In the Name of Allaah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.
Allaah forgives not that partners should be ascribed to Him in any form except for those who come to Him with a sincere repentance.
Our closeness to Allaah is our distance from ourselves.
He who worships Allaah for Allaah's sake and not for minor shirk (fame and fortune) will be pampered by Allaah.
We must learn to do things for the pleasure of Allaah lest shirk sets in.
He who dies while guilty of major shirk (visiting and believing in soothsayers, fortune-tellers, horoscopes, black magic, worshipping evil spirits, blood rituals etc) will never meet the mercy of Allaah.
Brothers and sisters in Islam, there is concession for every sinner but the sinner that dies ascribing partners with Allaah. Neither was there concession for the father of the friend of Allaah, Ibrahim (AS) nor was it presented for the son of Nuh and wives of Nuh and Lut (AS) because they died in a state of shirk and kufr.
Save yourself and loved ones from falling into the abyss of shirk wherein there are only layers of darkness with no glimmer of light.
