When we decide that we want to live differentlyâ€¦with different standards and scales. We force ourselves to see things in a very special way…
We might be on the contrary of the whole world…or the society around us…But we know deep inside that our choice is the greatest…yet people manage to get to us…to shake our basis…life doesn’t like extraordinary very muchâ€¦people want what is common and convenient..
That is so general…right??!!
Let us try to be more specific…MONEY…
When it comes to money…people are slaves…of money and sometimes of people who own it…I’ve seen that most of my life and it actually got me sickâ€¦
We call them A class peopleâ€¦and the A goes for whoever has more than a million up till several billions…And I’ve seen those too…Well I won’t write again about them…no…I’ll write about precious people with more treasures than any amount of millionsâ€¦
And to set the right scale…i have to quote from the famous story that was mentioned in the quranâ€¦
Surat…3abas:” The prophet (PBUH) had what was higher than great manners…Allah (SWT) said soâ€¦and the prophet was so kind and loving that he really lived his life with a main purpose…he wanted to save his people and take them towards the light of Islam…he wanted to guide them away from worshipping statues and into worshipping Allah the almighty. And he was always busy working for that.so one day he managed to gather some of the “A_ CLaSS” people of mecca…and finally got to have a chance to talk to them about Islamâ€¦When at the same time there was a poor Muslim blind and old man who was searching for the prophet from one place to another because he wanted to learn more about Islam and loved to hear the prophet..He loved clearing and purifying his heart from the prophet’s words. Finally he found him in meeting with the high class peopleâ€¦the prophet (PBUH) slightly frowned and thought: no ya Abdullah ibn maktoum…not nowâ€¦he didn’t say it…he only felt that this man is already a Muslim and that he wanted to concentrate with the others whom will be a great asset in attracting more people towards Islam if they became onesâ€¦â€¦.
So. What happened???
ALLAHâ€¦GAVE US THIS GREAT SURA OF THE QURAN TO TEACH USTHE RIGHT SCALEâ€¦
And for the first and only time in all the quran…he blamed the prophet (PBUH) AND TOLD HIMâ€¦.NOâ€¦FOR THE FIRST AND ONLY TIME!!
Allah sob7anaho said in the meaning of the aya:Do you concentrate with the ones who don’t want your religion and neglect who came to you for purificationâ€¦NO…This is a reminderâ€¦
So this blind old poor man was better in Allah’s scale than the A-class people from !!
And in a prophet’s sayingâ€¦ (PBUH) saidâ€¦it could be the prayers of a dusty, uncombed man that Allah wouldn’t refuse!!
Soâ€¦money is a way. A tool to make things better. For us and for othersâ€¦
But it’s not a goal nor a standardâ€¦it won’t make you a better manâ€¦and if all people bow to your money that would worth nothing if you had a crooked heartâ€¦
