DAY 6 : DREAM BIG
فَإِذَا قُضِيَتِ الصَّلَاةُ فَانتَشِرُوا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَابْتَغُوا مِن فَضْلِ اللَّهِ وَاذْكُرُوا اللَّهَ كَثِيرًا لَّعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ
“And when the prayer has been concluded, disperse in the land and seek the bounties of Allah and be grateful to Allah so that you may be successful.”
[Al Qur’an 62:10]
Allah سبحانه و تعالى, no doubt, created us to worship Him, but He also asked us to aim for goodness in this Duniya. We can’t be praying all day and night, except that we lose our enthusiasm, which in turn will shrink our focus. This is why, to keep our minds properly occupied, we need to be engaged in the beneficial knowledge of this Duniya, too. If we seek good ‘Ilm, our earning will be Halaal and full of Barakah. This will help us take full advantage of our lives here. And, as a result, we’ll end up inspiring the youth and the Ummah at large to build a much better and healthier world.
It’s a common mistake among the youth today where they neglect the Duniya talking about the bounties of the hereafter. We need to logically perceive matters and understand that this gift of life has been given to us for a reason.
May Allah سبحانه و تعالى bless us with a better understanding of our Deen. اللهم آمين.
