As salaam alaikum,
Food for thought.
"Hast thou ever considered [the kind of man] who makes his own desires his deity? Couldst thou, then, [O Prophet,] be held responsible for him? Or dost thou think that most of them listen [to thy message] and use their reason? Nay, they are but like cattle--nay, they are even less conscious of the right way!" (25-43-44)
Let's not drive our lives by our own desires and thus be less conscious of the right way than a cow!
"Say [unto those who believe]: "No weight or value would my Sustainer attach to you were it not for your faith [in Him]!" (25:77)
I have to chew on that one for a while...
