The Inescapable Fate

Allah ﷻ says in Surah Al-Imran Verse 185
.

كُلُّ نَفْسٍۢ ذَآئِقَةُ ٱلْمَوْتِ ۗ
.
Every soul shall style demise
.
Everything on this Dunya has a set time period and it’ll perish, all the pieces within the heavens and the earth, besides الحي the Ever-living. Allah will then recompense the creation for his or her deeds, whether or not minor or main, many or few, large or small.
.
Surely, Allah is not going to deal unjustly with anybody, even the burden of an atom, and for this reason He ﷻ mentioned,
.
وَإِنَّمَا تُوَفَّوْنَ أُجُورَكُمْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ ۖ
.
And solely on the Day of Resurrection shall you be paid your wages in full
.
Even the Animals can have justice meted out between them, whichever one oppressed one other will capable of achieve recompense, after which they’ll be turned to mud.
And when the Kafir sees this, he’ll want to be mud too!
Allah ﷻ mentions in Surah Naba what he’ll say:
.
يٰلَيتَنِي كُنتُ تُرَابًا
.
I want I had been mud.
[78:40]
_
Coming again to our ayah in Surah Al-Imran
.
فَمَن زُحْزِحَ عَنِ النَّارِ وَأُدْخِلَ الْجَنَّةَ فَقَدْ فَازَ
.
And whoever is moved away from the Fire and admitted to Paradise, he certainly is profitable
.
The Prophet ﷺ mentioned “A place in Paradise as small as that which is occupied by a whip is better than the world and whatever is on its surface”
[Sahih Al-Bukhari 2892]
_
This is why we’ve got the Du’a
.
رَبَّنَآ ءَاتِنَا فِى ٱلدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةًۭ وَفِى ٱلْءَاخِرَةِ حَسَنَةًۭ وَقِنَا عَذَابَ ٱلنَّارِ
.
Oh Allah grant us goodness within the Dunya and the goodness in Akhirah, and save us from the fireplace of Hell.
[2:201]
_
Then Allah ﷻ ends the ayah
.
وَمَا ٱلْحَيَوٰةُ ٱلدُّنْيَآ إِلَّا مَتَٰعُ ٱلْغُرُورِ
.
And what’s the worldly life besides enjoyment of deception.
[3:185]
.
Allah ﷻ has made clear for us that Mankind needs and chases success in Dunya, however the true success, الفوز الحقيقي is within the Akhirah,
_
As Allah ﷻ says in Surah An’am
.
وَمَا ٱلْحَيَوٰةُ ٱلدُّنْيَآ إِلَّا لَعِبٌۭ وَلَهْوٌۭ ۖ
.
And the lifetime of this world is nothing however play and amusement.
.
وَلَلدَّارُ الاٌّخِرَةُ خَيْرٌ لِّلَّذِينَ يَتَّقُونَ
.
But the abode of the righteous within the hereafter is much better.
.
Then Allah ﷻ ends the Ayah with an incredible factor,
.
أَفَلاَ تَعْقِلُونَ
.
Will you not then motive
[6:32]
_.
Let us ask ourselves,
What have we actually been chasing?
Have we made our targets in Dunya go above that which awaits us in Akhirah?
_
Don’t take this Dunya for a house just like the Kuffar do, make use of your blessings properly
_
May Allah ﷻ grant us goodness within the Dunya and the goodness in Akhirah, and save us from the fireplace of Hell.
آمِيْن يَارَبَّ الْعَالَمِينْ
