What is the affect of making hereafter our goal in life?
Whoever makes the hereafter his goal or her goal, Allah will gather their affairs for them. Allah will put it all together. Everything will be in place. He will not be distracted by so many things, running here, trying to grab everything. It’ll be clear. The path will be clear. It will be settled. Our hearts, our minds will be settled. And he will place in their hearts richness. They will feel a sense of richness of heart, contentment. This is the ultimate richness. And the world will come to him conquered and submissive. When the world is ignored, it will come on its knees begging us. This is the promise of the Prophet (ﷺ). But of course the lure of the world is so great, in spite of that promise and in spite of our claimed belief in the Prophet (ﷺ) we will remain in that first category. Instead of being in the second category who make the hereafter their goal. For whom Allah will bring together all of their affairs and Allah will put richness in their hearts and the world will come to them. They will be saying no I don’t want. This is something worth reflecting on and striving for.< Back to Questions
