How Can One Race Towards Good Deeds?

Ibn al-Mundhir narrated – as reported in al-Durr al-Manthoor (2/314) –  from Anas ibn Maalik (ra) about the meaning of the Verse (interpretation of the meaning):

“Race with one another in hastening towards forgiveness from your Lord”

[al-Hadeed 57:21]

That it refers to the first takbeer. This was narrated by some of the Mufassireen from Mak-hool and Sa’eed ibn Jubayr among the Taabi’een.

What is Hikmah?

يُؤْتِي الْحِكْمَةَ مَن يَشَاءُ وَمَن يُؤْتَ الْحِكْمَةَ فَقَدْ أُوتِيَ خَيْرًا كَثِيرًا وَمَا يَذَّكَّرُ إِلَّا أُولُو الْأَلْبَابِ

He grants Hikmah to whom He pleases, and he, to whom Hikmah is granted, is indeed granted abundant good. But none remember (will receive admonition) except men of understanding.

(Qur’an 2:269)

The people of the past have said that Hikmah doesn’t mean Prophethood. Rather, it means knowledge, understanding and the Qur’an.

Others have said that it means beneficial knowledge and righteous actions!

Understanding the Qur’an

It’s very important that we look at the Qur’an as a series of messages from a beloved one, which we don’t understand. What lengths would we go to in order to understand it? This is the same, or even more, with the Speech of Allah!
