37 Points To Implement in Your Life..

 

Innal-Hamdalillah was-Salaatu was-Salaamu 'Alaa Rasoolillah

As-Salaamu 'Alaikum wa-raHmatullahi wa-barakaatuh

I pray you are all in the best of health and Imaan. You cant get away from the subject title, its across the World like wildfire, put the TV on it its headline news, surf the net its the 1st thing you see and the next few weeks are going to be dominated by the world mourning this Singer, Michael Jackson.

So, the question to ask yourself now, Who is Next ? Me or You ? What is our direction in life and are we truly focused for the hereafter and the entrance of the grave? Look at this man , he had everything, from cars to mansions and fame. Whats left ? Nothing. He wont be taking his bank balance, his cars or his mansion with him.

We really need to be focused on what we are doing in this world. It has now become so competitive that we have become more and more materialistic, family values and respect no longer exist and we cant forgive each other. Why? Think about it.

Blood brothers ands sisters are no longer in talking terms because the Shaitaan has overcome our minds due to jealousy, greed and ignorance. Its not worth ityou are not going to take anything with you except your good deeds, your prayers, your fasting and your intentions. Purify your heart now.

Lead a simple life. Dont plan far too much ahead. Dont end up working all your life so hard that you forget to give to the poor and needy and you have become isolated from your family due to financial ambitions. Who knows if you will even make it to 50? Allah swt knows best.

Michael Jacksons death should now bring us up to a Wake Up call. Go to Jumah Namaz and ask your creator for forgiveness and make intention for Hajj and to help the poor and needy. Do something much more positive in life that will save you from the torment of the grave. Read your daily Prayers, Read the beautiful words of the Quran and do something for your hereafter. Go to your brothers and sisters, make up now and do it for the sake of Allah swt and for your hereafter. Forgive and forget.
