وَابْتَغِ فِيمَا آتَاكَ اللَّهُ الدَّارَ الْآخِرَةَ ۖ وَلَا تَنسَ نَصِيبَكَ مِنَ الدُّنْيَا ۖ وَأَحْسِن كَمَا أَحْسَنَ اللَّهُ إِلَيْكَ ۖ وَلَا تَبْغِ الْفَسَادَ فِي الْأَرْضِ ۖ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُحِبُّ الْمُفْسِدِينَ
But seek, through that which Allah has given you, the home of the Hereafter; and [yet], do not forget your share of the world. And do good as Allah has done good to you. And desire not corruption in the land. Indeed, Allah does not like corrupters.” | QS 28:77
Picture this in your head, imagine investing all of your time, effort, money into an investment that is guaranteed to go under. That would be crazy! Lord The Almighty calls us to be balanced, and to invest into an investment that is 100% guaranteed and everlasting.
It teaches us to take our share of the #Dunya (earthly life), but not to let this Dunya take over us — where we forget about our true purpose in life and the ultimate goal of #Jannah (garden — hereafter).
Surat Şād (The Letter “Saad”) – سورة ص
رَبُّ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَا الْعَزِيزُ الْغَفَّارُ
Lord of the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them, the Exalted in Might, the Perpetual Forgiver.” | QS 38:66
May He put ease of our today’s endeavors.
