.: Precious 1 Minute :.

What can you do in one minute of your life?

1.. In one minute you can say Surat Al Fatiha 7 times, silently and repetitively. The reward for each reading of the Surah: 1420 gooddeeds! This is on the basis that there are 142 letters in the Surah, with each letter getting you 10 good deeds. So after doing a simple calculation,7 readings will get you 9940 deeds. subhaanallah!

2.. In one minute you can say Surat Al-Ikhlaas (Kul Huwa Allahu Ahad) approximately 20 times, silently and repetitively. Remember that one reading of this beautiful Surah equals a third of the Quran. Thus 20 readings means that you have read the Quran a whopping 6.7 times! If you devote one minute of each day to this Surah you'd have read the Quran. 201 times in a month, 2412 times in one year! All this in just one minute.

3.. In one minute you can say: "Laa Ilaaha Illa Allah, Wahdahu Laa Shareeka Lah, La! hu Al Mulk Wal Hamd, Wa Huwa 'Ala Kulli Shay'in Qadeer" 20 times. (There is no god worthy of worship but Allah, alone, without any partners. For Him is all Dominion and Praise, and He is Capable of doing anything) Each saying is equal to the deed of freeing 8 slaves from the Children of Ismail (peace be upon him), and what noble slaves to set free!

4.. In one minute you can say "Subhaanallahu wa bi Hamdihi" 100 times. (All praise and glory is due to Allah) Whoever says this everyday will have his/her sins forgiven, even if the sins were as much as the froth of the ocean.

5.. In one minute you can say "Subhaanallahu wa bi Hamdihi, Subhaanallahu Al 'Atheem" 50 times. (All Praise and Glory is due to Allah, All Praise is due to Allah the Almighty). These are "a couple of phrases, light on the tongue, heavy on the scales (on the Day of Judgement), beloved to the All Merciful (Allah)". (Agreed upon).

6.. In on! e minute you can say "Subhaanallah, wa Al Hamdu Lil'lah, wa Laa Ilaaha Illallah, wa Allahu Akbar" 18 times (All Praise is due to Allah, and All Glory is due to Allah, and there is no god but Allah, and Allah is the Greatest). These are the most beloved words to Allah(swt) and his Prophet saw) that the sun has ever risen upon.

7.. In one minute you can say "Laa Ilaaha Illallah" approximately 50 times (There is no true god worthy of worship, except Allah). These are the greatest words, as they are the words of true Islamic Monotheism.

8.. In one minute you can say "Laa Hawla wa Laa Kuwata Illa bi'Laah" over 40 times. (There is no Power and Might except by Allah) This sentence is one of the treasures of Paradise.

9.. In one minute you can say "Salla-Allahu 'Alayhe wa Sallam" 50 times.(sending peace and blessings upon the Prophet) In return you get 500 prayers from Allah, as each prayer you make to his Prophet,! 10 are returned to you!

10.. In one minute you can raise your hands to Allah (s.w.t) and supplicate with any words you wish.

11.. In one minute you can advise your brother/sister in Islam if they are doing anything incorrect.

12.. In one minute you can remove anything harmful that may be lying on the street.

13.. In one minute you can give a few words of comfort to a brother/sister who is concerned for any reason.
