"Everyone shall taste death. And only on the Day of Resurrection shall you be paid your wages in full. And whoever is removed away from the fire and admitted to Paradise, he indeed is successful. The life of this world is only the enjoyment of deception (a deceiving thing)." (Qur'an Al-Imran 3:185)
The slave loves to meet Allah and has an ardent desire to look at Him Subhannahu wa Ta’ala. It can not be imaginedthat the heart can love Allah except that it desires to meet Him and to see Him.
An ardent desire to meet Allah is a highand elevated station that emerges from a strong love of Allah Azza wa Jalla.
Abu Ad Darda’a (Radiyallahu anhu) used to say:
“I love death, desiring the meeting with my Lord. I love poverty, humbling myself to my Lord. And I love sickness in order that my sins might be expiated.”
How many of us desire to meet Allah? Are we ready to meet him? Have you packed your bags?
When we pack our bags to go visit far away living friends, we remember to pack our clothes, shoes, bathroom neccesities and other little things ....
Since we could understand right from wrong, we have started packing our bags and will finish when our souls leave us.
Have you packed your salah everyday?
Have you packed your fasting?
Have you packed your reading and memorizing the quran?
Have you packed those little things we do and get ajar for?
Our bags are called life. We have to pack everyday because we don't know when Allah wil call us back too him, so we have to be ready too go all the time, any where.
And on the way up to Allah, you don't get any U-turns so that you could go back and get the things you forgot to pack. So start packing if you already haven't, and don't forget, there's no such thing as too many bags when were packing for our trip to Allah.
