When a person is steeped in sin, and there seems no way out; when a person is battling to fight off an addiction and there seems to be no hope; there is a way: who you are connected to.
A toilet is built in a house on a spot of land. It becomes a despised place, a place which people only visit out of need. Later on, the house is transformed into a Musjid and converted for the worship of Allah. Now that piece of land on which the toilet stood becomes a sanctified area, an area in which people wish to spend more time, an area which will testify in one’s favour if one had performed Salaah on it. What changed? It depended on what the land was connected to.
In the month of Ramadan, a person gets the reward of performing a Fardh (compulsory) act for a Nafil (optional) one. The act is the same. What was different was its connection to a sacred time.
The Sahaba and companions of the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam received a status higher than any saint merely by seeing the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam in the state of Imaan (faith). Despite some of them being sinners and actively engaging in enmity towards Muslims prior to Islam, this connection with the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam transformed them into the best of people after the Prophets. Again, the key factor was the connection.
COMMON FACTOR In all three cases, the common thread is that being connected to a place, time or person linked to Allah has the power of causing an unparalleled revolution. This solution can be used by anyone wishing to pull his or her self out of a life of no hope.
The Quraan commands us to adopt Taqwa (consciousness of Allah) and in the same verse commands us to keep the company of the pious. The Ulama say that this shows that one will gain the necessary drive to adopt Taqwa by being with those who have it i.e. the pious.
When you want to make a change for the better in your life, the easiest way is to look for activities connected to Allah, for people connected to Allah and spend as much time as possible with them.
Just as a Haraam item like wine can be transformed into a Halaal one like vinegar, so too can any person, no matter how great the sin, transform into the greatest of saints.
