    1. First and foremost beg of your Lord for guidance and assistance. Beg of Him of His mercy. Cry to Him for His help. Seek Him out for your provisions. Put your total trust and reliance upon Him. Do an action only for His face and seeking His reward. Be sincere to Him and to Him alone. Read the Qur’aan in abundance. Memorize it and read it often. Don’t let a day go by without reading the Qur’aan. Follow the teachings and example of Muhammad (Allah’s peace and blessings upon him). Follow his path. Walk in his footsteps.
      May Allah give me, you and all of the Muslims success in obeying Him.
