Assalamu Alaikum

In life, we always seem to need to learn a lesson to get our act right or to think before we take an action.

We seem to always need to have proof, a sign or something to build up our belief.
When we finally open our eyes to the truth, we regret our shortcomings of the past.
You probably don’t get what I’m saying at the moment so let me tell you a very well known incident that occurred.

I’ll give you the story in exactly the same words that we find it in different places on the net:

The Jaguar and the Brick

A young and successful executive was traveling down a neighborhood street going a bit too fast in his new Jaguar.

He was watching for kids darting out from between parked cars and slowed down when he thought he saw something.

As his car passed, no children appeared. Instead a brick smashed into the Jag’s side door!
He slammed on the brakes and drove the Jag back to the spot where the brick had been thrown.

The angry driver then jumped out of the car, grabbed the nearest kid and pushed him up against a parked car shouting,

“What was that all about and who are you? Just what the heck are you doing? That’s a new car and that brick you threw is going to cost me a lot of money. Why did you do it?”

The young boy was apologetic.

“Please mister. . . . please, I’m sorry. I didn’t know what else to do. I threw the brick because no one else would stop”

With tears dripping down his face and off his chin, the youth pointed to a spot just around a parked car.

“It’s my brother. He rolled off the curb and fell out of his wheelchair and I can’t lift him up.”

Now sobbing, the boy asked the stunned executive

“Would you please help me get him back into his wheelchair? He’s hurt and he’s too heavy for me.”

Moved beyond words, the driver tried to swallow the lump in his throat.

He lifted the handicapped boy back into the wheelchair, then took out his handkerchief and wiped at the fresh scrapes and cuts.

Too shook up for words, the man simply watched the boy push his wheelchair-bound brother down the sidewalk toward home.

It was a long, slow walk back to the Jaguar.

The damage was very noticeable but the driver never repaired the dented side door.

There are many lessons in this story; but he kept the dent to remind him of this message:

Don’t go through life so fast that someone has to throw a brick at you to get your attention.

Everyday we are reminded of the ‘whispers’ of our experiences around us.

When our Creator has blessed us with ‘sight’; then why do we continue life blindly.

Sometimes when we don’t take the time to take heed, A ‘brick’ is thrown at us ; so that we may take lessons therefrom.

Alhamdulillah, whoever wrote the lesson at the end has said everthing.
Isn’t it true? Allah Ta’ala’s signs are everywhere. The Qur’an, the book revealed 1400 years ago.
The ONLY book in the world which hasn’t been edited, no words have been changed, no dot has been removed.
There is not a single second of the day when the Qur’an is not being read!
The ONLY book which is read over and over and over again and still one does not feel like putting it down.
The ONLY book that is learnt off by heart by HUNDREDS if not THOUSANDS of people throughout the centuries. NOT years, but CENTURIES.
Not even centuries but EVERY SINGLE DAY OF THE YEAR going back ONE THOUSAND FOUR HUNDRED YEARS AGO!!!!!

IS THIS NOT ENOUGH PROOF FOR US???!!!

Fine then, let’s look at this. Let’s look at the Holiest, most sacred place on earth.
Still ain’t guessed what I’m talking about? Well, I’m talking about Makkah AlMukarammah, as I said before:
The HOLIEST, MOST SACRED PLACE ON EARTH. The centre of the world.
The place where the House of Allah is. The place where THOUSANDS of Muslims go very year to perform Hajj or Umrah.
The place where Muslims, of ALL nationalities, of ALL nations and tribes, stay for a short period of time and UNITE.
The place where one can realise that Allah Ta’ala doesn’t care if you’re black, white or asian it is your A’MAAL that count, it is your amal, your work for deen, your intentions, your belief and NOT your colour, NOT who’s superior to who coz in the sight of Allah Ta’ala, the Most High the Most Great, nobody, not me or you, none of us are superior to the other if we’re white, NONE of us are superior to the other if we’re black or asian but we are at a higher status than the other person because of our DEEDS. Sunhanallah!

The religion of Islam, the true religion, the ONLY religion. So many signs in the world, yet we fail to understand, we don’t want to know the truth, we want to disobey Allah and follow Shaytaan. Is this what we want? NO!

What we want is PEACE, JUSTICE and HARMONY. We don’t want to be attacked by the non-Muslims for every little action we do.
We are portrayed to the world as if we are dirty, as if we are filth, as if Islam teaches us to fight only. NO! Islam is the religion of PEACE.
Just because a few people who call them Muslims go and blow themselves and other innocent people, it does NOT mean that ALL Muslims are evil! NO! We ARE NOT! We are Muslims. We care for the wellbeing of non-Muslims too. These so called Muslims are NOT associates of us.

DON’T YOU GET IT? We are MUSLIMS i.e. PEACE lovers.

Doesn’t ANYONE WANT TO WAKE UP TOP THE TRUTH?????

Can’t anyone see that qiyamah, the Day of Judgement is APPROACHING and it’s not too far away either.

Tall buildings are common these days, people are listening to music more and more, backbiting is widespread, people think that so and so is a trustworthy person whereas he is NOT and think that so and so is not so trustworthy whereas he IS. Can’t you see all these signs, prophesised
none other than Nabi Akram صلى الله عليه و سلم, the Prophet, the Final Messenger, the one for whom the two mountains of The Holy Lands could have been turned into gold for him. The one who even though his sins were forgiven, he stood up in prayer for so long that the Sahaba (R.A.) even enquired as to why he went through so much pain even though the WORLD was made for him, his sins were forgiven, although he was free from sin anyway and he صلى الله عليه و سلم answered: Should I not be grateful to my Lord? Would people like you and I give an answer like this? No, our hearts are too black. We would continue to sin and we would not appreciate the mercy of Allah Ta’ala. So please my brothers and sisters, turn to Allah Ta’ala NOW before it is too late, too late for you to be forgiven. Let us turn to Allah Ta’ala before it is too late, before the sun rises from the west, before we regret, before our supplications to Allah Ta’ala are accepted no more.

Please my brothers and sisters, please remember this sinful servant in your precious duas. Please let your eyes flow with full tawakkul (trust) in Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala. But please, remember me and remember our brothers and sisters and spread the message of Islam.

Love always from your sister in Islam,
