Ibnul Qayyim (RA) said,
“A girl died of a plague and her father saw her in his dream. He said, ‘my daughter, tell me about the hereafter. So she said, ‘We’ve approached a serious matter. We used to know but we didn’t act. I swear by Allah, to add one Tasbeehah (saying Subhan Allah) or a single Rak’ah to my book of deeds is more beloved to me than the whole world and everything in it.’

This girl said words of great importance. ‘We used to know but we didn’t act’, but many of us don’t understand what she means.

• We used to know, that if we say Subhan Allah wa bi Hamdihi 100 times our sins are forgiven even if they’re like the foam of the sea... (Al-Bukhari) (yet days and nights pass and we don’t say it).

• We used to know that whoever visits a sick person is followed by 70,000 angels seeking Allah’s forgiveness on his behalf... (al-Tirmidhi) (but we haven’t visited a sick person this week).

• We used to know that “Whoever builds a mosque for Allah, then Allah will build for him a house like it in Paradise.” (Al-Muslim) (yet we haven’t contributed to the building of a Masjid, even with 10 dinars).

• We used to know that whoever reads a single letter from the Quran has a good deed and every deed is multiplied by 10. (al-Tirmidhī) Yet we haven’t made a point to read it every day.

We used to bury the deceased and pray over them but haven’t prepared ourselves for a day like this one, as if we have a guarantee that it won’t happen to us.

Know that every breath we breathe is getting us closer to death yet we’re still busy with amusement and playing. It’s time we change the way we live and prepare properly for the day of accounting.

“On the Day a man will flee from his brother. And his mother and his father, and his mother and his father. And his wife and his children, For every man, that Day, will be a matter adequate for him.” (Al-Qur’an)

If the Esha Salaah was not offered with congregation, the Taraaweeh Salaah should also not be offered with congregation. This is because the Taraaweeh Salaah is subordinate to the Esha Salaah. However, if a group of people offer their Esha with congregation and thereafter offer their Taraaweeh with congregation, then it will be permissible for a person who has not offered his Esha with congregation to join this group in their Taraaweeh Salaah. This is so because he will be regarded as subordinate to these people whose congregation is valid.

An employee of the airport found a cell phone in one of the boarding areas. She switched it on, hoping a caller would identify the owner. It rang, and she answered it, but there was no response. When it rang a second time, another female employee answered, and the same thing happened.

Moments later, a supervisor came by and picked up the ringing phone. "This is Bob. May I help you?"

"Bob," the bewildered woman caller finally spoke. "Where is Bill, and who are those two women he's with?"
