Asalamualaykum dear readers,
This is a reminder to our selves first and foremost.
“I longed for marriage”
.. and I got married
But life with out children is deserting
Thus I longed to be blessed with children
… and I got children
But within no time my small apartment made me uncomfortable..
I therefore longed for bigger house with garden..
well, I got it, though with much efforts
Yes, I possessed a mansion, but my children have grown up by then
Hence, I longed for them got married…
I now have them married,
yet official responsibilities give me fatigue
Now I resorted to retirement, so to get some rest…
.. Now I retired, become single just as I was after graduation..
.. After graduation I notice, I approached life, but now, I bid life farewell..
Still I do have ambitions..
.. I therefore longed for Quranic memorization..
.. but my memory betrayed me..
.. I longed to frequent fasting…
… yet my health condition won’t allow me do it..
.. I longed for night devotion “Qiyamul layl”…
.. but my feet could no longer carry me well…
VERILY The Prophet SAW made it categorical that ” Make profit out of five things before five things over took you.
Your youthfulness before the old age
Your health before illness
Your affluence before austerity
Your free time before busy moment
Your life before your death
NB: If your daily routine is empty of the following activities, be quick and insert them NOW… or NEVER :-
*2 Raka’at of Dhuha
*Daily Quranic recitation routine
*Alms giving /supporting the needy
*Spreading good word/nasiha/salam
May Allah SWT continue to help us against the satanic whispers and evils of our own souls.Salam alaykum.
