Do Not Let The World Deceive You

The world and its splendours have deceived many, but those who are true seekers in the way of Allah, are always protected by the Mercy of Allah and the blessing of Nabi Kareem (Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam). We need to always keep our Imaan safe and with protecting our Imaan it is incumbent upon as to act righteously. The world is a test to every believer. If we are successful here, we will be successful in the hereafter. We should be cautious not to be deceived by the worldly concept of ‘Success’. Many today regard success as being wealthy and powerful, whereas in reality true success is to die with Imaan. If a man dies with Imaan, he is truly successful, for he has entered the Barzakh with his Imaan, and will be blessed with the Bounties of Allah.

Amongst the servants of Allah, there were those who were permitted to speak after their deaths, and such people have cautioned us about the hereafter. As Believers, it is important that we prepare for our last moment on this world, a world which will one day also perish with everything in it. We should prepare well for the day when we leave this world, as that day is the decider for a person. It is reported from Hazrat Abu Muhammad bin Naj’jar, wherein he says, ‘I gave Ghusl to a deceased, and whilst giving the Ghusl, he suddenly opened his eyes and held my hand. He then said, ‘O Abu Muhammad! Prepare well for this day.’

Each of us needs to ask ourselves few important questions; How prepared are we for that day, when we will be judged by our true success?  Have we allowed the world to deceive us? Do I feel successful today? Remember! All the wonders and splendours of this world are temporary! They shall all come to an end for each of us, the moment we close our eyes, and are overtaken by ‘Death’. We have been warned about not allowing the world to deceive us. The following narration is undoubtedly an open and clear reminder in this regard:

Hazrat Umar bin Khattab (Radi Allahu anhu) reported that Rasoolullah (Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam) said, When a deceased is placed on the (funeral) bier and you walk three steps away, then with the exception of the humans and Jin, whatsoever wishes may hear him. The deceased says, O my brothers! O those who carry my body! Do not let the world deceive you like it deceived me, and do not let the time play with you, like it did with me. Whatever I had, I have left behind for my heirs, and on the day of Qiyaamat, my debtors will dispute with me and ask for accountability, and (now) you are returning, leaving me (here alone)

Seek refuge in the Mercy of Allah and His Rasool (Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam) from the deception of the Duniya (World)!
