1. You believe in the existance of Allah Ta'ala, but you do not fulfil his commands.

2. You say you love the Holy Prophet Mohammed (Sallallahu 'alahi wasallam), but you do not follow his sunnah (ie, his example).

3. You Read The Qur'an but you do not put it into practice.

4. You enjoy all the benefits from Allah Ta'ala, but you are not grateful to him.

5. You acknowledge Shaytan as your enemy, but you do not go against him.

6. You want to enter paradise, but you do not work for it.

7. You do not want to be thrown into hell-fire, but you do not try to get away (ie, do good deeds).

8. You believe that every living-thing will face death, but you do not prepare for it.

9. You gossip and find faults in others, but you forgot your own faults and mistakes.

10. You bury the dead, but you do not take a lesson from it.


These are the words of Ibrahim ibn Adham concerning the verse:

"And your Lord says, 'Call on Me, I will answer your prayer...' " (s.40:60)

The people had asked him: "We make du'a and we are not answered"

So the great Scholar gave them that answer.


"Have you ever tried to picture living forever, and ever, and ever? I'm sure you have, and it's impossible to think about.. It just shows us that we're trained to know that our life will come to an end..that's what I find so super scary.We know it deep down, but it's so hard to think about the grave, when we're surrounded by all these wordly distractions. It takes something dramatic to get us thinking.It's mind boggling to think that EVERY PERSON EVER CREATED is going to be standing there on the Day of Judgment. From Abraham Lincoln to any old cashier you see at the store, and everyone else before and after. Allah (SWT) is going to judge everybody fairly, and people will get their due punishment or reward.."
