A message for those undergoing hard time & difficulties, a reminder for those who are indulged in duniya, a wake up call for us.
SubhanAllaah, we all are in need of constant reminders…
On the authority of al-Baraa ibn 3Aazib (radi-Allaahu 3anhu) who said: “While we were with the Messenger of Allaah sall-Allaahu 3alayhi wa sallam, he suddenly looked towards a group (of people) and said: “For what reason have they gathered here?” It was said: “In order to dig a grave”
So the Messenger of Allaah sall-Allaahu 3alayhi wa sallam became alarmed and startled and he quickly went ahead of his Companions until he reached the grave, then he knelt upon it, and I turned my face towards him sall-Allaahu 3alayhi wa sallam, in order to see what he was doing.
He sall-Allaahu 3alayhi wa sallam cried until the earth became wet with his tears, then he turned to us and said: “O my brothers! Prepare for a day like this”. (1)
(a must watch)
