Simple, Easy Deeds With Great Rewards - Islamic Perspective.

Introduction: Allah the Almighty has sent us in this world so that we worship Him alone and try our best to make our Lord happy so that we get the best of the rewards in the life hereafter.
In contrary to what should be the purpose of our lives , we spent our time, energy and our all our resources to make the life of this world a comfortable and beautiful one. Nobody can deny the fact that one day he/she has to die and as a Muslim we also believe that we have to answer Our God about the life spent in this world, so why not try our best to gather as much good deeds as we can.
The way of life which Islam teaches is not a difficult one, neither it is hard to earn rewards from simple and easy deeds, which with a little practice we can make them a part of our daily lives.

Here I have tried to summarize simple and easy deeds which are great and rewarding in the sight of Allah. We would neither need much time, energy or money to make these a habit but surely we hope that Allah will give us lots of rewards in this life as well as in the hereafter.

1. Having Good Intentions: Before doing any work, either it is your studies, household work or business if we start it with a good intention to please our God- Allah it becomes a reward.
Our Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) said:
Actions are according to intentions, and everyone will get what was intended. Whoever migrates with an intention for Allah and His messenger, the migration will be for the sake of Allah and His messenger, And whoever migrates for worldly gain or to marry a woman, then his migration will be for the sake of whatever he migrated for. ( Narrated By Sahih Bukhari And Sahih Muslim) 
We do a lot of things daily for example we eat, drink, make friends,  go to work, cook, etc, and if before doing any of these things we simply make a good intention for example before we eat we can make an intention that we are eating because Allah has told us to take care of our bodies and that once we get energy from this food we will praise Allah for providing us the blessings , the action of eating will be rewarded too.
