Hard Work


9-hardwork

The purpose of the creation of man, according to Islam, is that he should worship Allah. Worship means total obedience to the commands of Allah. The Holy Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, brought the message of God and explained all the commandments concerning the religion of Islam.

The concept of hard work in Islam is the struggle to be better as a human being and this makes one closer to Allah. The Holy Prophet (saw) was fond of working with his own hands whenever possible rather than getting someone else to do His work or something that makes it more convenient. Hard work is an Islamic value and virtue.
