What Is Life All About?
When I woke up this morning, I asked myself, “What is life all about?”
I found the answer in my room. The fan said, “BE COOL.” The ceiling said, “AIM HIGH”. The window said, “SEE THE WORLD!” The clock said “EVERY MINUTE IS PRECIOUS.” The mirror said “REFLECT BEFORE YOU ACT.” The calendar said “BE UP TO DATE.” The door said “PUSH HARD FOR YOUR GOALS.” The floor said, “KNEEL DOWN AND PRAY!”
Life is about controlling your temperament. So getting angry too easily is not a good idea. Be cool, be more understanding. Over look people’s mistakes and help each other to improve. There’s always a solution to a problem. So don’t make it a big thing!
Life is about aiming high. Learn from people who are successful. You wanna ace in your exam, learn from those who have aced the exam before. And more importantly, you wanna ace your Akhirah life, you’ve gotta read more stories of the pious because they have aced their life of Akhirat!
Life is about how we value our time. Tick tock tick tock and every minute is precious. When you feel bored, instead of thinking of what you can do to ‘kill’ some time, why not read 1 SUBHANALLAH while playing football? Your garden (Jannah) will be decorated with 1 tree InsyaAllah. Or maybe LAA ILAHA ILLALLAH while jogging? Your sin is forgiven with every step you take. After all, you are a Muslim athletic person right?
Now girls....Mirror, mirror on the wall! Who’s the prettiest of all?! Give some attention to your internal beauty while you care for your external beauty. Have good character with parents, siblings, friends and co-workers means no BENCI, no DENGKI, no BALAS DENDAM, no MENGUMPAT and lots more!
Nokia N9? iPad 2 ? Samsung Galaxy tablet? Be up to date with the latest gadgets, fashion and music trends? Don’t worry about that so much people, those things get out-dated too quickly. Rather up date yourself with knowledge and ‘amal’ (practice). Are you still repeating the 4 QULS (Surah Ikhlas, Falaq, Naas, and Kaafirun) in 5 times Solah? Whoa….that’s so out dated!
Alright, you want to memorize few more Surahs? Now push hard for your goal. Learn 1 new surah every week, or if you can’t do that, memorize 1 surah in one month. Come on, we have 12 months in a year. If you are consistent, you’ll know 12 new surah every year, Subhanallah. This is not just a wishful thinking. Try and you’ll see the result.
Nothing is ever too hard when we ask help from Allah the Al-Mighty and Powerful. He will make impossible things become possible and unimaginable conditions become reality. So KNEEL DOWN AND PRAY to Allah and sincerely ask HIM to help us in every aspect of our sweet and sour life!
