Scale of justice
In the same way that when traveling we ensure that our baggage does not exceed the airline weight limitation because of the fear of being penalized, we should also ensure that we do not carry excess baggage into the Hereafter.
The correct weight is achieved through
– forgiving others,
– letting go of sin & other negative issues that we have held onto far too long,
– cleansing our hearts from jealousy, envy, hatred & evil thoughts,
– choosing the correct friends,
– assisting others,
– improving our character &
– abstaining from foul language & oppression.
It is important to do a weight check before arriving at the ultimate “scale of justice”.
