Women's Empowerment: Being successful without losing your deen
How do we strike the right balance between being successful in deen and dunya?
Many of us seem to spend an incredible amount of time and energy chasing the dream job. Afterall, a bigger paycheck often translates into a better car, a bigger house and a higher worldly social status. What are you striving for?
Ever think of the results of all of your worldy efforts? Is it enough to bring you happiness and contentment?
We are reminded in The Qur’an:
- “Rivalry in worldly increase distracts you (from the remembrance of Allah), till you come to the graves” (102: 1-2)
- “Your wealth and your children are but a trial, and Allah has with Him a great reward.” (64:15).
- "It will be, on the Day they see it, as though they had not remained [in the world] except for an afternoon or a morning thereof.” (79:46)
Lavish homes and fancy vacations are temporary worldy fixes whereas dedicating time and effort into something that lasts an eternity makes more sense, doesn’t it?
So come and join us for a three course meal, and an uplifting evening with International speakers sharing their wisdom on how to be successful without losing your deen .
