Hello Soldier…Today’s word is Hustle!!!…it’s the only way to go… true story. What do I mean, you ask? Well…I’m glad you did, and I will summarize it in one word…”Jihad”. Jihad is a beautiful word that has been misrepresented and tainted by the mass media smear campaign against Islam. While in fact they don’t even have a clue what Jihad means. Jihad simply means to struggle in the way of Allah.
There are two types of Jihad: the greater jihad and the lesser jihad. The lesser jihad is the one where you fight and the fighting is only when there is no way out, and even then there is still a moral code governing it; it’s not about killing innocent civilians.
The GREATER jihad on the other hand is the internal struggle to stay on the right path. It’s about the war inside; those who have never known peace have different values from those who have never known war. You know how hard it is to fight against your nafs… all day every day… you know the pain when you fall into sin and the joy you get when you conquer your nafs. But for those who are slaves to their nafs and do whatever it commands them, all they do is try to enjoy this world by transgressing the limits. They don’t know what its like to truly struggle.
But never despair because your struggle isn’t in vain, and you will be compensated for every pain you go through as the hadith Narrated by Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri and Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, “No fatigue, nor disease, nor sorrow, nor sadness, nor hurt, nor distress befalls a Muslim, even if it were the prick he receives from a thorn, but that Allah expiates some of his sins for that.” For those working so hard only for this life, it is for nothing but for those working for the next life and also for their portion in this life then it is written that they are the ones truly successful.
The true Grand hustle
That’s all folks and Thank you for your time.
