One can never be too cautious in making backups in something, or anything at all. Something I learnt over the recent weekend. Well you see here, yes we humans are great planners, we can plan and assume things to go our way. But nevertheless, Allah’s plan will forever be the BEST of all plans.
Sometimes be have to look things in a real perspective.
What I’m trying to say here is that we must always have a plan B. Plan C and D if you will. We will never know what is opt to suddenly happen, of course, it’s a sign of Allah’s decree and mercy upon us when things don’t go the way we planned.
For instance, I had such an amazing plan to get a good productive weekend. Yeah, I ‘planned’; But what really happened is that, I got food poisoning and fever. I wasn’t prepared here with any medication whatsoever, which eventually lead me to end up resting the whole day. So much for productivity.
In spiritual thoughts, just as we know that there will one day be a ‘Judgement Day’, have we made the best preparations for it? Alhamdulillah, Allah gave us our entire worldly lifetime to prepare for the hereafter. But many of the times, we sunk down into the deep mist of dunya. Have we utilise everything up to a point we are fully prepared? Especailly us muslims, we were thought to not waste time as told in *Surah Al-Asr, ( ‘Asr’ meaning time) 1. By (the Token of) Time(through the ages); 2. Verily Man is in loss; 3. Except those who have Faith, and do righteous deeds, and (join together) in the mutual teaching of Truth, and of Patience and Constancy.
Very simple surah with only 3 verses but meaningful. In general, it can be understood that Allah made it clear that humans are in loss except those who are doing righteous deeds, spreading the Truth and being Patient (sabr). There’s a lot more to be ‘tafsir’-ed but in general, it speaks in that such meaning. Allah knows best.
Time is very precious, spend it with those loved ones and make it worth. You will never when the time is up.Wherever you are, I hope you have a delightful day ahead ! Always stand strong when challenges come. Bye!
