Reality of our Life and Death
One day of the many days. There was a man traveling
on a trip with his Wife and Kids. And on the way he met
someone standing in the roadway. So he asked him:
Who are you? He said: I am the money.
So the man asked his wife and kids: Should we ask him
to ride with us? They said together: Yes of course because
with the money it can help us if we wanted to do anything
and if we wanted to get anything we desired. So they took
the Money to ride with them.
And the vehicle continued its way until the man met someone
else on the road. So the Father asked: Who are you? He said:
I am the high position and power.
So the father asked his wife and kids: Should we ask him to ride
with us? So they all answered together in one voice: Yes of course
because with the high position and power we have the ability to
do anything we want and own anything we desired. So they took
the high position and power with them. And the vehicle continued
to finish its trip.
And likewise he met in the same manner many people which give
the pleasures and desires of this life, until... They met one person
on the way... The Father asks him Who are you? He said:
I am Deen-e-Islam (Religion Islam).
So the father, wife, and kids said all together in one voice: No,
no this isn't the time, we desire the pleasures of this life and
world (Dunya), and the Deen will prevent us and ban us from
these things and it will take control over us, and we will be
worn-out from being loyal to it and its learning. And
the Halal (Lawful) and the Haram (Forbidden), and this
thing prayer and that thing Hijab, and this fasting , and and and
and and etc, It will be a burden upon us!
But what is certain is that we will definitely return for you to
pick you up but only after we enjoy this life and everything in it.
So sadly they left him behind and the vehicle continued its trip.
And out of no where something appeared in the middle of the road.
It was a check point in the road and it had a sign saying, STOP!
And they found a man gesturing for the father to get out of the vehicle.
So the man said to the father: The trip has ended as far as you are
concerned! And it is upon you to get out and come with me.
The father was shocked with fear and didn't say a word.
So the man said to him: I am searching for the Deen-e-Islam.
Is he with you?
He answered: No I left him not too far back. So if you can let me go back,
I can get him for you. You do not have the ability to go back,
your trip has ended and there is no going back now. returning is
impossible said the man.
But I have, money, high position and power, My Wife, My Kids, and
and and and and and on.
The man said to him: They will not benefit you nor will they protect
you in front of Allah (SWT). Not one bit!
And you will leave all of this, and not one of them will help you
except for the Deen-e-Islam you know? The one which you left back
in the road. So the father asked: And who are you exactly?
I AM DEATH
The one which you were needless of and didn't take into account
in your trip!
The father looked at his vehicle and found his wife taking control
of it and continuing the trip with all of its passengers but him. And
none of them stayed with him, and none of them helped him in any way.
Prophet of Islam, Muhammad (pbuh) said: The worse of people is
the one who trades his next world for enjoyment of this world,
and worse than him is the one who trades his next world for
enjoyment of someone else (in this world).
Allah (SWT), the Majestic said: "Say: If your fathers and your sons
and your brethren and your mates and your kinsfolk and property
which you have acquired, and the slackness of trade which you fear
and dwellings which you like, are dearer to you than Allah and
His Messenger and striving in His way, then wait till Allah brings
about His command: and Allah does not guide the transgressing people.
" Noble Qur'an (9:24)
Allah (SWT), the Majestic said: "Every soul shall taste of death, and
you shall only be paid fully your reward on the resurrection day;
then whoever is removed far away from the fire and is made to
enter the garden he indeed has attained the object; and the life of
this world is nothing but a provision of vanities."
Noble Qur'an (3:185)
Allah (SWT), the Majestic said: "And leave those who have taken
their religion for a play and an idle sport, and whom this world's life
has deceived, and remind (them) thereby lest a soul should be given
up to destruction for what it has earned:"
Noble Qur'an (6:70)
