Want to know your position at the side of Allah?
The scholars say: if you want to know your position at the side of Allah on the Day of Judgment, look at Allah’s status in your heart. Some of us put their wives ahead of everything, including their parents and claim they love them! Some value their friends, their cars, their jobs and their own whims and desires above Allah! Nothing of these things would ever last. It is a well-known fact: whoever loves something, he will be tortured by it. Yet, whoever loves Allah more than anything else, Allah would make him the happiest person in this life and in the hereafter. These blessed ten days are a good start to evaluate your love to Allah. They are the best days of the whole year. If Allah is on the top of your priority list, offer as many good deeds as you can and stay away from sins as much as possible. If you fail to do this in these beloved days, you are most likely bound to fail throughout the whole year. Now you shall know your position at the side of Allah. O Allah make up better than what people think of us, conceal what they don’t know of us and don’t burden us with what they say about us!
