Allah says in Quran:
And I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me. (Chapter:51 Verse: 56)
In a Hadees, Prophet Mohammed told:
Allah says, if the son of Adam (Man) make himself free for remembering (worshipping) Allah, then Allah will fill his mind with ghina (richness)! And if the son of Adam is not ready for this Allh will keep his mind in a busy state! And Allah will never take away the state of Faqr (Poverty) from you.
I was astonished to hear this Hadees in a class by br. Ahmed Kutty Madani.
We are all busy on a materialistic world. With all what we do, we are still concerned of our future! Was this Hadees of Prophet (SA) particulary about this era? Remember our childhood where our parents and grant parents were very much relaxed compared to our time! And the reason.......?
Let us get the lesson from this Hadees and make ourselves free for worshipping Allah, the very reason behind our creation!
Once we free ourselves, Allah has promised that he will fill our mind with ghina (richness)!
......and upon Allah the believers should rely. (Holy Quran 3:122)
Those who have believed and whose hearts are assured by the remembrance of Allah. Unquestionably, by the remembrance of Allah hearts are assured. (Holy Quran 13:28)
