· Our dua is accepted only if:
o Our intentions are sincere
o Our heart is pure (free from sins and evils)
· Raise your hands at the time of every salah and ask Allah swt whatever you like
o As this is the best time for asking His mercy.
o He will answer if we call Him
o While fasting, remember the hunger and thirst of tomorrow in the Hereafter
· Give to charity
Ø Whenever we wake up or leave the house, give to charity
Ø Mostly, give to orphan charities
· Visit relatives – Allah will bestow His mercy on you in the Hereafter
Ø Even if its for a few minutes, especially those that you may have a bad relationship with.
o However, if you break your relationship with your relative in this month, Allah will keep you away from His mercy.
· Guard your tongues against unworthy words and improve your akhlaq (manners).
· Guard your eyes from scenes that are forbidden
Ø Dont look at the other sex with lust.
Ø You must look down if you know you are weak.
· Guard your ears from sounds that are forbidden
· Spend a longer time prostrating to Allah (SWT)
· Invite people for iftar, even if its for some dates and water
o Allah will forgive you your sins inshallah
THE REWARDS OF VOLUNTEERING
Volunteering not only works for those receiving help but also those who do different kinds of volunteering acts. Truth be told, when faced with the question of Why Is Volunteering Important; there are many reasons why it is beneficial to all concerned.
Firstly, when we volunteer our time for a good cause; the rewards we reap are far greater than any promotion we could get from work; or good grades we get from school.
People who volunteer can’t help but feel just a little bit more positive about life. When we see the dire straits of others; we feel lucky and blessed to have a better life.
Another reason on Why Is Volunteering Important is that we imbibe in others the spirit of generosity – of giving back to others; even strangers, all the good things we have received in life.
Volunteer is What Imam Hussein emulated, sacrifice was his path…

Imam Baqir (a.s.) says: One who sits quietly after each mandatory prayer and recites 3
times the following , Allah will pardon all his sins.
I seek forgiveness from the Lord (testifying) There is no God other than Him The Living
and the Everlasting Of Majesty and Splendour And I turn to Him In Repentence!
“Astaghfarallah allazi la ilaha illa huwal hayyal qayyumo zuljalal e wal ikraame wa aatube ilaihi”

Imam Jafar e Sadiq (a.s) has said that reciting the Tasbeeh of Fatima (a.s.) after every compulsory prayer is better than performing a thousand genuflections
Allaho Akbar (34 times)
ALhamdulillah (33 times)
Subhan Allah (33 times)

“Reciting the Qur’an from the pages of the Qur’an (meaning to look at it and recite it – not from memory), lightens the punishment of one’s mother and father, even if they are both disbelievers.”
Reference: Usulul Kafi, Volume 2, Page 613
Imam Sadiq (A.S.) has said:
“One who sends 10 salawat upon the Prophet and his Family, Allah and the angels send 100 salawat upon him, and the one who sends 100 salawat upon the Prophet and his Family, then Allah and the angels send 1000 salawat upon him.”
