Deception of Dunia and Death

“So when ‘As-Saakhah’ comes. That day a man will flee from his brother, from his mother and his father, from his wife and his children. That day every man shall have enough to make him careless of others.” [Surah Al-Abasa: 33-37]

***
If nothing else happens to us, death definitely will without any doubt. We work so hard for other things in life and put so much thought into those things… selecting a tuxedo, a dress for a certain event etc. But we hardly take a moment, pause and ask ourselves the question  that has our last Salah been accepted? Was our dealing with a Muslim/non-Muslim  in the manner Allah SWT has ordained? Where did we spend the ’empty’ slots of our day? Did we waste His blessings of health and time?

Simply put, we care about things that do not require that care and we do not care for things which require care.

Every one shall taste death […] The life of this world is only the enjoyment of deception (a deceiving thing).” [Surah Ale Imraan, 3:185].

How many more reminders do we need so that we budge from our current lifestyle to the lifestyle of the wise ones? How many reminders do we need before He SWT sends His Punishment or makes us die in our state of ignorance?

Everyday is a gift. Treat it as a gift and be grateful!
