 Clinging to Duniya

Student of Al Huda

O you who have believed, what is [the matter] with you that, when you are told to go forth in the cause of Allāh, you adhere heavily to the earth? Are you satisfied with the life of this world rather than the Hereafter? But what is the enjoyment of worldly life compared to the Hereafter except a [very] little. [At Tawbah:38]
I really felt as though the verses today were talking about me. We always are so attracted to this duniya that we forget our actual purpose. We would rather sit back than go out and work for the sake of Allah. This could be anything as small as attending a lecture or actually going out to teach others; we are always more comfortable at home. This links to verse 41:
Go forth, whether light or heavy, and strive with your wealth and your lives in the cause of Allāh. That is better for you, if you only knew. [At Tawbah:41]
This erases any of the excuses we make, Allah is ordering that we go out whether we have problems or not, whether we feel happy or not, whether we want to or not and do it all for Allah’s pleasure.
