JUM’AH DIGEST: ATTAINING RELIGIOUS EXCELLENCE VIA IHSAN
Islam is a religion that has been perfected by Allah. The aim of Muslims is to attain the highest rank of religious excellence which doesn’t end at accepting Islam but also having faith (Iman) in Allah and working to attain the highedt rank of religious perfection IHSAN.
IHSAN is the highest status of Islam. Its definition that our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW) described is: “To worship Allah as if you see Him, and if you do not see Him, He sees you.” The concept of IHSAN in Islam is also that a Muslim is a responsible person where he does things in a good manner. We can say that IHSAN means a Muhseen is sure that Allah is seeing him/her in everything he/she says or does in his life. So, a Muhseen does his best to say and do only what pleases Allah Almighty and conforms to His commands.
In Holy Quran, Allah Almighty says: “Indeed, Allah commands justice, good conduct (Ihsan), and giving to relatives (and He) forbids immorality, bad conduct, and oppression. He admonishes you that perhaps you will be reminded” (Quran, 16: 90).
The verse below is the what every Iman uses to round up the Jum’ah service khutbah every Friday.
Allah loves those who believes in him and wants the best for the the Muslims. May we be among the members of Jannah… In Sha Allah
