|(1) Islaamic History||Qaaroon|
|Amongst the most prominent people to oppose Hadhrat Moosa (AS) was his very own cousin Qaaroon. Allaah had given Qaaroon so much wealth that just the keys to his treasures would tire a group of strong men. Qaaroon was intoxicated with the love of his wealth and forgot about Allaah. Hadhrat Moosa (AS) advised him not be boastful and to use his wealth to earn his Aakhirah by spending in avenues that please Allaah. However, Qaaroon maintained that he had earned his wealth and that none had a share in it. When he grew very haughty, he even made efforts to disgrace Hadhrat Moosa (AS). The day came when Allaah caused the ground to swallow him up together with his palace and all his wealth. The people who witnessed this punishment took a lesson from this and turned closer to Allaah.
|(2) Rasulullaah (SAW)’s Miracle||Restoring speech|
|A boy who had been unable to speak since birth was brought to Rasulullaah (SAW). “At least tell me who I am?” Rasulullaah (SAW) asked him. The boy immediately replied, “You are the Rasool of Allaah.” From that day onwards, he was always able to speak.
|(3) A Fardh||Believing in the power of Allaah|
|Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “Allaah is not such that anything in the heavens and the earth can defeat him. He is the All Knowing, Powerful”.
[ Surah Faatir, verse 44]
Nothing is beyond the power and control of Allaah. It is Fardh (obligatory) to believe that Allaah has this tremendous power.
|(4) A Du’aa from the Qur’aan and Rasulullaah (SAW)||The Du’aa for pious children|
|The following Du’aa should be recited for pious children:
رَبِّ هَبْ لِيْ مِنَ الصَّالِحِيْنَ
TRANSLATION: O my Rabb! Grant me pious children.
[Surah Saafaat, verse 100]
|(5) A Nafl||Memorising 40 Ahadeeth|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “Whoever from my Ummah memorises 40 Ahadeeth through which Allaah grants him benefit will be told to enter Jannah from whichever gate he desires.”
