*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 wealt h 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.
‎ان يك صوابا فمن الله، وإن يكن خطأ فمني ومن الشيطان)
‎بارك الله فيكم ونفع بِنَا جميع المسلمين
‎استاذة:  رقية يوسف محمد
Have a beautiful week
