#19 Reflections: Finding My Why For Today

Intentions for the Muslim

As Muslims we know every moment we breath can be an act of worship if we repurpose the action to be for Him alone.

I am going to this job everyday to learn skills that I can use in other projects to serve the Ummah with.

I’m sure being an excel wizard will be helpful somewhere lol. But apart from that, being in such a big firm means being in constant interaction with various types of people. Maybe I am here to learn how to be a better communicator, a better team player, a better leader.

I am going to this job everyday to learn more about a sector that isn’t well explored.

Although finance and money is something that the world revolves around, most Muslims tend to stray far from working in it (understandably) because of all the haraam it involves. But this means we, as an ummah, have very little knowledge or expertise to set up halal financial systems either. Maybe Allah placed me here to gain the expertise to set up solutions for the Muslim community.

I am going to this job everyday to earn money to give more in charity.

Being financially independent means that I can give more in charity and support more projects that I would never have been able to if I just continued studying, for example.

I am going to this job everyday to become more productive with my time.

Staying at home after my degree without a job, with the excuse of ‘looking for my purpose’, may have resulted me in just becoming lazy in all aspects of my life.
