"Thee (alone) we worship; Thee (alone) we ask for help." Surat Al-Fatiha, Verse No.5
Scholars say that the secret of the Quran lies in Surat Al-Fatiha, and the secret of Surat Al-Fatiha lies in this verse: "You Alone We Worship; and You Alone we ask for help".
This one verse summarises what true servitude to Allah(Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala) means: We need to worship Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala) because that's our purpose in life, yet we cannot worship Him without His permission or help.
Similarly from a productivity point of view, we need to be constantly productive in order to better serve our deen, our brothers and sisters and ourselves, yet we cannot be productive without His permission and help.
So as a ProductiveMuslim, you should constantly ask Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala) for his help and support and never believe that your actions and productivity are yours, but they are from Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala).
