Bismillah بسم اللہ
Recital of “Bismillah” when starting any work is a sing of Muslims. Our blessed and exalted Prophet (sallallaho alihi wasallam) has said
كُلُّ كَلَامٍ أَوْ أَمْرٍ ذِي بَالٍ لَم یُبداء فیہ بِبسمِ اللهِ فَهُوَ أَقْطَعُ و اَجزِمُ
“Every Important work not began with Bismillah remains imperfect and half done”
According to the established sunnah of our eternally blessed Prophet (sallallaho alihi wasallam), every important work should be started with Bismillah and every Muslim must follow it and inculcate this habit, بسم اللہ should be recited when entering or leaving the house embarking upon vehicle and upon and upon disembarking form it. when the steed or mount stumbles, when one himself stumbles, upon entering the mosque and coming out of it, a little before entering lavatory and immediately upon coming out of it, before starting to eat and drink, upon starting to dress, before putting on shoes, before reading a book, before writing a letter or anything else, before starting day’s work, before entering into a pact, in fact every change of state should be prefaced with بسم اللہ;
too should recite it when starting to cook, when adding spices or condiments to food, when serving food, when stitching a dress,w when dressing a child; they should also inculcate in their children the habit of reciting Bismillah. inculcation of this habit of beginning all works with Bismillah is very easy and leads to rapid accumulation of much merit in one’s record. Recital of Bismillah turn mundane activates into acts of worship.
and an unbeliever both carry out the daily routines of life but there is immense difference between the two: the unbeliever does everything in a state of unawareness, while a Muslim does whatever he has to do by consciously accepting and realizing the fact that nothing can be accomplished without Divine Will help and Pleasure. This realization change worldly acts into acts of devotion to, and worship of ALLAH almighty.
May ALLAH guide us to the right path
