O Muslim! You are bound to die

*READING TIME..*
ARTICLE-27

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

*O MUSLIM*
*YOU ARE BOUND TO DIE.*
*THIS IS THE TRUTH, SO PREPARE FOR IT.*

*Yes, you are bound to die, from the day you were born you were already dying. You are but a number of days, O sound soul.*
*THIS IS THE TRUTH.*

Stop comforting yourself with a lie, with a false hope, it has been mentioned in the Qur’ān that we shall taste death and that we are to return to Our Creator.

Muhammad ﷺ said;

“Verily, each one of you is formed in his mother’s womb forty days as a drop, then he is something suspended for a similar period, then he is a piece of flesh like a chewed piece of meat for another period of forty days, then the angel is sent to insert the soul.
*This angel is ordered to record four things:*
*The sustenance which he will receive during his lifetime,*
*The length of his life,*
*All actions that he will do,*
*And whether he will end up miserable (in hell) or joyous (in paradise).*

I swear by the One other than whom there is no deity, one of you may do the works of the people of paradise right up until there is only an arm’s length between him and paradise, but his destiny overtakes him, so he does the actions of the poeple of the fire and enters it.
And, verily, one of you may do the works of the people of hell until there is nothing between them and hell except for one arm’s length, but his destiny overtakes him, and so he does the works of the people of paradise, and enters it.”
[Muslim]

We are bound to leave this dunya, so let us prepare for our departure, indeed we are but travelers of this dunya, this is a temporary world for us.
*Plant your seeds in Jannah,*
Pack your bags with good deeds, prepare O Muslim, prepare because anytime the Angel of Death will knock upon your door.

*By Allāh, indeed everything has been decreed.*
Let us keep ourselves reminded of our destiny, that
*To Allāh we belong and indeed to Allāh we shall return,*
So do deeds that will make this journey back to Our Lord, an easy returning.
By Allāh, we should not keep ourselves at ease that we can do it tomorrow, that we can change tomorrow,
*DO NOT PROCRASTINATE, THE ANGEL OF DEATH DOESN’T !*

*Let us make abundant du’ā for everything, for forgiveness.*

Muhammad ﷺ said;

*[1] “Nothing but Du’ā averts decree; nothing but righteousness prolongs life; and indeed, a man is deprived of a provision due to a sin he commits.” [Al-Hakim]*

*[2] “Supplicate to Allāh with absolute belief that your Du’ā will be accepted. And know that Allāh Subhānahū wa Ta’ālā does not answer a Du’ā that comes from a careless and inattentive heart.” [Tirmidhī]*

and we pray that we find the heart that yearns to better in all aspects, that we may not be ignorant of the fact that *Our time in this dunya is running out with each passing day.*
in sha Allāh.
