A Moment of Thought
we should consider the extent to which we actually follow the Holy Qur'aan
in which we profess to have such faith, and
how much concern and regard we sincerely have for its commandments.
Could it be that
on the Day of Judgement, as according to the following verses
of the Holy Qur'aan, our
sallallahu alayhi wasallam says
Lord' My Ummah forsook this Qur'aan.... (25:30)
and it is our belief that
on the Day of Judgement,
we will all have to face Him
and to be held
accountable for our each and every action. How
then do we expect to meet Him?
not say to us:I
revealed to you clearly
all the etiquettes of living your lives and made clear the differences
and Haraam. How
closely then did you follow My
How much did your
character, thoughts, and actions reflect the fear of accountability before
Day of Judgement we will face our beloved Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wasallam as
the sun unbearably close over us, it
will be a day of unimaginable difficulty, torment and unendurable thirst.
He will lead us all to
the well of Kawthar
to drink. But
have we ever thought of how we shall face him? We,
who have spent
our whole lives ignoring his teachings and never taking any steps to implement
them in our lives; how
can we honestly expect him to quench our thirst with his own blessed hands.
How can we expect
that he will intervene on our behalf when we will meet him bent under the
burden of our sins? Have
we followed his teachings in our lifestyle, our appearance, our manner
of dressing, or in anything else in our lives?
