First: having pure Tawheed of Allah (mighty and majestic).
Allah says: 2- …(being) sincere to Him in religion. 3- Unquestionably, for
Allah is the pure religion (Az-Zumar: 2-3).

Allah the Exalted also says: &"They were not commanded except to
worship Allah, (being) sincere to Him in religion&" (Al-Baiyinah: 5).

Every outward action which contradicts one’s inward thoughts and deeds is false


Second: being a true follower of the Prophet (peace be upon him), obeying him
in his commands, abstaining from his prohibitions and believing in whatever he
conveyed. Allah (mighty and majestic is He), says: &"O you who have
believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger, and those in authority among you.
If you disagree over anything, refer it to Allah and the Messenger, if you
should believe in Allah and the Last Day. That is the best (way) and best in
result&" (An-Nisâ&": 59).

Third: if you want to have Ikhlass, be careful to continue to do good deeds
properly, and always remember the seven kinds of people who will be in
Allah&"s shade on that Day when there will not be any shade but His,
one being described below: &"A man who givese charity in
secret…&" (Narrated by al-Bukhari).

Also remember that: &"The reward of deeds depends upon the
intentions…&" (Narrated by al-Bukhari).

Fourth: always praise Allah from the bottom of your heart, and stop looking at
what people have. Your bond should be with Allah, your Creator (mighty and
majestic is He), for a person who has Ikhlass does not look forward to having a
worldly gain or a spouse to marry, but rather he looks forward to achieving
Allah&"s Mercy.

Fifth: you have to throw your self at the doorstep of Your Lord, demonstrating
submissiveness and subordination, imploring Him to provide you with Ikhlass, to
purify you from hypocrisy, and to forgive all of your sins and wrongdoings.

To have Ikhlass is to abstain from seeking a person to see your good deeds
except Allah, and to expect rewards from only Him.

Sixth: to avoid and be aware of hypocrisy and showing-off. If a slave of Allah
begins to know the path to hypocrisy and lets it enter the soul, he will
completely distance himself from being able to have sincere_Iman/How_to_have_Al_Ikhlas"]Ikhlass[/URL]. An
example of this is when one describes himself, or accepts that people name him
as a Waley (a pious man who is supported by Allah), or boasts about his good
deeds and acts of worship. Allah (mighty and majestic is He) says: 15- Whoever
desires the life of this world and its adornments - We fully repay them for their
deeds therein, and they therein will not be deprived. 16- Those are the ones
for whom there is not in the Hereafter but the Fire; and lost is what they did
therein, and worthless is what they used to do (Hûd: 15-16).

Hypocrisy is an act of minor shirk and it suffices that one of its disastrous
results is that Allah does not accept a person&"s deeds, even if it
appears to be good, but He throws it back at its doer.

Seventh: seeking companionship of those who are sincere. The Prophet (peace be
upon him) said: &"A man follows the religion of his friend; so each
one should consider whom he makes his friend&" (Narrated by
at-Tirmidhi).

Ikhlass cannot exist in a person’s heart together with the love of praise and
tributes from others, just as fire cannot exist with water.

Eighth: Conealing oneself when worshipping Allah, and performing acts of
worship in secret. Allah the Exalted says: &"If you disclose your
charitable expenditures, they are good; but if you conceal them and give them
to the poor, it is better for you&" (Al-Baqarah: 271).

Ninth: seriously and continuously searching one’s soul at all times. Allah
(mighty and majestic is He) says: &" Those who strive for Us - We
shall surely guide them to Our ways&" (Al-&"Ankabût: 69).

Contemplate over Allah&"s Words which He uses here: &"…for Us
&" !!

Tenth: continuously supplicating Allah and seeking His Face and pleasure. A
slave in need of Allah will obtain His mercy and be granted his needs if he
continuously knocks on Allah’s door.
