Forever And A Day

We think we'll live forever and a day, and we continue on our merry way not worrying about the sins of the past. Not even casting a second glance.

We continue walking this risky path, never pondering "how long will all this last??"
Do we really think all these pleasures will remain for infinity. We have been warned all of this is temporary.

Soon a new day will dawn, dunya and everything we own will perish. So don't lose yourself in the adornments of the fast sinking ship known as the world.

Don't walk with pride on this land because one day soon our bones will be mingling with the sand. Think yourself superior to none, our deeds determine our rank and Allah alone will pass judgment.

The Ummah has gone astray, everyone's in disarray. Continuously obeying shaitaans whispers, repeatedly falling into his traps.

Our lives are crumbling before our eyes, yet we are doing nothing to stop this decline. Strangers in our own religion. Oblivious to every obligation.
In the past Muslims were stronger, fearing no one but Allah, they fearlessly defended our Deen. Conquering not only armies but millions of hearts with their beautiful character and undying devotion.

People of now seem to lack Emotion.
Do we ever sit and ponder... Our sins could be the reason for all this destruction. So much oppression and killing, so many earthquakes and flooding, hurricanes, tornados and tsunamis, just some of the punishments raining down in various countries.

We think we can fix all this with a display picture or a tweet. Rarely sparing a prayer for those oppressed and suffering, not ever sacrificing our sleep to plead with Allah to forgive us and always keep the Ummah safe.

We're not willing to change our lives, not willing to sacrifice for our Deen.

Our souls have been darkened by our continues sinning, and our hearts and minds blinded by desire and greed.

We have sight yet we cannot see, all of Allah's bounties, all of his beautiful creations.
The sun, the moon and the magnificent blue sea. Just some of the miracles surrounding thee.

We have ears but we dont hear or reply to Adhaan nor do we acknowledge the lectures given by the learned.
We have legs but dont use them to walk to Salaah.
We have eyes but when last have we used them to read Quraan?
All of these are bounties from your most merciful Lord.
Bounties upon bounties upon bounties.
Even though we've done nothing to deserve it.

We follow the western way blindly, never questioning there ridiculous ways or anything they say, following countless trends.
And we continue pretending we'll live forever and a day.

We say we yearn for Jannah, but we fail to direct our heart towards our sustainer.
Don't we realise, Jannah is not free it has to be earned.

Its not yet to late to start changing your ways, start banking rewards for the hereafter.

Never lose hope, and holds firm to the rope of Allah, His mercy encompasses all.
Loosen your hold on dunya, strive to perform actions thats will build you palaces in Jannah.

Pray that on the day of Qiyaamah, Jahannam rejects you and Jannah calls out to you.
Pray that Nabi صلى الله عليه وسلم intercedes for you, and beckons you to drink from
Al-Kauthar.

Proclaim your Shahaadah.
Perform you Salaah.
Give Zakaah.
Fast in Ramadhan.
And go for hajj if u have means.

Never stop trying to strengthen your Imaan.
Never stop striving for the status of Mu'min.
Embrace your Deen fully, let it be seen on you wherever you may go.
Have full Yaqeen in Allah and soon you will be reclining on beautiful thrones, dining on the finest foods, enjoying entrancing views as Kings and Queens in Jannah!

رَبَّنَا ظَلَمْنَا أَنفُسَنَا وَإِن لَّمْ تَغْفِرْ لَنَا وَتَرْحَمْنَا لَنَكُونَنَّ مِنَ الْخَاسِرِينَ

Our Lord, we have wronged ourselves. If You do not forgive us and do not show mercy on us, surely we are of the losers."

رَبِّ هَبْ لِي حُكْمًا وَأَلْحِقْنِي بِالصَّالِحِينَ

My Lord: Grant me wisdom, and join me with the good.

آمين يارب العالمين

Endless Greed and Desire

Sayyiduna Anas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “If the son of Aadam has two valleys of we...
