Series 1: Intentions
Entrepreneurship is not just about making money.
It goes beyond that. TRUST ME.
At first, I thought that it is impossible for an ordinary people like me to achieve big dreams.
Now, I realize that BUSINESS is actually a medium to HELP. We are helping to solve other people’s problem. That’s what my Mentor Suria said.
Allah swt reminds us:
“And help each other in righteousness and piety, and help not one another in sin and transgression and remain fearing Allah. Undoubtedly, the torment of Allah is severe.”
Let us ponder.
Any business you are in right now, you are actually helping the community.
When you are selling beauty product, you are helping people look good.
When you are selling herbs and medicines, you are helping people to cure.
When you are teaching, you are helping people to understand better.
Yes. That is business. An exchange. Money is just a medium.
Business is solving other people’s problem.
Business is helping.
Business is impacting.
And above all, business is SERVING.
Thus in business, we must always check our intention every single day.
To receive money, and SERVE.
To receive money, and HELP.
To receive money, and GIVE.
May Allah make us people with good intention to Allah.
