What is called Khatei’ah Jariah or continuous sin?
We all know the meaning of sadaqa Jariah or continuous reward and how to achieve it, but do you know about what is called Khatei’ah Jariah or continuous sin!!!
I or you may be doing this terrible thing without thinking about the gravity of it.
My dear sister do not upload/share your pictures or pictures of other women on your social media, even if they are celebrities and their pictures are everywhere, make sure you do not become one of the publicist. Believe me you do not need a share of their work.
You and I do not know when we will die, most of the social media programs have passwords on them, you may die today and that picture of yourself with full makeup or with tight clothes will still be online until the Day of Judgment. The picture of that woman you uploaded with revealing clothes and full makeup is still being watched by all sorts of men online while you are lying in your grave!!!
Instead of you receiving hasanaat (reward) for a good deed, you are receiving more sins every single day!!
Can you picture the situation!!? When you are so desperate in that grave for any extra good deed you can get, your grave gets darker and tighter every day for an act you thought was so simple and harmless.
My dear brother you will also be accountable for those sexy pictures you upload on your profile to show your friends and have a laugh.
Sheikh: Mohammad Ratib Al Nabulsi said:
A person may choose to sing until they die and their songs will continue to be broadcasted on media until the Day of Judgment. Another person will choose the Quran, then they die and their tilawah will continue to be broadcasted on media until the Day of Judgment.
Allah Ta’alah says:
﴿ كُلاًّ نُّمِدُّ هَؤُلاء وَهَؤُلاء مِنْ عَطَاء رَبِّكَ وَمَا كَانَ عَطَاء رَبِّكَ محظوراً ﴾)
What can be translated as: ( To each [category] We extend – to these and to those – from the gift of your Lord. And never has the gift of your Lord been restricted) 17:20
There is a person who built a masjid (mosque) and another person who built a night club. A person who goes online to spread the words of Allah and help their fellow humans and another one goes to post pictures and get attention. A human being is given a choice, so choose what you want and do what you want but remember everything has its account.
The capacity of our houses increases with the space of the land!!
But the capacity of out graves increases with the space of our good deeds!!
That is why Allah says what can be translated as: (And take provisions, but indeed, the best provision is fear of Allah) 2:197
So I leave you my dear sister and brother with a question:
Why will you want to sin while you are alive and continue to sin even after our death!!?
Ponder and think, is it really worth it!!?
It’s not too late, go and delete all those pictures, repent and make sure your profile will do you proud on the Day of Judgment. And next time you intend to share something, think first……
