Before you disobey Allah, remember

Since 2012-11-19

Before you disobey Allah, remember that Allah Almighty sees you. He knows what you hide and what you show in public, as {Allâh knows the fraud of the eyes, and all that the breasts conceal.} [Surat Ghâfir 40:19]

In the Name of Allâh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

 
O dear brother, you, who fear Allah, Glorified and Exalted:
 
- Before you disobey Allah, remember that Allah Almighty sees you. He knows what you hide and what you show in public, as {Allâh knows the fraud of the eyes, and all that the breasts conceal.} [Surat Ghâfir 40:19]
 
{يَعْلَمُ خَائِنَةَ الْأَعْيُنِ وَمَا تُخْفِي الصُّدُورُ‌} غافر: 19
 
Transliteration: YaAAlamu khainata alaAAyuni wamatukhfee alssudooru
 
- Before you disobey Allah, remember that the angels count all your deeds and sayings. They write them down in your book of deeds. Allah says, {Not a word does he (or she) utter but there is a watcher by him ready (to record it).} [Surat Qâf 50:18]
 
{مَّا يَلْفِظُ مِن قَوْلٍ إِلَّا لَدَيْهِ رَ‌قِيبٌ عَتِيدٌ} ق: 18
 
Transliteration: Ma yalfithu min qawlin illa ladayhi raqeebun AAateedun
 
- Before you disobey Allah, remember the moment of death, the moment when the soul leaves your body, while it is severely pulled. At that moment, you will wish that you had turned unto your Lord in repentance. You will wish that you had prayed and had read the Quran. Allah Almighty says, {And one leg will be joined with another leg (shrouded). (29) The drive will be, on that Day, to your Lord (Allâh)!} [Surat Al-Qiyyâmah 75:29-30]
 
{وَالْتَفَّتِ السَّاقُ بِالسَّاقِ ﴿29﴾ إِلَىٰ رَ‌بِّكَ يَوْمَئِذٍ الْمَسَاقُ} القيامة: 29-30
 
Transliteration: Wailtaffati alssaqu bialssaqi (29) Ila rabbika yawmaithin almasaqu
 
- Before you disobey Allah, remember the grave, its torment, and its darkness. It is either a garden from the gardens of Paradise, or a pit from the pits of Hellfire. There, there is no fearful father or a merciful mother.
 
- Before you disobey Allah, remember the day when people are resurrected; barefoot and naked.
 
- Before you disobey Allah, remember the day when the scrolls will fly. Some will take their books of deeds with their right hands, while the others will take them with their left hands.
 
- Before you disobey Allah, remember the day when the sun will draw so close to the heads that there will be left only a distance of one mile. The people will be submerged in perspiration according to their deeds, some up to their heels, some up to their knees, some up to the waist and some will be bridled by perspiration. We seek refuge in Allah.
 
- Before you disobey Allah, remember the day when your organs will testify against you with what they had done of good or evil. Allah says, {Till, when they reach it (Hell-fire), their hearing (ears) and their eyes, and their skins will testify against them as to what they used to do.} [Surat Fussilat 41:20]
 
{حَتَّىٰ إِذَا مَا جَاءُوهَا شَهِدَ عَلَيْهِمْ سَمْعُهُمْ وَأَبْصَارُ‌هُمْ وَجُلُودُهُم بِمَا كَانُوا يَعْمَلُونَ} فصلت: 20
 
Transliteration: Hatta itha ma jaoohashahida AAalayhim samAAuhum waabsaruhum wajulooduhum bima kanoo yaAAmaloona 
 
- Before you disobey Allah, remember the day when the Mujrimûn (criminals, polytheists, sinners), will say, {“Woe to us! What sort of Book is this that leaves neither a small thing nor a big thing, but has recorded it with numbers!” And they will find all that they did, placed before them, and your Lord treats no one with injustice.} [Surat Al-Kahf 18:49]
 
{يَا وَيْلَتَنَا مَالِ هَـٰذَا الْكِتَابِ لَا يُغَادِرُ‌ صَغِيرَ‌ةً وَلَا كَبِيرَ‌ةً إِلَّا أَحْصَاهَا ۚ وَوَجَدُوا مَا عَمِلُوا حَاضِرً‌ا ۗ وَلَا يَظْلِمُ رَ‌بُّكَ أَحَدًا} الكهف: 49
 
Transliteration: ya waylatana ma lihatha alkitabi la yughadiru sagheeratan wala kabeeratan illa ahsaha wawajadoo ma AAamiloohadiran wala yathlimu rabbuka ahadan 
 
- Before you disobey Allah, remember the day when some people from the nation of Muhammad, prayers and peace of Allah be upon him, will be given their scrolls by the left. The Prophet, prayers and peace of Allah be upon him, will say, “‘O Lord, (these are) my companions! O Lord, (these are) my companions!’ And it will be said to him, ‘You do not know what new things they introduced (into the religion) after you.’” [Reported by Al-Bukhari and Muslim]
 
«يا رب أصحابي أصحابي فيقال إنَّك لا تدري ما أحدثوا بعدك» رواه البخاري ومسلم
 
- Before you disobey Allah, remember that you will cross the sirât (path), which is set up by Hellfire. According to your actions, either you will be saved or the clutches of Hellfire will get hold of you. We seek refuge with Allah. Allah Almighty says, {There is not one of you but will pass over it (Hell): this is with your Lord; a Decree which must be accomplished.} [Surat Maryam 19:71]
 
{وَإِن مِّنكُمْ إِلَّا وَارِ‌دُهَا ۚ كَانَ عَلَىٰ رَ‌بِّكَ حَتْمًا مَّقْضِيًّا} مريم: 71
 
Transliteration: Wain minkum illa wariduha kana AAalarabbika hatman maqdiyyan
 
- Before you disobey Allah, remember that you will stand before the Hands of Allah, Glorified and Exalted. There will be no screen or an interpreter between you and Him. Moreover, He will remind you of every sin you have committed.
 
- Before you disobey Allah, remember when the sinner, on the Day of Resurrection, will say, {“Alas, my grief that I was undutiful to Allâh (i.e. I have not done what Allâh has ordered me to do),} [Surat Az-Zumar 39:56]
 
{يَا حَسْرَ‌تَىٰ عَلَىٰ مَا فَرَّ‌طتُ فِي جَنبِ اللَّـهِ} الزمر: 56
 
Transliteration: ya hasrata AAala ma farrattu fee janbi Allahi wain kuntu lamina alssakhireena
 
- Before you disobey Allah, remember Hellfire, the remoteness of its deeps, the severity of its heat, and the torment of its people when they are pulled on their faces.
 
- Before you disobey Allah, remember that sins lead to the lack of success, and the deprivation of knowledge and sustenance. They lead to distress, short life, and sudden death. Sins are the reasons of the vanishing of chastity and modesty. Furthermore, the greatest punishment of sins is that they cause the estrangement between the slave of Allah and his Lord. When this relationship is ruptured, the means of good depart, and the means of evil connect to him.
