May Allah (SWT) grant us and all the Marhoomeen Forgiveness and Jannatul Firdaus (Aameen)



Surah Al-Hadeed 57: - (The Iron)

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Most-Merciful

…"On the Day when you will see the believing men and the believing women, their light proceeding in front of them and to their right hands, (it will be said to them,) "Good news for you today! Gardens beneath which rivers flow, to live therein for ever! That is the great achievement," [12]

COMMENTARY: The Believers will be awarded Light on the Day of Resurrection - 'The day' refers to the 'Day of Resurrection'. The fact of 'light running before them' will take place just prior to people's passing over the bridge of Sirat. The details are given in a Tradition reported by Sayyidna Abu Umamah Bahili RA. It recounts that Sayyidna Abu Umamah Bahili RA attended a funeral in Damascus. When it was over, he reminded people about death, the grave, the Resurrection and the Hereafter.

"Then you will be transferred from the graves to the plane of gathering where there will be different stages and spots to stand or wait. Then there will come a stage when some faces will brighten up and others will be darkened by the Divine command. Then there will come a stage when people - believers and non-believers - all will assemble on the Plane of Gathering. An intense darkness will prevail and nobody will be able to see anything. Thereafter light will be distributed..."

By Firoza Hanslow

I wonder why people feel the need to tell a lie??
They hurt you, betray you and act like they are right!!
I wonder why no one has the courage to stand up and fight?
We need to take a stand and make them see...
Their lies and deceit leaves us in awe and makes us want to flee!!
I wonder why, in this day and age when life is so precious and short
No one even give you a second thought...

I wonder why there is so much sadness and pain??
And very little sunshine and rain...
I wonder why people pretend to care??
Then they promise to always be there...
When you need them they are always out of reach!!
When will they learn to practice what they preach??

I wonder why people are so filled up with rage??
They are acting like animals in a cage.
Swearing, shouting and screaming at each other??
Please help us Our Father...

What happened to Love, Care and Humanity??
All we see now is Hate, Pain and Abandonment...
I wonder why, in this world filled with a vast population??
Are there so complications...

What is next when all is out of context??
When you look at people all you see are eyes staring blankly as if you are invisible…
I wonder why we give in to the sadness, abuse, lies, betrayal and pain??
When we can have joy, harmony, happiness, sunshine and rain!!

I wonder why...
