Next question Assalamualaikum I'm Sophia and a 15 year old from Pakistan. My question is, if our purpose in life is only to worship Allah, then why should we spend most of our lives studying and trying to get degrees and looking for jobs? We can just become an Imam or a Mufti and spend our life serving Allah. Most people spend most of their lives studying and trying to become engineers, etc. Why is that when we should work harder on worshiping Allah and preparing ourselves for the next world? Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran in surah Daria chapter 51 verse number 56, one ah hello to Jin navall insularity Abu doon, that I have not created the jinn and mankind except worship

00:00:49--> 00:00:49

me

00:00:50--> 00:00:58

The purpose of the creation of the human beings it is to worship Allah subhanaw taala we human beings, we have a free will,

00:01:01--> 00:01:03

we can either do the right or we can either do the wrong.

00:01:05--> 00:01:20

So the movie engage in the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala The more we do a bada we will get reward from Allah subhanaw taala and in the Hereafter, we will enter Paradise and Allah subhanaw taala same sort of chap number 28 was number 77

and

00:01:29--> 00:01:49

do not forget your share in this world, we should also not forget this world totally. And we have the example of our beloved Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. Even he was involved in Dawa but at the same time, he used to do the daily activities, the daily things to own his bread and butter.

00:01:50--> 00:02:32

Therefore the best profession for any human being, it is to convey the message of Islam to the non Muslims as Allah subhanaw taala season so in chapter 16 was from 125 although lscb lira bakeable hekman was in our Little Havana wotja it has an invite to the way of dialogue with wisdom and beautiful teachings and argue with them and reason with them in the ways that our best and most gracious, Allah subhanaw taala say in sort of facilite chapter 41 was the mortality one man x and older men men die Allah La y milazzo alayhi wa called indian indian muslimeen who is better in speech than the one who calls others towards Allah subhanaw taala works righteousness and sees that

00:02:32--> 00:02:33

I am a Muslim.

00:02:35--> 00:02:38

So the best profession is the profession of a guy.

00:02:39--> 00:02:57

And the best people are those people who are full time dies. Those who dedicate their lives for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala as Allah subhanaw taala since rollin ronchamp number three was 204 Walter comin Come on materia doornail Hi, Wei mo una bella roof when honan and Mancha what

00:02:59--> 00:03:19

led that arise out a few a band of people calling towards what is good, and joining what is right and forbidding what is wrong, they are the ones to attain Felicity. Today in our community, we have full time doctors full time engineers, how many full time diaries Do we have. So, the best profession is the professional for die.

00:03:20--> 00:03:33

But I do agree that everyone cannot be a full time die, but every human being should at least be a part time die. And we do require certain people to be doctors to be engineers to be teachers etc.

00:03:34--> 00:03:43

So, even if a person becomes a doctor or engineer or a teacher, he should be a good practicing doctor, he should be a good practicing engineer.

00:03:44--> 00:04:03

He should be a good Muslim. If a person becomes a doctor, if a person becomes an engineer, he should not involve in things that are Haram, for example, bribing, cheating, etc. It is good to be a doctor to be an engineer, but you should be a good practicing Muslim doctor, you should be a good practicing Muslim engineer.

00:04:05--> 00:04:16

And the best profession is a profession of a dye, the one who conveys the message of Islam to others. Then we also have after that the profession of a scholar.

00:04:18--> 00:04:23

And we have after that the profession of a teacher, a teacher who teaches Islamic Studies

00:04:25--> 00:04:27

in a school, in a college etc.
