Strive to be Eternally Blessed

Allah Ta’ala states in the Qur’an:

يَوْمَ يَأْتِ لاَ تَكَلَّمُ نَفْسٌ إِلاَّ بِإِذْنِهِ فَمِنْهُمْ شَقِيٌّ وَسَعِيدٌ

On the Day when it comes, no soul shall speak except by His (Allah’s) permission. Thus, from them will be those wretched, and (others) blessed (eternally).”

In the Tafseer, Ruh ul-Bayaan, it is stated:

قال فى التبيان علامة الشقاوة خمسة اشياء قساوة القلب وجمود العين والرغبة فى الدنيا وطول الامل وقلة الحياء. وعلامة السعادة خمسة اشياء لين القلب وكثرة البكاء والزهد فى الدنيا وقصر الامل وكثرة الحياء

The signs of wretchedness are five:

1) Hardness (mercilessness, remorselessness, etc.) of the heart.

2) Lifelessness (dryness, apathy) of the eyes.

3) Desire for the Dunya

4) Distant hopes (for things related to this Dunya)

5) Lack of modesty (shame).

The signs of eternal blessedness are five:

1) Softness of the heart

2) Abundance of shedding of tears (for matters related to the Akhirah)

3) Shedding away the Dunya

4) Little hopes (in matters related to the Dunya).

5) Abundance of modesty (shame, bashfulness)

(End of Tafseer)

Allah Ta’ala has granted us all free-will. Strive sincerely to acquire the qualities of the eternally blessed, and cleanse yourself of the qualities of the eternally wretched, and Allah Ta’ala will have already categorised you amongst the eternally blessed.
