Reality of Life

                                                           The Truth of the Life of this World

 

Once a man saw in his dream, that a Lion was chasing him! The man ran to a Tree, climbed on to it and sat on a branch. He looked down and saw that the Lion was still there waiting for him.

The man then looked to his side where the branch he was sitting on was attached to the Tree and saw that two Rats were circling around and eating the branch. One Rat was black and the other one was white. The branch would fall on the ground very soon.

The man then looked below again with fear and discovered that a big black Snake had come and settled directly under him. The Snake opened its mouth right under the man so that he will fall into it. The man then looked up to see if there was anything that he could hold on to. He saw another branch with a Honeycomb. Drops of honey were falling from it.

The man wanted to taste one of the drops. So, he put his tongue out and tasted one of the fallen drops of Honey. The Honey was amazing in taste. So, he wanted to taste another drop. As he did, he got lost into the sweetness of the Honey. Meanwhile, he forgot about the two Rats eating his branch away, the Lion on the ground and the Snake that is sitting right under him. After a while, he woke up from his sleep.

To get the meaning behind this dream, the man went to a pious scholar of Islam. The scholar said: The Lion you saw is your Death. It always chases you and goes wherever you go. The two Rats, one black and one white, are the night and the day. Black one is the night and the white one is the day. They circle around, coming one after another, to eat your time as they take you closer to Death.

The big black Snake with a dark mouth is your Grave. It's there, just waiting for you to fall into it. The Honeycomb is this world and the sweet Honey is the luxuries of this world. We like to taste a drop of the luxuries of this world but it's very sweet. Then we taste another drop and yet another. Meanwhile, we get lost into it and we forget about our time, we forget about our death and we forget about our graves.

Imam Ali (pbuh) says:

“You are the game that death hunts. If you stand still it will seize (catch) you. If you ran (flee) away it will overtake you.”

 

“What is the life of this world but play and amusement? But best is the home in the hereafter, for those who are righteous. Will ye not then understand?” (Qur'an 6:32)

 

Prepare for Death. It can strike anytime at anyplace

Holy Qur'an Says:

“Verily the knowledge of the Hour is with Allah (alone). It is He Who sends down rain, and He Who knows what is in the wombs. Nor does anyone know what it is that he will earn on the morrow: Nor does anyone know in what land he is to die. Verily with Allah is full knowledge and He is acquainted (with all things).” (Qur'an 31:34)

Once the angel of death (Izraeel) (pbuh) appeared in the form of a human being in the court of Prophet Solomon (Sulayman) (pbuh) and gazed continuously at a person present there for some time. That person asked Prophet Solomon (pbuh), “Who was that person?” He (pbuh) told him that, that was the angel of death. He remarked: “The angel of death had gazed at me in such a manner as if he had determined to take my life.”

Prophet Solomon (pbuh) asked him, “What do you want?” He requested him to take him to India. He commanded the cloud to pick him up and drop him in India. Consequently the cloud carried him to India. The angel of death came to Prophet Solomon (pbuh) next day. Prophet Solomon (pbuh) asked him, “Why did you fix your gaze at that person?” Angel of death replied: “I wondered that the Almighty God had commanded me to take the life of this person in India whereas he was sitting here in your presence.”

Hence that person reached India, his prescribe place of death, from the presence of Prophet Solomon (pbuh), so that the angel of death can perform his job as ordered by Almighty God.

After some time, Prophet Solomon (pbuh), with the staff in his hand, was viewing the kingdom around him, when he saw a young man approaching him. He was surprised and asked him, “Who are you and who gave you permission to enter the palace?”

The visitor replied: “I have come in with the permission of Almighty God, the owner of the universe. I am the angel of death and Almighty God has sent me to take your life away.”

Prophet Solomon said: “Then allow me to go home to prepare for death and rest on my bed.” The Angel said: “No.

“While Prophet Solomon stood leaning on his staff, his soul left him. His body remained standing for such a long time that the people and the Jinn believed him to have become a spirit or a magician. They carried on with the work entrusted to them by Prophet Solomon, until Almighty God caused the Ants to eat away the staff he was leaning on and his body fell to the ground.“While Prophet Solomon stood leaning on his staff, his soul left him.

Just close your eyes and Imagine

Just close your eyes and imagine,

You have just one more day to live;

One more day to show Allah,

To you “Heaven” should he give?

To say goodbye to your family,

And all your closest friends;

To ask for forgiveness,

And try to make amends;

Just close your eyes and imagine,

Did you miss a prayer or two?

Did you please Allah, and do the things,

He asks every Muslim to do?

Just close your eyes and imagine,

Tomorrow you will be gone;

No more second chances,

To smell the mist of dawn;

Just close your eyes and imagine,

The angels are going to come,

To take your soul and ask,

In your life “what have you done?”

Just close your eyes and imagine,

The words you want to say;

Will not come out you may realize,

For all your deeds you'll pay;

You want to speak out, to cry out,

In Allah I believe;

But, silence beckons you,

No more can you deceive;

Just close your eyes and imagine,

Finally,

Your silence breaks away;

You tell the angels you believe in Allah,

And for him, you did pray;

You say as tears are pouring down,

Please, Allah, forgive me,

For the sins that I committed,

Have mercy is my plea!

Just close your eyes and imagine,

That the smell of musk surrounds you,

From your head down to your feet;

You realize Allah forgave you,

Hell fire you did defeat;

But we all know as Muslims,

When it's time for you to die;

You'll not be given a second chance,

To say a last goodbye;

So live each day as If it's your last,

And never forget to pray;

So when the angels come to ask,

You'll know the words to say.

Remember, you can try, but you cannot bury the truth!!!

“It is Allah Who gives you life, then gives you death; then He will gather you together for the Day of Judgment about which there is no doubt”: But most men do not understand. (Qur'an 45:26)

 

“Happy is the man who always kept the afterlife in his view, who remembers the Day of Reckoning through his deeds, who led a contented life and who was happy with the lot that Allah hath destined for him.” Imam Ali (pbuh)

The Prophet Muhammad   taught that three things continue to benefit a [believing] person even after death - charity which he had given (which continues to benefit others), beneficial knowledge which he had left behind (i.e. authored or taught), and supplication on his behalf by a righteous child (Narrated by Saheeh Muslim).

 

Thus, there are very convincing reasons to believe in life after death:

1)  All the Prophets of God have called their people to believe in it.

2)  Whenever a human society is built on the basis of this belief, it has been the most ideal and peaceful society, free of social and moral evils.

3)  History bears witness that whenever this belief is rejected collectively by a group of people in spite of the repeated warning of the Prophet, the group as a whole has been punished by God even in this world.

4)  Moral, aesthetic and rational faculties of man endorse the possibility of the life after death.

5)  God’s attributes of Justice and Mercy have no meaning if there is no life after death.

 

 

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said: 'The believer's shade on the day of resurrection will be his charity.'
