Surah Al-Waqiah 56: - (The Imminent Event)

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

"(So, in case he [the dying person] is from among those blessed with nearness..." 56:88)

COMMENTARY: In the foregoing verses, it was made clear that one day the present world will come to an end. It was also testified that at the time of death the near and dear ones, friends and relatives, and doctors all stand helplessly around the dying person. Likewise, resurrection, reckoning, and reward and punishment, after account of deeds, are all a reality and certainty of the highest degree. At the commencement of the Surah, it was mentioned that there will be three categories of the people in regard to their reward or punishment.

The gist of this subject is again summarized here. If the dying person is among the Foremost believers, he will experience comfort, fragrance of happiness and a Garden of bliss. If he is not from the Foremost, but from the People of the Right hand, i.e. from the general body of believers, he will also experience the bounties and pleasures of Paradise. But if he is one of the People of the Left hand, the deniers and the deviant ones, then he will be in the blazing fire of Hell where he will be served with boiling water to drink.

Evil thoughts follow us everywhere, trying their best to kill us from the inside out,
Suspicions, negative doubts, arrogance, and false pride, all adding significant clout.

Always judging others intentions based on their actions leads to our lives becoming a spiraling mess,
Constantly trying to find faults and mistakes in others, the focusing our self-growth less and less.

Undermining others capabilities socially affects us like sharp, pointed knives,
Stabbing and scarring our abilities to makr friends and influence lives.

Rejecting a beautiful lesson just because of it's source is a major sign of haughtiness,
Extract the positives that can be learnt from one and all, no matter how much that may be arduous.

For the journey to contentment and reformation is meant to be a long and winding road,
And degradation of others slows us down greatly with it's crushing load.

So never consider yourself, or anyone else as superior or inferior, for who are we to decide,
The reputation and honour of a person can change just as quickly and significantly as an ocean's tide.

(Abdullah Panjwani)

I was hanging out with a friend when we saw a woman with a nose-ring attached to an earring by a chain. My friend said, 'Wouldn't the chain rip out every time she turned her head?' I had to explain that a person's nose and ear remain the same distance apart no matter which way the head is turned...
