Way of Piety and Righteousness:


Taqwa (piety) and righteous deeds also bring us close to Allah. People close to Allah are those who are foremost in doing good things. They want to go ahead of every one in their faith, deeds of charity and goodness. Allah says:

And the pioneers who compete with other (in Faith and righteousness). These will be those Nearest to Allah. (Surah Al-Waqi'ah 56 - Verses 10-11)

Call on your Lord with humility and in private: for Allah loves not those who trespass beyond bounds. Do no mischief on the earth, after it hath been set in order, but call on Him with fear and longing (in your hearts): for the Mercy of Allah is (always) near to those who do good. (Surah Al-A'raf 7 - Verses 55-56)
