God forbid but just imagine, during this break of yours you think you have plenty of time, oh well Allah swt says He is the merciful of the merciful and i am still young so let me go and get into a few relationships date girls here and there get up to thigs like people in their youth do, let me be more concerned about getting drunk and going to clubs and neglecting all of God's commandments cos i believe in God and i know He is the merciful and after i have got it all out of my system and im a bit older then i will just turn to Him again and when i have white hairs i'll pray 5 times a day and then go hajj and there you go the doors of jannah will be welcoming me...
what if Allah swt has decreed for your time to be up tomorrow or even next week whilst your on this break of yours? what then did they ever cross your mind when you were considering or decided to take a break?
how can anyone take a break from the Almighty Lord, who is the All knower, all seer, the all hearer. do not ever mke the mistake of forgetting that Allah swt is ALWAYS watching and each and every action, word thought gets recorded. why decide to walk the path to eternal ****ation?
why do some people act our or make out the religion as in islam is such a struggle when it is the most beautiful thing!
Wallah just reading this thread angered me a little, i am sitting here going through depression thinking my imaan is weak and doing anything and everything to try and make it strong again then you have people like you who want to take a break to enjoy life and commit sin lol!
Astaghfirullah i am 22 myself i would say i am pretty young too the only salvation i have got in life the only true meaning i have got and the only peace i have had is through God through worshipping Him through turning to Him and striving hard as best as i can to abide His laws and commands.
I know that the straight path is a much harder than the path to eternal doom, everyday we are engaged in our own personal jihad against the accursed shaytaan... let him not defeat you, you have to win the battle, tell me brother is this enjoyment of your youth in this temporary world worth Allah swt's wrath? is it really worth you losing jannah as your eternal abode and ending up in the fire of hell (God forbid)
Take heed dont be fooled by the desires of shaytaan turn to Allah and ask for forgiveness and protection from shaytaan's evil whispers and from their presence around you, safeguard yourself with salah, with dhikr and with dua.
those short worldy enjoyments are not worth it believe you me, those girls would not be no where near worth it, that few drinks and feeling of intoxication is no where near worth it, that night out dancing away to blasphemous music is nowhere near worth it, the all never last they all pass, but jannah is everlasting. how can someone give up that eternal paradise for 2 mins of fun? how is that even fun or enjoyment thats what i fail to understand it is nothing but ways of the shaytaan distracting you and guiding u to his evil path where u are harming no one, but YOURSELF!
No soul bares the burden of another souls sins, we get accounted for what our own hands have earned, so to be quite honest with you it wouldnt even matter to us what you do, but you are a member of our ummah and at times we need reminders from other people to realise. I pray for you brothe i pray that Insha'Allah Allah swt guides you and protects you from the evil whispers of shaytaan and helps you through this.
