The sahaba (r.a.) in the company of Rasoolullah (s.a.w) learnt certain qualities. These qualities are not the entire deen but if we bring them into our lives, insha allah, it will be easy for us to practice the entire Deen.

• La ilaaha - Any creation can cause us a harm or benefit, only by the will of Allah.
• Illallahu - Allah is independent of all creations. If He wills, He can give us success in the apparent circumstances of failure. And if He wills, He can give us failure in apparent circumstances of success.
• If we follow the sunnah (traditions) of Nabi (s.a.w) in our lives, insha allah, we will be successful in this world and in the hereafter.
