Some reminders mentioned in Khutbah by Imam Dr. Shaheed Coovadia for pondering:


إِنَّ ٱلْمُتَّقِينَ فِى جَنَّـٰتٍ وَعُيُونٍ
ءَاخِذِينَ مَآ ءَاتَىٰهُمْ رَبُّهُمْ ۚ إِنَّهُمْ كَانُوا۟ قَبْلَ ذَٰلِكَ مُحْسِنِينَ
كَانُوا۟ قَلِيلًا مِّنَ ٱلَّيْلِ مَا يَهْجَعُونَ
وَبِٱلْأَسْحَارِ هُمْ يَسْتَغْفِرُونَ
وَفِىٓ أَمْوَٰلِهِمْ حَقٌّ لِّلسَّآئِلِ وَٱلْمَحْرُومِ

Indeed, the righteous will be amid Gardens and springs,

˹joyfully˺ receiving what their Lord will grant them. Before this ˹reward˺ they were truly good-doers ˹in the world˺:

they used to sleep only little in the night,

and pray for forgiveness before dawn.

And in their wealth there was a rightful share ˹fulfilled˺ for the beggar and the poor. (51:15-19)



لَن تَنَالُوا۟ ٱلْبِرَّ حَتَّىٰ تُنفِقُوا۟ مِمَّا تُحِبُّونَ ۚ وَمَا تُنفِقُوا۟ مِن شَىْءٍ فَإِنَّ ٱللَّهَ بِهِۦ عَلِيمٌ

You will never achieve righteousness until you donate some of what you cherish. And whatever you give is certainly well known to Allah. (3:92)
