Burning out for others!

بسم الله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله

It is good at times to STOP and THINK.

Every Friday millions of Muslims worldwide recite Surah al Kahf.

We will be doing ourselves a huge favour if we pause & think on ayah no. 6

فَلَعَلَّكَ بَاخِعٌ نَّفْسَكَ عَلَىٰ آثَارِهِمْ إِن لَّمْ يُؤْمِنُوا بِهَـٰذَا الْحَدِيثِ أَسَفًا

Then perhaps you would kill yourself through grief over them, [O Muhammad], if they do not believe in this message, [and] out of sorrow. (18: 6)

In education sector, we hear a lot about Empathy.

Here was a man who used to get burn out for others! Burning out to benefit others was his second nature. 

He used to burn out for others’ success to such an extent that Almighty Allah had to interfere and caution him about that.

Our Messenger did not burn out in amassing wealth and increasing the bank balance!

He was a people’s Prophet. Full of care and concern for people’s welfare

Peace, Mercy and Blessings of Allah be upon this glorious Messenger of Allah. The Messenger who lived and died bringing peace and happiness in people’s life.

Prophet Muhammad (sal lal laahu alaihi wa sallam) showed us the way: It is Sunnah to go out of the way in order to help others. Guide mankind. Save humanity from the disgrace of this world and the Hereafter.

We are the followers of such an amazing Messenger of Allah! To what extent we follow this Sunnah: Burn out for others?!!

May Allah guide us all in the footsteps of His beloved Messenger.

Baarakallaahu Feekum.
