•Number 1 matters!
•Think about yourself!
•Put yourself first!
•Forget the rest!
...Etc, etc and etc!
This is what we're always told and taught. And whilst it is good to care for oneself and work on one's own achievements - becoming selfish really doesn't do anything for our heart, soul, duniya and akhirah. We're left empty, lonely and unfulfilled.
"None of you will have faith till he wishes for his (Muslim) brother what he likes for himself.” [Bukhâri]
Whatever you want for yourself make sure you ask God to bless all your loved one's with the same and more. It's part of our emaan, deen and strengthens society.
By becoming a selfless giver you receive more - you receive barakah - you receive duas in abundance and you'll feel content inside.
Have a Blessed Friday and give a little today - duas for everyone, everywhere insha'Allah :)
