In the name of Allah the Most Beneficent the Most Merciful,
وَهُوَ الَّذِي يُحْيِي وَيُمِيتُ وَلَهُ اخْتِلَافُ اللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ أَفَلَا تَعْقِلُونَ
“And it is He who gives life and causes death, and His is the alternation of the night and the day. Then will you not reason?”
Dear reader,Allah our Kind Lord causes life and death both in the physical and spiritual sense.Before you and I were nothing,we did not exist.Then Allah willed that we should exist and He sent us to this World.We sojourn in this world for a few seconds,weeks or years and then we die.After that Allah brings us back to life again.However, we are not the only species which Allah has created and given life.Every animal,insect,bacterium etc that is alive is alive because Allah gave it life.
Furthermore in the spiritual sense hearts can be dead or alive(sound).The heart of the one who knows his Lord,remembers Him,submits and obeys Him is alive.The heart of the one who denies His Lord,disobeys Him and forgets Him is dead.Allah can give life to dead hearts too.How many disbelievers embraced Islam since the time of Adam to the time of Muhammad peace be upon him?Countless.Any human being who does not worship his Lord is spiritually dead.However when he submits to Allah and follows His commands then that person is once more alive.SubhanaAllah(How perfect is Allah).Praise is due to Allah our Lord who Created Life and Death.
He is the One who set the alternation of day and night on its fixed patter.All these i.e the mechanism of the universe did not and cannot come by mere chance.There must be a Creator who is Perfect and created all this with purpose and not mere sport.
Just like the day follows the night so does the next life/hereafter follow this life.Allah the Exalted Most High Created all things in pairs,life-death,day-night and thus this world necessitates the existence of the hereafter.
Thus dear reader, with every passing day we are getting closer to death.Therefore may Allah have mercy on you take yourself to account before you are taken to account on the day of reckoning.As Hassan Al Basri said,”Oh son of man,by God … You are nothing but a number of days, whenever each day passes then part of you has gone.”
May Allah have mercy on us and cause us to die while He is pleased with us and enter us into Paradise where we will live forever in bliss by His permission.
and Allah knows best.
Asalaam aleykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.(May the peace and Mercy and Blessings of Allah be upon you.)
