Islam Means Playing to Win [Quote 573]

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

www.IslamicSolutions.Com


If you are a Muslim, you must always Play to Win

And win fair and square, following all the accepted rules and norms.

Not participating in the Game of Life is not an option for you, if you are a Muslim.

Nor can you, as a Muslim, cheat and deceive and cut corners.

Nor can you Play Life halfheartedly or haphazardly. You must always enter and Do Life with full gusto, vigor and interest.

And your object must always be to win. 

Of course, in every game, including the Game of Life, winning and losing comes directly from Allah, no matter how perfectly predictable or unpredictable a situation may be. But giving every moment, and every single Play of Life, your best is your obligation as a Muslim.

So, always bear this mind:

As a Muslim, you cannot sit on the sidelines when the Game of Life is being played all around you. 

Nor can you, as a Muslim, enter the Game of Life with an attitude of indifference and lethargy.

So, go Play Life with full vigor, and expect to win. What comes out at the end is not in your hands. 

Nothing ever was. And nothing ever will be. 

But don’t let that get to you. For, nothing is in anyone else’s hand either. And your opponents in the great big Game of Life are just as helpless as you are. For, nothing is in their hand, just as nothing is in your hand. 

Everything is in God’s hands. And it will always be.

And it is always he who decides who will win and who will lose. 

So, as a Muslim, you have absolutely nothing to lose. 

So, go play hard and Play to Win.

END
