بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
الْيَوْمَ نَخْتِمُ عَلَى أَفْوَاهِهِمْ وَتُكَلِّمُنَا أَيْدِيهِمْ وَتَشْهَدُ أَرْجُلُهُمْ بِمَا كَانُوا يَكْسِبُونَ
“That Day, We will seal over their mouths, and their hands will speak to Us, and their feet will testify about what they used to earn.”
[Al-Qur’an –Surah Ya-Sin:65]
We can make any action an ibaadah (worship), by having taqwa (fear of Allah). Taqwa means remembering at all times that Allah is watching us, and that we are answerable only to Him about our deeds.
Ibaadah does not only involve salah and tasbih (glorifying Allah سبحانه وتعالى ), although both are a major part of it, but obeying Him in our dealings with people as well. Since Islam is a way of life, it gives instructions about not only how to fulfill the rights of Allah (سبحانه وتعالى), but of people as well.
I think in my life so far, it has not been all ibaadah; there have been instances where I have taken decisions based on what I wanted, rather than what Allah(سبحانه وتعالى) asked of me.
In the immediate future, as Tafheem-e-Deen (Understanding Religion) course continues, Insha’Allah, I want to put in my best efforts not just in tests etc, but also in implementing what we learn everyday.
As I go on for further studies, Insha’Allah. I want to make sure it’s something that will benefit my akhira as well as dunya, rather than only my dunya.
Further , I hope that I can raise my own children to be good Muslims, Insha’Allah, and be a good daughter, sister, wife and mother myself. I also hope to teach the Qur’an, and contribute in any way that I can in spreading Islam, Insha’Allah.
