What is Hacking?
Life hacking refers to any productivity trick, shortcut, skill, or novelty method to increase productivity and efficiency, in all walks of life; in other words, anything that solves an everyday problem of a person in a clever or non-obvious way.
I’ve been life hacking most of my life, I always look for shortcuts and ways to make things easier, whether that is through technology, or otherwise, this includes Islamic Hacking.
“Religion is very easy and whoever overburdens himself in his religion will not be able to continue in that way. So you should not be extremists, but try to be near to perfection and receive the good tidings that you will be rewarded.” [Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 2, Number 38]
Hadith – Sahih Bukhari, Abdu Dawud, Muslim and Malik
‘A’ishah said, “The Prophet of Allah, upon him be peace, never once chose the more difficult of two matters, so long as the simpler choice was not sinful. If it was sinful, he would be the last of people to choose it. Never once did the Prophet of Allah seek revenge for himself. However, if a wrong was done to what Allah had made sacred, he would seek revenge for Allah.”
I took inspiration to start this site from similar sites like http://lifehacker.com/
What kind of Islamic Hacks will you learn?
There are two areas I would like to concentrate on.
First is our afterlife, how much reward we can accumulate through our good deeds, and the fastest easiest ways to do that. Ultimately we won’t have access to those good deeds without a firm belief in Allah’s mercy, we must all know that our good deeds are not what will get us into heaven, it will only be the mercy of Allah. The rewards we are accumulating will be the bounty that we earned.
Second is our worldly life, there are dua’s (prayers) and actions that we can perform to increase the quality of our life on this world.
Who Am I?
I’m no one special, not a scholar, but any information I put up on this site, I will do my best to validate it through Hadith and Quran, with appropriate references. I love Islam, and I love sharing what I know.
I may make mistakes, and In’sha’Allah (God Willing), you will point them out and I will fix them as quickly as I can.
To non-muslims, and maybe even some Muslims, these acts, and rituals may seem odd, and if you really think about it, what does repeating “Allahu-Akbar” (God is Greater) really do for anyone? They’re just words, just sounds coming out of our mouths, or the act of the daily prayers, God doesn’t need them, God even tells Muslims that God has no needs, there’s no apparent benefit. So why bother? Well, these acts and rituals are what God has given us as a gift to allow us to earn rewards in this life but mainly for the next. Although some acts (charity, physically helping others, etc.) do directly benefit others, the real benefit is for ourselves, the reward is for us, the reward is from God, and performing these acts and rituals are an opportunity to express our humility, humbleness and submission towards God.

Allah’s Messenger [صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم] said: “When a man dies, his good deeds come to an end except three: ongoing charity, beneficial knowledge and righteous offspring who will pray for him.” [SahihMuslim: 3084]
Most of all I need your Dua’s, please remember me!
