Like one report said.
Some body asked somebody, what is Duniya? Duniya is the inheritance of the ignorant and the valley of the sinner, market of the greedy, house of lunatic, jail of the mu’min, and garbage dump for whom running after it. Duniya is the garden for the people who love Allah [SWT], garden of the worker of Allah [swt]. Ali ibn Abi Taaalib said: Duniya is a place of whom who does not believe in Akhirah; it is a place with the truth for who believes in the true meaning Allah [swt]. It is a place you can save yourself if you comprehend where you are. This earth is a house of those who want to increase their bounty to Allah [swt]. All revelation came on earth. It is the place of the mosques, the prophets and the messengers. And the merchant of the one who love Allah [swt] they gain the rehma of Allah [swt] and they be patient to go meet Allah [swt] (What it mean is duniya has two sides, the evil side of the accumulation and the material aspect andit has revelation, messenger and prophet, place of worship and spread goodness and we can choose which one we are going to get).
Why you hate Duniya and very soon it will leave you and very soon you will be leaving her? You get happy with the decoration of the Duniya and you become miserable with the agony of Duniya but you forget both the status is a trial and a reminder. Oh the one who blames Duniya, Duniya did not deceive you, Duniya did not disgrace you. It is you the one you did not listen and did not hear the advice of the owner of Duniya and very soon you will be underneath this duniya. How many times you were sick and you got the cure. Don’t keep blaming Duniya. Tomorrow, no medicine, no blaming can benefit you. No crying can benefit you once you leave.
Also he used to say Allah [swt] has servants, they got to know what duniya is. They divorce it and clear the fitna. They look and they comprehend. They are not staying forever and they do not make it resident. They consider it the sea with the wave. And they make their piety, emaan, their good deed the boat to reach the safety.
Do you want to know if you are a person for Duniya or Akhirah? Look how much time you spend for Duniya and how much time you spend for Akhirah? How much time and money you spend for Duniya and how much you spend for Akhirah? How much you are thinking and desiring Duniya? And how much you think and desire Akhirah.
121 verses in Quran talk about rizq and all these verses are about only one topic, Allah [swt] is the provider. Provision is written for you, you cannot escape your provision. Allah [swt] does not want you to think and worry about the provision. Allah [swt] wants you to think and worry about the journey of emaan. Rasoolullah [saws] said: if Allah [swt] loves a servant, he save him from Duniya, from accumulating Duniya, the way the mother saves her child from getting hurt.
Rasoolullah [saws] said: If Duniya equals in the eye of Allah [swt] of one wing of a mosquito, he will never allow a disbeliever to have a sip of water. Rasoolullah [saws] said: Allah [swt] gives Duniya to whom he loves and whom he does not love and hate. But he will never give the deen of Allah [swt] except to whom he loves. Rasoolullah [saws] said: Whoever loves his Duniya he will harm his hereafter, whoever loves his hereafter, he will harm his Duniya.
Chap Al Baqarah v 25
And give glad tidings (O Muhammad) unto those who believe and do good works; that theirs are Gardens underneath which rivers flow; as often as they are regaled with food of the fruit thereof, they say: this is what was given us aforetime; and it is given to them in resemblance. There for them are pure companions; there for ever they abide. (25)
Chap Al E Imran v 4, 14, 15
Aforetime, for a guidance to mankind; and hath revealed the Criterion of right and wrong. Lo! those who disbelieve the revelations of Allah, theirs will be a heavy doom. Allah is Mighty, Able to Requite (the wrong). (4) Beautified for mankind is love of the joys (that come) from women and offspring; and stored-up heaps of gold and silver, and horses branded (with their mark), and cattle and land. That is comfort of the life of the world. Allah! With Him is a more excellent abode. (14) Say: Shall I inform you of something better than that? For those who keep from evil, with their Lord, are Gardens underneath which rivers flow wherein they will abide, and pure companions, and contentment from Allah. Allah is Seer of His bondmen, (15)
Rasoolullah [saws] said: “Me and Duniya are like the example of a man who is travelling – he is walking/traveling in a hot day. He saw a tree with a shade, he lied down under the shade for sometime and left.” Meaning: the shade will never stay and the shade of the tree is not your destination. Rasoolullah [saws] said. Duniya is a residence of whom who have no residence, the money of whom who has no money and the one who accumulate it (duniya) has no brain Also He [saws] used to say: the person who says my money my money – and what you have from your money… only three What you eat and you know where it is going What you wear and you know where it is going And your charity and you know where it is going And after that any amount of money you accumulate after that you leave it for those behind you.
Time is short today we are living, tomorrow we are dead. It is up to us…
What is our goal in life?
What we like to achieve?
What we like to take with us when we die?
What is the preparation of the journey after death?
You will not believe it, after I gained the knowledge about Duniya and Islam; I discovered Duniya and Life is all about only one thing the preparation for after death. Because anything you do before death is nothing to do with you, and anything you do for after death you take it with you. Ask your self now: What I am living for? Where we go from here? The lucky one among us the one Allah [swt] opens his heart, his vision, his faculty; and he realizes we are leaving and none of us know when we are leaving.
Abdur Rahman ibn awf one of the beloved companion of Rasoolullah [saws]. Rasoolullah [saws] said to him: Ya Abdur Rahman you will enter Jannah after everybody by 500 yrs and everybody go to Jannah standing and you will go crawling with your face. This is Abdur Rahman ibn Awf RA the one Allah [swt] was pleased with him”
Imagine where am I?
Rasoolullah saws said: “The first people enter Jannah after me are the poor people of my ummah.” 1 day in the Day of Judgment is equal to 50000 yrs of our reckoning Rasoolullah saws said: Rich people of the ummah will enter Jannah after the poor people by 500 years. Are we crazy? Are we in a state of mind? The message today is very simple; the message has been forgotten…what is it? We are going to die. We are hardly living and thinking that we are going to die. We bury the dead we visit the people who are dead, we visit the people in the hospital, we see all the people around us but we do not get it! This is the Journey of Emaan.
This is the whole message of Allah [swt]. This is the garden of the pleasure of Allah [swt] for those who seek the pleasure of Allah [swt]. By this way Duniya is the Garden of Allah [swt] for those who seek pleasure of Allah [swt]. If you use Duniya to please Allah [swt] Duniya becomes your garden the most beneficent. Now you are the wise one.
May Allah [swt] save us from Duniya!
May Allah [swt] empty our heart from loving Duniya!
May Allah [swt] fill our heart with Akhirah!
May Allah [swt] fill our heart with the reality of loving Akhirah!
May Allah [swt] fill our heart with loving Allah [swt]!
May Allah [swt] make us the lucky one who seeks the pleasure of Allah [swt]!
May Allah [swt] make us the lucky one who seeks the rahma of Allah [swt]!
May Allah [swt] make us the one who leaves this Duniya and He [swt] is pleased with him!
Ameen Ameen Ameen Ya Rabbil Alameen!
