in the last verse of Surah Muhammad, Allah has reminded us as follows:

"Behold! You are those invited to spend of your wealth in the Way of Allah: But among you are some who are miserly (and stingy). But, those who are stingy are (misery) at the expense of your souls. But Allah is free of all wants, and it is you who are needy. If you turn back (from the Path), He will replace for you another people; Then, they would not be like you!"                           (47: 38)

The line (in bold) is something that we should be afraid of..I pray to Allah, so that we are not among the one who will be replaced by others..believe me, there is nothing worst other than living without the blessing of Allah..but, how to know whether we are blessed or not? here are some guidelines:

  • do we hate sins? if yes, we are safe, inshaAllah
  • do we hate those who are doing good deeds? if no, alhamdulillah, we are in good shape!
  • do we like to be among the good one? if yes, it's probably that we are included in the mentioned group
  • which one is our priority? present life of hereafter? i guess, the latter is the better choice
  • and many more...
this is what we call "self-reflection!" we need to check ourselves in a more frequent basis..remember, regardless of how far we have been deviated, there is always a chance to return to the right path! if we were to choose other path (other than Allah's path), we are indeed the one who are lost! as being mentioned in the above phrase, "Allah is free of all wants, and it is you (us) who are needy!" i sincerely admit that it's kinda hard  for me to ameliorate myself..the challenges are mounting..but, it's better doing something rather than none! it's ok to change a bit by bit! but, it should be consistent! ;)
