Who is the successful one?
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
Question: ”Who is the successful one in the sight of Allah?”
Answer: ”The successful one is he who adheres to the religion of Islam—holding onto it in creed, statement and action, being enlightened by the Noble Qur’aan and Sunnah of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) and by that which the pious predecessors were upon—the companions of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) and those who followed them in righteousness.”
