For the past ten years working in Islamic work, dawah and and marketing – I’ve seen a lot of people give up on their efforts because they thought they themselves aren’t worthy or aren’t good enough.
On the flip side, the people I’ve seen that have pressed on and been successful in their projects have told me it isn’t whether not we’re worthy, rather it’s whether or not what we’re trying to achieve is worthy of us in the sight of Allah.
Today I heard someone say, “If you reach for the moon and stars, you wont end up with a handful of mud.”
I thought for a second – what then would be the affect if we were to instead reach for Jannah?
Just some food for thought.
May Allah-swt give us the tawfeeq to for His sake and earn his mercy on the day of judgment.
