Blessing can also be achieved thanks to some real good deeds we have done. For example as follows:
1. Thankful for All Favors
There is no pleasure, whatever its form is felt human, but comes from Allah SWT. On that basis, Allah SWT requires humans to always be grateful to Him, and always remember that pleasure comes from Allah SWT. Furthermore, spend some of his wealth on the path he blessed. Someone who has gotten taufik to give thanks, he will get blessing in his life, so that God will always multiply the pleasure for him.
Allah SWT said, “And remember when your Rabb echoes:” Verily, if you are grateful, surely We will add (favor) to you, and if you deny (my favor) then actually my adzab is very painful.”(Ibrahim: 7)
2. Paying Alms (Alms)
Zakat, both obligatory and sunnah (alms), is one of the practices that can cause a blessing to decline.
Allah SWT said, “Allah destroys usury and fertilizes alms.” (Al-Baqarah: 276).
Rasulullah SAW said, “There is no morning, but there are two angels who descended, then one of them said (praying):” O Allah, give a substitute for those who are active”. While others pray: “O Allah, afflict the person who is miserly (not giving) destruction.” (Muttafaqun alayhi)
3. Work Looking for sustenance with a heart Qona'ah, Not Filled with Ambition and Not Greedy
The nature of qona'ah and grace with the division of Allah SWT, is an incomparable wealth. With a soul filled with qona'ah, and good pleasure with all the sustenance that Allah has sent down for her, blessing will come to her.
Therefore, Islam teaches its people to always maintain the honor of religion and self in every endeavor it takes to seek sustenance.
4. Repent of All Acts of Sin
As sin is one of the causes of obstruction of luck from the culprit. Then on the contrary, repentance and forgiveness are one of the factors that can bring sustenance and blessings.
Allah SWT told about the Prophet Hud US along with his people: “And (Hud said): O my people, take forgiveness to your Lord and repent to Him. Undoubtedly He sends down on you a very heavy rain, and He will add strength to your strength and do not turn away with millions of sins.” (Hud: 52)
5. Connecting friendship straps
Among the good deeds that will bring blessings in life, namely connecting silaturrahim rope. This is an effort to establish good relations with everyone who will be related to our relationship with us.
Rasulullah SAW said, “Whoever is happy to be broadened (or blessed) his sustenance, or postponed (extended) his age, then he should be friendly.” (Muttafaqun ‘alaih)
6. Finding Fortune from the Halal Way
An absolute requirement for the realization of the blessing of property, is to obtain it in a legal way.
Rasulullah SAW said, “Do not feel that your sustenance comes too late. Because actually, not a servant will die, until he has come to his last fortune (which has been determined) for him. So, take a good way in finding fortune, namely by taking the halal and leaving the unlawful.” (HR Abdur-Razaq, Ibn Hibbanm and Al-Hakim)
Riba acts including those that can remove the blessing. Many usury eaters whose wealth is abundant, but they have never felt the blessing, peace and happiness of these illicit wealth.
Likewise, begging (begging) in seeking fortune, including acts that are forbidden and does not contain blessings. In one of the hadith, Rasulullah SAW explained, “It is not a person continually begging for others, until one day they will come on the Day of Judgment, in a state where there is not a single piece of flesh attached to his face.” (Muttafaqun alaih)
7. Work during morning time
Among the ways to gain blessings from God, is to instill a passion for healthy and productive life, and get rid of laziness. The trick is to always utilize the gift of Allah SWT with things that are useful and bring benefit to our lives. Including the best time to start working and looking for fortune, is morning time.
Rasulullah SAW once offered a blessing prayer, “O Allah, bless your ummah in their morning.” (Reported by Abu Dawud, At-Tirmidhi, An-Nasa-i, Ibn Majah and be cleansed by Shaykh Al-Albani)
Wisdom is devoted in the morning with blessing prayer, because morning is the time when various human activities begin. At that moment, someone felt the spirit after resting at night. Therefore, Rasulullah SAW prayed for blessing this morning so that all his people would get a part of the prayer. (By: Yusuf Mansyur)
