With the praise of Allah I begin, and I send peace and blessing upon the owner of the high principle, the great Prophet, upon his family, and his honorable Companions.
When we look at our Arab community from the ocean to the gulf, we find that the map of priorities is upside down.
We advance an important matter to the most important and we advance the issues of lower benefit to issues of higher benefit, moreover, we please someone and cause angry to others, and we gain one thousand and losing one million.
For example, If one of our kids pours some tea on the sofa, the parents become mad at that kid just for that simple mistake, however the value of the sofa is not worth 1000 Riyals. If we want to calculate it by priorities, to see which is more important: the kid of sofa?
Of course the kid is more important. Which is more value? Of course the kid.
Furthermore, a father is ready to pay millions to save his kid, but he may become miser to spend few dirhams on the sofa.
Therefore, if the parents think of priorities, and thought before they get angry that there will be collateral damages for their kid either moral or aggressive in his future life, they will choose the way of wisdom in fixing that simple mistake; this from the educational side. As for the Da`wah side, a person may enthuses to spread a deserted Sunnah, but it would be at the extent of another Sunnah or more important Sunan. Moreover, a person may authenticate a weak Hadith to prove a scientific miraculousness which its benefit may only come back to few people, however it is important to stick to the way of the Pious Predecessors in correcting and weakening. There are a lot of randomness in arranging priorities, and a lot of disputes and quarrels whether among scholars or normal people or even between spouses because of difference in the order of priorities, and the lack of following the most important then the important.
Perhaps in this quick view I have been successful to clarify the idea "The order of priorities in our life"
Perhaps one of knowledge seekers, who have high vigor, may write a book about the order of priorities in our life, in the light of the Qur'an and the purified Sunnah in order to be a start upon which we can build our dealings, reactions and measurements.
If my words are correct and true, they due to the guidance of Allah, but if they are wrong, they are from Satan.
I ask Allah to grant success to all people, may Allah bless you!
