بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ
“Dengan menyebut nama Allah Yang Maha Pemurah lagi Maha Penyayang”
There are days that come to you and you’re tired, you just want to sleep and relax and “shut off” as they say. Those are the days in which you need to ask yourself a critical question:
‘Where am I going with life?’
If it’s towards Allah and for Allah, then regain your strength and continue your work, for Jannah is precious and must be sought. But if you look into your life and realise that it’s not towards Allah but towards world, then your tiredness becomes a blessing, for it is a reminder that you need to change direction and renew your purpose in life.
love this story on many levels. For one, it shows you that when someone’s focus is Jannah, their priorities change and their outlook on life is different. What we perceive as difficulty, they perceive as ease. What we perceive as calamity, they perceive as reward. What we perceive as obstacles, they perceive as opportunities for sincere du'a. Moreover, when your focus is Jannah, this world and its constant demand becomes small and the least of our concerns.
brothers and sisters, there’s plenty of relaxation where we’re going, but this is not the time for it. Let’s all work for Jannah and be productive in the path of Allah, and work so hard that one day our children will approach us and ask: “Abi” or “Ummi”: “When will we ever relax?” and you can smile and look them in the eyes and say, “When we enter Jannah inshaAllah”
