Exclusive honorPosted: August 25, 2012
Some people believe that remembering the Hereafter frequently is a superficial form of reminder and unworthy for the educated [intellectuals], and yet Allah has made it an exclusive honor for the finest humans and they are the Prophets.
وَاذْكُرْ عِبَادَنَا إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَإِسْحَاقَ وَيَعْقُوبَ أُولِي الْأَيْدِيوَالْأَبْصَارِ * إِنَّا أَخْلَصْنَاهُمْ بِخَالِصَةٍ ذِكْرَى الدَّارِ
“And remember Our servants, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob – those of strength and [religious] vision. Indeed, We chose them for an exclusive quality: remembrance of the home [of the Hereafter]” [38:45-46]
[Shaikh Ibrahim Al-Sakran, a famous writer and columnist]
