The aim of a Muslim is to develop Ehsan (excellence) in all aspects of their life, which includes acts of Obligatory Worship, personal relationships, and professional path. This is achieved by embodying Sunnah (Verified Way of Prophet Muhammad - Peace and Blessings upon him) which models excellence for all of humanity.
