Hastening to do Good Deeds
Allah, the Exalted, says:
"So hasten towards all that is good".
"And march forth in the way (which leads to) forgiveness from your Rubb, and for Jannah as wide as are the
heavens and the earth, prepared for Al-Muttaqun (the pious)".

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
"Be prompt in doing
good deeds (before you are overtaken) by turbulence which would be like a part of the dark night. A man would be a
believer in the morning and turn to disbelief in the evening, or he would be a believer in the evening and turn
disbeliever in the morning, and would sell his Faith for worldly goods.''
This Hadith tells that the Day of Resurrection will be preceded by a long chain of calamities.
Because of the rush of these calamities, religion and Faith will loose their value in people. There will be a race for
wealth, so much so that people would not hesitate to compromise their religion and Faith to acquire wealth. People
will rapidly change their faces. This is what actually happening. In this situation true believers are exhorted to
adhere strictly to Faith and perform noble deeds without delay.

`Uqbah bin Al-Harith (May Allah be pleased with him) said: Once I performed the 'Asr prayer in Al-Madinah
behind the Prophet (PBUH). He (PBUH) got up quickly after finishing the prayer with Taslim, and stepping over the
people, went to one of the rooms of his wives. The people were startled at his haste, and when he came out and saw
their astonishment at his urgency he said,
"I recalled that there was left with me some gold which was meant for
charity; I did not like to keep it any longer, so I gave orders that it should be distributed".
In another narration, Messenger of Allah said,
"I had left some gold for Sadaqah in the house, and did not wish to
keep it overnight".
1. A person should not keep such a thing because of which his attention is diverted from Allah (SWT) towards that
2. Although it is undesirable to jump over the neck of people in ordinary circumstances but it is permissible when
special conditions warrant it.

Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
A man, said to the Prophet (PBUH) during the battle of Uhud:
"Tell me where I shall be if I am killed". When he (PBUH) replied that he would be in Jannah, the man threw away
some dates which he had in his hand and fought until he was killed
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
