Reflect Now and Make That Change
Reflect Now and Make That Change – Don’t throw away the one life you got for this world, this temporary abode for the next part of your life, after you “die”. In other words.. don’t live for this world which is temporary, live for the hereafter, where your life is truly eternal.
Eternal bliss or eternal hell, that though, is your freedom of choice. And this world is but a test of the decision you make..
This is the message of Islam in its most simplest form
Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from Error: whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah hath grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold, that never breaks. And Allah heareth and knoweth all things. Quran 2:256
(we have the freedom of choice) & We just here to give the message, & to remind the believers of their duty and their obligations & to fear Allah alone doing it.
Let there arise out of you a group of people inviting to all that is good, and forbidding all that is evil. And it is they who are the successful” [Aal ‘Imraan 3:104]
To enjoin all that is good and forbid all that is evil, that should be the duty of all who are muslims. Our fighting in the path of Allah, only goes to those who are oppressed, those who were wronged. Our main jihad though is against our own self.. Our nafs. We can’t preach to others if we don’t have Allah consciences within ourselves. That what lead the previous nations astray . They had no fear of Allah’s wrath based on the decisions they made, they made themselves one with Allah and or higher than Him even. Astagfirullah!
This problem has creeped in our ummah. This virus.. and we wonder why we are the way we are today. We have lost Allah consciences in our societies. We need to install this in our kids our families and those around us. First and foremost though we need to instill in ourselves. In a narration, Nabi (salallahu alyhi wasallam) pointed to his chest and stated 3x (to emphasize the point) purity is in here!
In your soul. This begins with Allah consciousness, knowing that even though we can’t see HIM, HE indeed sees us. This is what first and foremost rasoolallah salallahu alyhi wasallam did even before spreading any message, pondered on, & feared Allah first.
The plot of the kuffars is to break the family unit. Break the stability that hold the family together, in the name of freedom and independence. We as the ummah have fallen hook line and sinker for this ploy! How we are going to answer to Allah as the ummah of rasoolallah salallahu alyhi wasallam?
How we going to “face” our beloved messenger? If we have any conscience left as muslims, we should be seriously asking ourselves this question. “From HIM we came and to Him is our return. We came with nothing , we should follow the pattern and leave your world behind in the trust of Allah alone, & in the message given by Allah in our Nabi salallahu alyhi wasallam. We should return with nothing except perfect trust of Allah alone, and in the message HE brought to us via HIS most beloved final messenger.
This is why Nabi salallahu alyhi wasallam was the most perfect human and prophet of Allah. HIS most beloved, he had that perfect trust in Allah alone. The companions after him, had perfect trust in Allah alone and the message of Allah brought by HIS beloved .
The companions after him thus were brought into perfection within their individual self through this, & were forgiven . This message of course spread to the Tabieen, & the Tab e Tabieen. This made them, as said by rasoolallah salallahu alyhi wasallam to be the path we follow.
As a ummah what we portray to those around us, makes a significant impact. Your thoughts speech and actions don’t only concern you, but has an adverse affect on those around you. This starts with the individual itself. We need to awaken from this slumber, this hypnotic trance that we are in, standing up as the invidual self, for all that is good and forbidding all that is evil . Starting with yourself . And the key that starts this proverbial engine, is Allah consciousness.
