In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

Are you ready for your turn?


Just imagine someone you knew and he collapsed in front of you.

You thought he would shake it off and get up from his fall. People passing by did not care. To your surprise, he never got up. You have tried talking to him, but he just wouldn't reply.

The ambulance personnel came and couldn't save him from dying by doing CPR. The result at the Emergency Room was no better. HE IS DEAD!

Just imagine, it could have been you. Even now, right this minute, while you reading this message.

Are you ready to die? Did you communicate with Allah today? Did you perform your daily prayers? Did you seek the pleasure of Allah?

Did you treat your parents and family with respect and love? Did you give any at all in charity (sadaqa) today? How many times did you remember Allah and recount His name?

The entire day you made time to go to work, check your e-mail, read the news, chat with friends, watch TV, play football etc. But did you even once say "Astagfirullah"? Did you ask Allah to forgive the sins that you've committed today? NO! Not once.

Did you say "Alhamdulillah" other than in your daily prayers? NO! Not once. Would you like to know why? Because you were too caught up with yourself and your daily activities.

What do you have with you, that you will take in your grave? Not a thing. Nothing that you did today. Nothing.

A few words that you could have uttered were the only things that you could have took with you. A few words that would've taken a few seconds of concentration out of the 24 hours.

A few pounds in charity instead of cold drinks, packet of crisps and chocolate bars could have saved your soul. But insisted to continue with your careless attitude. Thank Allah(swt) it wasn't your turn to go, because you're sure wasn't ready.

Now you close your eyes and say Alhamdulillah. Now you look back and say Astagfirullah. Now you have a different attitude. Now, you want to prepare for your turn.

Did you perform your prayers today? Did you give in charity and love? Did you ask for forgiveness yet? Do you care? I'm asking because I don't want to see you DEAD, knowing you aren't ready for your turn.

Are you ready for your turn, because Angel of Death (Azraeel (AS)) will come for your soul and will not give you another chance to rectify your book of Good Deeds ?

May the Peace and Mercy of Allah be upon us all. Aameen.
