Mandate: An Avoidance or Acceptance?

Situation A
"When will you confirm either you'll be continuing your study here or not?"

"I'm not sure. My sponsor can't give any decision yet. Perhaps before the end of April."

"Would you like to be the Sisters' Vice President?"

Situation B
"I think your awesomeness should not just stop here. Would you like to involve yourself as FOSIS (Federation of Student Islamic Societies) committee?"

Situation C
"I would prefer if the other sisters would like to run for the position. I already have a position, a role to work for the ummah. Besides, I will always there to help Isoc."

"Yes, sister. But only when being as the committee, you can change."

Situation D
"Can you just ask the sponsor again? I don't know who else I should ask for help to lead this team..The others seem not so happy to be the leader."

***
This is not the matter of heroism. Saidina Umar al-Khattab, when he was given the post as a khalifah, he was quite reluctant to accept it. Because the amanah is the heaviest in this world. But if nobody will take it, it is his duty to take the challenge. There's another 'but': if there are other people who are eligible enough to work for the ummah, we should give him or her the chance. Everyone wants to enter jannah..

Here, fiqh awlawiyat applies.

Sesungguhnya solatku, ibadahku, hidupku,dan matiku hanya semata-mata bagi Allah, Tuhan semesta alam.

For what it's worth sister: having worked with you before, I honestly consider you the number 1 contender for VP. InshaAllah with istikhara prayer you can make the right decision for yourself. Salaams
