Most beloved act, the poor will go to Jannah first, virtues of handicap

Fatwaa ID: 653

Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarkathu

1) What’s the act, most loved by Allah?
Or what’s the deed or act which, makes him most happy ( like any particular zikr or dua) apart from the mandatory deeds?

2) Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “The poor Muslims will enter Paradise before the rich by half of a day, the length of which is like five hundred years.”
Source: Sunan al-Tirmidhī 2354
How are poor people defined/categorized according to Islam? Does it needs to be their whole life or a part of their life too?

3) When young people submits to Allah the whole world submits to them, is that true? If so what’s the category of young people in islam age wise?

4) Does handicapped individuals have any benefits in afterlife like that of poor?

5) what’s the apt time of Tahajud, I usually pray it before azaan of Fajr, I allocate 10-15mint to it but sometimes the azaan takes place while I’m still in my 1st rakath I’m praying it in its apt time?

Jazakallhu khair

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

The answers to your queries are as follows:

  1. Rasulullaah ﷺ, depending on the one being addressed and also as a form of mercy, referred to many things as “most loved” by Allaah Ta’aala. This includes performing salaah at its appropriate time, completing renditions after renditions of the Qur’aan, being dutiful to one’s parents, keeping ones tongue moist with the remembrance of Allaah Ta’aala, trying to benefit others, calling towards Allaah Ta’aala and being compassionate and mannered when dealing with others. However, the culmination of all this is maintaining consistency in all the good that you do.
  2. The poor will enter jannah before the wealthy because he has less to account for. The less one has, the quicker he will enter into Jannah.
  3. I was unable to find anything specifically regarding the youth. There are other Ahaadith that suggest that whoever submits to Allaah Ta’aala and makes his goal the Hereafter, the Dunyaa will come to him subjugated.
  4. Any difficulty that a person goes through in this world for which he exercises patience and anticipates reward from Allaah Ta’aala, he will surely see the fruit and reward of it the Hereafter.
  5. May Allaah Ta’aala accept your worship. Tahajjud Salaah can be performed anytime after the Ishaa Salaah and before the time of Fajr. It is more rewarding to perform it after having slept, preferably in the last third of the night.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
