A Pictorial Summary of what NOT to be…
Yes indeed. Don’t be useless because you’re worth so much more than that.
Being useless by just lounging or loitering around (couch potatoes, party hounds and compulsive shoppers, I am talking to YOU) does not bring a person ANY benefit.
However, being useful will help one both in this world and in the hereafter.
Let’s be useful to ourselves (by constantly remembering Allah) and to others (by helping them out and making things easy for them).
We need to give ourselves a chance, remember?
