What You Need to Know About Taqwa & Ramadan – Motivational | Majed Mahmoud

#Taqwa #Ramadan #PurposeOfGod

What is the purpose of our creation? Why did God create us? If it is to worship Him then what is the purpose of worshiping God?

The purpose of every act of worship is to attain taqwa. 

God clearly said that He commanded us to worship Him so that we may attain taqwa. See Chapter 2 Verse 21. Allah says:

[2:21] يَـٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلنَّاسُ ٱعْبُدُوا۟ رَبَّكُمُ ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَكُمْ وَٱلَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ ٢١

“O People! Worship your Lord, The one who created you and those before you, so that you may attain taqwa.”

If that is the case, then what in the world is taqwa? 

Taqwa comes from the word weqaayah (i.e. protection). So if someone says: have taqwa of something then it means, protect yourself from that something that you fear. 

In our case here, having taqwa of God means, protect your self from the anger and wrath of God.

That protection is not a mask one wears to be protected from sicknesses but that protection is fulfilling the commands of God. 

The more of these commands are being followed the greater the protection. 

Of the greatest commands, of the greatest of protections, is to fast the month of Ramadan. See Surat Albaqarah Chapter 2 Verse 183. 

The goal of all goals, the purpose of all purposes, is to be of the muttaqeen, those who have taqwa.

    SALAM ALAIKUM Brother's and sister's
    Ramadan Mubarak 🌙
    Mohammed prophet said (The believers shade on the day of resurrection will be
    his charity) Al-tirmedhi
    الَّذِينَ يُنْفِقُونَ أَمْوَالَهُمْ بِاللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ سِرًّا وَعَلَانِيَةً فَلَهُمْ أجرهُمْ عِنْدَ رَبِّهِمْ وَلَا خَوْفٌ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا هُمْ يَحْزَنُونَ
    Those who (in charity) spend of their goods by night and by day, in secret and in public, have their reward with their Lord: on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve (Al-baqara verse 274)

    I am your sister Um Mohammed from Palestine (Gaza strip )🇵🇸🇵🇸
    I am a widow and My husband passed away(shaheed) in the war of 2021. previous year
    I have four children 3 girls and boy
    I live in an old rent flat that not valid for life with my old father and mother (70 years old)
    As my father suffer from cancer most of his time in the hospital
    My children suffer malnutrition and lack of food and also do not go to school because we don't have the minimum necessities of life
    We are a family without a breadwinner
    We live deprivation and tragedy every day of our lives
    We live with accumulated debts and also live with the fear of being evicted from the apartment for not paying the rent

    All I wish is to find a source of livelihood where I can provide food for my children and my sick mother and father
    I desperately need the help of my Muslim brothers and sisters from everywhere Even if a little
    (whoever removes a grief from a believer from amongest the sorrows of this life, Allah will remove a grief from him amongest the sorrows of the day of Resurrection)
