The reality of Duniyah

As we grow older so does our sense of perception of the true value of the dunya that we live in. We begin to comprehend that whether we wear a watch for 300 or 3000 it will still give you the same time and whether we purchase a wallet for 30 or 300 its contents won’t change, or whether we live in a 300 or 3000 square metre house your sense of loneliness and isolation won’t change. In the end you realize that happiness isn’t made possible through materialistic possessions. Whether you purchase a first class or economy class ticket, you will still reach your destination at the appointed hour. For this reason, do not encourage your children to become wealthy rather, teach them to become pious so that they realize the true value of matters before they pay the price of ignorance.

{Whoever works righteousness – whether male or female – while he or she is a true believer, verily to him we will give a good life (in this world with respect, contentment and lawful provision).} (16:97)

The swiftness of time is truly scary to behold. No sooner do you place your head on the pillow, than the light of Fajr illuminates the earth. Time passes and stops for no man. The happy one is the one who fills his scrolls with good deeds. O AbdAllah busy yourself with righteous actions, spread the greeting of salam to those you know and those you don’t. Preserve your prayers, greet your brother with a smiling face, constantly remember your creator with the words SubhanAllah, Alhamdulillah. Laa ilaaha illa Allah and Allahu Akbar.

Memorise a verse from the Quran or a hadeeth from the sayings of your prophet Salla Allahu Alaihi Wasallam. Fast on Mondays and Thursdays. Send peace and salutations upon the prophet. Worship Allah with sincerity, without seeking any recognition or fame for Indeed, although your financial situation may not be perfect but as long as you are worshipping Allah with sincerity you will always be rich and content.
