Life, in the shade of the Islamic Creed, has taught me
That in this life every beginning has an end
No matter how long we stay together we finally depart, and for every pleasure we experience there’s an end
This point at which things become fully complete is also the point at which they begin to get smaller and smaller, so be prepared for it
Look at the newborn… when they come into life come with them joy and happiness
And the adhan is uttered in their ear
Not long after that,
they are carried to the mosque to be prayed over
As if he has never laughed
As if he has never had fun with others
As if he has never rejoiced with others
It’s as if his life was as short as the time between the adhan and the prayer
La illah illa Allah, it’s a short life!
The adhan is called when a child is born, and the prayer is delayed until his death
is a proof that his life is short just like the time between the adhan and the prayer
While one, at one night, may be happy and safe surrounded by his family, breaking to them the news about others
At another night he is all alone
There’s no money, no children, no company, no friends with them except their deeds
Then the news is broke to him
He was breaking the news about others, now the news is broke to him
While the physician was treating the disease, and has himself caught it
Then neither his medical degree nor his medicine would avail him
And unexpectedly he is being treated for the disease he was treating others for
What is amiss with the doctor that he died from the same disease he before was curing others of!
All died; the doctor, the patient, the medicine sellers, the medicine buyers and the medicine importers!
You are nothing, by Allah, but a piece of ice
Melting away as if it has never existed
One day one will become a body without the soul
If you are to wail, then wail for yourself, you poor thing!
You will die even if you are to be granted a long life as Noah’s
Be on guard, life will come to you suddenly! Life is short.
And get the words “I will” and “until” out of your mind, they are tricky diseases
So fear Allah, and don’t be concerned about this life which is short
Death is near; If not today, tomorrow
Death is a door; and all people will enter through that door
And beyond every door there’s an abode indeed
There is no abode for a person after death which he will live in except that which he used to build before death
So if he builds it with good, his abode will become delightful and if he builds it with evil the builder will certainly fail
Death was decreed for all creatures. How many lives has it claimed?
Where are Nimrod and Kan`an right now? Where are those who were mighty in the earth?
Where are those kings and mighty hunters? They all were destroyed. Their trickery didn’t avail them
Where are the people of wisdom and piety? Where are the people of knowledge and the first Generation of Muslims?
They will all return to Allah, rewarded each one according to their deeds
Go against your low desires …. it is disliked although it is beneficial
When will you stay away from sins? When? When?
