Recommended Posts

BY Mohammad Rafiq Etesame


         The holy Quran reveals,” Say, [O Muhammad], “Shall we [believers] inform you of the greatest losers as to [their] They are] those    whose effort is lost in worldly life, while they think that they are doing well Those are the ones who disbelieve in the verses of their Lord and in [their] meeting Him, so their deeds have become worthless; and We will not assign to them on the Day of Resurrection any importance.  That is their recompense – Hell – for what they denied and [because] they took My signs and My messengers in ridicule. Indeed, those who have believed and done righteous deeds – they will have the Gardens of Paradise as a lodging, wherein they abide eternally.


They will not desire from it any transfer.

         Say, “If the sea were ink for [writing] the words of my Lord, the sea would be exhausted before the words of my Lord were exhausted, even if We brought the like of it as a supplement. “AL- kahf 103].         Also”


surely humanity is in ˹grave˺ loss, except those who have faith, do good, and urge each other to the truth, and urge each other to perseverance” (Al- Asr).       These verses reveal that who are the greatest losers of the world? They are those whose effort is lost in worldly life, while they think that they are doing well….   As we see in the routine life that when the child is young, their parent start thinking that how will become our child a successful in his future?

       Whether he should be a doctor, an engineer, or a    successful business man?   Usually people have a standard for their successful ness as…

       if a film maker makes a film and if it hits to the box office and becomes a block buster, then he is very happy and sees himself a super successful one, and if an industrialist makes the products bestselling in the market, then he is a success one, and if a singer’s sings   go

viral, then he is also a success one and so and so… 

                      While according to the Islamic point of view the really a successful one is that who should be a Muslim at first and follow the good example (uswae  hasana)  of the holy Prophet PBUH,  then whatever he will  make any, plan for his good future,  he will be a  successful   Because the holy Prophet PBUH,   guided his ummah in every walk of life. For example, he was an imam of the masjid,and the commander of the army, a     successful business man and a lovey husband and father and  so forth…             The holy Quran reveals,” verily, in the Apostle of God you have a good example for everyone who looks forward [with hope and awe] to God and the Last Day, and remembers God. unseeingly. Al-Ahzab (The Confederates) 33:21)


           After then whatever he will make any plan by the   righteous   way, Allah will help him as the holy Quran reveals

,” And

so, when they are about to reach the end of their waiting-term, either retain them in a fair manner or part with them in a fair manner.  And let two persons of [known] probity from among your own community witness [what you have decided]; and do yourselves bear true witness before God: thus are admonished all who believe in God and the Last Day

. And unto everyone who is conscious of God, He [always] grants a way out [of unhappiness], and provides for him in a manner beyond all expectation; and for everyone who places his trust in God He [alone] is enough. Verily, God always attains to His purpose: [and] indeed, unto everything has God appointed its [term and] measure”              At-Talaq (The Divorce) 65:2)             These verses reveal that Allah provides the faithful belvier in a manner beyond all expectation, and provision does not mean only the daily bread, but it means all his fundamental needs and whatever he requires necessary things as per permissible in Shariah.   So, the really successful are those Muslims who follow the commands of Allah and His messenger in all the way of life, may Allah give us taufeeq to do so, Ami
