Is it Jannah that you want, O slave of Ar Rahman
Wallahi, is it Jannah that you want, O slave of Ar Rahman?
Why do you do what you do? Is it because you want Jannah? Or is it because you want something else? Fame, appreciation or just so you please someone you love?
O slave of Ar Rahman! Renew your intention!
So many things have been across the globe, deaths, massacres, injustice to our fellow Muslims, do we feel such pain? Do we feel the sorrow and the struggle they are going through when it is said that this Ummah is like but one body, that when a part of it feels pain the whole body feels pain?
When we see and read news of our fellow Muslims in pain and vain, do we actually make du’a for them or is it just a normal newsfeed we see on our dashboards?
It is because you believe that you will only feel the pain when you experience it? O my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, our Ummah is in pain yet we do not even give an ample of our time to make du’a for this raised nation that Allah Azza Wa Jall talked about in the Qur’an! Astagfirullah.
Hundreds of hate crimes have been done to our fellow Muslims, massacres here and there, and no it is not that you can not do anything, you are given the gift of du’a [to some it may look as if it’s nothing but know that this the most powerful weapon and gift you were given by Allah Azza Wa Jall], so make du’a for the safety of our brothers and sisters in Islam.
Remember the story of that merchant who was hijacked on the desert yet when he made du’a that Allah Azza Wa Jall saves him, the angels raced to Allah Azza Wa Jall so that they can rescue that merchant, so they can perform that task!
Imagine, O Ummah of Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassalaam, if everyone of us made du’a for something we unite for, do you not think that the angels do not race too to answer the prayers of ours? Yes, it may not look as if it’s there already but this is to attest our faith in Him.
Remember the story of Al Quds, when Salahuddin freed the Muslims from the barbaric enemies of Islam, when our fellow Muslims were torture in the most inhumane way, they did not lose faith, they were patient and their patient never tired off Allahu’akbar! They waited 90 years until the 91st year the Help of Allah Azza Wa Jall finally came through Salahuddin Al Ayyub.
But know that these people in these stories are but instruments for us to remember that after this life there is a better life, and that is the life why we were created for.
We are for Jannah, so make yourself worthy for Jannah!
Indeed, in Jannah, there is love without separation, there is happiness without limits and there is pleasure beyond our imagination, and of course there is a bond that will never be broken! And there you will be reunited with those whom you love!
So ask yourself, will all that you have been doing in your life, do you think these things will earn you Jannah?
If you have stumbled then rise up and start a new, if you are heartbroken then know that your heart belongs only to Allah Azza Wa Jall where there will be no heartaches, if you have failed then know that you will never attain success without Allah Azza Wa Jall in your life.
The Sahabah Radiyallahu Anhum made their entire lives as a preparation for their akhirah. Have you started doing the same?
And we pray that we become more enlighten with our deen and that Allah Azza Wa Jall helps us on attaining the knowledge that will make us yearn for Jannah more in our day to day lives. Amin.
