Time And Tide Waits For No Man.

Allaah تعالى says: 

{It will be, on the Day they see it (the Last Hour), as though they had not remained [in the world] except for an afternoon or a morning thereof.} [Surah al-Nazi`aat (79): 46]

Time is a great teacher and mentor of man. In the bosom of time are contained tremendous accounts of nations’ rise and fall, which can be of great significance and value for people living now on earth. This planet has seen hundreds of nations in the past, rising slowly towards eminence, consolidating their power for some time and then degenerating and falling into oblivion. How many nations took shape, reached their climax and then vanished without a trace! Thousands built big empires by means of massive military campaigns and conquests. But at last, all drowned in the ocean of time.

Dozens of civilizations saw the light of day and, after touching the summit of success and fame, decayed and were annihilated. Billions and Billions of human beings were born into this world and after having passed through the stages of adolescence, youth, and old age, returned to dust.

Sincere Repentance

بـسـم الله والحـمـد لله والـصلاة والـسـلام عــلى رسـول الله، وبـعـد

Repentance is required for all sins, great or small, apparent or hidden. Repentance is for the benefit of man, since Allaah سبحانه و تعالى Himself is free of need.

The word “Taubah” literally means “turning back”. Since, sin puts distance between the soul and Allaah سبحانه و تعالى, during repentance the servant turns back to Allaah سبحانه و تعالى, seeking refuge in His forgiveness. And when a soul repents and returns to Him, Allaah سبحانه و تعالى turns back to His servant in acceptance and forgiveness. Thus Allaah سبحانه و تعالى has named Himself “at-Tawwaab”, the constant Acceptor of Repentance and sometimes translated as “the Oft-Returning”.

To Inquire Until One Understands...

بـسـم الله والحـمـد لله والـصلاة والـسـلام عــلى رسـول الله، وبـعـد

Kitaab al-`Ilm.

Chapter: The one who hears a thing and inquires until it is understood

Narrated Ibn Abu Mulaika: Whenever 'Aishah (the wife of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم) heard anything which she did not understand, she used to ask again till she understood it completely. `Aishah said: "Once the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said, "Whoever will be called to account (about his deeds on the Day of Resurrection) will surely be punished." I said, "Doesn't Allaah say: "He surely will receive an easy reckoning." [Surah al-Inshiqaaq (84):8] The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم replied, "This means only the presentation of the accounts but whoever will be argued about his account, will certainly be ruined."
