Assalamu Alaikum Warahamtullahi Wabrakatahu Dear Brothers & Sisters

Just
would like to share with all of you a story said by the imam yesterday
after taraweeh prayers. Sorry if it has been posted before over here


Years ago there lived a rich man, who was so rich that he had multiple properties in many different countries.

He
had a servant whom he always called by the name 'fool'. One day before
his overseas trip to US, he called his servant, "Fool come here!
Tommorow im heading to New York...". His servant asked,"Where will you
be staying over there master?". To which the man laughed and replied,
"Fool dont you know? I have built myself 2 houses and 3 hotels there".

Some
other time, when he had another overseas trip due he called his
servant, "Fool come here! Ill be leaving to Manchester tommorow".
His servant asked,"So where are you going to stay there master?".
Again the man laughed and replied, "Fool dont you know? I have prepared ahead and bought 3 mansions and 4 Pent houses there".

Years passed, the man grew sick and during his last hours he was on his death bed.
Weakly, he called his servant,"Fool come here!...I am very weak and i feel im heading towards my next life soon"
To which the servant jokingly asked "Where are u going to stay over there master?".

The
man swelled up in tears and said,"Oh fool, i worked so hard and spent
so much money building myself places to stay in many different parts of
this world. But i never did anything to build myself anything in the
hereafter. I called you fool all this while, but instead i have been
the foolish one...".


Brothers & sisters, yes this may
look like an imaginary story but afterall what is the meaning behind
this? We spent money and time building the our futures in this world,
which is of course important. But what have we done in prepare of our
next life? Have we prayed enough so that we have mansions in paradise?
Or have we done enough good deeds to at least earn a tree to lie against and to eat fruits from in paradise?


Insha’Allah this will make all of us reflect and work harder for the afterlife

Wassalaam
