Emulating Rasulullah's Work Ethic

  • Islam encourages its followers to strive and find sustenance in life. As Muslims, we need to realize that working is an obligation that has to be carried out. It is through working that we are able to fulfil our responsibilities such as providing for our wives, children and parents. Additionally, we are also able to perform acts of worship such as making zakat and donations.

  • Hence, the work we do must be carried out with honesty. Every task we perform in order to find halal sustenance, is a form of servitude towards Allah s.w.t. In fact, Rasulullah s.a.w. himself has shown us several work ethics for us to emulate. Therefore, the khutbah today will share several guidelines that we can gather from the sunnah of the Prophet s.a.w. to incorporate in our working life
