Success Requires Sacrifice

  • We all know how difficult it is to make sacrifices. Putting others before ourselves is surely not easy. If letting go of our wants and giving up our desire for comfort are already hard, imagine how tough it is to sacrifice our needs for the sake of helping and making others happy and satisfied. Nevertheless, this is the path towards success.

     

     

  • This quality is heavily emphasized by Islam. Our religion does not focus on one’s individual success or personal happiness alone. In fact, it teaches us to encourage others to achieve communal success together, as a society, especially during challenging times. Many of us are currently in need – of support and advices, among many others.

     

     

  • This is a reminder for us – that the success of others is a form of our own success. And it needs a lot of work and sacrifice. Success does not come knocking on our doors without us putting in the required efforts and hard work.
