A Muslim is one that aims high. He doesn’t settle for Jannah only but aims higher for Al-Firdaws. Al-Bukhari reported, the Messenger of Allah (salah allah ‘alayhi wa salam) said: “So when you ask Allah, then ask for Al-Firdaws, for indeed, it is the highest part of Paradise; above it is the Throne of the Merciful and flowing rivers.”

This was the mentality of the greatest generation. They aimed high looking to reach Al-Firdaws and thus they understood the lowly status of this world in comparison to the Hereafter. They believed that this life is but a stepping stone to something much better and greater. Yet, Muslims today have adopted a defeated mentality. You ask them about the Hereafter and their reply is, ‘Ya Akhi, we just want to make it through..’ Subhanna Allah! You mean that you don’t mind spending thousands of years in Hell-fire and then finally be admitted to Jannah? Isn’t our goal to make to Al-Firdaws without facing a second of punishment?!
