In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful, Master of the Day of Judgment.Reply
For those of you who are about to graduate from high school ask yourself:
"What have I truly learnt?"
Were you the one socializing or the one hiding?
Was there a beneficial outcome to be brought forward on the Day of Judgment?
Or did the social aspect bring you into the negative?
What I ask you all to do is to muster the strength to think in the Name of Allah and ponder what little time you have left.
If you are to live out the next 4 years of your life, these years will either hurt you or help you.
Before we start, we must understand the WHY
Allah says in the Qur'an that he has not created mankind and jinn other than to WORSHIP and OBEY Him.
Forever remind yourselves and each other until Allah sends his messenger, the Angel of Death to take our souls, what our purpose for waking up and breathing is.
Alhamdulillah - All prase is due to Allah.
Subhanallah - Glory be to Allah.
Allahuakbar - Allah is the greatest.
Who has given you what you have? Allah the Most Kind.
Does Allah not love you?
The food that you eat. Meat, bread, and sweets.
The covers that you snuggle with at night.
Have you ever been liked or loved by anyone?
Do your parents treat you kindly? Has there been anything you ever truly wanted, that you did not get?
Allah has given you all this and more, and what have you done to please Allah, The Most High?
Would you rather miss an exam, or miss Asr?
In other words, would you rather miss a grade, or miss Asr?
Would you rather get an hour more of sleep, or miss Fajr?
Establish Salat, obey your parents, struggle in the name of Allah.
How many prayers have we missed? Myself included.
Again, remind yourself: "What am I doing here?"
Allah has not created mankind or jinn other than to worship and obey him.
So now, IF you are to survive until the Fajr prayer tomorrow, until the end of this semester, or until you graduate from University,
What will you do in these four years?
With all that Allah has given you, what will you do for Him?
Remember, the things you have now were the things you had once hoped for.
