Just sharing a thought…


We live in a time where if a person talks about implementing one command of Allah & His prophet Muhammad s.a.w.w. then people remind that person of all the other 100 commands that that person (including themselves) don’t follow…  Thus ignoring the one step towards betterment just because they didnt take any step in the past…

Is that how betterment comes?  Overnight & 100%?  Or you start of by taking one step & praying Allah to help you take next step?

For all i know & feel, people who neglect your advice of taking one step by telling you other untaken steps (which are not even relevant at that point) are those who dont want to listen to their conscience… And likewise, if a person feels offended when people respond this way on his advice, means that he too is just trying to pretend to be good and not really intends for betterment…

In my opinion, if you are giving a good advice in light of Quran & Sunnah, then do it b/c you sincerily want to be a better Muslim & not just b/c of selfish reason… & u will realize that when you do it that way, you will (after being opposed) just pray for them & for urself & for Allah to help you be better nevertheless & guide them too…

Likewise, remember, in the end everyone is responsible for their actions… Your job is to suggest, whether someone acts on it or not is entirely their choice…

As for people who defend themselves for not doing right thing by pointing out hundreds of other wrongs in the one who is correcting you, well…guess what?  It still won’t make you right… what’s wrong will stay wrong whether you defend it or not…

So, go ahead believers… If you find it hard to practice Islam just because people remind you of all the wrongs in you when you try to do right… Then don’t worry… Remember, in the end it is what ALLAH thinks that matters the most… So keep moving forward, even if it is one step at a time… Dont mind the critics since your moving forward just makes them feel more guilty deep down… Remind yourself that as long as you are moving a step forward, thats all that you need to do and focus on in order to reach the top most position of a believer…
