Prayer Time

  |      |   

Disobedience: the disobedient may taste pleasure when it is committed, but he had forgotten that it is just a timing enjoyment and that it has a great fatality effect and sever suffering which he would suffer in this world and hereafter.

In this world, he shall have a painful chastisement, a great loss, a straitened chest and fractious subsistence. He would suffer from embitterment, depression, anxiety,  worry, tumult, rareness of conciliation, difficulty in his affairs, humiliation, and decadence of fate. He would suffer from darkness of heart, blackened face, blockage of the useful knowledge and provision, he suffers multiple suffering of what he enjoyed from the sin. As well as what he may inflict him in this world like shame and disgrace, heavenly pests and the preserved punishment on that sin like frontier punishment(Huduud). May Allah bless the speaker who says: “The enjoyment derived from the prohibited deeds will surely come to an end and the humiliation and embarrassment will remain.”

The evil effect will ever remain in its secrecy. There is no benevolence in any enjoyment that ends in hell fire.

That is the reason why our Lord warned, and admonished his servants by saying:

 فَلْيَحْذَرِ الَّذِينَ يُخَالِفُونَ عَنْ أَمْرِهِ أَن تُصِيبَهُمْ فِتْنَةٌ أَوْ يُصِيبَهُمْ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ

“Those who go against his order should beware of severe problem or there befall them a painful punishment” it means that those who disobeyed Allah and transgressed, those openly disobey Him should be aware of severe affliction, that's deviation of heart from the truth, going astray blindness after seeing the right path, because they do not appreciate blessing of the faith, they do not preserve its values as it is supposed to be, and do not worry if the blessing of faith is being deprived of them, this is because disobedience is the enemy of faith, the close friend of disbelief, the cause of His punishment. Allah says:

 أَوْ يُصِيبَهُمْ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ

“Or a painful punishment befall them. It means when they are in this world, they suffer from the heavenly” that's in this world with heavenly pests, or Had, or Taizir and in the hereafter with hell fire and it is a very bad residence .

Ibn Abbas said (May Allah be pleased with both of them) when he was comparing between good and bad deeds: Righteousness provides light in the face, light in the heart, strength in the body, increase of wealth, and admiration in the hearts of the creature. While bad deed provides darkness in the face, reduction of the wealth , and hatred in the hearts of the creature.

And in the hereafter the bad deeds was already recorded for the sinner and he will surely see its evil retribution and punishment in the day of resurrection.

 وْيومَ تَجِدُ كُلُّ نَفْسٍ مَّا عَمِلَتْ مِنْ خَيْرٍ مُّحْضَرًا وَمَا عَمِلَتْ مِن سُوءٍ تَوَدُّ لَوْ أَنَّ بَيْنَهَا وَبَيْنَهُ أَمَدًا بَعِيدًا

“The day the offenders will say out of their fear and regret” “On the day that every soul shall find present what it has done of good ad what it has done of evil, it shall wish that between it and that (evil) them were a long duration of time and Allah makes you to be cautious of (retribution from) Himself, and Allah is compassionate to the servants."

 يومَ يَبْعَثُهُمُ اللَّهُ جَمِيعًا فَيُنَبِّئُهُم بِمَا عَمِلُوا أَحْصَاهُ اللَّهُ وَنَسُوهُ وَاللَّهُ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ شَهِيدٌ


The day when Allah will raise them all together, He will inform them about what they have done. Allah has kept account of it, while they have forgotten, and Allah is witness to all things."

 " يَا وَيْلَتَنَا مَالِ هَذَا الْكِتَابِ لَا يُغَادِرُ صَغِيرَةً وَلَا كَبِيرَةً إِلَّا أَحْصَاهَا وَوَجَدُوا مَا عَمِلُوا حَاضِرًا وَلَا يَظْلِمُ رَبُّكَ أَحَدًا

“Ah woe to us: what a book is His! It does not omit a small one nor a great one but numbers item (all): and what they had done they shall find present (there and your Lord does not deal unjustly with anyone”.

They had seen what their hands did and what their bodies performed. Your Lord does not wrong anyone. This is the attitude of sinner towards his sins except that Allah, the exalted had wiped it with sincere repentance.

What a speaker says is true: The enjoyment of sin you enjoyed has come and gone but the sin remains.

Good deed will never get old, the sin committed will never be forgotten, the Lord, the Judge will never die. What a man enjoy with sins in this world, while ended up his life in the hell fire gain. Allah says about the disbelievers and their likenesses:

 أَفَرَأَيْتَ إِن مَّتَّعْنَاهُمْ سِنِينَ

" Tell me, should We let them enjoy for some years "

 That's throughout the length of their life.

 ثُمَّ جَاءَهُم مَّا كَانُوا يُوعَدُونَ

" then there comes to them what they have been promised." That's the death and what come thereafter such as: accountability and punishment.

 مَا أَغْنَى عَنْهُم مَّا كَانُوا يُمَتَّعُونَ"

" of what avail to them will be that which they were given to enjoy?"

 ذَرْهُمْ يَأْكُلُوا وَيَتَمَتَّعُوا وَيُلْهِهِمُ الْأَمَلُ فَسَوْفَ يَعْلَمُونَ

 Leave them to eat and enjoy and to be diverted by longings. Soon they will know.They will know their darkened return. Allah, the exalted says:


فَأَمَّا مَن طَغَى * وَآثَرَ الْحَيَاةَ الدُّنْيَا *  فَإِنَّ الْجَحِيمَ هِيَ الْمَأْوَى

as for him who has been rebellious * and preferred the life of this world * his refuge will indeed be hell.”

Imam Muslim narrated an hadith that the prophet (Peace be upon him) said: one amongst the denizens of Hell who had led a life of ease and plenty amongst the people of the world would be made to dip in Fire only once on the Day of Resurrection and then it would be said to him: O, son of Adam, did you find any comfort, did you happen to get any material blessing? He would say: By Allah, no, my Lord. And then that person from amongst the persons of the world be brought who had led the most miserable life (in the world) from amongst the inmates of Paradise. and he would be made to dip once in Paradise and it would be said to him. 0, son of Adam, did you face, any hardship? Or had any distress fallen to your lot? And he would say: By Allah, no,0 my Lord, never did I face any hardship or experience any distress.

Oh Muslims, think deeply, out of these two groups which group do you belong to? Then, know that the reward always comes in form of deeds. And know that the level of your deeds in this world will determine your position in the hereafter.

 وَلِكُلٍّ دَرَجَاتٌ مِّمَّا عَمِلُوا وَمَا رَبُّكَ بِغَافِلٍ عَمَّا يَعْمَلُونَ

" For everyone there are ranks in accordance with what they have done; and your Lord is not oblivious of what they do."

" مَّنْ عَمِلَ صَالِحًا فَلِنَفْسِهِ وَمَنْ أَسَاءَ فَعَلَيْهَا وَمَا رَبُّكَ بِظَلَّامٍ لِّلْعَبِيدِ

" Whoever acts righteously, it is for [the benefit of] his own soul, and whoever does evil, it is to its detriment, and your Lord is not tyrannical to His servants ".

Ramadan has come to an end, its days have gone, its fasting and prayer have completed, its books of record had been fold together with our good and bad deeds .

O' who is the successful one among us, so, we congratulate him. And who was deprived of success among us, so, we condole him. How many people among us were deprived of the blessings of Ramadan? And how many losers that had missed the forgiveness and the pleasure of Allah.

* Tomorrow the soul will be die with what it did. *The farmers will reap what they sowed.

* If they perform good deeds, they did it to themselves. * And if they did evil, what evil they did.
