The letter A

Assalamualaikum wbt my dear sisters fillah, 
may all of you in the pink of health and iman. 

Alhamdulillah, all praises to our Lord who has give us chance to life in this world, for us to feel and enjoy living in His deen as our way of life. Peace be upon our beloved Prophet Rasulullah SAW, the Last and the Leader of all Messengers that conveyed the message of Lailahailallah, until it reached us although thousand years had passed by.

Sisters fillah,
Alhamdulillah we are born as Muslim and our parents are practising Muslim since they were young. We are surrounded by the Islamic culture that encourages us to learn the Quran, respect others and practise good manners. However, have we ever wondered that the way of life that we live today is merely because of our surroundings? Everyone do the same thing, so we don’t want to do different. It is a cliché as a human being psychologically to follow the flow of the majority in a particular community.

It doesn’t mean that it’s wrong to follow the crowd, but it may, in a significant way, affects the reason why we have to do such practise ie solah, fasting in the month of Ramadhan, pay for zakat and other obligatory ibadah.

Allah SWT says in the Quran in Surah Az-Zariyat verse 56,
We have not created jinns and mankind except to worship Me

Based on this short but meaningful verse, we have been told by Allah the purpose of life in this temporary world: To worship Him, the Only One God.

Yes, I believe in God and you believe in God’s existence as well. I pray, I fast and you do these things too. I read the Quran and wear my hijab, and you also do the same alhamdulillah. But who told you to do these at the first place? And you practise because you’re being told to practise or because you know that you need to practise?

Subhanallah. These are among the big questions that we should concern about. I’m not asking you to not do ibadah if you’re unsure why do you have to do it, but i’m calling you to know the purpose of doing it.

And it begins with the letter A.
