Distress, anxiety, joys, fear, worries and happiness: different facets that make up this mesmerizing sojourn called “life”. It might fascinate you with its unknown twists and turns. There are moments where you relish the joys and happiness with every breath you take. And then, there are moments when the human soul, weak in its creation but as mighty as it thinks of itself, tries to shred realities and instead, buries itself into worldly deceptions.
With the pressures of dunya that strangle us both physically and emotionally, our minds tend to lose focus and our hearts cringe with disappointments and pain. Beyond all of this, our souls end up forgetting their very purpose of existence: To worship our Creator .
In this article, let us undertake a journey that would help us free our hearts from worries, let us perform tiny little acts of acts that could weigh heavy on our scale of good deeds, helping us have an eeman high, in sha Allah.
Imam Afroz Ali speaks about the importance of service in the religion of Islam. He stresses the importance of knowing our deen, as ‘Knowledge comes before action’. It is our manifested responsibility is to be people of Khidma (service). SO, it is the human being who can and should be the ‘distribution agency’ of Allah, Glorified and Exalted be He. This lecture was given during the SeekersHub Global, Sa’ada & Radical Middle Way UK Tour – Knowledge Without Barriers – in June, 2013.

“I don’t have air conditioned office to work in, I don’t get to dress up in a suit, I don’t get a secretary to serve me in my lunch break but I am still happy and in peace of my mind as I know I work hard and earn halal roti (Bread/Food) for myself and for my children and I am grateful to Allah (God) for all his blessings.”
