especially to all my dearest brothers and sisters across the globe :D
First of all, lets us say 'ALHAMDULILAH' in our hearts for Allah still give His blessing of Islam to us until this very moment !!
For those who aren't islam yet ^^ thank you so much for be here . I pray to Allah that He will soon puts the light in your heart as Allah is the most Merciful.
So, in shaa Allah .. I will be sharing as much as I can get from my reading of Tanbihul Ghafilin Book :)
Quite a scaring thing for mos of us when we first think about it right. Not just when we were a child but up until now I'm sure we still worry about at some point.
But, just worrying about it will not help us as much really. What we understand and the path we choose to take is the absolute key in dealing with death when the time comes for each one of us
The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said:
“Whoever loves to meet Allah, Allah loves to meet him. Whoever is averse to meeting Allah, Allah is averse to meeting him.” [Jami at-Tirmidhi]
Our prophet Muhammad (pbuh) explain to us regarding this hadith that it refer to the time when the angel of death come to take our soul. Those who love to meet Allah when he hear the good news that have been brought to him at the moment, that is the person that Allah love to meet but does who hate to meet Allah at that moment after he receive the bad news then that is the person that Allah also hate to meet :)
When Allah love us, he make us busy with zikr and we will always remember Him at any condition. We trust and believe in Him
Abu Laits said :
" Those who believe in death should prepare himself with good deeds and stay away from bad deeds since he do not know when the death will come upon him "
The messenger of Allah said :
“Take benefit of five before five: Your youth before your old age, your health before your sickness, your wealth before your poverty, your free time before you are preoccupied, and your life before your death”(Narrated by Ibn Abbas and reported by Al Hakim)
Just from this one hadith, it can bring a great impact in our routine. Most of us should already have the experience with sickness. Remember how weak we are at the moment and how we are unable to do things that we can during we healthy ?
some of us who have become old, ahhh how we wish that we can become young again right ?
Try to bring this thought in your head and you will see what is prophet trying to said :)
We humans, our mind have been lead in such a way, even if we think about death, its hardly affect our heart. I'm talking about humans in this age of technology. Even animals can understand this better if they have the same knowledge .
Prophet (Pbuh) said :
" If animals know about death as you know about it, you will surely cannot eat fat meats forever "
Death brings quite a pain you know :)
In one hadith , when prophet Isa by the will of Allah revive Sam Ibn Nuh, Sam said that the pain of death, he can still felt it although that he have died 4000 years ago.
My brothers and sisters,
we cannot help to feel afraid when we feel that death is coming to get us, yes it a normal feeling that most of us have. Even me, I still really worry about it.
But as I said, worrying will bring us nowhere. Use that feeling to open the path that leads our life to Allah .
OPEN AND RECITE THE QURAN YOU LEFT YEARS AGO
START PRAYING FOR ALLAH' S SAKE
BE KIND TO OTHERS
TREATS YOUR PARENTS WELL
EDUCATE YOUR CHILDREN ABOUT ISLAM
PAY YOUR ZAKAT
Do !! Just do it.. Do good deeds, even if you feel that its not sincerely for Allah. Do not stop, keep doing it and keep praying that Allah will accept it and make your heart at ease :)
thank you so much ^_^
for any advise to me, please just say it in the
