We think we hear enough reminders about death, but the reality is, what use is in that if it does not lead to a long-lasting effect on our behavior, thoughts and actions? Being conscious of death at all times is what will truly help us prepare for the Day of Judgement, as well as ensure a better performance for each of our deeds. Read this poem for a much-needed wake-up call!
It is natural of human beings to take things for granted or to misuse that which they have been blessed with. That should not become second nature though and we must take heed before it is too late. Beauty has been created for us to appreciate it, so let us get into the habit of doing just that!
The home must be a place of worship, a classroom, a place of taking care of the necessities of life, a place of close family relationships, a place for rest, a place for work, a place for drawing near to Allah Allah Subhanahu-wa-Taala even when no one else can see, a place of thinking, a place of upbringing steadfast and upright Muslim children. The home is the place we always return to in this world while the hereafter is the place we will certainly return to, after our death. Thus, it is a temporary resting place for us given as sustenance from AllahAllah Subhanahu-wa-Taala which we should use to prepare for the final resting place to come.
