what is in your hand?

perhaps, the most important questions you'll be asked in your life are;

  • what is that your hand possessed?
  • what are you doing with what you have been given?
in the Quran, Allah once asked Prophet Musa (Moses):

And what is that in your right hand, O Moses?

and then he answered:
It is my staff; I lean upon it, and I bring down leaves for my sheep and I have therein other uses.
in his ted talk video, rick warren says that, the staff represents 3 things about Musa:

  1.  his identity. he was a shepherd. a symbol of his occupation.
  2. his income.
  3. symbol of his influence (if you have ever read the story, the staff later was turned into a serpent, by the will of Allah, and help Musa convince the Israelis to worship the one and only God)

the purpose of influence is to speak up for those who have no influence.

ok nak ckp tu je. kau berhenti la jadi manusia tak guna yang perangai asyik cari salah orang lain tu.
