Three Best Reward able Actions. By Mohammad Rafique Etesame Abu 'Amr ash-Shaybani said, "The owner of this house (and he pointed at the house of 'Abdullah ibn Mas'ud) said, "I asked the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, which action Allah loves best. He replied, 'Prayer at its proper time.' 'Then what?' I asked. He said, 'Then kindness to parents." I asked, 'Then what?' He replied, 'Then jihad in the Way of Allah.'" He added, "He told me about these things. If I had asked him to tell me more, he would have told me more. In this hadith three actions are mentioned that Allah All-Mighty loves them, i.e. 'Prayer at its proper time, second is: kindness to parents, and third is: jihad in the Way of Allah. So, we should try our best to act upon them so that Allah All-Mighty may grant His mercy upon us, Ameen!
