Islamica: 4 Keys to Success

I have posted this before but this is something that myself and others need to be reminded of. An article by Sh Faraz on 4 Keys to Success:

Guaranteeing Success by “True” Conditions


The idea of striving for success is a central theme of both the Qur'an and Prophetic teachings. It is something ultimately sought by every human. But how is success achieved?

Shaykh al-Islam Shabbir Usmani, one of the great Muslim scholars of the 20th century and a leading voice in the Independence Movement in the Indian subcontinent, said we can understand from the Qur'an and Prophetic teachings that, if the following four conditions are present, success is guaranteed.

The Four Keys

1) One’s intention must be true;
2) One’s goal must be true;
3) The means one takes must be true; and
4) The way one takes the means must be true

How are these four conditions made “true”?
