It is fortunate to have a life with full of things to do. A friend of mine once asked, in a regretful tone;
“Kita ni, banyak masa kita spend utk orang. Tiap2 hari letih and takde masa utk diri sendiri”
I was partially agree, then replied;
“Yg mana lebih baik untukmu ya akh, bahawa setiap detik hidupmu terisi perkara yang baik, sedangkan ada orang yang bosan dan tidak tahu utk mengisi masanya”
It was, indeed a reply not to him, but to myself, as i was indeed, and still i am thinking that many things that i do are for others.
Is it for my family? My mother? My zaujah?
After all, it goes back, that everything is for myself. All the responsibilities are merely the means to achieve my objective. Sounds violent.
For the sake of Allah, we sacrifice everything. But most of us think of saving ourselves from anger and act to get rewarded.
