Never underestimate the blessings of doing good, no matter how small it may seem.

 Good deeds

What exactly are good deeds (as-salihat)? I know some but maybe not all of them.
Praise be to Allaah.  

Good deeds are those which are in accordance with sharee’ah, and which are done sincerely for the sake of Allaah. Shaykh al-Islam [Ibn Taymiyah] defined ‘ibaadah (worship) as “a general term which includes all that Allaah loves and is pleased with, be it words or deeds, both inward and outward; these are of many kinds and we cannot list them, let alone enumerate them, but we will mention some of them: 

1.     Belief in Allaah – which includes belief in Allaah, His angels, His Books, His Messengers, the Last Day, and the divine will and decree (al-qadar), both good and bad.

2.     Prayer done on time – there are five prayers that Allaah has enjoined during the night and day. The Sahaabah (may Allaah be pleased with hem) were all agreed that the one who does not pray is a kaafir. It is not permissible to delay the prayers beyond their appointed time. It is obligatory to perform all the obligatory parts of the prayer, and the Muslim should pray as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) prayed.

3.     Acceptable Hajj – which means:

a.      It should be done with halaal money (earned from permissible sources)

b.     One should avoid immoral actions, sin and arguments whilst doing Hajj

c.     He should perform all the rituals according to the Sunnah of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him).

d.     He should not do Hajj to show off, rather he should do it sincerely for the sake of Allaah.
e.      He should not follow it with any act of disobedience or sin.
4.     Honouring one's parents – which means obeying them in acts of obedience towards Allaah; it is not permissible to obey them in matters of disobedience or sin. Honouring them also means not raising one's voice to them, and not offending them with hurtful words. It also includes spending on them, and serving them.
5.     Jihad for the sake of Allaah. Allaah has prescribed jihad in order to establish Tawheed and spread Islam throughout the world. Allaah has prepared a great reward for the mujaahideen.
6.     Loving for the sake of Allaah and hating for the sake of Allaah. This means that the Muslim loves his fellow Muslim for the sake of Allaah, not for his colour, nationality or wealth, rather for his obedience to his Lord and his closeness to Him. Similarly he hates the sinner for his disobedience towards Allaah.
7.     Reading and reciting Qur’aan – whether that is in the portion he reads each day or what he recites in prayers at night (qiyaam al-layl).
8.     Persisting in acts of worship even if they are little. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) loved actions that were done consistently, even if they were little. A small action done persistently is better than a greater action done intermittently.
9.     Fulfilling one's trusts. This is an obligatory action and is one of the greatest of deeds. It is known in Islam that the hypocrite is the one who betrays his trust and does not render trusts back to the people who entrusted them to him.
10. Being forgiving towards people. This means foregoing one's personal rights, forgiving the one who has done you wrong, if doing so will lead to his changing, or if he has repented and regrets what he did. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “A person only increases in honour by forgiving.” Narrated by Muslim, 2588
11. Being truthful in speech. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “A man will keep on speaking the truth and endeavouring to tell the truth until he will be recorded with Allaah as a speaker of truth. Truthfulness is a means of salvation; it is a great characteristic which was one of the features of the Prophets and those who followed them in truth.” Narrated by Muslim, 2607.
12. Spending for the sake of Allaah. This includes spending on jihad, and spending on one's parents, the poor and needy, on building mosques, on printing copies of the Qur’aan and Islamic books, and spending on one’s family and children.
13. Ensuring that the Muslims are safe from one’s words and actions. That means refraining from gossip, backbiting, slander, insults and curses, and refraining from hitting or beating those who do not deserve such treatment.
14. Feeding the hungry – which includes feeding both humans and animals.
15. Spreading the greeting of salaam to those whom you know and those whom you do not know – except in the case of those whom the texts say we should not initiate the greeting of salaam with, namely the kuffaar.
16. Helping the needy, wayfarers and those who are helpless.
17. Keeping your evil away from people, which is an act of charity that may benefit you. 
And there are many other good deeds. 
The following hadeeth enumerates several good deeds: 
Al-Bayhaqi narrated that Abu Dharr said: I said, “O Messenger of Allaah, what will save a person from Hellfire?”
 He said, “Belief in Allaah.” 
I said, “O Messenger of Allaah, are there are any deeds that should accompany that belief?” 
He said, ‘He should give from that provision which Allaah has granted him.” 
I said, “O Messenger of Allaah, what if he is poor and does not have anything to give?” 
He said, “He should enjoin what is good and forbid what is evil.” 
I said, “O Messenger of Allaah, what if he cannot enjoin what is good and forbid what is evil?” 
He said, “He should help the one who is helpless (i.e., has no skills and cannot earn a learning).” 
I said, “What if he himself is helpless and cannot do anything?” 
He said, “He should help one who has been wronged.” 
I said, “What if he is weak and cannot help one who has been wronged?”  
He said, “You do not want to think of your companion as having any good in him. Let him refrain from harming people.” 
I said, “O Messenger of Allaah, if he does that, will he enter Paradise?” 
He said, “There is no believer who does not strive to acquire one of these characteristics, but I will take him by the hand and lead him into Paradise.”  
Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in al-Targheeb, 876 
And Allaah is the Source of strength.

Sahih International

Say, "O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah . Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful. 39:53

“And those who give that (their charity) which they give (and also do other good deeds) with their hearts full of fear (whether their alms and charities, etc., have been accepted or not), because they are sure to return to their Lord (for reckoning).
It is these who race for the good deeds, and they are foremost in them (e.g. offering the compulsory Salah (prayers) in their (early) stated, fixed times and so on).”
[al-Muminoon 23:60-61]

Help us give relief to Meryem for just £10 a year

All Praise is for Allah alone.

Update 19-09-14

Alhamdulillah we did it. We raised enough to sponsor Meryem for the next year Subhan'Allah. Although we have reached the target, should anyone else give we will ensure it will still reach Meryem and her Aunty in Morocco bi IhdnIllah.
Jazakum'Allahu Khairan to you all. 

This is the beautiful Meryem from Morocco Masha'Allah.
Meryem is the daughter of a dear sister I have known for around 15 years Subhan'Allah.

Meryem has a condition whereby parts of her tiny body are deformed, she cannot move or do anything for herself and her spine has twisted so much that it is affecting her intestines.

You may remember Meryem before when we sent her lots of nappies to make it a little easier for the family as both of her grandparents were very sick too. Sadly they returned to Allah within a short space of time and the Aunty of Meryem is caring for her alone.

Because of her deformed spine she now cannot even pass stools sometimes for a week at a time so the family have to take her to the hospital to administer a medicine which aids this.

Any medication that is needed on a daily basis has to be paid for so we have decided to sponsor Meryems medication on a monthly basis and to cover her basic needs. 

We are looking for 50 people to give a one off payment of just £10 a year. This will enable them to meet her basic needs Bi ihdnIllah.

Meryem is not able to leave the house at anytime except to go to the hospital as they do not have the facilities to take her. Below is a picture we posted on a previous request for help but now her spine has twisted nearer to the front of her body Subhan'Allah.

Jazakum'Allahu Khairan

This hadith is so, so beautiful and, although we cannot be beside Meryem as she is in Morocco, any relief we can give comes with reward from the Allah alone. May he accept our efforts for His sake alone. Ameen

On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), who said that the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said:
Allah (mighty and sublime be He) will say on the Day of Resurrection:
O son of Adam,
I fell ill and you visited Me not.
He will say:
O Lord, and how should I visit You when You are the Lord of the worlds?
Allah will say:
Did you not know that My servant So-and-so had fallen ill and you visited him not?
Did you not know that had you visited him you would have found Me with him?
O son of Adam,
I asked you for food and you fed Me not.
He will say:
O Lord, and how should I feed You when You are the Lord of the worlds?
Allah will say:
Did you not know that My servant So-and-so asked you for food and you fed him not?
Did you not know that had you fed him you would surely have found that (the reward for doing so) with Me?
O son of Adam,
I asked you to give Me to drink and you gave Me not to drink. He will say:
O Lord, how should I give You to drink whin You are the Lord of the worlds?
Allah will say:
My servant So-and-so asked you to give him to drink and you gave him not to drink. Had you given him to drink you would have surely found that with Me.
It was related by Muslim.
