Aim For A Life That Is Full of Purpose – Islamic Perspective by  Hasnain Rajabali

The first level is to ask Who am I?
Why am I here What’s my goal in life? You know how many
people don’t bother to discuss that. You see them doing the dumbest things, using
the foulest language. You find them running for the most mundane
material things in life. You’re looking at them, like are you serious? you really
yeah my dream is to have that, and I’ll kill to have it. I said that’s
your dream? That’s what you’ve concluded your purpose in this short world? That
you’re living in this short life? You know how short this life is? If you’re 90 years of age which is a long period. 90 Years old person. 30 of the 90 Years the person was sleeping. You are left with 60 30 of those 60 you were busy working, you
left with 30 years if you and I live to be 90 most people don’t live to be 90
the average lifespan is 70 so bring it down to 20 years.
You mean I pursued all these dreams for 20 years and if I ask you for that 20
years give me a videotape of what is your most profound moments in life, maybe
a hundred hours, 200 hours you mean this world was only worth 200 hours for me? Allah says YEAH. بَلْ تُؤْثِرُونَ الْحَيَاةَ الدُّنْيَا وَالْآخِرَةُ خَيْرٌ وَأَبْقَىٰ You love this world
the Hereafter is what’s forever. You are fooling yourselves into thinking
something’s important, but when a person need to sit and say yes
why am I here? You know I speak in universities, I get non-muslim
audiences, after my lectures you see youth come to me and say wow never thought this way! you’re right! I said look I’m not here to
proselytize you. I’m not here to make you Muslim I’m here to wake you up
you choose your own way. You’re smart enough you are sharp enough.
you know! you’ve been planted with some of the greatest gifts you can ever
imagine and I’m here to strike them and you strike me too. Let’s wake each other
up there’s a purpose in this life. The guy says to me you’re right. I said take
account يَتْلُو عَلَيْهِمْ آيَاتِهِ Look in the skies? Why is all this happening? What is
all the signs why do people behave the way they do. Observations! Basic
observation will lead us to so much understanding. That’s why the Prophet
says man arafa nafsa faqad arafa rabbah. The one who knows himself will know
his lord indeed that’s first

  1. If you want to know, your purpose in your life… Just read Quran, in any language that makes you Understand …

  2. Sleep should always be devotion to God.
    Work should be religiously sound and devoted to God.
    People live for the sake of far less than four days worth of hours and the non-religious may live a way because of a few moments instead of to be their best for every moment.
    Being awake about sleep can be the easiest way to start a purpose driven life.
