"Serve Others so that you can better serve Yourself" - WAIT!!
Does this even make any sense? please read on...
Do you realize that others see your faith (Islam) through what THEY SEE IN YOUR BEHAVIOR?
Others see it mostly through your charity,
through your good deeds,
through your noble actions,
through your ethics & values system,
through your service to others
AS WELL as through your prayers and worship.?
Dearest Community ASA WRB:
Please strive to be better in your service to all of Gods creation;
...as we strive to be more better in our understanding of being vicegerents (custodians (Gods mission for us on this Earth)) through a more moderate approach to our Faith;...as we strive be more righteous and good in all that we do;
...as we strive be more moderate and remain more balanced in all that we do;
...as we strive to be more welcoming to each of you (us) especially to our Youth & Ladies;
...as we strive to show more of our appreciation to GOD for all that we have been individually been blessed with (and tested with) such as our wealth, our wisdom, our intellect, our skills, our position, even our fingers, etc. by sharing and using some of the same in service and for the betterment of all community.
...as we try more to "Serve others so that we can though service learn and experience humility and thereby better Serve Ourselves"
now.. "Let us all forgive all that is not forgiven between us so that we can have proof of our benevolence when we look upward and ask for forgiveness AND so that all of us will then only need to ask for forgiveness from the one who is most Merciful, and most Gracious"
