Oh youth! Where is your life heading?
Where is your life heading?: It’s all fun, intriguing and exciting now, but have you thought about your future in the long run?
Being a badass, flaunting your wealth, gangster-style, chatting up girls and boys, hit up spontaneous dinners and chill-out sessions may feel good now and increases your ego. But will it keep you happy forever?
Girls being brash and forward, losing their hayaa.
Guys hanging around company that deals with intoxicates, thinking it’s fun and part of a chill session until it becomes an addiction. So addicted, it pulls you off track and into the depths of darkness.
Your nafs (desires) are like a dark cloud following you down the avenue.
Oh Youth! You’re so eager to leave your mark in this world, not realizing that mark is just a temporary desire. A desire which is leading you nowhere but Hell itself.
Freedom is attractive, but if it’s not within the laws of Islam, it will lead to a life of fulfilling your desires without being Allah-conscious. You will have a bitter attitude towards life, people and, most of all, your faith.
Is losing your deen not important?
Have you gone so far from your faith that you never contemplated the hereafter and the consequences of neglecting your faith?
Throughout the Quran, we find stories of young people standing up and making their mark upon the world. Many of them fighting fearlessly for the sake of Allah and introducing change for the better.
You must realise what is eternity and what is temporary.
Qur’aan will heal you permanently if you give it preference over temporary pleasures.
Salaah will bring comfort to your life if you perform with sincerity and full conviction.
It is the key to all your problems, yet you search for comfort and serenity in people or things and are still never satisfied.
Perform your salaah properly, clear your mind of everything and focus only on Allah.
Inner peace lies in sujood, not selfishness. You will reap the benefits and see the barakah (blessings) that come out of it, in shaa Allah, if performed with the right mindset, sincerity and humbleness.
The change it can bring is far greater than the pleasures of this world.
It will reward you immensely in dunya and aakhirah.
Friends, intoxicates, music and late nights with bad company will not intercede on your behalf.
On the Day of Judgement, everyone will be fighting for themselves. Will defend themselves.
It will be too late to bring a positive change in your life. The only path you would be heading to is the path you created with your ignorance and being oblivious to Allah’s Mercy.
“A Muslim should never compromise his Deen. He will be amongst the losers if he bypasses Allah Ta’ala’s wise legislation”.
Your goal changes to become Allah-conscious, you will automatically cut off all the things that bring harm to you spiritually and physically.
You will start to see the light through darkness.
When that change makes an appearance in your actions, you will find that some people may try to break you; but remember life unfolds with patience.
Without sabr (patience), life will be filled with obstacles that we can’t overcome.
Your relationship with Allah Ta’ala needs to be kept strong. If you lose focus, mend it. Don’t just leave it and allow it to be erased.
Oh Allah! We have foolishly put over our heads umbrellas of sins, which are depriving us of the rains of Your Rahmah (Mercy).
Oh Allah! We want your Rahmah (Mercy) and Barakah (blessings).
Oh Allah! Drench us in the rains of your Rahmah. Aameen.
Remember this sinful slave in your esteemed duas, in shaa Allah.
