I work at home. I do so for long years after retirement, without salary and without weekend. If I try to write articles for newspapers or translate books for sale, I may earn some money, but I don’t like it. I feel that it is happier to concentrate on totally thinking about God.
I really wonder why should I try to work for money while nowhere God tells me to do so. He allows people to put me in prison, in the army, in disease, in accident, in war evacuation…. that I cannot work for money. Never, I had earned enough money to support myself physically, not to say supporting family members!
I am thankful to God for sustaining me without my getting a paid job.

In the Bahá’í Cause arts, sciences and all crafts are (counted as) worship. The man who makes a piece of notepaper to the best of his ability, conscientiously, concentrating all his forces on perfecting it, is giving praise to God. Briefly, all effort and exertion put forth by man from the fullness of his heart is worship, if it is prompted by the highest motives and the will to do service to humanity.
(Abdu’l-Baha, Paris Talks, p. 176)
Service to mankind
Doing in all circumstances
Truly happy life
