The companions of the Prophet knew that they were created differently, with different strengths and weaknesses. Each and every one of them chose their own path to Allah based on what their talents were. Whatever they were good at, they would develop that until they excelled in it.
Some were proficient learners of the Qur’an, some were lions in the battlefield, some were scholars of Fiqh and narrators of Ahadith, some were successful merchants in trade, some were gifted in preaching to the masses, and the list goes on.
So discover your strengths and weaknesses, harness your talents, and excel for the sake of Allah.
Shaikh Sajid Umar
