One day, I watch Khutbah from Nouman Ali Khan titled : "A life of Integrity". The summary of his wonderful talk is ;
Once the Muslim Establish his Prayer 🤲, they will be no internal or external problem happen to them.
But how to Establish the prayer ?? Another word to describe the established word is Preserve the prayer. This means that it makes sure it stands (prayer), you keep maintaining 🛠 it.
So, you keep ;
✅ maintaining the prayer
✅ Preserve the prayer
You know what that's mean ?? The prayer is something that can be damaged very easily, it needs to maintain and preserve.
But to do this, we need to change our past salah. Because if we maintaining the wrong manner of salah, it will be a waste of effort. I learn more about salah from my guru. Consistently changing what I do and feel about Salah.
Today on Magrib Salah, I feel what Nouman Ali Khan taught about the feeling of the true prayer,
You feel stronger after Salah
When I'm in Salah, I forget about;
✅ all my past story/achievement
✅ my regrets
✅ my worries of future
✅ my code bug 😂
✅ worries about financial
✅ worries about this freaking Tech world
✅ worries about job
✅ an expert that I'm scared
✅ An influencer in Tech/Startup Community
✅ Thinking of building a startup
✅ all about this world (very long list)
What I'm thinking in Salah is;
What would be my practices brought to the hereafter. What will I show to Allah in my life's story to get to see Allah in Jannah.
Why I'm thinking like this ??
Islam taught that Everything in the World was created by Allah. The Universe, the sky, the Planet, The Knowledge about Ruby and Rails, World Wide Web, ReactJs, the Vaccine formula, and so on.
So, with that thinking, our mind will not bother to be scared with others, to something that we not sure about, creating a new invention, and something that we think is not figureoutable.
With that in mind, a new fresh, stronger, positive, and confident mind 🧠 will bear to live in this short life.
I will open a new book, new build in public, new learn in public, do not mind about others thinking about me, impatience with action, patience with action, forget about past knowledge about startup/programming world.
My New book will be filled with ;
✅ Ruby and Rails 💎🛤
✅ Learn/Build/Fail in public 💪
✅ Bootstrapper 🚀
✅ Write/Build/Read to Think 🧠
✅ Digital Nomad 🏔
✅ Tons of great books 📚
✅ Change my idea to reality
✅ More Experimenting, rather than strict to it
Happy life 😁
