Love this! The impact truly practising Islam can have 🙂
Don’t know if you saw the clip going round of the rugby player and convert Sonny Bill Williams give away his gold medal to a young fan… it was a true embodiment of lack of attachment and generosity.
Here is an article which has the full story of how the conversion to Islam has helped him go from being criticised and unpopular, to much loved around the world. The video is in the article too for those that are interested!
An excerpt: ‘Right now, the world is in love with SBW. And one of his closest friends, Australian boxer Anthony Mundine, says a huge part of that is down his conversion to Islam.
“Everyone’s quick to judge when somebody’s in the spotlight,” Mundine said of Williams’ past indiscretions. “He went through times when he was young and made bad mistakes but who doesn’t? But then he changed his life around and found Islam … and it’s been nothing but serenity for him now.”‘
Wow. I have goosebumps.
Remember the Inspiration series I shared some time ago? Check the first one out here: http://buzzideazz.com/inspiration-episode-1/
Subhanallah, this lady converted to Islam after watching them. So why am i sharing this here?
I think our kids need to know that Allah has put them in this world for a bigger purpose, and to achieve that bigger purpose, they need to develop their God-given talents and use that for the better good.
This is what they did here with the series. There were Muslims that were good at film-making, acting, editing, etc – and they got together and put these amazing different talents to good use. Just IMAGINE their reward in the hereafter!
So, for example, if you’re child is good at art, this is a talent that should inshallah be developed and perfected and then used for Islam, such as by illustrating good quality children’s books! This is just one teeny weeny example…the list is endless!
May we all help our children reach their very best, Inshallah!
How beautiful is this 🙂 One to share with our kiddos!
