How to become a person of Allah

Imam Ash-Shibli once was asked: Which is more important, the month of Rajab or Sha'ban? Then he replied: " Be a Rabbani (servant of God who always worships at all times and places), and do not become a Sha'bani (the one who worship Him only in the month of Sha'ban (Ibn Rajab al-Hambali in the book "Latha-iful ma'aarif" 313]

Most Muslims increase their worship in the holy month of Ramadan. However, after Ramadan they returned to their old habits. The mosque is crowded when Ramadan, but after that it returns quiet. Even mukena - women's clothing worn for prayer-washed clean only in Ramadan. Worship as if waiting for the moment of Ramadan that once a year, that’s very unfortunate.

The Muslim’s deed will only end if it has met ajal. Al Hasan Al Bashri rahimahullah said, "Allah Ta'ala doesn’t make ajal (the end of time )for the deeds of a believers than his death."

Then Al Hasan read the word of God

"And worship your Lord until there comes to you the certainty (ie death)." (Surat Al Hijr: 99). [1]

Ibn 'Abbas, Mujahid and the majority of Islamic Scholars said that the meaning of "al yaqin" in the verse is death. Death is called al yaqin because death is something definitely happens.

Az Zujaaj said that the meaning of this verse is to worship God forever. Other Islamic Scholar said, " Worshiping God is not only at certain times ". It means worship is commanded forever as Allah SWT said "Worship Allah until death". [2]

Ibn Kathir rahimahullah said, " it shows that worship such as prayer and other must be done forever as long as someone keep their mind. They do it according to the thier capabilities. "

From 'Aisyah -radhiyallahu' anha-, she said that the Messenger of Allah 'alaihi wa sallam said,

"The most beloved deed by Allah SWT is a continuous worship even if it is a little." 'Aisha always tried to do worship by trying hard to continue it. (HR Muslim No. 783)

Ibn Rajab al-Hambali said, "What is meant by the hadith is that we can be in the middle of doing deeds and trying to do it as long as we can. Because the most beloved deed by Allah is a continue worship even if it is a little. "

He also explained, " The Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam always do continuous worship. He also forbade to leave it . As he had forbidden 'Abdullah bin' Umar because he left the last night prayers (Tahajud).

Al Hasan Al Bashri said, "O Muslims,keep continue your worships. Remember! "Allah Ta'ala doesn’t make ajal (the end of time ) for the deeds of a believers than the death."
