The Earth is one massive stage with 24 hour Surveillance. The sky serves as Canopy, the canopy comprises a Large Video Camera to capture your motions legal or otherwise; and a massive Scanner, this scans your signature as you expend it rightly or otherwise on Documents. If you believe this human technology, why are you not believing in the Angels of Allah s.w.t. The Angel records you round the clock in your wakeful and sane moment. The only time the Angels stop recording is when you are mentally unstable or while you are sleeping.
The truth about life and events is that nothing anyone does goes unnoticed by the Creator of Heavens and the Earth. How be it, mankind is always complaining even in the midst of plenty.
Let’s navigate the blessings of the Creator and see how grateful you are:
The Sun shines in abundance : what does man say? This Sun is too much
The Rains come in torrents: Oh this flood, eh, God save us which kind rain is this?
The mineral Resources: Coal, Led, Gold, Asphalt, Gas, Petroleum and the rest
What do man do: He Kills, robs, cheats, pipes are vandalized
Abundance of human being: abortion is what man uses to thank the Creator
Energy in abundance: blackout, generator fume and noise pollution
You are created light skinned: You Sun bath to darken your skin a bit.
You are created dark skinned: You bleached to lighten it as you wish.
You have short air, you add attachment, artificial, dead or living human.
Long hair, you do low cut
When you are young, you dress like adult
When you are old, you expose flesh dressing skimpily. Haba!
You have foods of all kinds in the Land
You complain of expensive foreign food.
To God Himself: mankind is searching for alternatives!
14:7. And (remember) when your Lord proclaimed: “If you give thanks (by accepting Faith and worshipping none but Allah), I will give you more (of My Blessings), but if you are thankless (i.e. disbelievers), verily! My Punishment is indeed severe.”
All these crimes: election rigging, kidnapping, robbery, miscarriage of Justice, abortions, not to mention the worship of images are all big-time crime. They are all acts of not showing gratitude to God for His favor.
The effect: lack of satisfaction, wars or conflict, floods, strange illnesses, are all the result of your ungrateful attitudes and tendencies.
The warning of Mooussa:
14:8. And Moosa (Moses) said: “If you disbelieve, you and all on earth together, then verily! Allah is Rich (Free of all wants), Owner of all Praise.”
Fear of God is the beginning of Wisdom:
14:18. The parable of those who disbelieve in their Lord is that their works are as ashes, on which the wind blows furiously on a stormy day, they shall not be able to get aught of what they have earned. That is the straying, far away
Any wonder that the parent with little resource was able to nurture his children
Though he borrowed money to educate the child
The parents could not complete the building he started because of expenses
His child not only pay the loans, he completed the building for his parents
Nowadays, you have parents that takes all the money he could steal
Send the child to the most expensive school abroad
Even when the child succeeded academically
He is the one to buy him a car, equip his flat, some are even building houses
Tell me how you can benefit from that child of yours
The first parents lives to ripe old age playing with grand children
Today’s parents are looking for old peoples home
Those days children inherits and value what they inherit from their parents
These days, children steal from parents electronically
The parable of those who disbelieve in their Lord is that their works are as ashes, on which the wind blows furiously on a stormy day, they shall not be able to get aught of what they have earned. That is the straying, far away
The hard Fact:
14:19. Do you not see that Allah has created the heavens and the earth with truth?
If He will, He can remove you and bring (in your place) a new creation!
14:20. And for Allah that is not hard or difficult (i.e. very easy for Allah).
Good Seed grow Good tree and good fruits:
14:24. See you not how Allah sets forth a parable? – A goodly word as a goodly tree, whose root is firmly fixed, and its branches (reach) to the sky (i.e. very high).
14:25. Giving its fruit at all times, by the Leave of its Lord and Allah sets forth parables for mankind in order that they may remember.
Bad Seed grow bad trees and poisonous fruits:
14:28. Have you not seen those who have changed the Blessings of Allah into disbelief (by denying Prophet Muhammad SAW and his Message of Islam), and caused their people to dwell in the house of destruction?
14:29. Hell, in which they will burn, – and what an evil place to settle in!
14:30. And they set up rivals to Allah, to mislead (men) from His Path! Say: “Enjoy (your brief life)! But certainly, your destination is the (Hell) Fire!”
Idols and other images
Wealth is now worshipped
I was informed that god-father or god-mother are also worshipped now
Beauty and strength is now idolized
Associating partner with your Creator is a great Sin
Good deed is a part of Faith:
14:31. Say (O Muhammad SAW) to Ibadee (My slaves) who have believed, that they should perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat), and spend in charity out of the sustenance We have given them, secretly and openly, before the coming of a Day on which there will be neither mutual bargaining nor befriending.
14:32. Allah is He Who has created the heavens and the earth and sends down water (rain) from the sky, and thereby brought forth fruits as provision for you; and He has made the ships to be of service to you, that they may sail through the sea by His Command; and He has made rivers (also) to be of service to you.
14:33. And He has made the sun and the moon, both constantly pursuing their courses, to be of service to you; and He has made the night and the day, to be of service to you.
Each of you have countless favor:
14:34. And He gave you of all that you asked for, and if you count the Blessings of Allah, never will you be able to count them. Verily! Man is indeed an extreme wrong-doer, – a disbeliever (an extreme ingrate, denies Allahs Blessings by disbelief, and by worshipping others besides Allah, and by disobeying Allah and His Prophet Muhammad SAW).
The Desire for a Better Nation:
14:35. And (remember) when Ibrahim (Abraham) said: “O my Lord! Make this city (Makkah) one of peace
You have to walk the talk
Have Faith in Him
Follow the Commandment: your God my God is One God
Benefit of Good deeds:
Volume 3, Book 39, Number 513: Narrated Anas bin Malik:
Allah’s Apostle said, ‘There is none amongst the Muslims who plants a tree or sows seeds, and then a bird, or a person or an animal eats from it, but is regarded as a charitable gift for him.’
Goodness has no boundary
Volume 3, Book 46, Number 694: Narrated Abu Dhar:
I asked the Prophet, ‘What is the best deed?’ He replied, ‘To believe in Allah and to fight for His Cause.’ I then asked, ‘What is the best kind of manumission (of slaves)?’ He replied, ‘The manumission of the most expensive slave and the most beloved by his master.’ I said, ‘If I cannot afford to do that?’ He said, ‘Help the weak or do good for a person who cannot work for himself.’ I said, ‘If I cannot do that?’ He said, ‘Refrain from harming others for this will be regarded as a charitable deed for your own good.’
The essence of life is to know that expressing gratitude for the favor Allah s.w.t has done for you as individual, group or Nation means that you be kind to yourselves, manage the resources, educate and train younger generation and devote worship to Allah s.w.t. That will generate abundance of life for all till eternity. TYC
