  • The Great Betrayal

    A man is happily walking in the market place, doing preparations for his wedding day, while angels are surprised to see his excitement as his name has already been included among the 'dead' in this year's list handed over to them by Allah (swt). Our dear friends & relatives who used to laugh with us in happy times, but now in their graves, are astonished at our attitude that even their sudden deaths couldn't warn us to awake from this dream of betrayal. The body that was fed with delicious + healthy foods & beautified for hours in front of mirror has now decomposed & eaten by insects, leaving behind only the 'deeds'.

    Songs inject into our souls a sweet poison of unconsciousness (from our true reality), but the thunder bolt of screaming and mourning women (in front of a dead body) jolts it, awakening it from the illusion that we live in, but we prefer to return to our ignorant life that has little time for Quran and Hadith compared to films, fashion and music.

    As Hazrat Ali (k.w.) puts it. "People are sleeping, they would wake up at the time of death". One of the names of the day of judgement is "The day of Betrayal", when a large group of believing men would be shocked about the only opportunity of pleasing Allah (swt), this life, was snatched from them through betrayal in different forms. They were betrayed into believing that the life of their own desires (against the Prophet's ways) would earn them Jannah. But then, it would be too late for awakening and regreting...and forever, there won't be any opportunities for compensation...

    May Allah (swt) protect us from the betrayal of Shaitaan and nafs.

      Avoid excessive laughter and useless arguments as they harden the heart and lead to heedlessness.

          Wa-iyyak everyone for the kind words of encouragement.

                Not yet. Would inshaAllah start, by the grace and mercy of Allah (swt) and then share the link here. JazakAllah khair for encouragement. Meanwhile please do correct me if you find anything objectionable in my posts. Would really appreciate that.

                        the post is about worldly things (weddings included) distracting us from our purpose in life and our not realising this until it's too late. and because these things were a distraction instead of an enhancement, they will be a source of regret for us on the day of judgement. so it's not the wedding that's a problem, but our mindset around it.
