Would you like to be a Key to Good?


The Messenger of Allaah صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم said:

"Verily amongst the people are those who are keys to good and locks to evil. And amongst the people are those who are keys to evil and locks to good. So Toobaa[1] for the one whom Allaah has placed the keys of good upon his hands and woe be to the one whom Allaah has placed the keys of evil at his disposal.”
[Sunan Ibn Maajah #237, Ibn Abi 'Aasim in "As-Sunnah" #297, Musnad At-Tayaalisi #2082, Al-Bayhaqi in Shu'ab al-Eemaan #698, & Al-Albani declared it good in As-Saheehah #1332]

Sheikh ‘Abdur Razaaq bin ‘Abdul Muhsin Al-‘Abbaad حفظه الله said:

"From the ways to be a key to good is by supplication."

Supplication is the key to every good as one of the Pious Predecessors stated something similar when he said: “I contemplated about the entirety of good and found that it has many entrances: Prayer is from good, fasting is from good, hajj (pilgrimage to the Sacred House of Allaah) is from good, the entrances of good are numerous. Then I realized that all of that is in the Hands of Allaah and thus I was certain that supplication is the key to all good.”

You are incapable of praying unless Allaah assists you in that, you are incapable of performing the pilgrimage to the Sacred House, fasting, giving charity, being dutiful to your parents, carrying out acts of righteousness unless Allaah assists you in that. For this reason, the Prophet صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم recited on the day of Ahzaab:

If it wasn’t for Allaah, we wouldn’t have been guided, nor would we have fasted or offered prayer.”
[Bukhari #6620, Muslim ‎‎#1803]
