As Salaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmutallahi Wa Baraakaatahu,

It’s your Sunnah Infographics Family here!

We hope you are well and in the best of health and emaan…

Today we will be talking about the inevitable.

Yes… 

The moment we depart from this world.

It’s something that the majority of mankind don't like to talk about or even think about.

But it’s the only thing that is guaranteed in this life.

And it can take place at any time..

So today we will touch on this important point, as a reminder for us all insha Allah.

Ayat Al Qur’an - Surah Al- Ankaboot  (The Spider) - (29: 57-58)

كُلُّ نَفْسٍ ذَآئِقَةُ ٱلْمَوْتِ ثُمَّ إِلَيْنَا تُرْجَعُونَ
وَٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ وَعَمِلُوا۟ ٱلصَّٰلِحَٰتِ لَنُبَوِّئَنَّهُم مِّنَ ٱلْجَنَّةِ غُرَفًا تَجْرِى مِن تَحْتِهَا ٱلْأَنْهَٰرُ خَٰلِدِينَ فِيهَا نِعْمَ أَجْرُ ٱلْعَٰمِلِينَ

Every soul shall taste death. Then unto Us you shall be returned.

And those who believe (in the Oneness of Allah Islamic Monotheism) and do righteous good deeds, to them We shall surely give lofty dwellings in Paradise, underneath which rivers flow, to live therein forever. Excellent is the reward of the workers.

1 Hadith

Anas ibn Malik reported: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ, said, “Three things follow a deceased person. Two of them return and one remains. His family, his wealth, and his deeds follow him. His family and wealth return, but his deeds remain.”

عن أنس بن مالك قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَتْبَعُ الْمَيِّتَ ثَلَاثَةٌ فَيَرْجِعُ اثْنَانِ وَيَبْقَى وَاحِدٌ يَتْبَعُهُ أَهْلُهُ وَمَالُهُ وَعَمَلُهُ فَيَرْجِعُ أَهْلُهُ وَمَالُهُ وَيَبْقَى عَمَلُهُ

Reflection Point

Sometimes in life, we tend to get distracted.

Yes, seeking our sustenance, enjoying our families, building homes and communities are very important, but it should not take us away from the true reality of why we are here.

These things will turn back after a person has been buried and you will not be able to take them with you.

I'll give you an example.

In the time of the ancient pharaohs, they would bury themselves in tombs surrounded by gold and jewellery, as they believed that they would take their wealth with them.

Yet, it will not aid them in the slightest; and the wealth that remains, you will find it in todays museums or in the hands of someone else.

The reality of our existence is very fleeting, in that one day we can be walking, smiling, laughing and the next day we can be 6 feet deep under the earth. 

The only thing that we will have with us, are our deeds. 

So we should ask ourselves…

Do we worship Allah sincerely? 

Do we work righteous deeds in accordance with the Sunnah of our Prophet ﷺ?

Do we give charity and benefit others?

Let's ponder over these questions, and see where we can make improvements in our day to day life, in order to be from those who have a good end.

May Allah make us from them.

Aameen

Here at Sunnah Infographics we have designed a comprehensive, yet simple infographic on the three things that follow us to our grave, and the one thing that remains.

Our righteous actions.

With the assistance of Allah first and foremost and then our beloved online community, we ask you to share this important reminder far and wide across your digital communities, as you never know whose heart you may soften and touch.

Our weekly beneficial infographics are becoming even more widely shared, week by week.

Subscribers from places such as Guam, an island in the middle of The Pacific Ocean to Suva in Fiji to the edges of the Baltic Sea.

Not only is this a chance to be a part of something that you love, but most importantly the reward you would receive from Allah after you pass away. Sharing beneficial snippets of knowledge that helped somebody you never met, to remember Allah, from a land far away that you have never visited.

Remember...

"Whoever guides someone to goodness will have a reward like one who did it."
