“Allah does not burden a soul beyond that it can bear ” [Quran, 2:286]
Every Muslim should set goals to achieve in life, without it, life can become meaningless and empty. That is why Muslims should ponder of the question that are they simply created to solely eat, drink, marry and die, or is there a greater goal and objective behind the meaning of a successful human being?
Many Muslims in history set goals and achieved great heights. Imam al-Bukhari, Umar bin Abdul Aziz and Mohammed al-Fatih reached great heights in their lifetimes through setting targets and reaching their goals.
Therefore this week’s Friday khutba (sermon) is primarily aimed at how important education is to achieve such goals and ambitions and how each individual can convert each everyday act into an act of worship.
