வாழ்க்கையில் தீர்மானிக்கும் ஆற்றலையும் விடா முயற்சியையும் பெறுவது

  • The Muslim community will soon celebrate the new Hijri year of 1438. For the believers, they will not want to let time pass without having made improvements for their family and themselves. As they do their reflections, they realize that there are some unfulfilled goals and resolutions for the year. As they reflect further, they realized that this is due to their limitations and weaknesses as creations. No matter how strong, smart and wealthy they are, they are still bounded by boundaries and limitations.
  • For the believers, words like bored, disappointed, to sulk, or to give up, do not exist in their dictionary. Instead, every step forward is a success for him, because Allah will reward every effort. Allah determines whether or not he will reach the end, or attain his objective. That is the sweetness of the concept of tawakkal – it motivates one to rise after facing failures. A believer will plan his steps so that he will continue to move forward, even with the possibility of falling. In fact, he will feel that it is a big loss to not take any steps simply because he is haunted by the possibility of failure.
  • For the believers, he will Learn from the lives of the Prophets and Messengers, especially from the sirah of Rasulullah s.a.w. His life was full of challenges from the time he was born, yet he never used them as excuses not to move forward. He never gave up, whine and complain, nor blame others for the pain and trial he faced. Instead, Rasulullah s.a.w rose to change the situation and the environment that worked against him, and became a great leader attaining success that was granted by Allah.
