I'd Like to Do Good
A bedouin asked the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam): “I wish to be among those who do good.” The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) replied: “Adore Allah as though you see Him. If you don't see Him, know that He sees you. In this way you will be among those who do good.” [Related by Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal]
Think of Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) above the heavens, knowing that despite His grandeur and Majesty He is listening directly to you and looking at you. Then talk to Him. Refer to Him before everything you do. Your deeds will change. Your life will change.
