The Sahabas used to Compete with each others in earning Hasanah and we too should race with each other in improving ourself and in getting closer to Allah (Swt)

Believers naturally have a competitive drive and are usually dissatisfied with what is low, and they never rest in this life, for they always aspire to perfection. The believer always feels that he is in a competition, and, therefore, makes his preparations and puts his shoulder to the wheel to attain his goals and to become one of the forerunners. Allah, The Almighty, Says (what means): {And the forerunners, the forerunners – Those are the ones brought near [to Allah]} [Quran 56:10-11]

 Prophet SAW taught Muslims to hasten in matters of the Hereafter when he said: “Hasten to do good acts before you are overtaken by temptation, which will be [gloomy] like parts of a dark night.” In another Hadeeth he SAW said: “Deliberation should be in everything except in one’s work for the Hereafter.”

On another occasion, Abu Bakr and ‘Umar RA heard the Messenger of Allah SAW praising the way Ibn Mas‘ood, may Allah be pleased with him, recited the Quran, saying: “A person who wants to recite the Quran as tenderly as it was revealed should recite it in the same way as Ibn Umm ‘Abd does.” ‘Umar, may Allah be pleased with him, hurried at night to convey these glad tidings to Ibn Mas‘ood, may Allah be pleased with him. Ibn Mas‘ood, may Allah be pleased with him, asked, “Why have you come at this time?” ‘Umar, may Allah be pleased with him, replied, “I bring you glad tidings of what the Messenger of Allah has said about you.” Ibn Mas‘ood, may Allah be pleased with him, said to him, “Abu Bakr has already preceded you.” ‘Umar RA said, “If he really did, then he usually does precede us in everything that is good. Whenever we compete against each other in goodness, Abu Bakr always wins!”

 Such were the noble and sublime morals of these dignified people. They vied with one another but with love, respect and happiness, because the person whom Allah has granted goodness and precedence is far above grudges, disdain or envy.

 Lessons Learnt from Surah Al Hujurat Ayat 13 (Quran 49:13 ) :All Human are equal in Sight of Allah irrespective of their color, Race or Nationality.  Human beings, We created you all from a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes so that you may know one another. Verily the noblest of you in the sight of Allah is the most God-fearing of you.Surely Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware.(49:13) This Verse answers the question why are their different tribe ,why all People are not of same colour and why is World not  single Nation.
