  • The missed roles my unfaithful heart weeps for...

    Life is ruthless towards those who don't make the most of their time, energy and health when it comes to playing a certain role. It has been 17 years since my heart missed saying the word "Dada" (Grandfather). Evey time I reflect on the 7 years that I spent with him, I feel like cursing myself for preferring to waste my time on toys and hence missing so many opportunities of serving him to make him feel proud of me. Even after the role of "grandson" was snatched from me, Allah (swt) has been very kind to still not close the door of serving him, by allowing me to send him as many gifts as I can in the form of 'sadaqa', Quran recitation, Zikr, prayers for him...etc. The fact that I didn't see him in my dream for a long time made me realize that I have become careless towards someone who always took care of me during every second that I spent with him. The immense need of good deeds of beloved ones in ones grave is evident from numerous hadiths. How embarrassing would it be, if suddenly I encounter death, and the first question dada asks me when I face him is, "Did you not realize that your few seconds of prayers each day for me could have contributed in relieving my soul from the hurting worry and pain in the grave ?"

    One by one nature would take away from us the right to say "mom", "dad", "brother", "sister", "wife", "son" "daughter"......It might also be possible that the angel of death takes away all these rights at once. It is up to me to decide if I want to be the one who later repents for the missed opportunities due to business in my own enjoyments (Allah Forbid) or to be the one who is happy that he sacrificed his own pleasures in trying to perform these roles in the best possible way, to ones level BEST! May Allah (swt) bless us all with the wisdom and strength to be able to dedicate more time and energy towards the roles that are assigned to us for a very short time, before its too late...Of course, the GREATEST role that easily covers all these roles is to become a TRUE Slave of Allah (swt) and a TRUE follower of the Prophet (saw).

    Good post. Do you have your own blog? If not you should try posting these threads there. I think you're blog would be good, inshaa'Allah.

      Wa-iyyakum brother for the kind words of encouragement. I tried but couldn't find a blog section in this forum. I once made my personal blog, would inshaAllah try to work on it. Thanks brother for the kind advice.

        That was very reflective.

          Jazak-Allah-Khair for the reminder. Many of us forget and drift, so thanks again for this.
