Imaan. Much talk about it, eh? Did you know, it increases and decreases as well? =)
Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri:
Allah’s Apostle said, “While I was sleeping I saw (in a dream) some people wearing shirts of which some were reaching up to the breasts only while others were even shorter than that. Umar bin Al-Khattab was shown wearing a shirt that he was dragging.” The people asked, “How did you interpret it? (What is its interpretation) O Allah’s Apostle?” He (the Prophet ) replied, “It is the Religion.”
Deen. Some people have loads of it. Some have a little. And some, insufficient.
How to know the length of your shirt (Deen)?
Only you can know the answer to that question. Ask yourself. Ask your heart. Because Faith lies in there. If not, this might be helpful: Do you loooove to recite Qur’an? Do you loooove to act upon its teachings? Do you loooove to follow the Sunnah? Do you loooove people who keep telling you about Deen? Or do you avoid all of these?
How to increase the length of your shirt?
Qur’an. Sunnah. Get good company. Do little acts of charity. Small good deeds. Be helpful. Care. Love.
You know how I check my level of Faith? By analyzing my Salah. If it was a beyond awesome experience, I give myself an A. If it was just ‘okay’, B. If none of these, a big and bold F. But that’s just me. ;)
