How People Got It Backwards
[Quote 378]

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

www.IslamicSolutions.Com


“Allah made people to work for him.

Allah says to them: Work for me; that is why I made you; and I will take care of all your needs.

Most people seem to flip this proposition on its head. They seem to say: OK, I am going to spend all my time, and all my energy, and all my resources working for myself and my family.

And then, when I get a little bit of free time, once a week or once a year, maybe, or once in a lifetime, I will spend that time working for Allah.

Hello-o!

And then everyone complains — and that includes the Muslims — that the world is the way it is.” 

(Dr. Pasha)
