No doubt that every human being has his or her own desires and roles model, a person you imitate and wish to become in future.
This is a good thing to have as it encourage the younger one to be determined to be successful in life.
But it is disheartening and disappointing that majorities of our youths today, choose blindly who to take as their role model because of what they see them doing,hence neglecting what the Almighty Allah loves.
But the prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) has give us the kind of person to wish to be like to be successful in this life and Hereafter.
As it was narrated in the hadith below
Narrated Salim’s father: The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “ Do Not to wish to be like anyone except the like of these two (persons): a man whom Allah has given the knowledge of the Qur’an and he recites it during the hours of the night and the hours of the day,
and a man whom Allah has given wealth and he spends it (in Allah’s Cause) during the hours of the night and during the hours of the day.”
Sahih al-Bukhari, Vol. 9, Book 97, Hadith 154
We should all strive to attain the knowledge of the deen to benefit our self and others and we will earn rewards continuously when we teach others even after death as long as they still use the knowledge.
Our wealth given to us by ALLAH is not only for us but also for those in need, and spending in the cause of ALLAH does Not depreciate it but It will increase one wealth and we will also earn rewards.
May ALLAH make us form on his path.
