Walk like there's no tomorrow

O son, the world's latest developments, His latest af'al (actions), ought to be taken seriously because she is getting very old. She was already aging as described by the Prophet s.a.w during his time and that was more than 1400 years ago. Still we have to walk on her, this aged lady until her last day or our last day, whichever comes sooner. May we walk humbly, hopefully.

And as we walk in this troubled times, we can't help but think about our savior Rasulullah s.a.w. Because of him we could look ahead with much hope. What would we do without him?

As we walk in this troubled times, we can't help but reflect on the great imam and ulama of the past - Imam Al-Ghazali, Shaykh Abdul Qadir Al-Jilani to name but two. Though they have left us hundreds of years ago, they are still able to quench our thirsty souls. What would we do without them?

As we walk in this troubled times, we can't help but anticipate the birth of our future imam. Oh, how we long for his presence. Oh, how much we need him!

In the meantime, we'll have to rely upon someone like him. We'll have to keep walking with a heart reveberating with istighfar for our past misdeeds; walk with a lonely heart that cries salutations to His Beloved so He would take pity and shower much mercy, because we might not walk again tomorrow.

Astaghfirullah al-Azeem

Allahumma salli wa saleem
ala Sayyidina Muhammad
wa 'ala 'ali Sayyidina Muhammad
