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.

*๐Ÿ”‘There are 8 keys to attaining barakah* :

*1-Tilaawah of the Quraan *:
โ€Žู‚ุงู„ ุงู„ู„ู‡ ุชุนุงู„ู‰
โ€Ž(ูˆู‡ุฐุง ูƒุชุงุจ ุฃู†ุฒู„ู†ุงู‡ ู…ุจุงุฑูƒ)

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 ๏ทบ said about the home in which Quraan is recited.
โ€Ž (ุชุณูƒู†ู‡ ุงู„ู…ู„ุงุฆูƒุฉ ุชู‡ุฌุฑู‡ ุงู„ุดูŠุงุทูŠู† ูˆูŠุชุณุน ุจุฃู‡ู„ู‡ ูˆูŠูƒุซุฑ ุฎูŠุฑู‡).
The malaaikahs live in it, the shaithaans flee from it and it expands for the family and goodness increases in it.

โ€Ž*2-ุงู„ุจุณู…ู„ุฉ ูˆุฐูƒุฑ ุงู„ู„ู‡*:
*Saying bismillah and making the zikr of Allah*
โ€Žู‚ุงู„ ุฑุณูˆู„ ุงู„ู„ู‡ ุตู„ ุงู„ู„ู‡ ุนู„ูŠู‡ ูˆุณู„ู…
โ€Žุฅุฐุง ุฏุฎู„ ุงู„ุฑุฌู„ ุจูŠุชู‡ ูุฐูƒุฑ ุงู„ู„ู‡ ุชุนุงู„ู‰ ุนู†ุฏ ุฏุฎูˆู„ู‡ ูˆุนู†ุฏ ุทุนุงู…ู‡ุŒ ู‚ุงู„ ุงู„ุดูŠุทุงู† ู„ุฃุตุญุงุจู‡ ู„ุง ู…ุจูŠุช ูˆู„ุง ุนุดุงุก
The messenger ๏ทบ 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.

From the means of attaining barakah in a home is to give sadaqah ……..especially secret sadaqah because it extinguishes the anger of Allah.

โ€Ž*4-ุตู„ุฉ ุงู„ุฑุญู…*:
*Maintaining family ties*
And indeed our messenger ๏ทบ 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*
โ€Žุฌุงุก ููŠ ุงู„ุญุฏูŠุซ (ุจูˆุฑูƒ ู„ุฃู…ุชูŠ ููŠ ุจูƒูˆุฑู‡ุง) ุฃูŠ ุงู„ุฎุฑูˆุฌ ู„ุทู„ุจ ุงู„ุฑุฒู‚ ุจุงูƒุฑุง” .
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.

โ€Ž*6-ุฅู‚ุงู…ุฉ ุงู„ุตู„ุงุฉ*:
*Establishing salaah on its fixed time is a means of attaining barakah*
โ€ŽุŒ ู‚ุงู„ ุงู„ู„ู‡ ุชุนุงู„ู‰
โ€Žยซูˆุฃู…ุฑ ุฃู‡ู„ูƒ ุจุงู„ุตู„ุงุฉ ูˆุงุตุทุจุฑ ุนู„ูŠู‡ุง ู„ุง ู†ุณุฃู„ูƒ ุฑุฒู‚ุง “ู†ุญู† ู†ุฑุฒู‚ูƒ ูˆุงู„ุนุงู‚ุจุฉ ู„ู„ุชู‚ูˆู‰ยป

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 .

โ€Ž*7-ุงู„ุชูˆูƒู„ ุนู„ู‰ ุงู„ู„ู‡ ุญู‚ ุชูˆูƒู„ู‡* :
*Putting our trust in Allah as he should be trusted*

As is mentioned in a Hadith
โ€Žยซู„ูˆ ุชูˆูƒู„ุชู… ุนู„ู‰ ุงู„ู„ู‡ ุญู‚ ุชูˆูƒู„ู‡ ู„ุฑุฒู‚ูƒู… ูƒู…ุง ูŠุฑุฒู‚ ุงู„ุทูŠุฑุŒ ุชุบุฏูˆ ุฎู…ุงุตุง”ูˆุชุฑูˆุญ ุจุทุงู†ุง”ยป
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.

*Seeking Repentance*
Making lots of Istighfaar.

โ€Žูˆุงู„ุงุณุชุบูุงุฑ ุจุญุฏ ุฐุงุชู‡ ู…ุตุฏุฑ ู„ู„ุฑุฒู‚ ุŒ
And Istighfaar on its own is a means of Increasing our sustenance

โ€Žูƒู…ุง ู‚ุงู„ ู†ุจูŠู†ุง ุตู„ู‰ ุงู„ู„ู‡ ุนู„ูŠู‡ ูˆุณู„ู…
Just as Nabi ๏ทบ 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.
โ€Žยซู…ู† ู„ุฒู… ุงู„ุงุณุชุบูุงุฑ ุฌุนู„ ุงู„ู„ู‡ ู„ู‡ ู…ู† ูƒู„ ุถูŠู‚ ู…ุฎุฑุฌุง ” ูˆู…ู† ูƒู„ ู‡ู… ูุฑุฌุง” ูˆุฑุฒู‚ู‡ ู…ู† ุญูŠุซ ู„ุง ูŠุญุชุณุจยป

โ€Žู…ุชุนู†ุง ุงู„ู„ู‡ ูˆุฅูŠู‘ุงูƒู… ุจุงู„ุจุฑูƒุฉ ูˆุงู„ุฑุถุง
May Allah bless us with lots of barakah and contentment.
