Life as I see it

Many times I've been asked questions like, what inspires me in all my endeavors. So my answers to these kind of questions are based on three purposes in my life as a muslimah.

1. To be the servant of Allah.
2. To be a khalifah.
3. To do things in my circle of influence according to the rules and regulations of Allah.

Whatever I do, I make sure it is in alignment with these 3 purposes. As a servant to Allah, we do not question Allah's order. As a muslim, we have to love our muslim brothers and sisters the way we love ourselves apart from loving non-muslims. So in whatever I do, I like to treat others better than the way I want to be treated. In this act, I do things to the best of my ability in almost all circumstances. As a khalifah, I have to lead myself, my children and my organization as well as my community. In order to be a leader, I have to have certain qualities that will be exemplary in nature to those under me. In this contact, I try to lead by example.

Specific DNA make-up or genetic that Allah has bestowed upon me that is unique to me. I use my strength and talent to serve mankind with integrity, empathy and the highest quality in whatever I do.

I see myself as a teacher to medical students and post-graduate students in ophthalmology. As a professional eye surgeon I strive to practice preventive, curative and rehabilitative eye service. This is made possible by appearances in the media. Another passion that I recently develop in personal and professional development where I would like to develop myself and help to develop others to have a living skill, to be happy and successful in this world and hereafter. I believe, we should work hard on ourself to serve better in our work. If we help enough people get what they want, we will get all that we want in this world.

"Life is a boomerang. In order for us to be happy, we have to make others happy. What we want for ourself, we give to others first. In other word, what we give is what we get, and we cannot give what we do not have."
  • To be successful, we have to make others successful.
  • To be happy, we make others happy.
  • To be healthy, we make others healthy.
Be the change you want in others according to Mahatma Gandhi. To achieve the highest peace of mind, we have to do three things:

1. High integrity
2. Treat others better than the way you want to be treated
3. Go the extra mile. There is no traffic jam.

Three principles of life.
1. Have
2. Give
3. Get

Have good, give good, get good. So if we get bad, it means that we have given bad and we can only give bad if we have bad inside us. Hence, to have a good life, work at developing goodness in our heart and start giving love and kindness, peace and joy.
