Commitment to La Ilaha Illa Allah! [Quote - 824]

Published Categorised as Quote-Unquote, Quote-Unquote – Book IX (801-900)

A Muslim's -- any Muslim's -- Commitment is La Ilaha Illa Allah

And that means putting all other Commitments in life below one's Commitment to Allah and his Rasul, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam.

And that means Allah's Work takes priority and precedence over everything else: job, education, family, fun, friends, health, wealth, everything.

But for a Muslim who understands Islam, the two commitments are one and the same: 

(1) Commitment to Allah and his Work and 
(2) Commitment to Life and its Requirements.

Therefore, those Working for Allah should train themselves to define their life and identity by this work, Allah's Work, not define this work -- Allah's Work -- by their situations in life and the complications and needs that life unleashes upon them, both good and otherwise.

When they can do that, it is only then that the Qur'an truly begins to make sense. Otherwise, it is only a mysterious book, in a foreign language, and often in bad English, from beyond the skies, from another world.
