The heart surgeon is now wiping off the beads of sweat on his forehead after having removed his surgical gloves. He’s just completed a 4-hour long bypass operation on an 18 year-old boy. He looks over to his pale but breathing patient on the operating table and a surge of relief swarms through his entire body. Under his breath he mutters “Alhamdulillah”.
He walks calmly out of the OT and heads over to his office to change into his thobe. Grabbing his kufi now, he strides out of the hospital and crosses over to the Masjid on the other side of the road. There, he is greeted by the old folk and some of his colleagues. After performing his wudhu’, and the Athaan is given, this same man stands up to the microphone and leads the Salaah.
Be the best muslim that you can be.
Stop living under your true potentials!
