Repentance

Repentance
If you were to die right now then what would become of your lover? your love one may arrange for your funeral and sooner or later your lover will also fill the next grave.

If only you knew that tomorrow you will die, you will spend the rest of your life without the pleasures of this world. 
You would never think about your wealthy, your friends, your jobs because you will pray and pray until your soul left your body



Or if you could see upon your death, you would never again eat a single bite out of a craving appetite.

And you would never again drink an extra sip of water for the pleasure of unquenchable and insatiable thirst.

Instead you will pray and pray for forgiveness of your sins till your soul left your body.

Hence, you will remain outdoor in perpetuity, bewildered and awaiting the unexpected, and you will never again seek comfort in a shelter or seek a shade. 

You will wander aimlessly and climb the hilltops of every mountain, you will look up towards the heavens and beseech your Lord for mercy.

And you will beat on your chest and cry endlessly, and you will wish that you were a little vegetable – a plant which is protected to grow, and then plucked to be eaten by a hungry person passing along.

If you really believe on Allah, you will not desire to live even longer in this world when the hereafter is better for you.  

Read the recitation of Al Qur’anulkarim, we find this world & the next world described in the following verses :
"Yes you prefer the life of this world, but the next world is better & more lasting." 87:16-17
"You desire the attractions of this world, but Allah desires the next world for you." 8:67
"And they are happy with the life of this world, but the life of this world is small comfort compared to the next world." 13:26

Then why are we sacrificing the hereafter for this world?
In regards to humankind behavior toward life and death, , Ali Ra said: "The thing I fear for you the most is following desires and having hopes for this worldly life. Following desires blocks one from the truth, & having world hopes makes one forget the Hereafter.

Imam Bukhari recorded in his book Volume 8, no 521 :  This worldly life is ending but the Hereafter is approaching & each of them has its children. 

So be children of the hereafter, not children of this world, for today we have the opportunity to do good deeds whereas tomorrow maybe too late.

The Prophet pbuh (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, "When carried to his grave, a dead person is followed by three, two of which return (after his burial) & one remains with him: his relative, his property, & his deeds follow him; relatives & his property go back while his deeds remain with him."

Moreover, Muhammad al Ghazali said:"Were people to just pause & think for a moment, they would realize that the Hereafter is the future that every sane person should prepare for by doing good deeds; that is to make this worldly life like a paved path or passage towards it. 

He should turn all of his efforts in this life to become like seeds of which he expects none of its fruits in this life, but waits for its reward from Allah in the Hereafter

Abu' l-Abbas as-Sa'idi (realted to Hasan ibn majah kitab as-zuhud 2/1373 said : "A man came to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and said, 'Oh Messenger of Allah! Guide me to such an action, that when I do it, Allah will love me and the people will love me?'

He said: "Do Not have love for this world and Allah will love you & do not be attracted to what people have and then the people will love you''.

So my dear friends,  just what we have done in our daily life........if you really believe on Allah, you would not  desire this world forever when the hereafter is better for you!

Ultimate life at hereafter is the most beautiful and everlasting life, among with angels sing a love song, dancing following the rhythm , full of happiness........ and everlasting fragrant of wild beautiful flower 

Indeed, There is the place where my lovely wife waiting for me to come...... 

I knew my dear lovely wife, you have been waiting for me at the gate of heaven, just wait for me...... I will be there
