What Allah requires His slaves to do is easy. He does not want hardship to come to those striving to worship Him. He said, what translated means: "And strive hard in Allah's cause as you ought to strive (with sincerity). He has chosen you (to convey Islam), and has not laid upon you in religion any hardship, it is the religion of your father Abraham (Islam). It is He (Allah) who has named you Muslims both before and in this (the Quran), that the Messenger (Mohammad) may be a witness over you and you be witnesses over mankind. So offer prayer perfectly, give Zakat (compulsory charity), and hold fast to Allah, He is your Lord, what an excellent Lord and what an excellent helper!" [22:78]

If Allah brings you to it, He will bring you through it.

Happy moments, praise Allah.

Difficult moments, seek Allah.

Quiet moments, worship Allah.

Painful moments, trust Allah.

Every moment, thank Allah.

Volume 1, Book 3, Number 100:
Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Amr bin Al' As:
I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "Allah does not take away the knowledge, by taking it away from (the hearts of) the people, but takes it away by the death of the religious learned men till when none of the (religious learned men) remains, people will take as their leaders ignorant persons who when consulted will give their verdict without knowledge. So they will go astray and will lead the people astray."

Surat Name Al Tauba Ayaat No. 53 Para No.10
O Muhammad tell these people whether they do good deeds happily or unhappily GOD would not accept their virtues meaning Neykkian because they are folk who are disobedient to God’s Commandments”
Where there is true faith, there is obedience of GOD.
Here God want to remind human beings that for hereafter He never accepts virtues- good deeds- Neykkian done verbally, physically, materially and above all DUA of those who are disobedient to God’s Hookmaats which means God’s given commandments in the Holy Book. Yes as for rewards of good deeds done by these disobedient people, God would compensate return them in this life but not in hereafter that IS what we must understand here.

Surat Name AL Anaam, Ayaat No.20, Para No. 7
God says in this verse that signs of His righteous people are those who recognized the verses of God’s Holy Book as if they recognized their own sons easily from distance”

Sahih al Bukhari Volume 9, Book 92, Number 382:
Narrated 'Abdullah:
The best talk (speech) is Allah's Book 'Quran), and the best way is the way of Muhammad, and the worst matters are the heresies (those new things which are introduced into the religion); and whatever you have been promised will surely come to pass, and you cannot escape (it).

"Tips to Maintain Concentration in Salaah"

1. Before standing up for Prayer, try to deal with all the minor urgent matters which demand your attention. If you are pressed by hunger, eat first; if you are pressed to attend to the call of nature, relieve yourself; if you are the parent of an infant, feed him or her, or keep him or her busy.

2. Perform your wudu' (ablution) well, paying due care and attention.

3. Approach the Prayer with zest and passion as if it is the most important task in your life. Actually the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) taught us that we could do nothing in this world that could ever surpass Prayer in merit and excellence.

4. Visualize that in your Prayer you are going to have a special audience with Allah, Lord of the worlds, and that you are enjoying a direct communion with Him? This in fact is true.

5. Think of the Prayer you are performing as if it were the last Prayer of your life. In fact, it could very well be the last one, since no one is given a guarantee that he would live to perform another Prayer.

6. Picture the scene of the Last Day when people will be lined up into two groups, one destined for Heaven, and another for Hell, and ask yourself where you would be placed.

7. Focus your mind on what you are reading in your Prayer.

8. If, in spite of your best efforts, your mind is still wandering, seek refuge in Allah and bring your mind back to Prayer.

9. Pray to Allah and beg Him to grant you true the joy of concentrating in your Prayer and protection against the wanderings of your mind.
