For the hours we did not spendPosted: November 28, 2012 | |
One of the Salaf said, “On the Day of Judgment, the Son of Adam will be shown the hours of his life, and he will be torn with regret for every hour he did not spend remembering Allah,” [Jaami’ al-‘Uloom wal Hikam, P. 135]
Allah says, “[For such is the state of the disbelievers], until, when death comes to one of them, he says, ‘My Lord, send me back That I might do righteousness in that which I left behind.‘ No! It is only a word he is saying; and behind them is a barrier until the Day they are resurrected” [23:99-100]
Even as I write these words and you read them, these very seconds will be played back to us on the Day of Judgement. What did we do after we’ve been shown the truth? After we received the warning? Let’s try to do our best, strive for goodness, repent, and turn to Allah. May Allah forgive us all for our shortcomings..
