Barakah means blessing. Barakah comes from Allah عَزَّ وَجَلَّ. With blessings we are able to manage time efficiently, more productive and feel a sense of satisfaction in our life. With Barakah there is GROWTH AND INCREASE beyond expectation ((Khayr) more goodness with less). It also comes with a sense of CONTINUITY – the thing may not increase in a sense but the ability to continue engaging in it.
It may sound counterintuitive that you have to engage in some actions when you are possibly looking for time to do things. But this is blessing from Allah عَزَّ وَجَلَّ, by implementing them you will find yourself having time to do things and with the right intention!
P:S It doesn’t matter what mundane actions you’re partaking in. As long as you make sincere intentions doing it. You get rewarded and it becomes an act of Ibadah
Below is a compilation of actions we can engage in to attract barakah in our lives.
