If you want people to listen to you,to be a part of your dreams and mission,you have to be an example,you have to live the message you want to spread.
Just talking big,making headlines,winning debates,getting likes doesnt prove you are doing great and are successful.
I have seen people who talk big but do nothing ! They have got a social status,become famous and rich and thats it ! The message is forgotten completely.
If you really want to do great things. If you really want to bring change,you have to be an example and you have to live the message you want to spread. Otherwise people wont listen and there is no sincerity,really !
When you live the message,people respect you if not appreciate. People will get attracted to your mission. (Remember,it is not about you,it is about the mission.)
May Allah make us people of action and not just those who talk. May Allah make us role models for others to follow. May Allah give us strength and opportunity to spread good,to enjoin good and forbid evil. May Allah Help us. Ameen.
