He died. The End?
May 4th, 2008
Or is it? Sometimes we may feel that theres only so much good deeds we can do before death but once we finished its the end, khalas, we aint going nowhere. However there is hope.
Abu Huraira [radiAllahu anhu] reported Allah’s Messenger [salAllahu alayhi wa salam] as saying:
When a man dies, his acts come to an end, but three, recurring charity, or knowledge (by which people) benefit, or a pious son, who prays for him (for the deceased).
So we should try right now before we die, to implement all three of these inshaAllah as these will pay off in the long run, in the long long run. Invest in a ongoing charity such as a masjid, gain knowledge and teach it to people so they may benefit. If you cant teach physically, even make a website that has a hadeeth a day or something and also if you have a child, do your upmost to instill love of Allah into them as loving Allah will in turn will make them love their parents and in turn they will naturally pray for you.
Even if you think you havnt done much in terms of rewards in this dunya, try to implement these three as every soul shall indeed taste death and in terms of deeds…maybe its not actually over *smiles*
