Serve God at Least as Well as You Serve Yourself
[Quote – 156]

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

www.IslamicSolutions.Com


“For those of you who claim to be good Muslims, and working for Allah as it were, here is a test of your moorings and your bearings: I mean where you come from and where you are going.

You need to make sure that the time, effort, energy, resources, as well as the care and concern, you spend on what you say you do for Allah – in worshipping God and in serving humanity and the rest of God’s creation – are all as good or better than what you may be spending on what you think are your own personal affairs, such as your family, job, entertainment or business.” (Dr. Pasha)
