On Fasting and the Working Life
The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) said:
I recently started the 9-5 life. I’m grateful to be employed. Yet, often, when the day ends, I idly think:
“There is a time when a worker experiences joy: when he ends his day of work, and…”
And I find myself praying that I will, at the end of this life and the Hereafter, be glad that I worked.
I bid a very happy Ramadan to all those observing this blessed month, and pray that Allah grant us all rizq in the most wholesome and fulfilling ways.
