Majaah, and others, classified as Hasan by Al-Albani]

Therefore, we should be in a sincere rush to apply this hadith so that we can benefit from our deeds after we are dead – and we shall all die. We should take heed of this message and prepare for the hereafter starting from today. Let’s begin by:

1) Learning and teaching knowledge

2) A righteous child you leave behind who prays for you

3) A Qur’an that you have spread

4) Building a Masjed

5) Building a house for a wayfarer

6) Building a well of water (stream of water)

7) A charity you gave during your healthy times

Al-Mundhiree says,

“…the rewards of these things continue to reach him as long as they continue to exist.”

(‘Awn al-Ma’bud, 8:86)
