When the whole world is squeezed to serve you

I received an amazing comment as a response to yesterday's post. Because its so amazing, i decided to turn it into a post for the benefit of all of us:

"there was one time, during jaulah in Indonesia, we met an ikhwan who is:
1. a governor of the province where we were jaulah-ing.
2. a father of ten kids of varying ages.
3. a husband.
4. a murabbi for a lot of circles (in Indonesia, it's normal for a murabbi to hold ten or more circles)
5. a mutarabbi himself.
6. a writer.


and a whole lot more.

When we asked him, how in the world did he manage to manage his time?

His answer: if you do D&T, you will get quality of time, masa yang berkah*, insyaAllah."


*time that is blessed

That is absolutely true. These people can do a lot of things because Allah blessed their time. It is as the Prophet said:

"Take care of (your duties with) Allah, Allah will take care of you".

When you squeeze every ounce of your energy and time to serve Allah, Allah will squeeze the world to serve you. 

New highways will be built to connect the ports inside your brain, until you can understand more than anyone else, faster than anyone else and understand them in ways no one thought about before.

You will be given inspiration to do things in new ways, combine two things at one go or do things in a simpler fashion.

You will be helped when all roads are blocked.

This is barakah, blessing. This is something that, unfortunately, we have forgotten in the present materialistic, calculative world.

Every single thing will be blessed if one is involved in D&T, that is very true. What you said below:

New highways will be built to connect the ports inside your brain, until you can understand more than anyone else, faster than anyone else and understand them in ways no one thought about before.

Is literally true for one akhwat, she managed to finish her entire thesis (14K words) in five days, much to the amazement of her supervisor who was not even sure whether she could even hand it in three weeks' time.
