Wanna Be The Best In Everything?

Khalid Ibn El-Waleed narrated the following:

A Bedouin came one day to the prophet and said to him, "O, Messenger of Allah! I've come to ask you a few questions about the affairs of this life and the Hereafter.

Ask what you wish.

I'd like to be the most of learned of men.
Fear Allah, and you will be the most learned of men.

I'd like to be the richest man in the world
Be contented, and you will be the richest man in the world.

I'd like to be the most of just men.
Desire for others what you desire for yourself, and you will be the most just of men.

I want to be the best of men
Do good to others and you will be the best of men.

I wish to be the most favored by Allah
Engage much in Allah's praise, and you will be favored by Allah

I would like to complete my faith
If you have good manners you will complete your faith

I wish to be among those who do good
Adore Allah as if you see Him, for surely He sees you.

I wish to be Obedient to Allah
If observe Allah's commands you will be obedient to Allah

Id like to be free from all sins
Bathe your body from impurities and you will be free from all sins

I'd like to be raised in the day of judgment in the light
Don't wrong yourself or any other creature, and you will be raised on the day of Judgment in the light

I'd like Allah to bestow His Mercy on me
If you have mercy on yourself and on others Allah will bestow His Mercy on you.

I'd like my sins to be very few
If you seek forgiveness from Allah as much as you can, your sins will be very few

I'd like to be the most honorable man
If you do not complain to any fellow creature, you will be the most honored of men

I'd like to be the strongest of men
If you put your trust in Allah, you will be the strongest of men

I'd like for Allah to enlarge my provision
If you keep yourself pure, Allah will enlarge your provision

I'd like to be loved by Allah and His Messenger
If you love what Allah and His messenger love, you will be among their beloved ones

I wish to be safe from Allah's wrath on the day of Judgment
If you do not lose your temper with any of your fellow creatures you will be safe from the wrath of Allah on the day of judgment

I'd like my prayers to be responded
If you avoid forbidden actions your prayers will be responded

I'd like Allah not to disgrace me on the Day of Judgment
If you guard your chastity Allah will not disgrace you on the Day of Judgment

I'd like Allah to protect me with a covering protection on the Day of Judgment
Do not uncover your fellow creatures faults, and Allah will provide you with a covering on the Day of Judgment

What will save me from sins
Tears, humility and illness will save you

What are the best deeds in the eyes of Allah
Gentle manners, modesty, and patience in adversity

What are the worst evils in the eyes of Allah
Hot temper and Miserliness

What extinguishes hell's fire on the Day of Judgment?
Patience in adversity and misfortunes

What assuages the wrath of Allah in this life and the hereafter
Concealed charity and kindness to others
