In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful,

the Most Compassionate

Praise be to Allah, and may His peace and blessings be upon Muhammad,

and upon his family and companions, and all those who follow him

Out of the many beautiful qualities and attributes of our Prophet, was that he was very focussed on his mission as a Prophet of Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala), intent on guiding the people around him, and continuously concentrating on the political situation in Arabia. He wasn’t distracted or allowed his focus to be distorted by the pleasures of this world.
It was reported that when he was with someone, he would be fully engaged with them; turning his full body towards the person and listening to them attentively. When he was with his family, he devoted his attention to them and only when the prayer time came did his focus shift away from them and towards devotion to his salah.
Reflecting on the above, the secret to the Prophet’s achievements in life is that he was focussed on Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) all the time and seeking His pleasures – nobody else’s. This meant the Prophet shaped his priorities around his Hereafter and didn’t let the world distract him.
If you’re with Allah, then there’s nothing that you lose. And if you’re not with Allah, then you’ve lost everything. Focus on being with Allah through acts of worship such as remembrance, salah, sadaqah; seeking His pleasure in everything you do, and watch yourself live a truly focussed life..
