Barakah.....The Blessing!

Hazrath Umar (r.a) saw a man with a big belly, he asked him. What’s that in front of you? He said. Ameerul Mumineen, this is Barakah. Hazrath Umar (r.a) replied ‘This is not Barakah, this is Azaab.

Note: Don’t think anything grown big is Barakah. Someone having tooth pain has his cheeks swollen?  Will anyone call that a Barakah?. So nowadays we have the habit of calling ‘Barakah to anything that’s grown out of proportion. In fact, Barakah from Allah is the productivity in something. It’s the Quality and not the Quantity. When Allah puts His Barakah into something, it happens beyond our calculations. The Productivity is beyond anything we can physically explain. 

The formula for Barakah is. Eemaan + Taqwa = Barakah. If anyone has these two in their lives, Barakah is certain 

 وَلَوۡ أَنَّ أَهۡلَ ٱلۡقُرَىٰٓ ءَامَنُواْ وَٱتَّقَوۡاْ لَفَتَحۡنَا عَلَيۡہِم بَرَكَـٰتٍ۬ مِّنَ ٱلسَّمَآءِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضِ وَلَـٰكِن كَذَّبُواْ فَأَخَذۡنَـٰهُم بِمَا ڪَانُواْ يَكۡسِبُونَ 

And if the people of the towns had believed ( Eemaan ) and had the Taqwâ (piety), certainly, We should have opened for them blessings ( Barakaath ) from the heaven and the earth, but they denied (the Messengers). So We took them (with punishment) for what they used to earn. (Surah Al-Araf: Ayah: 86)
