Departed Souls

*READING TIME..*
ARTICLE-26

*DURING THIS QUARANTINE TIME,*
*LETS STAY HOME AND BE SAFE AND DO SOME QUALITY READING TO INCREASE OUR KNOWLEDGE….*

EVERYDAY
SPARE A MOMENT TO REMEMBER
*THE DEPARTED SOULS*
OF YOUR BELOVED ONES
AND ASK FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF ALLAH UPON THEM

When we have lived among people whom we used to see every now and then, we come to a point that we feel like something is missing when we haven’t seen them which makes the separation from them
*Hard and painful.*

Our life is temporary here in the dunya,
We are all bound to die,
We are all bound to leave our belongings here,
We indeed travel as strangers in this world, for indeed, our home is in the akhirah, [jannah or jahanam].

Muhammad ﷺ said;
“When a man dies, his good deeds come to an end except three:
*Ongoing Charity,*
*Beneficial Knowledge and* *Righteous Offspring who will pray for him.”*

[Sahih Muslim 3084]

Each one of us, is a son or a daughter of someone, Indeed we can pray for our parents,
Let our good deeds embark with our du’as that would *reach our parents* when they or when they have already departed from this dunya.

We all have a duty to one another, teach one another, help one another, guide one another, we are but brothers and sisters in faith, our du’as are our weapons and our ‘ilm and amal are our protection from the temptations of Shaitan.
in sha Allaah.
So you, young soul,
*Make it a habit of everyday to spare a moment to remember the departed souls of your beloved ones and ask for the Forgiveness of Allah upon them.*

Remember
In a matter of time,
We shall be gathering with them,
so live this day as if it’s your last,
pray with a purified heart, worship with a sincere intention,
praise and exalt Allaah and ask for His Forgiveness in abundance.

Save your soul now,
Teach what you know about the deen, help build a masjid, or give out Qur’an books, or help feed the poor, shelter an orphan, you are able to do many things to, small or big, as long as it is sincerely done, then in sha Allaah it would help you in the akhirah.
in sha Allaah.

And when you are married, guide and advice your children out of the Fear of Allaah, so they may increase their taqwa and eagerness to learn about the deen, and see to it that you *practice what you preach,* that you yourself, become a model for them to look at, better your character everyday, so that they may reflect upon your children.
in sha Allaah.

And I end this with this verse from the Qur’an;

*Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un.*
*Surely to Allaah we belong and to Him shall we return.*
[2:156]

and we pray that we are able to do good deeds out of sincere intention of helping one another for the betterment of understanding the Deen, and that we are able to withstand what we preach by practicing it, that our character becomes upright with every salah that we do.
in sha Allaah.

*Ya Allah,*
*You are Al Ghafoor*
*Al Ghaffar*
*Ar Rahman*
*Ar Raheem*
*Al Afuww,*
*You love to forgive so please forgive the souls of our beloved ones, and may you forgive us all.*

*Aameen*
