0 Between Responsibility And Free Time

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

It is amusing, honestly, to be beneficial and do good things as dakwah, usrah, community services or whatever we might call them. Especially when we have good friends around us sharing the same feeling, being happy and grieve together. It is, indeed, an ultimate satisfaction when we cannot do nothing than only sleep right after going out doing all those things because of tiredness. A worth tiredness I would say.

What I mostly am afraid of, however, is the reason behind all those doings. I am afraid that I would stop when there are more 'interesting' things to do. When I have many things to lose. Wife(s), children, jobs, money and family. Undergraduate-study period is a honeymoon period with ample time to do many things. I just need to study, maintain sufficient results and regularly call parents. Not so much to lose.

It is not that we do not know the compulsory of doing dakwah, but the abundant of responsibilities, which are also obligatory, that are needed to be done, that may make us put this aside.

A friend of mine did say some words that I completely agree right now, which I did not understand formerly,

"Al-akh will not be considered qowiy(strong) unless he still commits on what he is doing, after marriage and starts working,"

It will shift us away if we do not really understand the reason of doing it. To understand is very important before everything. Our religion is based on understanding, not on doctrine or blindly following what comes before us.
