A Forgotten Practice
Umar Ibn Al-Khattab RA said “Hold yourself to account before you are judged, and weigh your actions before they are weighed against you.” How do we go about this process of self-evaluation and taking account of ourselves and our actions? This workshop will focus on the importance of self-evaluation. Oftentimes when we get caught up in community work, dawah, or any leadership role we often forget to check ourselves and reflect on our Iman. Being involved and helping others is rewarding, but should not come in the way of our worship. A few points we would like to cover in this talk: Why is it important to do Muhasiba? How should we do it? How often? Importance of renewing intentions? Stories of how the Prophet SAW, Sahaba RA, and righteous predecessors did this Please mention any dua and/or ayahs in the Qur’an and hadith about this.
