Akhirah over Dunya?

من كان يريد حرث الاخرة نزد له في حرته ومن كان يريد حرث الدنيا نؤته منها وما له في الاخرة من نصيب

Whoever desires the harvest of the Hereafter, We will give him more of that gain; and whoever desires the harvest of the world, We will give him of it, and in the Hereafter he has no portion. (42:20 Surah Ash Shura The Consultation)

Powerful words. It makes us think about our priorities in life. What are we packing for the Hereafter? What are we building in Jannah? Is it because we have no time… or is it that we are not making time?

Sometimes we become lost in our ways, in this ocean called Dunya, and forget to see that the beacon has always been there with a way to stop us drowning. We sometimes chose not to see this safety ad it often involves facing ourselves and changing what we have become so comfortable in.

‘Know that the life of this world is only play and amusement’ (Surah Al Hadid, The Iron)

May Allah swt keep Dunya in our hands but Akhirah in our hearts.

Juma Mubaraka
Have a blessed day and keep humanity in your duas

NB. These messages are foremost a reminder to myself, it’s just me thinking out loud.
