Preoccupied

1620130839174

What does a typical day consist of?

Sleep, work, school, food, family, friends, salah, YouTube, Facebook and TV. Anything missing? Ok.

Now in that typical day, what thoughts occupy our mind?

Work, school, career, money, children, spouse, significant other, vacations, entertainment, bills, sports, fashion, friends and acquaintances. I’m sure there are other thoughts as well, but this an encompassing list in my opinion. Any other major thoughts missing? Ok.

Now, reflect on the following:

وَمَا خَلَقْتُ الْجِنَّ وَالْإِنسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُونِ
And I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me

Are we living up to our purpose? If our days and nights are preoccupied with worry and care for matters pertaining to primarily this duniya alone, can we truthfully say we are? I’m doubtful I am.
