The day started with the normal activities. I was so upset today. Actually I had a number of issues in the office with my boss due to less sales in the previous couple of months. I am one of those who make a time table and follow it strictly to have a consistent life. I follow my time table in such a way that most of the times people get amazed.
While going back to my home after the tedious office work at exactly 1:30pm, a team of Dawah met me in my street and requested me to attend a lecture on “importance of Reading Holy Quran” in the nearby mosque at 4:30pm. The attitude of the people was so modest and Good that I promised to visit them at the supposed time.
They wasn’t time in my timetable to offer the Salah even but I went to the mosque at 4:15 to join them at Salah. After Salah one of them stood and started the lecture. Some of the content of the lecture is as follows.
“Assalam o Alaekum brothers, I hope you would be fine. Today our presence here is to spread the message of Islam and enlighten the minds of Muslim brothers with the real truth. As all of us know that He/She has to go one day and it is our strong belief that we will be asked for our actions then why we are sleeping.
The only reason is that Satin wants us to forget Allah Almighty. Allah (SWT) has given some permission to him till the judgment day because those are the true Muslims, who even in the presence of Satin Remember Allah and follow his religion. Everyone is liable to explain his/her actions in front of Almighty Allah on the judgment day. So following the teachings of Holy Quran is the only way to be successful in this life and the life hereafter.”
I was really feeling good to be there because I had realized the true meaning of Islam. I was thankful to my Lord that he showed me the right path. While returning to my home, I was crying on my past. All of the soar memories went through my eyes.
I was weeping due the ignorant attitude I had for last couple of years. I had never though about our existence but today I have came to know that for what reason we are on this planet and what does the creator of this universe want us to day.
I went upstairs and opened up the cupboard which had been closed since the death of my father and was never unlocked even for the dusting. There were number of Books related to Islam were there. Holy Quran was placed at the top. I took it and sat on the nearby chair. Opened up the first page and tried to recite the first Ayah
“Bismillah ir rahman ir Raheem”
“In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.”
At the same moment I decided that I would never ever miss Namaz and will Inshallah recite Holy Quran Consistently. Believe me, Our creator is so kind to us. He has given us a chance to prove ourselves. Those who show humbleness and consistently remember Him are the successful ones.
Right now, After 3 months, all of the issues have been eliminated as if they never existed. I have done pretty much sales this month and I have been promoted to the next level. I am really thankful for my Muslim brothers who rough me to the right path.
I request all of you to just sit and think that what the purpose of our creation is. Surely there is some, The creator wants us to follow His guidelines and those fail to do us are those who will not be able to explain their way of Life to Allah (SWT) on judgment day and will be sent to Hell for their waste living.
