Ramadan Session: making Impact

How improved or important are we as humans? What kind of agent are we to the Ummah? How are we seen or perceived by our fellow being? What are we doing to praise Allah within ourselves for others to learn from?

It is important as human or as muslims to make positive impacts in our environment, our work place, the society and especially within the family. It is understandable that not everyone will like us, not everyone will like what we do, but in whatever aspect, let us be good to the Glory of Almighty Allah

We should be human being of positive impact not just human being of just making a living in this worldly life. There are several ways we can make impact:

Ordinarily, if we are seen by someone, and our presence brings joy, laughter and happiness to the place we enter, that alone is grace on it’s own, that alone is a positive impact. Meaning our appearance brings goodness to people and brings smile to their heart. When we are seen, Islam is seen in us, not just by word of mouth or by what we wear, our presence should show that, as it brings a certain freshness to the gathering we find ourselves

Our manner of approach, how do we talk to people, do we say the truth or we tell lies. These are what makes up the page of man in Islam, and it makes a lot of impact. A truthful person will always be respected and want to be associated with, for such person is embedded with integrity.

We should be good to anyone and everyone, even those that are not good to us. We cannot pay evil for evil, rather, good for evil and let us leave everything to God.

We should be dutiful to our parents and families. Our presence should not be feared at home within family members while we are very nice to people outside. Our family deserves our joy, our smile and our happiness.

And establish prayer and give zakat and whatever good you put forward for yourselves, you will find it. with Allah.

أُولَٰئِكَ يُسَارِعُونَ فِي الْخَيْرَاتِ وَهُمْ لَهَا سَابِقُونَ

2-Surah Al-Baqarah ( The Cow ) 110

So whoever does an atom’s weight of good will see it.

فَمَن يَعْمَلْ مِثْقَالَ ذَرَّةٍ خَيْرًا يَرَهُ

22-Surah Al-Hajj ( The Pilgrimage ) 77

The good deed and evil deed are not equal, repel the evil with one which is better, i.e (Allah orders the faithful believer to be patient at the time of anger and to excuse those who treat them badly), then verily he, between whom you there was enmity, (will become) as though he was a close friend.

Quran 41:34

May Almighty Allah make us positively impact people and grant us the Grace to be good to not just ourselves, our family but also the society at large.

Salam Alaekum Waramotullah Wabaraktuh
