In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Free oneself from the opinion of others:
..... only for the countenance of Allah. We wish not from you reward or gratitude.
(Surah Al-Insan, Verse 9)
Compete in doing good:
.... Had Allah willed, He would have made you one nation (united in religion) but (He intended) to test you in what He has given you; so race to (all that is) good. To Allah is your return all together ...
(Surah Al-Ma'idah, Verse 48)
Increase the fear of Allah:
Or who is it that could provide for you if He withheld His provision? But they have persisted in insolence and aversion.
(Surah Al-Mulk, Verse 21)
Understand that every soul shall taste death:
Every soul will taste death, and you will only be given your (full) compensation on the Day of Resurrection .... And what is the life of this world except the enjoyment of delusion.
(Surah Aale Imraan, Verse 185)
Only expect the Pleasure of Allah:
And whoever of you devoutly obeys Allah and His Messenger and does righteousness - We will give her her reward twice; and We have prepared for her a noble provision.
(Surah Al-Ahzab, Verse 31)
May Allah give us all the ability to bring sincerity into every part of our lives - Ameen.
