Religion is not something that stops you from all the luxuries you can get in your life but it tells you a pattern to how to make the most of your life that can make this world loving heaven for you.
When life offers you temporary comforts and all the benefits that you could have asked for in your life and on the other hand your conscience and your soul is connected to your creator then apparently it’s not easy to pick one.
Recently, a Pakistani man has set an example for the whole Muslim Ummah that no matter what this temporary world offers you, you should always opt for something that is way better than this material life. One should not forget that it is He who has created the world and we have to return to Him one day so why not prepare for the actual eternal life that is far better than this delusional limited time.
The pure quality of a devoted Muslim!
The Pakistani man, who is serving as a cleaner in the Holy Kaaba, the most religious place for every Muslim, due to his hard work and devotion was voted as the most diligent cleaner of the month. He was offered a handsome reward by the Administration of Al-Haram Mosque but rather he declined the prize and requested to offer Prayer inside Hijr-e-Ismail (Stone of Ismail). The management of Al-Haram Mosque without any second thought granted his wish and allowed him to pray inside Hijr-e-Ismail which is normally closed for the general public.
This is by far the most powerful image surfacing on the internet showing the ultimate satisfaction and peace that one can feel by getting his pious wish fulfilled.
Indeed as Allah says in the Holy Quran “He (Allah) honor whom He pleases and abases whom He pleases”
May Allah give us all strength to act upon the teachings of the Holy Quran and to follow the footsteps of Our beloved Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (S.A.W). Ameen!
