Beautiful reminder which shakes your inner being to a sense of urgency and wakefulness.
Ya Rabb remove the barriers between me and Your Pleasure. Please do not allow me to distract me from my goals. And if such a thing does happen, grab me and pull me away from that which is only an adornment of this dunia towards Your Pleasure. Let not my heart wish for adornments of this dunia. Please fill it with the intense desire to seek all that which is with You even if there’s nothing that I get here. For verily, your Promises are true and Your Words are True…Paradise is the Truth…and the Hellfire too is the Truth. Grant me not a moment in this dunia or Akhira empty of Your Pleasure and surround me with those who glorify You Alone with tongue, heart and limbs, all days of their lives…until they meet You with Your Pleasure. Ameen.
إِنَّا جَعَلۡنَا مَا عَلَى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ زِينَةً۬ لَّهَا لِنَبۡلُوَهُمۡ أَيُّہُمۡ أَحۡسَنُ عَمَلاً۬
ٱلۡمَالُ وَٱلۡبَنُونَ زِينَةُ ٱلۡحَيَوٰةِ ٱلدُّنۡيَاۖ وَٱلۡبَـٰقِيَـٰتُ ٱلصَّـٰلِحَـٰتُ خَيۡرٌ عِندَ رَبِّكَ ثَوَابً۬ا وَخَيۡرٌ أَمَلاً۬
Verily! We have made that which is on earth as an adornment for it, in order that We may test them (mankind) as to which of them are best in deeds. [i.e.those who do good deeds in the most perfect manner, that means to do them (deeds) totally for Allâh’s sake and in accordance to the legal ways of the Prophet SAW ]. (7)
Wealth and children are the adornment of the life of this world. But the good righteous deeds, that last, are better with your Lord for rewards and better in respect of hope. (46)
