Work For The Hereafter As If You Are Going to Die Tomorrow (Because it’s a fact that we can die anytime- Even today!)

Another email I would like to share with you. I got this from the same person as before, Ugandan Muslims. This person actually one of the Abu Meow Group’s members. ( I don’t know this person gender) all the email really attract me and be a good reminder for me ,I think. Perhap this person says some common or may be just simple things. But trust me, we alway forgot about it.

The servant, when he turns away from Allah and becomes preoccupied with sins (in this world), he loses opportunities to earn a good true life (in the hereafter). He will see the consequence of losing this opportunity on the Day when he will say:

“Oh, I wish I had sent ahead [some good deeds] for my life [i.e. true, everlasting life in the Hereafter]”. So on that Day none will punish as He (Allah) will punish. [Quran 89:24-25]

A person who is traveling the path towards success and believes in life after death must hasten and rush towards doing works for the hereafter. Whenever he is presented with an opportunity to do a task for the next world, he must hurry to carry it out without wasting any time. Take precedence and hurry to do good deeds before you are occupied by other than it. If a person spends his entire day performing good deeds, then he does not have any time left to carry out bad deeds.

We must hurry towards any deed that will ensure our success in the hereafter

So lets do good deeds now before Allah takes away our chance for repentance and an opportunity to do good deeds to earn ourselves a good life in the Hereafter
