For how long are we going to do, what we do?
For how long, for how long are we going to be heedless of the signs of Allaah (SWT)
for how long are we going to be busy with the Dunya (World),
busy making money, chasing our dreams, following our desires?
We know my brothers and sisters that death is a reality;
you can’t run away from death,
even if you were in a fortress with wall built up high, death is going to come and find you.
Imagine your time is today, what have you got to take back to Allaah (SWT),
have you repented for your sins, for this temporarily life.
You have given up eternal bliss and eternal happiness, life which never ends.
My dear brothers and sisters,
even if the hereafter was soil and mud and this dunya was gold and silver,
still the hereafter will be better than this dunya,
because it is eternal, for reality is;
this dunya is mud and soil and the hereafter is gold and silver, and yet,
we choose this life over the next, are we asleep,
why are we walking around like headless chickens, we will be brought to account.
On the day when everyone will be a stranger to another,
when your best friend in this dunya will be a stranger to you in the next,
when your mother is going to abandon you,
just to save herself, the day, when every small action that you ever did,
you will be showed, every atom weight of good and every atom weight of evil.
My dear brothers and sisters, this is the promised day of Allaah (SWT),
doesn’t your heart tremble with fear,
knowing that you will be brought to account and how you will die and that’s how you will be raised,
that day when a Childs hair will turn grey due to the shock and fear,
what will be your excuse on that day?
When your limbs, your own legs are going to give witness against you,
when your lips are going to be sealed and your legs are going to speak and say,
‘Ya Allaah, he made me walk to this haram’
and your own hands are going to say, ‘Ya Allaah, he used me to touch this haram,
on that day my dear brothers and sisters, there is no refuge, except with Allaah (SWT).
There is no escape, so take heed before your time is up,
We ask Allaah (SWT) to make us amongst the Saabiquns,
the group of people who race each other to good deeds
these people will closest to Allaah (SWT) in the next life.
