A Wise Advice

A Wise Advice
O my dear son! Establish worship and enjoin kindness and forbid iniquity, and persevere whatever may befall thee. Lo! that is of the steadfast heart of things.” Surat Luqman, Verse 17.
The wise words of Prophet Luqman (Peace be upon him) are timeless and they are for all people across all time. Notice the sequence of the advice: establish worship/prayer, enjoin kindness, forbid iniquity, be patient.
These 4 actions are a blueprint for any person who wants to be productive in their community:
1. First, you should establish your worship and prayer and make sure that you are firm on them
2. Second, you should go out and guide people towards the good
3. Third once, you’ve established yourself as a person who calls for good, you can venture into calling people away from harm and disobeying Allah; they’ll be more receptive to you since they know you always call them for good.
4. Naturally, not everyone will like your message so they might fight you or mock you, this is where patience is needed.
If each of us establish these four traits in our societies, the entire Ummah would be in a completely different state.
May Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) make us of those who are productive in our societies following Luqman’s wise words. Ameen.
