One last time.

Our body is an amanah (trust).

Those ears you use to listen to music, something that Allah (SWT) has made impermissible- a deaf mu’min would kill to hear the recitation of the Qur’an just one more time.

These eyes that we use to look at impermissible things, a blind person would kill just to see the creation of Allah one more time.

This mouth we use to curse and backbite from, a speech impaired person would love nothing more than to mention words of praise of the All Mighty one last time.

These feet that we use to take us to places that Allah has forbidden for us to go, a person with amputated legs would give up everything he has just to walk to the Masjid one more time.

These hands we use to write destructive things with, someone without hands would love nothing more than to be able to lift his hands to make du’a to Allah (SWT) and hold the noble Qur’an in his hands just one more time.

All this food and drink we excessively fill our stomachs with, the poor and hungry will do anything just to have one bite.

The time that we so often waste- so many people in their graves would do anything to come back to the dunya for just ONE minute to prostrate to Allah (SWT).

Our body is an amanah, our time on this earth is limited. Let’s think about those less fortunate when we are doing things we’re not supposed to be doing. We will be asked about these things when we meet our Lord, are we prepared?

The Prophet (SAW) said: ”Take advantage of five matters before five other matters: your youth before you become old; your health, before you fall sick; your wealth, before you become poor; your free time before you become preoccupied, and your life, before your death.” (Narrated by Ibn Abbas in the Mustadrak of Hakim & Musnad Imam Ahmad. Sahih)
