The common meaning of the word Barakah is “productivity or increase” in something. It could be in terms of easiness or betterment in someone’s living matters, or could also be taken in the context of improvement in prosperity. This boost is not something one time increase in something, rather it could be achieving supplementary with small effort, usage of time or resources etc. The religious interpretation of this terminology is the achievement of the sacred righteousness and sense of divine satisfaction with whatever one has, which is not observable, rather it becomes the necessary part of one’s personality.
In the present period of materialism, almost everyone is complaining about lack of one thing or another, e.g. some people complain over their income and say in a manner of protest that they can not understand why their earnings are not sufficient to fulfil family needs appropriately. For some people, it could also be a condition of anxiety at heart and not being capable to benefit from prayers to ALLAH Almighty because of shortage of concrete devotion. The solutions to all such problems lie in spending life according to the way of ALLAH Almighty and the Sunnah of the Holy Prophet (PBUH).
Following are ten ways, which are within the boundaries of Islamic instructions, to get Barakah in one’s wealth, and life in common.
- Consciousness of ALLAH Almighty
The lack of realization of the presence of ALLAH is some of the prime causes of being lack of sufficient happiness and wealth. That is that reason why true Muslim never complain about any type of scarcity, rather it is the habit of those who have weak imaan (faith).
And when they have [nearly] fulfilled their term, either retain them according to acceptable terms or part with them according to acceptable terms. And bring to witness two just men from among you and establish the testimony for [the acceptance of] ALLAH. That is instructed to whoever should believe in Allah and the Last day. And whoever fears ALLAH – He will make for him a way out
- Reliance on One God, ALLAH Almighty
Issues like missing mental and happiness are general nowadays, everyone is looking for help somewhere, few visit psychologists, whereas others go to so called religious helpers, forgetting the reality that the Final Provider is only the Creator of the universe, ALLAH Almighty and that is the symbol of a weak faith.
Verse 65:3 of Holy Quran
And will provide for him from where he does not expect. And whoever relies upon ALLAH – then He is sufficient for him. Indeed, ALLAH will accomplish His purpose. ALLAH has already set for everything a [decreed] extent.
- Thanking ALLAH Almighty for all blessings
Seeking constant help and rewards of the Most Beneficent through His dependence and remembrance is no doubt essential for us to be eligible for His blessings, but it is also extremely imperative to be grateful to the ALLAH Almighty for all His past and present excellent things, as the ALLAH Almighty address us in the Sacred Book as, verse 14:7:
And [remember] when your Lord proclaimed, ‘If you are grateful, I will surely increase you [in favour]; but if you deny, indeed, My punishment is severe.’
