We should keep our death in mind every time

Surah YUUNUS – 10 (JONAH)


In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful


45.  And on the Day when He shall gather them together, (when it will seem) as though they had tarried but an hour of the day, recognizing one another. Those will verily have perished who denied the meeting with Allah and were not guided. 45.  Wa  Yawma  yah-shuruhum  ka-‘allam  yal-basuuu  ‘illaa  saa-;atam-minan-nahaari  yata-‘aara-fuuna  bay-nahum.  Qad  khasi-ralla-ziina  kazzabuu  bi-liqaaa-‘Illaahi  wa  maa  kaanuu  muh-tadiin.        




It was commanded in the previous verse that Allah Almighty does not wrong the people in aught, but they wrong themselves. Apparent pomp and show of the world and its temporary pleasures delight him so much that he does never think “from where I have come and what covenant have I made with Allah Almighty?”


Allah Almighty commands: Sometimes, you should remember the Last Day also. At this time you consider it that it is a myth, but when the affliction will fall on you; then save looking from side to side in discomfiture; you will be able to do nothing. These nights of merriments, days of recreation and rejoicing, which you enjoyed during entire life; and did never remember even for any moment about your death, being entangled in your amusements, will not be seen by you on the Day f Resurrection; but like perplexed dreams. When you will be gathered in the Resurrection Field, then you will say sorrowfully: How soon the days of luxurious enjoyment have been over? How we have fallen under terrible things? It seems that we stayed in the world for a trice only.


One more misfortune would be that all the fun and neglect shall perish. Worldly relatives and companions will know one another but none will be able to help any other. Every individual will look out for him/herself only and own interests. Friends and supporters, liar gods, rulers and subordinates will give a point blank refusal. There will be none for asking about your condition in that world. All people will be with one another but everyone will be alone.


However, such people who established their connection with Allah Almighty and His Messenger (grace, blessings and peace be upon Him) being disinterested from the world and the people of the world; and formed a friendship with Them by breaking their relationship from the entire people, they will be free from such fright. Those who had believed in the world that they would have to be present before Allah Almighty and admitted their meeting with Him, they will be away from all confusions. But who denied the meeting with Allah Almighty, slighted the Revelations of Holy Qur’aan and Sayings of the last Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, blessings and peace be upon Him), will repent on that Day and see that they are cursory losers. The path, which they chose in the world, was totally wrong. But understanding it in the Hereafter will not be useful for them. They should understand these matters today.
