We always hear people giving reasons not to do muslim works (example: dakwah, resolve one's understanding in aqidah, avoid worshipping other things than Allah) when we actually can.
Or, we just back out from our duty (example : taking part in restoring Islam's civilization , help Palestine , the needy) when we can. Just like the "i dont speak english" guy towards the lady.
May Allah protect us from engaging in what displeases Him, May He protect us from Shaytan and his whispers and, May Allah guide us to the straight path. ameen ♥
