|—||Imam Ali Ibn Abi Talib (as)|
|—||Prophet Muhammad. (Narrated by at-Tirmidhi)|
“My son, when you pray, do it like a person who is bidding farewell to this world, and don’t assume you will have another chance to pray again. My son, know that a believer dies in between two deeds, one he offers for today, where he will get immediate blessings, and the second deed is what he offers towards the day of resurrection, and that is where he will gain the ultimate benefits.”
“When you fast, then let your hearing, sight and tongue fast and abstain from lies and haraam things, and refrain from harming your neighbour. Be tranquil and dignified on the day when you fast, and do not let the day when you fast and the day when you do not fast be the same. ”
The Prophet (SAW) sent a small army unit. When it returned, the men said to the Prophet (SAW),
"Oh Messenger of Allah! The man whom you appointed our commander, recited only this Surah =which was surah ikhlas- after recitation in every rakah of every prayer."
When the Prophet (SAW) asked the man about the reason, he said,
"This Surah has the Attributes of Allah and I love to recite it." The Prophet (SAW) sent him the glad tidings that 'Allah also loves him.'
