We chase it all - gold, money, house, cars. Once we get it, we aren't content and want more so we can fill that emptiness in our hearts. But that emptiness was made by Allah, only to be be filled by loving Allah. If that doesn't happen, we would remain feeling that little bit empty.
“Kindness is a mark of faith, and whoever is not kind has no faith.” (Muslim)
There are some things we could do without even thinking, that could be our ticket to Jannah.
1) Removing obstacles from the way: can you believe that Islamic teachings extend even to clearing an obstacle from a path? Yes, it is true. The Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) taught us that one of the traits of a true believer is that they remove obstacles and harmful things from a public path or street.
2) Being kind to animals: people asked the Prophet (pbuh), 'are we given a reward for kindness to animals?' He said, 'You shall be rewarded for a kindness to any living thing.' So the next time you're walking on the street, avoid stepping on insects and don't scare the birds. Perhaps put out water in the garden for birds or other animals to drink.
3) Charity: "There is a sadaqa(charity) due on every Muslim; if he cannot give because he has no money, let him work then he can support himself and give charity; if he is unable to work, then let him help someone in need of his help; if he does not do that, let him adjoin good; if he does not do that, then he should not do evil or harm others: it will be written for him as a sadaqa." (Ahmad, Bukhari and Muslim)
Note: A good action that is done purely for show off earns no reward from Allah (swt). What pleases Him and earns His generous reward is an action that is pure of selfish interest. What's even better is if these small actions become part of our daily lives... Infinite good deeds!
