It Is Not About BIG




In ten years time, please ponder about these:

1. It is not how big (grand) you hold your wedding! Ten years from now, most

people will not ask you how grand your wedding celebration was held but they will

ask you how is your marriage with your spouse and how many children you have?


2. It is not how big you organize your children's birthday parties! Ten years from

now, your children will not ask you how grand their birthday parties were but they

will ask you how often you cared or neglected them?


3. It is not how big (much) you spend on decorating (renovating) your home! Ten

years from now, your neighbours will not ask you how much you spend on your

home but they will ask you how come you are not always at home?


4. It is not how big you spend on your graduation day! Ten years from now, your

fellow graduates will not ask you how much you spend on your graduation day but

they will ask you what job are you doing now?


5. It is not how big your donation to a charity! Ten years from now, the charity you

donated will not ask you how much you had donated but they will ask you if you

can do it again?


6. It is not how big you give your wife! Ten years from now, your wife will not ask

you how much you had spent on her but she will ask you how much "quality" time

you spend with her?


7. It is not how big (big) your car was! Ten years from now, you colleagues will

not ask you how big and powerful your car was but they will ask you "are you still

keeping that old junk"?


8. It is not how big (a sacrifice) you made! Ten years from now, your boss will not

ask how big a sacrifice you had made for the company but your boss will ask how

much you will cost him (pension, medical benefits etc)..?


9. It is not how big (major / many?) you had sinned! Ten years from now, you will

not ask yourself how big your sins were but ask this have I REPENT now!! ?

(insya'allah)


10. It is not how big (the amount and or the time) you spend on ALLAH SWT!! In

life hereafter, Allah Ta'ala will not ask or look at the amount (quantity) you spent

or how big (important) a person you were but Allah Ta'ala will ask your true niat

(intention).......... Is it really for Allah Ta'ala?


Dear brothers and sisters, Allah Ta'ala loves the Ibaadah of the servants which is

"little" but everlasting with a "dash" of sincerity...so the question is not on

quantity but the quality. Islam's emphasis on quality is understandable as we are

the best ummah so before you decide to proceed on anything please bear this in

mind......."IT IS NOT ABOUT BIG!"...


p/s: let think together about the statements..
