Imagine, you and me are gathered on the day of judgement, hearts filled with the fret and eyes shedding enormous amount of tears, unconscious of how we are dressed or look for we don’t know where we stand in the Eyes of Allah and which side (good deeds side or bad deeds side) of our balance is going to be heavier. Our bodies are shaking because we realize we have been so neglecting towards Salahs, Quran and basic rulings of Islam. 😭
Can we really compromise the day of resurrection’s relief for some worldly temporary pleasure? 😔
A little humbleness shown today, few moments of kindness, some days of truthfulness and a life of honesty can take us closer to the Heavens, a literally ‘happily ever after’ and above all our Salahs that hardly take 1 hour of whole day can make us among those who will have the honor to see the Lord of the Heavens and Earth and of the Universe, the perfect entity, and our only Provider Allah Almighty. 😍
On the other hand, even if we get all the worldly pleasures we wish for today, they are hardly gonna last for a couple of decays, so, is it really worth it? 🤔
I am leaving you a question here.
The short sleep we get by not waking up for fajr, and the enjoyment after talking behind someone’s back, dressing un-modestly cause we love getting compliments (and the list goes on, unfortunately) is that all worth burning in hell for decays? Does it do justice and can protect us on Yaum’id deen?
And before we even think, yeah well Allah is Ghaffoor and Raheem (which indeed He is) Let me share with you this ayah where Allah says:
The repentance accepted by Allah is only for those who do wrong in ignorance [or carelessness] and then repent soon after. It is those to whom Allah will turn in forgiveness, and Allah is ever Knowing and Wise. (An-nisa 4:17)
Furthermore, Allah speaks about those who on the contrary keep doing the sins until they reach their death-bed and then they make repentance, they no longer deserve Allah’s mercy. (Astaghfirullah 😭) He says in next ayah:
But repentance is not [accepted] of those who [continue to] do evil deeds up until, when death comes to one of them, he says, “Indeed, I have repented now,” or of those who die while they are disbelievers. For them We have prepared a painful punishment. (An-nisa 4:18)
Do I and you know if we are going to live the next moment?
May Allah forgive us, guide us and make us among those with whom He will be pleased on the day of Judgement. Say, Amin :’)
