Reality Bites!

Its in the reality that we are born as a Muslim but we deliberately choose not to lead a life as how a Muslim should according to the Qur'an and Sunnah. We recite, ponder and cry over the meanings of the Qur'an and thats all there it is. We can cry and follow a novel attentively, until we take it with us to the washroom! If only we are as that attentive with Qur'an and Hadiths (not saying we are encouraged to take these to the washroom though!).Its disheartening to see Muslims around us take these for granted...take Akhirah for granted. Qur'an were being picked, ready to be recited and as soon as our favourite show on television starts, we put the Qur'an aside. Astaghfirullahaladzim! That's how valuable Qur'an is in our life :'(

That's just Qur'an, how about the Sunnah? We, women questions about hijab (can we imagine about niqab?), questioning blindly of Allah's commandment, with the excuse 'I'm not ready' or 'Allah haven't granted me the Hidayah' (Hidayah needs to be asked by us, not waited for). We women, too, find such entertainment and enjoyment to discuss and backbite about others, with such filthy, obscene language being used to express our feelings and let them known to public just for attention sake. Of course, Shaytan clapped his hands harder everytime saying, "Good job! However I will leave you alone in the Akhirah though you have enjoin me in evil".

Then comes Seerah, how many of us would take that time to learn and follow the life of our Blessed Rasulullah sallallahu alaihi wasallam, the women in his time, and his Blessed Companions? How many of us know the details of their struggle? Which war he did not participated in? The blessed people who are already granted Jannah? Which Sahabah assisted in compiling the Qur'an? Why Qur'an were revealed in stages and not arranged according to its revelation? Instead, we keep track of which singers just released their latest albums, the new boutique in town to visit, who is the best team in EPL? Who won the golden boot last year? Astaghfirullahaladzim.

Allah Ta'ala has regard us, His favourite, because we are the Ummah of Rasulullah sallallahu alaihi wasallam, but what are we doing for our Akhirah? Do we live up to the Love and Mercy that Allah Ta'ala has given us???TIME is ALL that we have and time is ALL that we're wasting on.Indeed, we have been mentioned, discussed, and showed as an example (good or bad) in the Qur'an? Does that not make you tremble enough as yet???"I swear by the time, Most surely man is in loss, Except those who believe and do good, and enjoin on each other truth, and enjoin on each other patience."- Surah Al-'Asr (103:1-3)  
Now, ever wonder why our du'as are not being accepted? Allah knows best and I know nothing.
