Somthing I read, thought it would be interesting to share it with all of you.
800 Km Away From Hell !
(A Real Experience)
A brother in Saudi Arabia went to pray in one of the Masjids there.
After the prayer a sheikh (the one clean corpses) there stood up and
said he wants to tell a story. He said he and his friends left Riyad
to travel to another town. They were going on a trip to Dammam. He
swears by the One that they were leaving to do things that Allah does
not accept (sins).
He says they passed by a sign that says Dammam 300 Km. His friends
said 300 Km to Dammam but he said that he reads Hell 300 Km. His
friends laughed at him but he was serious. They continue and then
comes another sign saying Dammam 200 Km. He looks and again it says
Hell 200 Km. He told his friends and they told him to stop and not
spoil the trip. The sign Dammam 100 Km appeared and again he saw it
Hell 100 Km. He asked them to drop him here because he doesn't want to
continue this strange trip. His heart was giving strange beats. He
He left them and crossed the highway to the other side to go back to
Riyad. He waited to get a lift for a while. A man stopped and picked
him up. The man looked very sad. Our friend wanted to change this guys
mood so he started to laugh with him and then asked what was wrong. He
said I passed by a car accident and never in my life have I seen one
worse in my life. He described a car similar to that of his friends.
It was his friends all dead.
He left Riyad with the intention of sinning and returned with the
intention of never sinning Allah Almighty. He told the people
listening in the Masjid that you all tell yourselves that you are
still young. He said he was lucky because Allah Almighty gave him an
example. He told them but Allah might give your friends an example of
your evil death.
So brothers and sisters lets not wait for Allah's blessings come to
us. Lets go and reach out for Allah and make our deaths a good example
for our friends not an evil one. May Allah give us a good death.
