Good Children of Good People
[Quote – 289]

Quote-Unquote: Dr. Pasha on Islam,
Muslims and the World

www.IslamicSolutions.Com


“To the children of the good people who have decided to work for Allah, here is something I want to say to them: Work hard to move your own lives and this work forward.

Do not use this work as a means of personal advancement in life in any form or fashion.

Do not use any part or aspect of this work as a business or an element in a career path.

And also, try to adhere to the teachings of Allah’s Deen to the extent you can and to the best of your ability.

And try not to play games with Allah’s Deen at any time and in any form or fashion. For, you have no chance of winning.

Your parents are good people. They gave you the best they could.

And they worked very hard to put you on Allah’s path.

But Allah has put your life and your destiny in your own hands. And not in your parents’ hands.

That means you will have to make your own choices. And you will have to make your own decisions.

And I hope and pray you make the right ones.

Allah bless you.” (Dr. Pasha)
