A chance

Just a thought before iftar.. Without parents,children survive.
(orphanages?) Parents without children survive.(old
age homes?) Us,humans without Allah lose hope,one
who loses hope,loses the will to
survive. You can survive without food and
water-there are countless examples-
people of Somalia,Sudan and other
poor countries. Without faith and hope in Allah,you are
dead ! You become like the barren land
without rain.. Don’t just exist..LIVE ! A scholar once said: WITHOUT ALLAH,Life is NOT Worth
Living..
WITH ALLAH,Life is Worth Dying for.. Allah says:
“But if any of you have done wrong
and have thereafter substituted good
to take the place of evil, truly, I am Oft-
Forgiving, Most Merciful.” Surah An-Naml : Ayah 11 The prophet (s) said in a Hadith: “Every
son of Adam sins, and the best of those
who sin are those who repent.”
Narrated by al-Tirmidhi All your life,you may have committed
sins-lying,breaking hearts,drug
addiction,astrology,drinking,listening
to music,dancing in pubs,hanging out
with girlfriends/boyfriends.. But you are still alive and you have a
chance !!
You have the chance to change your
ways.. Allahs says:
Say: “O Ibadee (My slaves) who have
transgressed against themselves (by
committing evil deeds and sins)!
Despair not of the Mercy of Allah, verily
Allah forgives all sins. Truly, He is Oft- Forgiving, Most Merciful.
Quran (Surah Az-Zumar, Verse 53) “Allah accepts the repentance of a man
so long as he is not at the point of
death” (Tirmidhi) Change your ways before you die while
driving in a drunken state.. Repent before you die while out on a
date with your gf/bf and the pub
catches fire.. Repent before it’s too late. Allah has given you the chance..the
opportunity -GRAB IT ! Take account of yourself before Allah
takes you to account..
“Allah is more pleased with the
repentance of His slave than anyone of
you is pleased with finding his camel
which he had lost in the desert.”(Sahih Bukhari) The question we ought to ask
ourselves is that if we know we are
engaged in certain sinful behavior,
why wouldn’t we then stop and ask
Allah’s forgiveness?
As Allah says in the Quran:
“Will they not repent to Allah and ask
His Forgiveness? For Allah is Oft
Forgiving, Most Merciful.”
Quran (Surah Al-Maidah, Verse 74) May Allah forgive our sins.Aameen
