Be somebody, in this life. and i don’t mean “be a famous figure in your field.” i mean; be a hero of Islam-feed the hungry, take in the orphans, spread peace…spread this Islam that we’re blessed with. i once heard a sheikh say; “imam Ahmed ibn Hanbal and imam Malik and al-Ghazali had people saying “radi allahu 3anhum” (may Allah be pleased with them) after mentioning any one of them in a sentence, centuries after their deaths. Will you do anything to have the people say ‘may Allah be pleased with him (or her)’ after you die?” (in other words, will you do anything for Allah’s religion, here on this earth, while you live?)
