Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh,
IN THE NAME OF ALLAH, THE MOST BENEFICENT, THE MOST MERCIFUL
Assalamu alaikum my dear brothers and sisters, can you imagine my brothers and my sisters.. if we managed to convince our hearts that today might be my day, imagine my brothers and my sisters if the Angel of Death was to come to any of us this morning after Fajr, he knocks on your door, He says, mate! I’m coming at Maghrib. I’m coming, prepare yourself. How will your day be? How will your day be? Are you gonna spend your day on YouTube? Are you gonna spend your day on Facebook?
You might say, sir i am using it in Halaal way so what is the problem. My dear brothers and sisters its not about Haraam & Halaa now. It’s all about my brothers and my sisters are you fulfilling what Allah wants from you or not? Are you doing the job, Allah (subhana WA Ta’ala) created you to do or not? So if you know your death is coming, Wallahi by Allah (SWT), No work, no wife, no children. You will run to the Masjid and start crying and pleading to Allah, reading Quran, Ya Allah forgive me, Ya Allah accept me, no time to waste.
How about if the angel of death comes at you at the beginning of the night and says to you after Maghrib, I’m really really sorry to inform you but before Fajr you’re gone? How will your night be? will you snore till Fajr. Will you sleep all night? Will you sleep and miss Fajr that day or will you have your alarm on for Tahajjud? Will you have your alarm on for a night prayer? By Allah… you will not be able to sleep at all. You will cry, you will plead, you will be praying to Allah (subhana WA Ta’ala).
A true believer my brothers and my sisters lives as such. He is not waiting for Judgment Day to start. He wants the clear everything before this day is even close. He knows that his Judgment Day might start tonight, might start any second and because of this feeling they are working very very hard day and night, they are competing like Allah (subhana WA Ta’ala) ordered them, Allah said: Race! It’s a race my brothers and my sisters. A race for the forgiveness of Allah! And paradise, the width of which is heavens and earths (subhan Allah)
My brothers those who have a iman (faith) they don’t delay their Deen. Those who have Yaqeen and firm belief they know my brothers and my sisters that time might run very very shortly. There’s no time, they don’t waste any moment. When they start intention for change, when they want to repent and return to Allah, they don’t delay this repentance. Some people say… you know when they want to worship Allah, they say in’sha’Allah Ramadan!
You know a very very common thing, I promise you next Ramadan i will do my 100% repentance from everything. Next Hajj – i am just waiting to go to Hajj brother and after that you will see change in me, My simple question to those people who say like this that how do you know you are leaving till next Ramadan? How do you know you are living till hajj? A true believer act straight away, does not delay, does not push forward rather he starts ASAP (as soon as possible)
May Allah have mercy on us (Ameen).
