Working for Allah:
From Episodic to Consumed [Quote – 740]

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

www.IslamicSolutions.Com


Many of us good people, those who say or think we Work for Allah, are Episodists

Many of us.

We “work” when we are told to — when we have to; and when we are called upon — and then we go dormant. We go underground as it were. 

Basically, we just go where our heart is.

We wait for the right time and occasion to do the right thing: that is, to Work for Allah.

We wait for orders and invitations to stir off the couch — orders and calls from our local Mullas; from our so-called leaders; from whomever.

But Islam is about total absorption. 

Islam is about being totally consumed in and by your work — 24 hours; 7 days a week; 12 months a year; for all the years of your life that Allah grants you in this world.

And making everything else secondary to it.

END
