REMINDER

  In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. All praise and thanks be to Allah, the Lord of the Aalamin (mankind, jinn, and all that exist). Ya Allah! Guide us to the straight way. Lead us to follow the right direction. Turn our face from the glitters of this world to looking forward for the mercy of the hereafter.
   Amma ba’ad, Brothers and sisters, my today’s discussion is about reminding us on what we already knew but were blindly forgotten. I want to remind us about the purpose of our being created.
   Allah (s.w.t) Said “And remind, for verily, the reminding profits the believers”(51:55). This means only the believing hearts benefit from being reminded. Hope this writting of mine could be of benefit to those who come across it. As we all know, Allah(s, w.t) is the creator of all that exist in heavens and on the earth. Then without long discussion or further explaination, we understand that the one who deserve to be worship is none but Allah, the Ever Living, the One who sustains and protects all that exists.
   We Son of Adam and the Jinn, were not just being created because Allah (s.w.t) is looking for helpers. The reason behind the creation of Man and Jinn was mention by Allah in the Qur’an verse 51 chapter 56. “And I created not the Jinn and mankind except that they should worship Me”.
   Allah created mankind and jinn to worship Him Alone, willingly or unwillingly. Those who obey Him will be rewarded with the best rewards,  while those who disobey Him will receive the worst punishment from Him. So whosoever accepts the guidance,  the benefit will return to him. And whosoever goes astray the consequences of that will return to him.
    It is not right to worship anyone or anything except Him Alone. For Allah will not accept any deed unless it is done purely and sincerely for Him Alone. Allah does not need creatures. He the Exalted said, “I seek not any provision from them nor do I ask that they should feed Me”. Rather, we are the one in need of Him in all conditions.  “Verily, Allah is the All-provider,  Owner of power,  the Most strong”.
   Our beloved prophet p.b.u.h said, Allah the Exalted said, “O son of Adam! busy yourself in worshipping Me,  and I will fill your chest with riches.
   Brothers and sisters, since we now know the reason behind our being created. Let us not worship anything or anyone except our Creator. Let’s not ask anyone for help except Allahu subhanahu wata’ala.
Ya Allah, guide us not to disobey You,
        Ya Allah, forgive me my sins,
        Ya Allah,grant me fear of You,
        Ya Allah, grant my wishes, and make my good deeds to be the last thing of my life. Ya Allah! I am learning,  please do not hold me if i made a mistake, instead, give me the opportunity to correct, and direct me to the right way.
ALHAMDULILLAH! ALHAMDULILLAH!!
