Small but Heavy on the Scale
Imam Azeez on - We’ve all heard the phrase “go big or go home” in the context of sports and competitions. Even at work or in social settings, this attitude seems to have become widespread in our culture. We’ve convinced ourselves that somethings value is directly associated with it’s grandeur and scale. We even see this in attitude among the faithful. When someone wishes to increase in piety, he feels that he has to do something spectacular, while others give up on piety because they feel that they aren’t ready to “go big”. Yet our tradition and our prophet (saw) teach us a very different approach to developing a true connection with Allah (swt).
