Lessons from Sūrah 27 – Sūrat An-Naml
Be thankful to Allāh just like Sulaymān عليه السلام was.
The mark of a person working for Allāh is that he/she cannot be tempted away from it through wealth.
Read the du‘ā of Sulaymān عليه السلام regularly:
رَبِّ أَوْزِعْنِي أَنْ أَشْكُرَ نِعْمَتَكَ الَّتِي أَنْعَمْتَ عَلَيَّ وَعَلَى وَالِدَيَّ وَأَنْ أَعْمَلَ صَالِحًا تَرْضَاهُ وَأَدْخِلْنِي بِرَحْمَتِكَ فِي عِبَادِكَ الصَّالِحِينَ (٢٧: ١٩)
'O My Rabb! Enable me to become grateful to Your favour that you have bestowed on me and on my parents, and to do good deeds that You like, and admit me, with Your mercy, among Your righteous servants.’
Start off letters/correspondence with بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
Whoever is grateful to Allāh, will only benefit themselves; whoever is ungrateful, Allāh is independent of their gratitude.
Allāh is the one who answers the du‘ā of those who are helpless.
Allāh knows what the hearts conceal and what they expose.
Allāh has perfected everything.
