WHAT IS YOUR AIMS in life?
Do you have any aim in your life?
Or you don’t have any aim in your life? You live in aimless life?
As a human being you have to fix your aim in your life. You must have a clear target in your life.
Their will be no meaning, if your live in aimless in life. You don’t have any purpose to live. Your life will be useless, like animals live without brains.
And then what is your aim?
You want to be rich?
You want status in your life?
You want to run after women or men?
You want to satisfy your lust?
And so on. We can have so many aims in our life, but be very careful with your aims, so that your aims are accordance with the rule of God. In fact we can have many reasonable aims in our life as long as the aims are not contradict with God Will. So we have to forget any bad aims that contradict with the rules of God that will put us in a bad group as disobedient slave of God and in the end will landed us in the hell of fire.
In our strike to reach our goal we should always remember Allah, because our big aim is Allah-no other god than Allah. Our intentions to reach our goals are to fulfill such of our aim, and our aim is Allah.
So if you ask a wise person, what is his aim in life, surely he will straightly answer, “God is my aim”.
That means a true God, “no other god than God-Allah”.
When we said our aim is Allah, we should put our way straight to the point we want to reach, according to our faith or religious way of life. We don’t turn left, or right, but we go straight to the goal that we have set clearly before.
We have put our way straight to Allah.
To make Allah our aims mean we have to be sincere in everything we do, in our deeds, our speech and also in our intention. So that Allah may receive us as a sincere person, a faithful servant to Him.
“Say [oh Muhammad saw]: “Verily, my Salat [prayer], my sacrifice, my living, and my dying are for Allah, the Lord of the ‘Alamin [mankind, jinn and all that exist”.
“He has no partner. And of this I have been commanded, and I am the first of the Muslim”. Al-An’am:162-163.
The source of the true happiness is the love of Allah. Your wealth, your job as a big boss, your status in life, and your money can’t give you true love. You can’t buy true love with the world. You can’t buy heart with money. The heart only can buy heart. That is the true love. That is the pure love, and no materialist love.
It is true that, you can go to supper market, and buy any things that will make you happy, you can buy counterfeit love from the men or women you meet there and you also can buy false health from the shops that sold many medicine, vitamin, and body soaps and etc. It was not guarantee that you will get good benefit from all of that, instead it will destroy you in a short or long term.
You have to put in your heart that the law of Allah is the highest regulations to be practice in this world. No other law can compete with the law of Allah. The law of Allah is complete law. The law of Allah is permanent law that lasting fore ever.
Other law that made by men which did not accordance with the law of Allah is astray, and accursed. Such law is condemned by Almighty God.
Unfortunately some Muslim people, including their leaders, rejected the Islamic Law, because according to them it did not suitable to be practice in this world with multi race, religion and culture. They said Islamic Law is a stale law and ineffective law to be put in practice in today world.
Such people forget that what Allah had said in the al-Quran:
“And so judge [you O Muhammad saw.] among them by what Allah has revealed and follow not their vain desires, but beware of them lest they turn you [O Muhammad saw] far away from some of that which Allah has sent down to you. And if they turn away, then know that Allah’s Will is to punish them for some sins of theirs. And truly, most of men are fasiqun [rebellious and disobedient to Allah”.
“Do they then seek the judgement of [the days of] Ignorance? And who is better in judgement than Allah for a people who have firm Faith”.al-Maidah:49-50.
So we have to receive and practice in our daily life what is ordered by Allah to us. If we intently ignored it, Allah will punish us because of our selfishness.
Remember that Allah has Creator have the full right to set up any way for his creations. They should sincerely follow the regulation made by God to them. God Almighty only knows what is good and what is bad for all his creation. He knows what is right and what is wrong for them. So just follow the law off Allah in order to be happy in this world and the world after.
“It is not for a believer, man or woman, when Allah and His Messenger [saw], have decreed a matter that they should have any option in their decision. And whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger [saw], he has indeed strayed into plain error”.Al-Ahzab:36.
Remember that no other people will happy in this world and the world after than who believed and love God and live in true faith. They followed the way lead by Allah, they do the good things and avoid the bed ones.
They are the people who Allah said in the al-Quran, “Whoever work righteous - whether male or female- while he [or she] is a true believer [of Islamic Monotheism] verily, to him We will give a good life [in this world with respect, contentment and lawful provision], and We shall pay them certainly a reward in proportion to the best of what they used to do [i.e.Paradise in the Hereafter]An-Nahl:67.
Everything we did is for Allah.
We ate for Allah.
We slept for Allah.
We woke up for Allah.
We married for Allah.
We divorced for Allah.
We loved for Allah.
We hate for Allah.
We fought for Allah.
We pieced for Allah.
All is for Allah.
We saw Allah everywhere.
We saw Allah outside.
We saw Allah inside.
Allah is the Greatest.
We loved Allah.
Love Allah means we are ready any times to sacrifice our self for Allah. We are ready to banish our wants if our wants are competing to the rules of Allah. We only hold to every things that will bring us more close to Allah, and avoid that any thing or place that will put us distant from Allah.
One of the companions of Prophet PUBH went to war with Prophet PUBH. With a sword in his hand he bravely fought with the enemies of Islam, and happily recited this lyric:
“Please come to Allah without provisions
Except piety and good deeds,
Be patient in holy war for Allah
It is because all the provisions would be last.
It is only devotion, righteous deeds and useful guidance will remain”.
He fought to the end of his life-martyred.
