Bismihi Ta’ala


*Most of the time of our lives are spent in quest of assets and possessions that others have. We are in a blind competition with our own kins-our own blood 🩸-, our school friends, our partners, our neighbours and acquaintances.**Well, just like the 6 old year son coming from a family gathering saw his cousin had a bicycle, the first dialogue when he enters home:Daddy i want a bicycle just like his!**Dekha Dekhi-I have seen him. So I want same.*
*These few words i am writing is to bring my attention and your attention away from such blindfolded competition before it is too late.*
*Allah Ta’ala says in the Noble Qur-aan:*
سورة الحديد (٥٧): ٢٠]اعْلَمُوا أنَّما الحَياةُ الدُّنْيا لَعِبٌ ولَهْوٌ وزِينَةٌ وتَفاخُرٌ بَيْنَكُمْ وتَكاثُرٌ فِي الأمْوالِ والأوْلادِ 
*_And know that worldly life is but a play, an amusement, and a show off of beauty, and a pride show off between yourselves, and a competition between yourselves to surpass each other in wealth and children.(57:20_)*
*It is this very worldly competition  that has deflect our attention from the preparation of the oncoming aakhirah life.*
ألْهاكُمُ التَّكاثُرُ (١) حَتّى زُرْتُمُ المَقابِرَ (٢)
*_Indeed you are distracted by the competition between yourselves to amass more wealth…until you reach your graves._*(Surah 102)
*So my dear beloved brothers and sisters, let’s put a brake to the rat race of blind folded competition of amassing and competing.*
*Rather moderately, look for halaal rozi and be satisfied with your gains and take out time for salaah, deen fikr n khidmat, tilawat, zikrullah and family quality time.*
*_Look back at today’s time spent. How much was for deen? How much was for aakhirah? And resolute to improve for tomorrow. Look back at your life. Resolute to make a change as from today_*
