Self-Reflection to Build a Successful Community

  • The hustle and bustle of modern day life has had a costly effect on “time”. “Time” has since become very valuable - it is currently more treasured than money or wealth. Those who are smart will never waste a minute of their time. However, for those who are negligent, days will pass without much productivity.
  • The character of Rasulullah s.a.w. taught us the importance of taking time to reflect upon ourselves. By studying the hadiths of Rasulullah s.a.w., we will understand that self-reflection should be a crucial value upheld by every mukmin such that it shapes his or her thought process. It is not something that is pushed to year’s end when one takes stock of his actions.
