Greatness of Mumin

The sign of a perfect Muslim is that he does not do any good deed for showing off but rather he carries out virtuous deeds only for seeking the will of Allah Almighty. Allah Almighty has said in the Holy Quran about those who show off and do not believe in Allah:

And those who spend their wealth to show off to the people, and do not believe in Allah nor the Last Day, and whoever has Shaytan as a companion, so what an evil companion he is. (Surah An-Nisa, Ayah 38)

A Muslim should not remind a person of the favours giving Sadakah he has done to him so that he Sadaqah receiver does not feel bad and the reward of the 'Sadaqah giver' does not get wasted either. Allah Almighty has stated:

O believers! Do not invalidate your charity by boasting of favours and by causing anguish. (Surah Al- Baqarah, Ayah 264)

A Muslim, before he departs this life, should spend in the path of Allah from what Allah Almighty has provided him with. It is a belief of a Muslim that the Day of Judgment will surely come and the Day of Judgment will be dreadful and terrifying. Wealth would not work for anybody. All worldly friendships will also go in vain. Even fathers will be getting rid of their sons on that day. No intercession will benefit the disbelievers nor will anyone be able to attain intercession for anybody as it happens in worldly manner. Only the chosen ones will have the privilege of interceding with the permission of Allah Almighty. Likewise, one will gain benefit from his wealth in Hereafter only in this way that he would have spent his wealth carrying out good deeds in the world. Regarding friendship, the friendship with pious people will benefit people in the Hereafter.

Allah Almighty has stated :

O Believers ! Spend in the path of Allah from what We have provided for you, before the arrival of that Day in which there is no trading, and for the disbelievers there would be no friendship nor intercession. And the disbelievers themselves are the unjust. (Surah Al-Baqarah, Ayah 254)

A Muslim should spend in the path of Allah Almighty from his lawful and pure earnings. Moreover, he should also spend from earth produces in the path of Allah Almighty (if it is Wajib as per Shariah). A Muslim should not give anything inferior and defective in the way of Allah because when he will give superior things in the way of Allah, he will deserve high-ranking reward.

A Muslim should be the one who, in all matters, should stand firm with justice and truth. While standing firm with truth, even if he or his close relatives suffer any loss, he should not care about it because Allah Almighty has commanded him to stand with justice and truth, not to follow the desires of his Nafs.

While carrying out the noble acts of preaching and serving Islam, a Muslim should not be afraid to sacrifice his life in the path of Allah. He should not indulge in the talks of hopelessness and despair regarding those who sacrifice their lives in the path of Allah Almighty but rather one should have strong eagerness for sacrificing his own life and wealth.
