The Transient Life


O my people! Truly, this life of the world is nothing but a (quick passing) enjoyment, and verily, the Hereafter that is the home that will remain forever-Qur'an


When Qur'an speaks, I get riveted, spellbound, speechless, and at best, a spiritual excitement. Allaah's Words are inimitable, perfect and excellent.



Commerce will come and go, seasons will come and go, there's young age and there's old age, there's enrollment and there's graduation, there's life and there's death.



There's truth and there's falsehood, there's Qur'an and there's confused books, there's prophet and there's Satan, it depends on which highway you are on.



Sometimes I laugh and sometimes I sob profusely when I reflect on the reality of this life, how temporary a thing it is yet we are overwhelmed by it.



If our most beloved Nabiyy (saw) is no more, and his honorable consorts (RA) are no more and the heavy contingents of his Sahaba (RA) are no more then what more of us? One day we too will definitely be no more.



I looked at the past, at most, many lives that I've witnessed their departure. How am I gonna fare before Allaah? How are you gonna fare before Allaah?



Where lies victory?  Where lies it not? Allah says: "Verily, We will indeed make victorious Our Messengers and those who believe, in this world and on the Day when the witnesses will stand forth (Hereafter)".



If Allah has determined victory for the Messenger and the believers in all aspects of life and equally on the Day when the witnesses will stand forth (Hereafter)-then so shall it be.



The Question is: Do we qualify to be among the believers? There's a Muslim and there's a Mu'meen-A mu'meen does Allaah's Will judiciously.



We shouldn't allow ourselves to be carried away by the praises of people coming our ways just because we tweet, or speak about Islam. I know and you know your reality.



There's no time in the life of a believer wherein he sighs with relief about the state of his eeman. It is an endless pursuit ended by death.



When the scrolls will be laid open and our deeds will be exposed to the minutest detail, then man will know whether he was riding on a mule or a donkey.



Yaa muqallib al-Quloob (O, changer of hearts) Thabbit Qalbee 'alaa Deenik (steady my heart in Your Religion)."A common dua of our Nabiy(saw)



And in conclusion, I say: 



Fasatadhkuroona maaaa aqoolu lakum-And u will remember what I am telling you.
