How Different People Seem to Live Their Lives Dr. Pasha (Bringing Islam to the World One Concept at a Time! Taking the Qur'an to Every Home and Heart that Needs It -- And which One...
"Ultimately," as they say, the main purpose of the life of everyone of us on earth is to take the Deen of Allah to every inch of this earth.
In other words, to take the Qur'an to every home and heart in every corner of this world.
That is why we were created by God. And that is why we exist.
Each and every one of us.
Male as well as female.
That is what each and everyone of us is supposed to do.
Each and everyone of us -- male as well as female -- is supposed to dedicate everything we have to the achievement of that purpose.
And it is for the fulfillment of this mission -- this central obligation in our life -- that God has given us whatever he has: education; job; business; family; health; wealth; everything.
If we refuse to do that -- as most Muslims in this world have done and are continuing to do -- that is, if we renege on our promise to God and on our duty to do everything in our power to take the Qur'an to every home and heart in this world, then whatever blessings God has given us will all be taken away from us: one thing at a time.
And that is precisely what is happening in the world today. Muslims are on the run and Muslims are losing everything.
Review world history. And study current affairs. You will see how Muslims are losing, one after another, the blessings Allah had conferred upon them.
They have lost their place of honor and dignity in the world.
They have lost their "empires," if you can consider them a blessing.
They have lost their political power around the world.
They have lost major chunks of their lands. And they are fast losing whatever lands are still left in their possession.
They have become slaves in their own so-called "countries," while others around them enjoy the fruits of freedom.
Many of these so-called "countries" were created for them, at the spur of the moment, by their Colonial Masters, many of whom continue to be their Ex-Colonial Mentors, Minders and Handlers.
While the earth is unlocking its treasures on Muslim lands, the main beneficiaries and exploiters of that wealth are the former Colonial Masters of Muslims who used to formally own and occupy Muslim lands.
In other Muslim lands, such as the so-called Middle East, vast hordes of Muslims from around the world live and work in Modern Slave Plantations.
Without rights; without dignity or honor; and without voice, recourse or justice.
If much of this applies to Muslims as a global community and as an Ummah, the fate of individuals will not be different if they turn their back on Allah and the promise they made to him.
Individual Muslims who renege on their individual personal duty to take the Qur'an to every home and heart that needs it, will suffer the same fate: blessings given to them by Allah will be taken away from them, one by one.
It may be slow in coming for many or some of them. But come it surely will.
For, that is Allah's Law on Earth. And Allah's Law does not change.
The Qur’an says God is the one who created everything and showed and told it what to do and how to do it.
Rabbuna Alladhee A'twaa Kulla Shay-in Khalqwahu Thumma Hadaa.
So, everything in the world does precisely that. It does what it has been created, designed and programmed to do.
Except us humans – along with the Jinn, another species of God’s creation – who have been granted a measure of autonomy in our decision-making and in our actions. [...]
“Working for Allah is what you do for living – meaning, that is what you do as the overriding purpose and preoccupation of your life.
All else – your job, career, education, family, friends, everything – is part of the support network you need to be able to do Allah’s work.
What is Allah’s work? Let me try and explain, even though it is by no means an easy undertaking.
Or, maybe, on the other hand, it is the simplest and easiest thing to do. So here goes:
Working for Allah is living and dying for Allah, as the Qur’an quotes Prophet Abraham (May God Bless Him!) as saying.
Working for Allah is living every moment as if you see Allah and he sees you, as Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, said.
Working for Allah is helping and serving all of God’s creation everywhere and in every form.
Working for Allah is living and working in this world as if this life will last forever.
Working for Allah is preparing to leave this world as if it will happen tomorrow.
Working for Allah is doing all that Allah requires of you as if this were your last day on earth.
Working for Allah is honoring your parents; it is showing kindness, respect and affection to your spouse; and it is loving and providing the best for your children.
Working for Allah is loving your neighbor like yourself; and it is treating others how you would want them to treat you.
Working for Allah is offering a blessing and a greeting of peace and joy to everyone: those you know as well as those you don’t know.
Allah’s work is helping friends; forgiving enemies; and showing compassion to the afflicted and the needy, regardless of who or what they are.
Working for Allah is being generous almost to a fault; it is giving even when you have nothing much to give.
Working for Allah is feeding others when you go hungry yourself.
Allah’s work is educating the world and inviting people to God.
Working for Allah is ensuring peace, security, justice and stability around the world.
And it is fighting tyranny, injustice, cruelty and oppression against anyone anywhere.
And it is working tirelessly to make sure that God’s world is better tomorrow for everyone of God’s creation than it is today – and that means every Jew, Christian, Hindu and Muslim on the one hand and every bird, beast, fish and plant on the other hand.
It is for this that God created us: to work for him; to work for his world.
And it is to invite us all to do this – to work for him; to work for his world – that he sent his noble prophets, may Allah Bless Them All, into this world.
To paraphrase what God All-Mighty says in the Qur’an: “I created human beings so they would serve me.”
How can anyone – Muslim or non-Muslim – say no to something like this?
And how can anyone go wrong with a life full of commitment to something like this?
And anyone with any sense, if they won’t work for Allah, who will they work for?” (Dr. Pasha)
