Islam is a religion of Allah and beloved Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)with his powerful personality, character, and best leadership qualities helped the people of the world when they have no hopes and they were living a life in darkness. He was a light in this dark world to entire humanity. He enlightened the lives of people with the education of Islam and teaches us peace, prosperity and enlightenment. He was sent as a blessed Messenger in this world from Almighty Allah. As per poetic lyrics of Allama Iqbal“Ki Muhammad(SAW) Se Wafa Tune To Hum Tere Hain…Ye Jahaan Cheez Kya Hai Looh o Qalam Tere Hain”. We have to follow the teachings of Holy book of Qur’an(The Word of Allah) and Prophet Muhammad ( PBUH) to live a life of peace, prosperity, happiness, justice and in best way for service to humanity through pleasure of Almighty Allah. Following the Qur’an(The Word of Allah) and teachings of Prophet Muhammad ( PBUH) would serve as an ideal motivation and guide in fulfilling the true purpose of life and fulfilling our dreams and aspirations in this world in a rightful, truthful, justiful and humanity-serving way. I believe if our motivational speeches are delivered in the light of Allah and the teachings of our beloved Prophet Muhammad(PBUH), they would have a revolutionary impact in the lives of people. I believe in the fact that if you have to touch the skies in your life here and hereafter, you have to read the lessons/teachings/books that have been endowed upon us from the skies (Asmani kitabein) besides the books of worldly knowledge. “Sabaq Phir Pad Sadaqat Ka, Adaalat Ka, Shajaat Ka…Liya Jayega Tuj Se Kaam Duniya Ki Imamat Ka” ( You have to read a lesson of truthfulness, justice and bravery in order to lead the world and positively revolutionize the lives). A professional’s main goal must be to seek the pleasure of Allah through whatever graces and blessings he has been endowed upon by Almighty. The noble work you do for the pleasure of Almighty Allah and for the benefit of humanity is always worth full and a way towards seeking HIM.
Allah has blessed you with the amazing potential and so He has found you to potentiate that noble work. Take it as a blessing from Almighty Allah and in His pleasure – find your pleasure and be positive. To realise success in your any dream – Faith in Almighty Allah and Faith in Self are important. But don’t ever let your Faith in Self overpower your Faith in Almighty SWT. If it happens so, you may land into trouble as your Faith in Self has roots and control from your Faith in Almighty Allah. Remember! When the work you do brings you closer to Almighty Allah and build in you strong faith towards Him, do realise that you are in right direction and preaching towards enlightenment and success. Moreover, to realise a dream you will have both right and wrong direction to fore. It depends upon you which one you choose. But ensuring right direction to a dream will bring you success as well as make you fulfil the true purpose of life (pleasure of Almighty Allah). If you ensure wrong direction to your dream – you will fail to accomplish the true purpose of life. It will be worth to mention here that you will be able to give right direction to a dream by imbibing true guidance, good character and values – by following the teachings of Almighty Allah and His beloved Prophet (SAW). In Islam, we believe that following the teachings of Holy book of Qur’an (The Word of Allah) and our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW) serve as a guiding light to live life of peace, prosperity, happiness, justice and in best way for service to humanity through pleasure of Almighty Allah. Following the Qur’an (The Word of Allah) and teachings of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) serve as an ideal motivation and guide in fulfilling the true purpose of life and fulfilling our dreams and aspirations in this world in a rightful, truthful and humanity-serving way.
