ريض يالطارش Raith yattarish an Imarati nasheed

Mishary Al-Afasy ريض يالطارش Raith yattarish an Imarati nasheed

(with Eng Sub.)

Wait, O weary courier, pen a salute on a letter
Even if the darkness followed you,
you have to accomplish your mission

And if they (The ones we sent the letter to) enquired after us,
thank them and tell them:
they are the way you remember
Your defendant is absent,
and the verdict is impermissible in absence

A person must deliberate, and judge fairly
Don't mistake us to be the source of this injustice,
it's justice we give and take

Do us a favor (O courier)
and carry to them our salute and greetings
Tell them the restless sorrowful
is spending the nights raving about them

Thoughts and suspicions are playing us
A sorrow we hide in the heart
fearing some people will disgrace us
Tell that the One we thank the most (Allah)
knows all that is public or secret

He (Allah) knows what you are
but He (Allah) tests his servant with ordeals
Whoever wants his final destination to be the heaven,
he wouldn't accept a poor spirit

For some, dreams are all what they do,
and for others they make their dreams come true

And the one who says: Lord, I have faith!,
will never bare despair and suspicion

This one becomes stronger with Qur'an and Sunnah,
and when The Caller Calls (Allah) he responds

O courier when you meet them, tell them:
we still remember our promise and we will fulfill it

From my mail box..

Several years ago an Imaam moved to London. He often took the bus from his home to the downtown area. Some weeks after he arrived, he had the occasion to ride the same bus. When he sat down, he discovered that the driver had accidentally given him twenty pence too much change.

As he considered what to do, he thought to himself, you better give the twenty pence back. It would be wrong to keep it.

Then he thought, oh forget it, it's only twenty pence. Who would worry about this little amount? Anyway, the bus company already gets too much fare; they will never miss it. Accept it as a gift from Almighty Allah and keep quite.

When his stop came, the Imaam paused momentarily at the door, and then he handed the twenty pence back to the driver and said "Here, you gave me too much change."

The driver with a smile replied "Aren't you the new Imaam in this area? I have been thinking lately about going to worship at your mosque. I just wanted to see what you would do if I gave you too much change."

When the Imaam stepped off the bus, his knees became weak and soft. He had to grab the nearest light pole and held for support, and looked up to the heavens and cried,

"Oh Allah, I almost sold Islam for twenty pence!"

We may never see the impact our actions have on people.

You are the author

“You are the author of your own book. So make sure its worth reading on the day of judgement.” (Anonymous quote)

[Soorah Al-Israa, v:13-14]

“And We have fastened every man’s deeds to his neck, and on the Day of Resurrection, We shall bring out for him a book which he will find wide open. (It will be said to him): “Read your book. You yourself are sufficient as a reckoner against you this Day”. [soorah Al-Israa, v:13-14]

Dan tiap-tiap seorang manusia Kami kalongkan bahagian nasibnya di lehernya dan pada hari kiamat kelak Kami akan keluarkan kepadanya kitab (suratan amalnya) yang akan didapatinya terbuka (untuk di tatapnya). (13) (Lalu Kami perintahkan kepadanya): Bacalah Kitab (suratan amalmu), cukuplah engkau sendiri pada hari ini menjadi penghitung terhadap dirimu (tentang segala yang telah engkau lakukan). (14)

"On the day when their tongues, their hands, and their feet will bear witness against them as to their actions". surat An-Nur, (verse 24).

Also Allah (S.W.T.) says what could be translated as, "And they will say to their skin:" Why did you bear witness against us? "They will say "Allah has caused us to speak, as He cause all things to speak." ( Surat Al-Fussillat, Verse 21)

The Messenger described the questioning in a speech reported by Imam Muslim that the prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.) said:

"Allah (S.W.T.) will meet a person and ask him: "O person, Wasn't I generous with you, and made you with a spouse, and made the horses and camels at your disposal? The servant will reply "yes"! Allah (S.W.T.) will then ask “Did you think that you will meet Me?” He will reply: "No!" Allah (S.W.T.) will say: "I will forget you like you forgot Me"!

Then Allah (S.W.T.) will meet another person and his reply will be the same as the first person.

Then Allah (S.W.T.) will meet a third person and will ask similar questions, and the person's reply will be: "O Lord I believed in you, in your books, and in your messengers. I prayed, I fasted, and I gave charity. And he will praise Allah as much as he can.

Allah (S.W.T.) will say: "Hold on to your words, Now We will bring the witnesses. The person will ask himself “Who will testify against me?”

Then that persons mouth will be sealed, and his thighs, flesh and bones will be asked to speak. They will speak about his bad deeds. He will know that he has no excuse.

That is the hypocrite Allah (S.W.T.) will be furious with!”

We will be asked in the Day of Judgement about five things.

The prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.) said:

“The son of Adam will not pass away from Allah until he is asked about five things: how he lived his life, and how he utilized his youth, with what means did he earn his wealth, how did he spend his wealth, and what did he do with his knowledge.”

{Good hadith reported by Imam At-Tirmithi}

Best companions.

The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم (peace be upon him) was reportedly asked:

“Which of our companions are best?”

The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم replied:

“One whose appearance reminds you of God, and whose speech increases you in knowledge, and whose actions remind you of the hereafter.”
