Let us Live for Allah

Salaam, I hope everyone is in the best of health and in the state of ever increasing iman. Ustadh Khurram Murad (rh) was a great scholor, thinker, and an intellectual of Islam. He has excellent inspiring works. Amoung them is a book called In the Early Hours. I am currently reading the book and it is very hard to put down. It has such benifical advice and practial tips to develop that relation with our Lord that we need and desire so much. On the back cover Ustadh Khurram Murad so eloquently summarizes what it means to be a Muslim and to actually live in the obediance of Allah (swt). Below is the small excerpt, Inshallah take some time and read it. The heart needs to beat…and so we stay alive. Wsalaam

 

“Let us live for Allah. Let us love and like what he likes; let us dislike what he dislikes and hate what he hates. Let their be no terrotories carved up and no frontiers set up in serving him. Let us passionatley involve ourselves in our society to do his will, but still passionatley let our hearts yearn for his pleasure. Similarly, let the life of the Prophet live again in our lives. Let his message, his conduct, his goals, be our message, our conduct, and our goals. So, also, let nothing motivate us but an intense longing to please our Lord in the next world, and let that expectation give a decisive shape to our life here. The hope of a meaningful future must lead us to confront the risks and overcome the tribulations that lie in living by his will in the totality of our existance. We, as Muslims, have but one option: to strive to change the world accordind to the model given to mankind by the Prophet Muhammad, blessings and peace be upon him.
