Amal in general terms, means good deeds or beneficial and beautiful acts performed according to the will of Allah Subhan Wa Taalah. Doing righteous deeds are mentioned right after Believing in Allah, in the Holy QURAN. Those who believe in the existence of Supreme power, no one but Allah, he or she has to support the faith with the Acts of
Worship. These acts of worship are known as Amal in Islam.
How It is Performed?
To perform an amal, you need to have complete knowledge. For instance, the maghrib prayer have 3 raakats of Farz in it, but if you will recite four raakats in its place, then it is a wrong amal or act of worship. Similarly, for every reason, the Molvi Sahib will guide you with the right amal and you need perform it, as told by the Alim.
How is It Beneficial for Us?
To understand the benefits of amal, you need to understand the difference between Faith and good deeds (amal). Believing in Almighty is faith, avoiding righteous acts is taqwa and doing a good deed is Amal.
Amal is the second most significant deed to be done after attaining the knowledge of Islam. So, Allah has promised his blessings for those who perform Amal in the correct way and for those who are learning them. Since, it is promised by the creator therefore the benefits it may offer to the mankind, are countless & we shall never fall short
while performing an Amal.
