In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful…
In preparation to the upcoming visit by Shaikh Khalid Yasin, here’s a little video by this great brother.
One thing we can ALL (Muslim, Christian, Jew, Atheist, etc) agree on is: EVERYONE WILL DIE!
As Allah says in the Qur’an:
“Everyone shall taste death. And only on the Day of Resurrection shall you be paid your wages in full. And whoever is removed away from the fire and admitted to Paradise, he indeed is successful. The life of this world is only the enjoyment of deception (a deceiving thing).”
(Qur’an Al-Imran 3:185)
Allah makes a promise in the Quran:
“Wherever you are death will find you out, even if you are in the towers built up strong and high…”
(Qur’an An-Nisa 4:11)
Death is something we must all reflect on. We much often remind ourselves just how short this life really is. We often run around, accumulating the material goods of this world, as if we will reside here forever. We often put this world ahead of the next; by forsaking prayers because of our job. We often please those around our at the expense of displeasing our Creator.
Let’s wake up my brothers and sisters and remember that our stay on this Earth is very limited. No one knows how long they will reside here, and after we die, eternity awaits. Let’s prepare for it.
May Allah open our eyes before it is too late and guide us to the straight path!
