Take action quickly before 7 things..
أيها الأخوة المؤمنون, مع الحديث النبوي الشريف، فعَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ
بَادِرُوا بِالْأَعْمَالِ سَبْعًا: هَلْ تَنْتَظِرُونَ إِلَّا فَقْرًا مُنْسِيًا, أَوْ غِنًى مُطْغِيًا, أَوْ مَرَضًا مُفْسِدًا, أَوْ هَرَمًا مُفَنِّدًا, أَوْ مَوْتًا مُجْهِزًا, أَوْ الدَّجَّالَ؛ فَشَرُّ غَائِبٍ يُنْتَظَرُ, أَوْ السَّاعَةَ؛ فَالسَّاعَةُ أَدْهَى وَأَمَرُّ؟
أخرجه الترمذي في سننه
هذا الحديث ورد في باب المبادرة إلى الخيرات، وفيه حثٌ على الإقبال على الله بالجد من غير تردد.
ومعنى كلمة: (بادروا), أي سابقوا، وربنا عزَّ وجل أشار إلى هذا المعنى في القرآن الكريم فقال:
وَسَارِعُوا إِلَى مَغْفِرَةٍ مِنْ رَبِّكُمْ وَجَنَّةٍ عَرْضُهَا السَّمَوَاتُ وَالْأَرْضُ
“Take action quickly before seven things happen; will you wait until you become poverty which makes you neglect, or rich, or arrogant poverty comes, or the sickness that ruins life, or the old that weaken the strength, or the dying death, or the arrival of the antichrist, the worst creatures await, or the coming of the Day of Judgment, very terrible and terrible “
1 – Practicing before poverty wrapped up
Poverty often makes people forget about the hereafter, forgets God, forgets the real purpose of his life and forgets good deeds for his eternal future, because a person who is bound by poverty is always busy with his quest for food and drink to continue his life, looking for a place to live for shade him from the rain and the sting of the sun, looking for the cloth to cover his body.
Even because of poverty without strong faith and for the sake of rice, one can steal, confiscate another person’s property as it had been during the caliphate of Umar bin Khatab, someone had stolen because of the poor, because a poor woman of faith dare to sell her honor and because of poverty many people who fall into disbelief, he is willing to sell his religion because of the difficult demands of his life while he is promised a good life in another religion, because that is the Messenger of Allah said:
Poverty is almost plunging people into disbelief
and he always seek refuge in Allah from disbelief and poverty. Poverty is very difficult for life, but God has determined there are rich people and there are poor people as a test for him, whether the rich is grateful for his wealth and the poor patient with poverty. God said:
Verily thy Lord give the provision unto whom He wills and straitened it; Indeed, He is All-Knowing, Seer of His servants. (17:30)
Immediately before poverty is wrapped in human life that is the order of the Messenger of Allah, because when people have enough wealth to meet the needs of their lives, many means and opportunities that can be used for deeds, the possessed property can be spent on the right path by giving charity, helping people who do not have, pay zakat, perform pilgrimage and others.
With a decent living condition; Having a food and drink, clothing, shelter and a decent transportation facility, one is able to concentrate more on deeds without being busy with the mind looking for a taste of rice except for people who have never felt enough in their lives to keep searching and searching.
2 – Practice before rich bragging
Rich is the test of God, whether the rich is grateful for the treasures he has given, understanding the treasure in his hand is only the trust of God, The real estate owner, realizing what he has is a gift from God, He takes power from him in a moment. God said:
Whatever God bestows upon men in mercy, no one can hold it; and whatever Allah seized, there is no one able to release him afterwards. And He is the Mighty, the Wise. (Surah 35: 2)
Does the rich understand how he spends his wealth, because on the Day of Judgment someone will be asked about four things, one of which is his treasure from where he earns it and how he spends it. Property is a test, if it is in the hands of a good person then it is indeed a pleasure for him. Rasulullah saw said:
“Best of good property owned by good people”.
But many people who are arrogant because of wealth, he feels that his wealth is the result of his efforts, the fruit of his hard work, the benefits of his knowledge as Karun says: “This is the result of my science”, because one does not need God, had prayed to Him for the gift of life, he did not want to ask for his health because he was able to buy health and if he was sick he could afford to go to the most expensive hospital, he never begged Him to have his wealth endowed and guarded, he was arrogant because feeling with the treasure in his hands he was able to do whatever he wanted, he forgot, he was negligent that God opened for him a key to the world and he was able to take it back from it.
The treasure makes arrogant people so unwilling to do good to get closer to God, for him for what to draw near to God while he can do whatever he likes without God’s help. God said:
Know it! Verily man is transgressing beyond measure (QS. 96: 6)
because he sees himself all too well. (Surah 96: 7)
Here is a story that you need to know. The tale of three Israels, a leper, a bald man and a blind man
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Said that he heard Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) saying, “Allah willed to test three Israelis who were a Leper, a blind man and a bald-headed man. So, he sent them an angel who came to the leper and said, ‘What things do you like most?’ He replied, ‘Good color and good skin, for the people have a strong aversion to me.’ The angel touched him and his illness was cured, and he was given a good color and beautiful skin. The angel asked him, ‘What kind of property do you like best?’ He replied, ‘Camels (or cows).’ (The narrator is in doubt, for either the leper or the bald-headed man demanded camels and the other demanded cows). So he (i.e. the leper) was given a pregnant she-camel, and the angel said (to him), ‘May Allah bless you in it.’ The angel then went to the bald-headed man and said, ‘What things do you like most?’ He said, ‘I like good hair and wish to be cured of this disease, for the people feel repulsion for me.’ The angel touched him and his illness was cured, and he was given good hair. The angel asked (him), ‘What kind of property do you like best?’ He replied, ‘Cows,’ The angel gave him a pregnant cow and said, ‘May Allah bless you in it.’ The angel went to the blind man and asked, ‘What things do you like best?’ He said, ‘(I like) that Allah may restore my eye-sight to me so that I may see the people.’ The angel touched his eyes and Allah gave him back his eye-sight. The angel asked him, ‘What kind of property do you like best?’ He replied, ‘Sheep.’ The angel gave him a pregnant sheep. Afterwards, all the three pregnant animals gave birth to young ones, and multiplied and brought forth so much that one of the (three) men had a herd of camels filling a valley, and one had a herd of cows filling a valley, and one had a flock of sheep filling a valley.
Then the angel, disguised in the shape and appearance of a leper, went to the leper and said, I am a poor man, who has lost all means of livelihood while on a journey. So none will satisfy my need except Allah and then you. In the Name of Him Who has given you such nice color and beautiful skin, and so much property, I ask you to give me a camel so that I may reach my destination.
The man replied, ‘I have many obligations (so I cannot give you).’ The angel said, ‘I think I know you; were you not a leper to whom the people had a strong aversion? Weren’t you a poor man, and then Allah gave you (all this property).’ He replied, ‘(This is all wrong), I got this property through inheritance from my fore-fathers.’ The angel said, ‘If you are telling a lie, then let Allah make you as you were before. ‘ Then the angel, disguised in the shape and appearance of a bald man, went to the bald man and said to him the same as he told the first one, and he too answered the same as the first one did. The angel said, ‘If you are telling a lie, then let Allah make you as you were before.’
The angel, disguised in the shape of a blind man, went to the blind man and said, ‘I am a poor man and a traveler, whose means of livelihood have been exhausted while on a journey. I have nobody to help me except Allah, and after Him, you yourself. I ask you in the Name of Him Who has given you back your eye-sight to give me a sheep, so that with its help, I may complete my journey.’ The man said, ‘No doubt, I was blind and Allah gave me back my eye-sight; I was poor and Allah made me rich; so take anything you wish from my property. By Allah, I will not stop you for taking anything (you need) of my property which you may take for Allah’s sake.’ The angel replied, ‘Keep your property with you. You (i.e the three men) have been tested, and Allah is pleased with you and is angry with your two companions.”
3 – Practice before life-threatening illness
Health is the most precious treasure that is always a human dream, health is a value that can not be appreciated with money, a high favors health after the favors of faith and Islam. With the good favors of human beings able to do a lot of useful life activities, many forms of worship and good deeds that can be implemented, many good charitable fields can be planted.
But when the pain comes, life becomes meaningless, the beauty of life becomes cloudy, ideals and hopes as hard to achieve, time spent with the effort to restore the body’s condition, the opportunity to practice becomes narrow, the charitable fields can no longer be planted. Healthy memories are forgotten many and many people are less appreciative.
Rasulullah saw said:
“The two great favors make people lose money in trading it: healthy and free”
Take a look at ourselves. How much time did we waste, how much time do we put to some worthwhile and benefit us. Let’s reflect ourselves; every step you are taking to improve yourself is a step nearer to Allah. What’s your plan this year?. The year will end soon. What’s your resolution this year. Did you plan or just let the days past by..Think before your health expires.
4 – Predictive before old age
An age trip passes through several phases, from the fetus in the womb, then born into the baby, grows up to a child, clears into adolescence, turns as a mature human and ends up being a parent. God said:
Allah it is Who hath created you from the weak, then hath He made you weak when it is weak; then He has made it after the weak and the gray-haired. I have created what He will, and He is the All-Powerful Knowing, Powerful. (QS. 30:54)
God created human beings as a weak human being when he was a baby and children, then He created a strong human after being a teenager and an adult, then afterward man became weaker when man entered old age and old man often behaving like children.
When humans have entered the final stage of life in this world the face becomes wrinkled, the bones are weakened, the hair is gray-haired, the memory begins to forget, its sense of strength decreases. A wonderful time full of activities in adolescence will no longer return as before, many missed opportunities to miss will not be repeated both times. Praying before the old age is weakening a suggestion that should be contemplated.
5 – Predictably before death comes suddenly
There is no human being who knows his arrival, the mystery that modern science cannot achieve, the riddle of the most genius of human beings, he comes without telling, he picks up people without first giving information, and when death comes cannot be delayed or forwarded for a second. God said:
Every nation has a time limit; But when the time cometh, they cannot deny it for a moment, nor can it prosper. (QS 7:34)
Death took all the age of the ages never distinguishing age, he came to grab the children, teenagers who were actively engaged, dreamed of achieving high ambition, were scraping the ink of the future history, he came to adults and he came to parents . After death there is no longer a life to practice but there is life to get the recompense and reckoning, no more second life in the world there is the ultimate life forever.
6 – Pray before the Antichrist comes
The arrival of the Antichrist before the Day of Judgment is a must-believe fact given by a trusted human being sent to mankind with the truth, Muhammad. He said:
The Antichrist will come to my people and stay forty days ago God sent Jesus son of Mary …
In many authentic hadiths it is explained that the Antichrist will come and be defamatory for humanity as he comes claiming himself to be a god, he comes to man carrying illusions of heaven and hell, what humans see heaven is hell and what he sees hell is heaven.
He came to the man who was dealing with the misfortune of poverty, the breeders who did not get milk in their livestock, the farmers whose plants did not grow plants, they were in difficult circumstances, living in tribulation and Dajjal came claiming to be God, he commanded the sky to lower rain pours over the earth, he orders the earth to bring water to wet the barren land and their land becomes fertile, their plants grow, their animals milk, they live in pleasure after living in distress, they live in prosperity after living in the narrow , they worship the Antichrist because it is considered to have saved their lives. They live in heaven when it is hell.
7 – Practice before Judgment Day arrives
The Day of Judgment will surely turn off all creatures and then revive them to obtain reckoning from all their deeds. After that there is no longer a day to practice because that day is a Day of Retaliation. Go before the end of the day.
