Working for no god but Allah

Bismillah.

Alhamdulillah wa shukrulillah for this labor day holiday so we get to relax and reflect on our life as an employee and ponder on the One and Only Employer.

And again we recalled the daily affirmation which we had mentioned before: "I do God's work in peace and harmony." We are indeed grateful to be gainfully employed. We have had the experience of being unemployed for about three years so we know better how to appreciate and enjoy our present occupation. Alhamdulillah, with every hardship comes ease. 

As we examine our present state a little deeper, we realize we are happy that our worldly job allows us to have a better and more meaningful occupation, which is to blog about the people and a subject that we care about. We are thankful and grateful for this opportunity. And surely we draw inspirations from many people out there especially the habaib and the shuyukh  who labor tirelessly in the cause of Allah in a much greater way. May Allah keep our intentions pure and accept our little actions for we try to contribute in our own way. Mawlana Jalaluddin Rumi said, "Everyone has been made for some particular work and the desire for that work has been put in every heart."

Let's pray so that Allah would give us plenty of wealth through our work so that we could give away plenty to the people we care and love, all for the sake of Allah. He knows our intentions and our plans and in Him alone we harbor our hope for success. Verily He is the Most Generous Giver, He has let us score a 1 in our intention and we hope He will manifest the desired results and let us score a 10 for carrying out our intention. This deen is beautiful indeed.

Therefore, as a worker of Allah, we have every reason to be happy when we rise in the morning and leave home for work and then to come home and continue working. In this wonderful religion we believe in, every good thing we do may be considered as ibadah. So, let's plod on.

There is no power and no strength save with Allah, the High, the Great. Glory be to Allah for creating us and our actions.

وَٱللَّهُ خَلَقَكُمْ وَمَا تَعْمَلُونَ
"While Allah created you and that which you do."
As-Saffat:96

Work for no god but Allah
