(2) preparing the deceased for burial when he dies

(3) marrying off the daughters when they reach the age of maturity

(4) paying off the debt as soon as possible

(5) repenting for the sins committed as soon as possible

Satan was condemned for five things:

(1) He did not acknowledge his sin

(2) He did not regret for his sin

(3) He did not blame himself

(4) He did not beg forgiveness for his sin

(5) He completely lost hope from the mercy of Allah

– Muhammad bin Dawri

Counsel 3:

The forgiveness of Adam (a.s) was due to five things

(3) He did not blame anyone except himself

(4) He begged forgiveness for his sin

(5) He did not despair of the Mercy from Allah

O Mankind, do your deeds by regarding the five characteristics as important:

(1) Worship Allah as much as your needs are for His grace

(2) Take from this dunya to the extent of your stay in it

(3) Disobey Allah to the extent that you can bear his punishment

(4) Prepare provisions during this dunya to the extent of your stay in the grave

(5) Do as much good and virtuous deeds as you would require to live in the Paradise

– Shaqiq Balkhi (r.a)
