In Allah We Trust!
taking from another forum...
Assalamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullahee wa Barakatu
It does not matter how cold the winters are and how much snow is coming from the air and how freezing cold the air feels and how scary the fog might be, we trust in Allah Subhanahu wa ta'ala and hold tight to our Iman with the goal in mind to strive for the sake of Allah.
It does not matter strong the wind blows and it does not matter how heavy the Tsunami waves are, we still belong to Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala and we wish to meet Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala. And we trust in him.
Our goal is to live according to the Will of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala submitting to him with love, fear of his punishment and hope for his mercy. Allah is the One who know what we need. We know that we have do fulfil our duties to feed the hungry and reading and following al-Qur'an. If we fulfil our duties then Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala might choose for us the death of a martyr. We will arise from our seed which means that Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala will leave us decomposing in our graves until everything of our body is decomposed except a tiny piece of the body. This is the seed we will grow from on the Day of Arising. So let us trust in Rabbil 'Alameen.
We all know that Allah Subhanahu wa ta'ala is the most just. He orders us to enjoin good and to forbid evil when a sin is exposed. If a person commits a major sin in the public then he exposes his sin, then enjoining good and forbidding evil is a must but if the major sin is committed in private then it is better to conceal that sin from the public. We need to be active in Dawah and other activities such as feeding the homeless, visiting the sick and comforting the dying before Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala takes away our own health and strength. If we work for the sake of Allah and if we remember death regularily then we will be content in this life and in the afterlife. One of the biggest fitan in this life is lust, so let us supress lust and excessive compassion. In Allah we trust.
If we work for Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala then he will give us self-esteem and he will show us the straight path and he will let us walk over the Traverse, La Sirat without difficulty. Let us be follow the straight path like the Friend of Allah, Ibraheem aleihi Assalamualikum. "Let's prepare for our requiem" means that we have to prepare for death and we need to be aware that someday a Janaza prayer will be prayed for you and me. We do not prepare for the funeral but we prepare for the time after death. It is amazing people are sleeping and they wake up when they die. Let us awake from our day dreaming. If you want that Allah Subhanahu wa ta'ala shows us what ArRahman and ArRaheem means, then you have to trust in Allah by keeping his commandment following the way of Rasulullah sallallahu aleihi wassallam.
I urge you to avoid to walk the same path like the children of Isra'eel did. We must stop with our transgressions against Rabbinnaas before the Angel of Death is sent by Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala to take our soul. We need to be aware that the angel Israfeel or Serafiel is already prepared to blow that horn or trumpet that will bring the Hour. Let us follow that message that Jibreel conveyed to Muhammad sallallahu aleihi wassallam and let us love the angel Mika'eel. If we keep the commandment of Allah and if we love the messengers, the angels and the message of Allah then we might have the mercy of Allah, InshaAllah, and Allah will grant us a wonderful place in Paradise and we will be able to taste the spring of Salsabeel and Kafur and we will be able to enjoy our eternal peace. Isra'eel aleihi Assalamualikum was a prophet of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala and a slave of Allah. He trusted in Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala, so let us trust in him as well.
Let us be pleased with Allah as our Lord and with Muhammad as the Messenger of Allah and with Islam as our way of life and with al-Qur'an as our Imam, the guidance for the Muttaqeen, God-conscious. Let us trust in Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala.
Lets Praise Our Creator!!!:)
