Allah is the one who brings wealth and blessings to us. Our good actions are only the means we can take to help bring barakah into our lives. When we take actions in our lives it should not be to gain barakah, but to please Allah. Allah can then bring blessings to us. Our actions do not automatically bring barakah to us as if by some sort of formula or magic!
Barakah has three parts to its meaning
There are steps that you can take to increase the Barakah in your life
“This is a blessed Book We have revealed to you” (Quran 38:29)
“Pray to your Lord for your forgiveness. Indeed, He is All-forgiving; He will cause the heavens to rain upon you in abundance, and will help you with riches and sons, and will cause gardens to grow for you, and cause rivers to flow for you (Quran 71:10-12).
“Enjoin prayer on thy people, and be constant therein. We ask thee not to provide sustenance: We provide it for thee. But the (fruit of) the Hereafter is for righteousness”. (Quran 20:132)
When we encounter difficulties it is not necessarily because we have failed before Allah in some way. When we ask him for his blessing, we need to trust in him for this blessing.
Barakah is a divine good that flows from god. There are endless ways to increase the barakah in your life because there are are endless ways to please Allah. Barakah results from a life devoted to Allah and sincerely obeying his instruction.
