Means of attaining barakah in our homes

 

*Barakah* a word we here often but sadly we have lost it in our homes, so we find no barakah in time, nor in sustenance or our wealth and children, so what then is the key to barakah.

*🔑There are 8 keys to attaining barakah* :

*1-Tilaawah of the Quraan *:
‎قال الله تعالى
‎(وهذا كتاب أنزلناه مبارك)

Allah has made the Quraan al Kareem a source of barakah, if we ponder over its meaning and we live our lives according to its teachings . And for this reason our beloved messenger ﷺ said about the home in which Quraan is recited.
‎ (تسكنه الملائكة تهجره الشياطين ويتسع بأهله ويكثر خيره).
The malaaikahs live in it, the shaithaans flee from it and it expands for the family and goodness increases in it.

‎*2-البسملة وذكر الله*:
*Saying bismillah and making the zikr of Allah*
‎قال رسول الله صل الله عليه وسلم
‎إذا دخل الرجل بيته فذكر الله تعالى عند دخوله وعند طعامه، قال الشيطان لأصحابه لا مبيت ولا عشاء
The messenger ﷺ said: if a man enters his home and he mentioned Allahs name upon his entrance and before he ate, Shaithaan says to his companions, there is no home nor food for you here.

‎*3-الصدقة*:
*Sadaqah*
From the means of attaining barakah in a home is to give sadaqah ……..especially secret sadaqah because it extinguishes the anger of Allah.

‎*4-صلة الرحم*:
*Maintaining family ties*
And indeed our messenger ﷺ has informed us that maintaining family ties, and observing good character…..
increases our sustenance and our lives

5-*Waking up early to search for your rizq*
‎جاء في الحديث (بورك لأمتي في بكورها) أي الخروج لطلب الرزق باكرا” .
It is mentioned in a Hadith
( Give glad tidings to my ummah in the early parts of the day)
Which means – those who leave their homes to search for their rizq in the early parts of the morning.

‎*6-إقامة الصلاة*:
*Establishing salaah on its fixed time is a means of attaining barakah*
‎، قال الله تعالى
‎«وأمر أهلك بالصلاة واصطبر عليها لا نسألك رزقا “نحن نرزقك والعاقبة للتقوى»

And enjoin As-Salat (the prayer) on your family, and be patient in offering them
[i.e. the Salat (prayers)].
We ask not of you a provision , We provide for you. And the good end (i.e. Paradise) is for the Muttaqun .

‎*7-التوكل على الله حق توكله* :
*Putting our trust in Allah as he should be trusted*

As is mentioned in a Hadith
‎«لو توكلتم على الله حق توكله لرزقكم كما يرزق الطير، تغدو خماصا”وتروح بطانا”»
If you trust Allah as he should be trusted , he will sustain you as he provides for the birds, they leave hungry in search for food and return full.

‎*8-الاستغفار*:
*Seeking Repentance*
Making lots of Istighfaar.

‎والاستغفار بحد ذاته مصدر للرزق ،
And Istighfaar on its own is a means of Increasing our sustenance

‎كما قال نبينا صلى الله عليه وسلم
Just as Nabi ﷺ said:
Whoever makes Istighfaar Allah will make a way out of every difficult situation for him,
And he will ease his sorrow, and he will sustain him from where he perceives not.
‎«من لزم الاستغفار جعل الله له من كل ضيق مخرجا ” ومن كل هم فرجا” ورزقه من حيث لا يحتسب»

‎متعنا الله وإيّاكم بالبركة والرضا
May Allah bless us with lots of barakah and contentment.
