Work for ALL

My Beloved Friends,

There is no nabi amongst us anymore. It has been more than 1400 years since his death. Allah swt has decreed that there will be no more messengers to come and remind humans and guide them to ALlah swt. So, does this mean that Allah swt is being cruel and unfair? Why? Why has ALlah swt not sent down to us anymore guidance? Look around us, humans have gone astrayed. We are at our lowest. In fact, it is now that we need the most help. We need guidance. Do not fear, it is not ALlah's intention to leave us without a lifeline.

Allah swt has given us, the umat of Nabi Muhammad saw, the privilige of continuing the work of Nubuwwah. .. Allah swt has given us, weaklings, the work of the messengers. So arise, Umat of Nabi Muhammad saw. This is THE test from ALlah swt. This is our battlefield, our prove to ALlah that with what ever that has been endowed to us, in our short stay in this temporary abode, we will use to propagate ALlah's Deen. It is actually a rahmat from Allah swt. It is therefore our utmost duty to remind and guide others to Allah swt. Nabi Muhammad saw has left us with this parting sermon during his final years ;

"O People! No Prophet or apostle will come after me and no new faith will be born. Reason well, therefore O People! and understand words that I convey to you. I leave behind me two things, the Quran and the Sunnah and if you follow these you will never go astray."
"All those who listen to me shall pass on my words to others and those to others again; and may the last ones understand my words better than those who listen to me directly."

So, we should come together and take this task. Those who are willing to put effort into the deen of Allah swt will be greatly rewarded. Those of leave this work to others will be greatly deprived. Take this chance, umat is in great suffering. Umat of Nabi Muhammad saw is not just us (Malays. Even the Chinese, Indians, Americans, Europeans, Afrikans. These are all umats of Nabi. Do not be tricked by Syaitan and get into turmoil with each other. Work of dakwah transgressed nations. There are no borders in Islam. Our work does not focus only in Malaysia. Who will bring deen to brothers & sisters in other parts of the world ? Allah swt has granted the people of Malaysi with so much rizk. It is unfair for us to keep it for ourselves. Use all that Allah swt has given to us to propogate deen. Bring those far from ALlah swt closer to Him and He will bestow onto you great rewards. Not only in this dunia but transcending into the akhirah. Remember, Allah has stated in Surah At-Taubah, Verse 111;

"Verily, Allah has purchased of the believers their lives and their properties; for the price that theirs shall be the Paradise. They fight in Allah's Cause, so they kill (others) and are killed.

May Allah accepts our sacrifices and chooses us for the work of His Deen. Amin

Keberkatan Waktu

Masya Allah,

How time flies. It seems that my last entry was in November. Alhamdulillah, a lot has happened since my last post. Hubby is back from khuruj. Insya ALlah, with his return, life should change for the better.

One thing for sure, with hubby at home, life sure is hectic. I've told him again & again that routine and calmness are rare nowadays. His answer..."I am better off not being at being on the path of Allah is the best for all". Life is complex...ever changing. Time is never enough for us. ALthough Allah has granted each one of us with 24 hours in a day...sometimes, we wonder why our time and energy always eludes us. Keberkatan Waktu...that it what we should aim for. Verily, if ALlah aids us, all our tasks seems to simplify and at times, when we slipped from ALlah's grace ( due to our own misdeeds ), nothing seems to go right. This is made clear to us...time and time again. Alhamdulillah, Allah has made us understand this. However, to know and to do is something else.... May ALlah grants us the strength to do what we know is right.
