If not now, when?
Everyone has had some sort of trouble or difficulty in life. Trials can bring out the best or worst in you.
But for the sincere seekers, trials may be the turning point in your life.
Sickness, loss of loved ones, decrease in wealth, whatever the issue…it makes us question, why am I here in the first place?
There’s got to be more to life than making money, looking good, having a family, being famous…
Isn’t it time we rethought our priorities?
Ramadan just passed.
Some of us passed before Ramadan.
Alhamdulillah we have been blessed with the opportunity to change, before it’s too late.
Are we trying our best to pray the 5 daily Salah on time?
Are we making efforts to ensure we eat and earn Halal?
Are we observing Hijab internally and externally?
Are we restraining our desires keeping only to the permissible?
Are we guarding ourselves from what Allah doesn’t like, shunning all the major sins?
Are we trying our best to do what Allah loves, and fulfilling the obligations?
Are we trying to maintain TAQWA- GOD-CONCIOUSNESS?
وَمَا خَلَقْتُ الْجِنَّ وَالْإِنسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُونِ –
And I (Allah) created not the jinns and humans except they should worship Me (Alone).
This reminder is for us before anyone else. How does the above apply to me? Because none of us are perfect.
But we have a Most Merciful, Most Forgiving, Ever-Living Master- Allah, The One True God worthy of worship.
Alhamdulillah for the realisation.
It’s still not too late to change our ways.
But we must be sincere, and change for the better now.
Because if not now, when?
May Allah help us to serve Him alone, make us sincere and successful, and the people of paradise. Allah bestow blessings upon His last prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. Amin
