In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Tell me, What will benefit you more in the grave:
~ Applying make-up to look good for stranger’s in public whilst out with friend’s or pleasing Allah SWT by washing your face for wudu to complete your salah on time?
~ Wasting time aimlessly or giving basic dawah?
~ Working a job which include’s unliked thing’s by Allah SWT or giving it up so you are able to live a halal life with trust in Allah that you will receive something better from him?
~ Judging other’s fault’s publicly or kindly helping them correct a mistake in private?
~ Spending your hard earned saved cash on a world cruise or completing 1 of the 5 pillar’s of Islam by going on Hajj?
~ Removing your hijab for a job interview or remain wearing it because you were created to please Allah SWT, not the work place?
~ Wasting food for a silly trend (youtube videos included!) or putting it to good use in a recipe to donate food to a charity/soup kitchen or even a neighbour?
~ Using your God given talent on haram or using it to better the world we live in in an islamic organisation?
~ Making excuse’s to make the haram halal or putting all that effort into actually doing the correct halal action’s to please Allah SWT, your creator?!
This life is very short. Of course it’s not easy! Was anything worth getting (i.e. Jannah, in this case) ever easy?! If the ummah put more effort into pleasing ALLAH SUBHANA WA TALA rather than our fellow being’s and THINK of where we will eventually end we would be much stronger, happier people!
Remember that once you are in your grave, that time will exceed your life time (think of those who already passed away), the exam is over, everyone will have left you, there’s no extra time to get a few extra deed’s in, no one can protect you, all those people you tried to inpress won’t remember you, and you will be left there saying “if only I had done X Y Z”…” if ONLY i had put Allah SWT over all else in the dunya” …do you want to be there full of regret's or there thinking "I did and give everything I could!"
Don’t be a loser, be a winner!
